RIM Touch Screen BlackBerry Storm Images from BlackBerry Developer Conference

I just got my first thumbs-on time with the touch screen BlackBerry Storm, and though I’m not quite ready to share my first impressions—those are coming tomorrow—I wanted to post a few images I just snuck snapped at Research In Motion’s (RIM) BlackBerry Developer Conference.
Please excuse the less-than-stellar quality of the images. I didn’t expect the touch screen device to be on display this evening and, therefore, didn’t bring my “good” camera. These shots were snapped with my trusty BlackBerry Curve 8320. (It was also rather dark in the room, and the camera flash kept reflecting off the shiny Storm touch screen.)
The photos were taken at RIM’s booth in the mobility pavilion section of the BlackBerry Developer Conference, and the device is Vodafone branded so it’s not the exact same version Verizon Wireless will release in the United States—according to the Verizon representative at the show, the company plans to release the device “before the end of year.”
(Ok, so the first one’s not the BlackBerry Storm, but I just couldn’t resist…)
