O2 and T-Mobile are both expected to stock the BlackBerry Storm 2 in the UK by the end of the month.
The original BlackBerry Storm 9500 handset was launched in October 2008 on Vodafone exclusively, which has also enjoyed an exclusive run on the Storm 2 9520 follow-up.
However, the Vodafone exclusive ended at the end of December, with the handset being made available SIM-free through distributors. Staff in O2 and T-Mobile stores claim the device will be available from them in the coming weeks also.
Details on pricing are yet to be confirmed. It is likely to be free on a £35 contracts, as the Curve and Bold have been.
T-Mobile and O2 both refused to comment.
