The Storm 2 is an improvement to the original device, but is it worth the price tag? Take a look.

BlackBerry Storm2 9520 review: Back in Black... Berry

 

RIM are a company with style and simply hopping on the touchscreen bandwagon with another iPhone wannabe just wouldn't suit them. They certainly realized the importance of having a full-touch device in their portfolio but wanted a clear and legible...

The BlackBerry Storm 9500 was a truly intriguing device but never really managed to find its place in the new market it was built for. Too bold and unusual for the BlackBerry-loyals and yet too conservative for the rest of the world, it didn't quite...

BlackBerry Storm2 (Verizon Wireless) Review

 

If there were a most improved award for smart phones, the BlackBerry Storm2 would win hands-down. The new touchscreen makes this device much easier to use than its predecessor, and the typing experience rivals or beats most other devices in its class....

Vastly improved touchscreen and typing experience, Faster overall performance, Speedier Web browsing, Good camera and camcorder

Somewhat dated interface, Still a bit bulky and heavy, Far fewer apps than iPhone or Android

BlackBerry Storm 2 ( Verizon Wireless)

 

The RIM BlackBerry Storm 2 adds Wi-Fi, more memory, and an updated operating system that brings a number of feature and user interface enhancements. The revamped SurePress touch screen allows for more precision, key rollover, and limited multitouch...

BlackBerry browser isn't on par with the competition. While improved, the touch screen still takes some acclimation.

The RIM BlackBerry Storm 2 brings some welcome additions, such as Wi-Fi, updated software, and a better touch interface, but it's going to face some serious competition from Verizon's upcoming touch-screen smartphones.

Sharp, large screen, Sleek form factor, 3.2 megapixel camera with auto-focus, flash, video

Review: BlackBerry Storm2 - what the BlackBerry Storm should have been

 

Earlier this week we wrote about the Storm2 coming to Verizon Wireless on October 28th. Well, today is October 28th and we've been playing with the handset since before the weekend and have detailed our initial thoughts below. If you're not familiar...

BlackBerry Storm2 Review - Phone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review

 

When the original BlackBerry Storm came out a year ago, we had great hopes for RIM's first touch screen BlackBerry smartphone. But as with any radically new product, the Storm had its share of bugs (quite a few were fixed in ensuing software updates)...

Large display is easy on the eyes, SurePress much improved

Still no reason for the moving display

Take two of the Storm is the real deal: the touch screen works well, the phone has more memory, a new OS and is altogether stable and less buggy than the original Storm. The large screen is a rare treat for the mainly QWERTY BlackBerry line and it...

BlackBerry Storm2 First Impressions Review

 

Less than 12 months have gone by since Verizon debuted the original, much-anticipated BlackBerry Storm. This was to be the ground-breaking, iPhone-killing hybrid boasting all the best qualities of a BlackBerry with a large touchscreen borrowed from...

It's not the phone that Verizon or RIM wants it to be. It's still clunky on the inside, and using it is not as intuitive as it should be. I find myself second guessing if I struck the right keys, and it almost seems as if the voice quality on...
