New BlackBerry draws some lines, even some storms

November 22, 2008

The BlackBerry Storm was greeted with lines of hundreds of people when it went on sale Friday morning.

While it didn’t quite measure up to an iPhone launch day, where many people will have camped out for days, it created more of a stir than most phone launches.

Here are some scenes from a midtown Manhattan store to which police were called as would-be shoppers were annoyed they didn’t get a phone.

But the company said that even if some stores don’t have Storm it does not mean it is sold out as warehouses still have stocks.
