So this is the week of the Storm, the Blackberry Storm that is. Today Verizon Wireless has released the Blackberry Storm onto the world. Will it be a iPhone Killer? We doubt it, will it be a cool choice if your on Verizon Wireless already, sure, but don’t go switching your carrier to try and get this. Plus there are reports of it being in short supply today, so chances you may not even get one. But this phone look cool in pictures and we’ll be taking a look today in person, so we’ll probably give you our style thoughts via our Twitter feed, so be sure to check that out. Ok so what else is going on this week in CE (Consumer Electronics)

New Facebook App Verison Coming in 2009
Though from what we see this new update won’t be touching the completing MySpace app, there will be some new features in this new version. Looks like tighter integration with the Blackberry Calendar and a couple other minor enchancements in our opinion. Check out more at [IntoMobile]

Nokia E71 Coming to AT&T as the E71x?
We’re actually awaiting this phone to arrive to us to review (hopefully today), so be sure to check out our review of it. But coming to AT&T. That would be interesting and it needs to after AT&T dropped that ugly bomb on us back in the way with the Nokia E61! Who could forget that horrible thing called a smartphone. Nokia has redeemed itself with the E71 in terms of style, let’s just hope AT&T redeems themselves as well by offering it. Check out more at [BGR]
MySpace App for Blackberry seems to be a Success
