A good sign your gadget will sell at least a few copies: Scores of people are lined up in the cold to buy one.
So while people wait for their chance to buy the new touchscreen BlackBerry Storm, Research In Motion (RIMM) shares are far outpacing the overall market: They’re up 6% right now, according to Yahoo, nearing $44.
The Storm probably won’t beat the iPhone this Christmas, but it will at least help RIM and Verizon (VZ) compete much better with Apple (AAPL) and AT&T (T).
