BlackBerry Storm 2 Review

 

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

BlackBerry Storm2 9550 (Verizon)

 

The BlackBerry Storm2 9550 is the powerful touch-screen smartphone RIM should have delivered the first time.

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).

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions The Storm2 includes 2GB of on-board memory and a 16GB SanDisk microSD card in the box; the card slot is underneath the battery cover, which pops off smoothly. A proper 3.5mm headphone jack is on the right side near...

BlackBerry Storm 2 (Verizon Wireless) review:

 

Editors' note : This review has been updated since the original publish date with ratings after receiving final software for the product.

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.

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.

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 Storm 2 Review

 

The BlackBerry Storm 2 is a nice upgrade from the original version. It has a remodeled design as well as Wi-Fi capability, adding another alternative for going online.

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

BlackBerry Storm2 9550

 

The Storm2 excites me because it's genuinely a great product, it's proof that RIM can bridge the divide between "professional" and "multimedia," and perhaps most importantly, it's the company's first legitimate stab at the touchscreen market....

BlackBerry Storm2 9550 review | PhoneDog

 

What's Good: Screen is far easier to use thanks to the addition of electronic sensors; OS 5.0 improves overall device functions dramatically. What's Bad: Despite improvements, SurePress is still harder to use than similar industry competitors. ...
