While Verizon Wireless isn't exactly following hot on the heels of AT&T
with its purported Global VZ Navigator, phoneArena
has it that the carrier's BlackBerry Storm
will become VZW's first handset to support the software later this quarter. Not that such news is a big shock given the worldly capabilities of this here smartphone, but it's still good news for globetrotters who'd rather not carry a dedicated PND. We're told that the service will go for $20 per month, with Mexico, Canada, France, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom being supported right out of the gate.
