BlackBerry Storm2 9550 (Verizon)

PC Magazine
17 April 2010
  • Conclusion: The second time's the charm for RIM's innovative click-screen smartphone; the Storm2 cures almost all of the original's ills.
  • Pros: Vastly improved touch screen. Wi-Fi. True world phone. Powerful messaging and multimedia support.
  • Cons: 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).

  • Summary: 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.

  • Conclusion: Despite the very similar design and software, the RIM BlackBerry Storm2 9550 manages to be a major improvement over the Storm 9530 .  This change can be attributed almost wholly to the improvement in RIM’s clickable screen, which now can register multiple inputs properly and due to the four sensor...

  • Cons: It works now, but we’re still not sold on the whole clickable touchscreen idea, Battery may be a concern for very heavy users

The large screen is a rare treat for the mainly QWERTY BlackBerry line and it makes web browsing, video playback and working with...
  • Pros: Large display is easy on the eyes, SurePress much improved.
  • Cons: Still no reason for the moving display.
