Vodafone has revealed, in a roundabout way, that it is launching the BlackBerry Storm in the UK, confirming Pocket-lint's leak earlier in the month.

The page on Vodafone's website gives users the chance to win the new smartphone by registering their details.

The site says: "Get the incredible power of the BlackBerry Storm smartphone in your hands. Simply register your interest in this new BlackBerry phone and we'll keep you up to date with launch news as it breaks. Plus, by signing up, you'll automatically be entered into our prize draw to win your very own BlackBerry Storm smartphone".

No other details are given as to when the official launch date will be however Pocket-lint's sources have previously confirmed that an announcement is due at the beginning of October, with product in store at the end of the month.

Interestingly the competition runs until the 25 October...

Thanks to Ian for the tip off.
