    BlackBerry Storm 2: the official unofficial hands-on

    Advertisement



    by Sean Cooper, Engadget


    We've been bumping into the new BlackBerry Storm 2 for quite a while now on the so-called "information superhighway," but we've finally had a chance to escalate those encounters and spend a few sweet moments with a live unit in the flesh. First off, let's confirm the huge news: RIM's abandoned the original Storm's SurePress click-screen and gone with a traditional fixed capacitive display for the sequel. It's over, guys. Unfortunately, the Verizon-branded dual-mode GSM / CDMA unit that we played with has a bug preventing us from getting past the license screen so we couldn't dive deep into the OS (and yeah, we tried scrolling to the bottom of the agreement -- no dice), but we can tell you what we do know: the Storm 2's sleeker style and more heft combined with the newly-stable screen collaborate to make everything feel a wee bit higher end than the original. Follow the break for more impressions!

    iy looks good. I like the design of it and also thefact that they didnt diviate to far from the original. i really interested in what they replaced the sure press with (if they infact did)I for one like sure press,i havent had my storm for no more than 2 1/2 weeks but for now i really like the feedback it gives.

    This is bs. I'm sick of verizon, the same way I'm sick of Kobe and the Lakers.

    Why would they drop SureType?? That's dumb it was an amazingly unique feature from RIM and they dropped it.

    Oh well its still a BlackBerry so heh it should be good.

    why you want to get a lackluster iphone? if your not satisfied with a storm1 with .148 beta loaded on it ...the storm may not be for you.
