If the insider tip gathered by our source is correct, we might see the BlackBerry Storm launched on Bell in two weeks time. December 15th is the rumored official outing of this highly anticipated touchscreen device which serves to confirm speculation that it would be released in the second half of December. While we're still not completely sure how much it will cost, the same informant revealed that it will be offered for $299 on a 3-yr contract with a disclaimer at the end stating that “prices may vary depending if Telus changes there’s.”

If it does change, let's just hope that it's for the better (read: $199 for a 3-yr plan). Anyway, with December 15th fast approaching, we’ll probably hear an official announcement in the coming days.
