Summary: Design Blackberry Storm 9500 is not only the first Blackberry device with a touch screen, but also the first to lack a physical keyboard. For businessmen, who are the main target of the smartphone, this might sound pretty awkward at first glance. To substitute this lack of keypad, RIM has introduced a new, innovative technology called SurePress. RIM's SurePress patented technology makes the touch screen physically react like a button when pressed.
Pros: As a business tool, the Blackberry Storm 9500 should be considered an exceptionally good smartphone. The wide range of messaging capabilities, as well as the HSDPA connectivity, make the device very appealing. I would also like to mention the surprisingly good multimedia features, the 3.2-Megapixel camera, but also the good battery of the handset.

Excerpt: Laurence Hartje just sent in a mini-review of the BlackBerry Storm on the Vodafone network, here it is in it’s entirety: I’ve been lusting after a Storm, and since it launched in England before the US (and I’m over here at the moment) I thought I’d swing by a Vodaphone store to play with one.
Conclusion: Hardware wise, RIM has almost all its bases covered and with the exception of Wi-Fi, you will find the Storm is up-to-date. Wi-Fi isn’t necessarily a requirement on Blackberry devices in this region since as most people here have an unlimited data plan. That, along with HSDPA/3G is fast enough for most of the things you’d use the device for. The Storm comes with 128MB of RAM as well as 1GB built-in storage for your personal files.
