    While there are many users who have been quite happy with their original BlackBerry Storm, others hated it, especially the way the Storm screen clicks. But RIM has changed the technology used for the upcoming Storm 2 and this video explains how it works and shows it in action. Check it out!

    I saw this yesterday on crackberry and I am impressed. I cannot wait until the Storm 2 comes out now. Hopefully in time for Christmas here in Canada

    I can't wait to play with it....looks tempting, but I may change carriers in Dec. and steer clear of AT&T and VZW due to their high plan prices compared to T-Mo and Sprint.....every day I change my mind about what carrier and what phone I want

    I saw this yesterday too and the previous leaked vids on the S2. My upgrade is in Nov and this is probably what I'll be upgrading to having seen/read so far. The screen tech looks cool but I need to get my hands on it to really get a better understanding of how it works.

    That should have been the original Storm even if it meant we all had to wait since the Storm 1 has turned so many off, I'm not sure if it did more harm or good to RIM's rep. The limitations he mentions are some of the main reasons my Storm 1 is sitting and collecting dust. This looks like the best of the iPhone killers out thus far.

    I like you and many others have my Storm 1 "not in use".

    I agree, this is what the first Storm should have been.


    BTW..

    Why... is it that everything is either an i-phone killer, or not...?

    do we need a saviour to save us from the dreaded i-phone warlord or something..???

    Cool. The click can be annoyying. You ever try putting it in lanscape and try hitting the 's' with your right hand? Impossible.

    Blackberry Storm 2

    Greetings All,

    Ok, so I just looked at a Video Preview of the upcoming Blackberry Storm 2. Ok there are two versions. 9550 for CMDA for Verizon and 9520 to hit the states on ATT....can anyone confirm this?? Currently, i'm using an BB Bold but am getting bored with it and just wanted to know the next bb coming out on ATT.

    Thanks and Take Care

    I love how he keeps going on and on about how easy and better the keyboard is for texting but never actually uses the functions.

    I have both the iPhone and the Storm 1, The storm I gave to my dad because the screen was way to slow for me when I wanted to do something ie. texting, browsing, etc... perfect for him though because he types as fast as that sprint commercial advertises (lol). I have no complaints with my iPhone just complaints with AT&T lacking the support that they promised.

    Maybe when they storm 2 comes out it might bring me back to the DARK side but until ill stick to my iPhone and continue to outperform almost everything.

    • Inspiration is like a lost sock. When your searching you can never find it, and when it appears, you least expect it.
    • There are no exceptions to the rule that everybody likes to be an exception to the rule.
    • Ideas are the factors that lift civilization. They create revolutions. There is more dynamite in an idea than in many bombs.
    • Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.
