BlackBerry Storm commercials are appearing on TV

Larry posted a bit earlier about the possible 17 November launch date for the BlackBerry Storm. I don't watch much TV, but I have already seen two Storm commercials (one can be found on YouTube) so I think the date is most likely correct. You can also check out the BlackBerry Storm 9530 interactive guide. It is interesting to see that the main steps shown in device setup include inserting the SIM card, yet the Storm is launching with Verizon on their CDMA network where SIM cards are not used. I understand Vodafone should be getting a GSM version of the Storm, yet the link for the demo clearly indicates it is for the US market.
