Apple isn't the only gadget company with a fanbase willing to wait on line for new releases. Check out this queue for the BlackBerry Storm on Broadway in the Flatiron District. Research In Motion's $200 touch-screen smart phone, which debuted today in Verizon stores around the country, is the latest in a stream of cellular devices created to compete with the iPhone. According to Reuters, hundreds of people lined up this morning to buy one. It's no iPhrenzy, but still, not a bad turnout.
