BlackBerry Storm in a traffic jam somewhere near you?

Reported by trade mag, Mobile Today, the much anticipated and lusted after (by BlackBerry aficionados) BlackBerry Storm was no where to be seen in some Vodafone stores last weekend.

Considering the Sunday Mail had a favourable comparison between the Storm and iPhone 3G, there would have been many of the 70,000 people left acutely disappointed with the lack of stock.

Considering the debacle over at Orange with the BB Bold (network issues), Vodafone had an opportunity to show how a handset launch should be handled, especially as Vodafone used Lewis Hamilton as part of its campaign.

Perhaps McLaren should have delivered the phones instead.
