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 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 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

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 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...

Verizon Wireless has released the BlackBerry Storm2, and Shaun Mahal brings us a review. This new smartphone has the same general look and feel as the original, but comes with[...

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

Performance still lacks in some places, Difficult to type quickly and accurately, Poorer sound quality at loudest speakerphone levels

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...
