Remember "the first touchscreen BlackBerry," the Storm?
For a moment, it was nearly outshined by the new $49 Curve 8520, Tour and rumored Onyx.
Just one month ago, Verizon dropped the Storm's price to $99.99.
Now maker RIM is getting desperate...by offering the smartphone for $49.99 with two-year contract.
To boot, the move rids of inventory in anticipation of the upcoming BlackBerry Storm 2, due in October.
