    Five (5) New or Improved Features of RIM's BlackBerry Storm

    Advertisement



    Update - also see: BlackBerry Storm Hands On, Latest Links, Photos, Videos, News Updates &....

    The BlackBerry Storm has some features that you won't find on other BlackBerry Smartphones...
    1. Touch Screen Navigation, with ClickThrough for user selection - As you enter characters or commands (pressing the screen), your finger receives a subtle click sensation to let you know the device is responding to your input for easy, confident navigation.
    2. Includes BOTH SureType & QWERTY - On screen keyboard: portrait SureType (w/ Multi-tap option) and QWERTY landscape
    3. Best High resolution 480 x 360 pixel color display on BlackBerry
    4. Improved Battery Life - 15 days (Standby time) & 5.5 hours (Talk time)
    5. Typing experience - We like how Engadget put it: "The true test of any touch-based phone is typing, and we won't hold any punches here: we're in love. In fact, we like it enough to pit it against regular button-based keyboards, since it easily leaves traditional touchscreen typing in the dust!"
    6. (Bonus) Arguably the most visually apealing BlackBerry to date!

    Cannt wait to get my hands on this and try it out. I don't believe RIM would bring out a touch screen bb that was hard to type on. I might move from my beloved 8310 to this.
    Hopefully this will have the worldwide impact that the 8100 Pearl had.

    Ditto, I really wanted the Bold and thought this wouldn't fit the BB bill but I must admit I'm seriously impressed. I am really leaning towards wanting this phone. I probably couldn't type messages while driving but Vlingo has come a long way. Then that huge screen will make you salivate.....

    The more I see, the more I want it.........and from the first I heard about it I was anti-touch screen.........but I'm being converted I think. I can't wait till it gets released so I can go to the store and play with one at least

    Alas, I'm an AT&T Small Business Customer, so will have to wait until they develop a GSM version. I'll be "stuck" with the Bold until then.

    Well I'm with Alltel which will soon be Verizon......so it will be very tempting.....but I won't get it for a while.......I have a son who's gonna be turning 16 soon and starting to take college classes......he needs a car and a new laptop........So I guess I'll be keeping my 8330 for a while

    Love the way the touch screen responds to your finger.

    i'm an addict to bb. Now, i am really on to this Bold! I can't hardly wait to get my hands on this. Surely, this will blow the compettion away!
