Excerpt: The BlackBerry Storm promises to be a great alternative to more expensive smartphones in the market. Boasting a great combination of connectivity and entertainment functions this touchscreen phone is highly recommended to any type of user.
Summary: Top marks to RIM for not trying to copy Apple too much with its first touchscreen phone. And then take all those marks away again for not trying to copy Apple too much with its first touchscreen phone.
Excerpt: Blackberry customers are generally concerned more with catching up with their emails than EastEnders . The Storm (a Vodafone exclusive handset), looks to encourage users to do both. The handset looks and feels like a premium device – more than the iPhone 3G . On the back is a 3.2MP camera and a brushed aluminium battery cover. On the front, in the place of BlackBerry's usual QWERTY keypad, is a touch-screen that acts like one big button.
Pros: Solid design, desirable styling, good picture quality, great call quality
Cons: ', Clickable', touchscreen can be hit and miss, average sound quality, comes with only 1GB of storage
Conclusion: The BlackBerry Storm 9500 is one feature and technology packed mobile phone. There are so many features and functions for the user to not only enjoy but for the business practical uses that it has seeing as it is a built with business in mind. The handset certainly is stylish and the user of this mobile phone will almost surely be proud to own it. Checkout the New BlackBerry Storm 2 .
Summary: The BlackBerry Storm advances the touch-screen concept by introducing a clickable screen to select items. This places it a cut above the user interface of Apple's iPhone, in our opinion, but the Storm is very much a consumer device, and we expect it will not appeal to RIM's traditional corporate user base owing to its lack of a physical keyboard.
Summary: The Storm's clickable display has given us confidence in touchscreens we haven't enjoyed before now. It won't be for everyone, but those who master this system will be rewarded with an excellent smartphone experience.
Pros: Touchscreen and SurePress tech, Excellent video codec recognition, 3.5mm headphone socket, Decent battery life, BlackBerry's excellent business functionality
Cons: No Wi-Fi, Some performance lag, Could use more than 1GB internal storage
Summary: We commend RIM for entering the highly competitive touchscreen market with an innovative product, but there's still lots of room for improvement. Our experience with the Storm has driven us to the conclusion that it's not RIM's best device and while it has some redeeming features we think RIM can do much better in the future
Pros: Crisp and sharp display, GPS and HSDPA, Extensive media support
Cons: No Wi-Fi, A few interface bugs still need to be ironed out, Camera doesn't always take good shots
Excerpt: It's been nearly two years since Steve Jobs first demonstrated the iPhone , a move that shocked the mobile phone industry. The iPhone wasn't just a "bit better" but a completely different approach.
