Vodafone has revealed it will be offering RIM's latest smartphone, the BlackBerry Storm2, in the UK from the end of October.

The smartphone, which is an update on last year's BlackBerry Storm, features a 3.25in 360x480 touchscreen with an updated version of the BlackBerry SurePress technology, which provides tactile feedback when the touchscreen is pressed.

Wi-Fi connectivity will also be offered - a feature that was not available on the previous BlackBerry Storm model. Built-in GPS, 3G and Bluetooth connectivity will also be included.

The BlackBerry Storm2 will be available on Vodafone this month

Vodafone said the BlackBerry Storm2 will be available free to users that take out a 24-month contract with 600 minutes of talk-time, unlimited texts and unlimited access to the web, at a cost of £35 per month.
