Word’s out that Verizon will start offering the BlackBerry Storm smartphone for $299, but there might be a $100 rebate in there, so keep your fingers crossed. Now, passing to the news of the day, Verizon will give the BlackBerry fans a chance to win a Storm, 50 units to be more precise.

You’ll be able to win one if you search for certain clues hidden across Manhattan (what a bummer for the rest of the world). Once you find a clue, it’ll come with a keyword that allows you to enter the competition via SMS.

This challenge starts on November 6th and it will come to an end on the 15th, so start looking for those clues right about now.
