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.
