BlackBerry Storm2 hands-on and impressions

 

For a company with the most starched, buttoned-up roots of any major wireless manufacturer, RIM's venture out of its enterprise comfort zone to the consumer space went amazingly smoothly thanks to the introduction of the original Pearl, a phone that's...

Has WiFi, unlike the Storm ; Hardware looks great ; Decent camera

SurePress still doesn't make sense ; Awful web browser ; No native IMAP support

BlackBerry Storm 2

 

Yes, the BlackBerry Storm 2 is a vast improvement over the original BlackBerry Storm smartphone. However, that isn't saying much because, as befitted its name, the latter handset was pretty much a disaster. Worth noting, though: The Storm 2 does have a...

BlackBerry with a touchscreen ; Large, bright display ; WiFi connectivity ; Long battery life ; Pre-installed 16 GB microSD card included

Annoying user interface ; Slow Web connection ; Below-average camera performance ; Heavy ; Poor voice quality at caller end

In our Blackberry Storm 2 review, we find out if BlackBerry has improved upon the criticized first generation storm....

BlackBerry Storm2 Review

 

The original BlackBerry Storm failed to sweep through the smartphone sector in the way RIM had hoped it would, criticized for its frustrating SurePress touchscreen technology, glitchy firmware and – most damningly – not being all that hot at messaging....

Our remaining doubts concern how well the Storm2 stands as a prosumer device compared to its flourishing Android, iPhone and webOS rivals. Each has areas in which they better the Storm2, whether in usability, responsiveness, browser experience or media...

BlackBerry Storm 2

 

When the BlackBerry Storm debuted last fall, RIM's first touchscreen device received not-so-stellar reviews. RIM took reviewers' and customers' gripes into consideration, however, when designing the BlackBerry Storm 2 ($200 with a two-year contract...

Storm finally gets Wi-Fi ; Good camera

Audio playback could be better ; SureType still feels awkward

The BlackBerry Storm 2 is an overall improvement from its predecessor, but SureType still feels a bit unintuitive.

BlackBerry Storm2 9550

 

The click screen—the source of so much controversy surrounding the original Storm—is entirely new. It's a 3.3-inch, 360-by-480 pixel SurePress glass touch screen that supports 65K colors. The four front-panel function buttons are now touch-based and...

Vastly improved touch screen. Wi-Fi. True world phone. Powerful messaging and multimedia support

Browser doesn't live up to the screen's potential. Touch still feels grafted on at times. Still a bit buggy (though nowhere near as bad as the first Storm)

The second time's the charm for RIM's innovative click-screen smartphone; the Storm2 cures almost all of the original's ills.

Blackberry Storm2

 

The BlackBerry Storm2 9550 is RIM's second touchscreen (that's more of a push-screen) smartphone. Although the form factor and design hasn't changed too much in this version, there are a few noteworthy upgrades: an improved touchscreen experience, the...

RIM BlackBerry Storm2 9550 Review

 

On paper the Storm was a success for RIM and Verizon. In the flesh, not so much. It was plagued by software issues that were eventually ironed out, but more so by the utter failure of RIM's SureType technology. The screen was cumbersome to use, tiring...

RIM BlackBerry Storm2 9550 Preview

 

After a lackluster debut into the touchscreen arena RIM's second effort aims to right the wrongs of SurePress with the BlackBerry Storm2 9550. There are few changes in the clickable screen and the sensors registering your input, but otherwise the...

BlackBerry Storm2 Review: Design

 

At FoneArena's Mumbai office, we have had a chance to play with the BlackBerry Storm2 and put it through its paces. We break down our analysis in parts, the first being – Design.

So does this mean that BlackBerry Storm2 is an awesome looking device? Yes and a bit of No. I wish BlackBerry had kept a continuous flow of design. They have improved the overall look of the device, but some gremlins remain. A good phone with one of...

BlackBerry Storm2 delivers improved touch screen and adds Wi-Fi

 

Reviewers agree that the BlackBerry Storm2, Verizon's world-roaming BlackBerry with Wi-Fi capablity, is a vast improvement over its bug-ridden predecessor, but it's still no match for more sophisticated touch-screen devices such as the Apple...

Strong business functionality, brilliant 3.3-inch display, superb video playback, wi-Fi and global 3G network support

Tedious touch screen, dated user interface, sluggish web browser, shorter battery life than other BlackBerrys
