BlackBerry Storm 2 Review

10 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Yes, the BlackBerry Storm 2 is a vast improvement over the original BlackBerry Storm smartphone. However, that isn’t saying much because, as befitted its name, the latter handset was pretty much a disaster. Worth noting, though: The Storm 2 does have a capacitive touchscreen with software that mimics tactile resistance, unlike the clunky mechanical screen found on its predecessor. Inside, the cell phone also has more features and memory.
  • Pros: BlackBerry with a touchscreen, Large, bright display, WiFi connectivity, Long battery life, Pre-installed 16 GB microSD card included
  • Cons: Annoying user interface, Slow Web connection, Below-average camera performance, Heavy, Poor voice quality at caller end

What Hi-Fi?
4 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Research in Motion (RIM) has been working hard to bring its BlackBerry devices out of the boardroom and into the pockets of the masses. Built on a background of unrivalled email access, the company is waking up to the idea of maximising web browsing as well as audio and video performance. The Storm2 looks and feels like a weighty, premium product and marks the most obvious step into all-round entertainment territory.
  • Pros: Premium feel, great email service, easy and intuitive to use, App World is growing
  • Cons: Video performance is poor, audio and web browsing could be better, ‘SurePress’ control system is unconvinving

  • Excerpt: When RIM launched the BlackBerry Storm in 2008 it was greeted with a mixed reception. Some loved it, others (like Stephen Fry) hated it. So can the second attempt fix the problems and give BlackBerry users a viable touchscreen experience? We've been using one for a couple of weeks to find out.
  • Pros: Email service, screen quality
  • Cons: The SurePress screen is stiff, no multi-touch, OS looking stale, browser
