Updating the blackberry storm
Contents of Verizon's final sale package might vary, but RIM did say that a number of carriers have signed on to include a 16GB memory card in the box. For more add-ons, please check our cell phone accessories, ringtones, and help page.
Features The RIM Black Berry Storm 2 brings several notable additions in the features department, including built-in Wi-Fi, more memory, and an updated operating system that brings a number of enhancements to the smartphone's various applications and some of the aforementioned UI improvements.
With practice, of course, it gets better, and the smartphone offers predictive text and autocorrection.
In all, we'd say the new Sure Press interface is better than the previous version, but it still doesn't feel as precise as some of the other touch-screen smartphones.
In addition, when the phone is completely off, the screen doesn't move at all.
The electronic Sure Press technology also allows for key rollover and faster typing.
The RIM Black Berry Storm 2 will be available starting October 28 for 9.99 with a two-year contract and after a 0 mail-in rebate.
Design At first glance, the RIM Black Berry Storm 2 doesn't look that much different from its predecessor.
The Storm 2 also supports multitouch for copy/paste so you can place one finger at the beginning of the text and then the other at the end of the selection and then cut/copy/paste.However, it takes some acclimation and similar to the Sure Type keyboards, we think it's something you'll either learn to like or hate.The display itself measures 3.2 inches diagonally and has a half-VGA resolution (480x360).You do get a full QWERTY keyboard in both portrait and landscape mode.With the new technology, the keyboard did feel easier to use and more precise than the previous Storm's, but we still made multiple mistakes when typing messages.
