The Blackberry Storm Reviewed

The world’s first touchscreen BlackBerry, the Storm is already kicking up a proverbial storm. Dubbed a “revolutionary smartphone”, this member of the BlackBerry family comes chock full of an impressive set of multimedia capabilities, plus global connectivity.

Packaged to satisfy the needs of both the consumer and business customer, the stylish Storm is part of the BlackBerry 9500 series of phones. The Storm features a touchscreen which reacts physically like a button via SurePress, a Research In Motions (RIM) patented technology of providing hap tic feedback.

The BlackBerry Storm is said to have “very high consumer adoption”. According to Mark Guibert, vice president of corporate marketing at RIM, “Consumers and business customers alike will appreciate the BlackBerry Storm smartphone for its exceptional communications and multimedia features, as well its innovative ‘clickable’ touchscreen which solves long-standing challenges associated with typing on traditional touch-screens”.
