Do you want to be guaranteed a BlackBerry Storm once it hits store shelves? If so, better head on over to Best Buy and cough up $50 so you can reserve one for yourself when it finally becomes available in the US.

If for whatever reason you cannot buy RIM’s first full touchscreen phone, the $50 reservation fee is refundable. Unfortunately, while Best Buy is already taking orders for the yet-to-be-released device, there’s still no definite date for its release.

We're left wondering if a similar promotion will take place in Canada? It’s not a bad idea considering that there's definitely a market for the Storm in this country and it's already confirmed on both Bell and Telus. How about it Best Buy Canada? Can we give you $50 in advance for a promise of a Storm on release day?
