  • I must admit I've never used a Blackberry before so I cannot compare between models, but the Storm seems to be an excellent device, a comprehensive PDA, cellular phone and mini-computer all rolled into one slick touch screen device
  • The unit itself is quite pricey which puts it just out of reach of the average consumer, though I doubt they are missing much with the influx of cheaper, similarly capable devices on the market

      The much-anticipated and hyped Blackberry Storm from RIM has finally been released, but the first touch screen smartphone from the company has been met with mixed reactions.

      I must admit I’ve never used a Blackberry before so I cannot compare between models, but the Storm seems to be an excellent device, a comprehensive PDA, cellular phone and mini-computer all rolled into one slick touch screen device. It features a 3.25-inch single and multi-touch display, but like


      other similar devices, the interface is not intuitive and will often result in incorrect inputs or the need for repeated presses. It has a built in accelerometer that automatically shifts the display from portrait to landscape with a tilt of the device, but again as with many devices of this type, its just not as well implemented as the Apple iPhone or iPod Touch.

      The device comes with an included 8GB memory card for multimedia files,


      • and thanks to the excellent screen, images and video playback is crystal clear. It has a 3.2MP camera, which seems dated considering that many cellular phones have now reached the 8MP mark. Connectivity can be achieved via Bluetooth, 3G HSDPA or WiFi, so you’ll always be connected wherever you go. The Storm features built in GPS, also a standard among cellular devices these days.

        A subscription to the Blackberry service is well priced and offers unlimited

        web browsing and email, though you will be charged if you use the phone as a wireless modem. The unit itself is quite pricey which puts it just out of reach of the average consumer, though I doubt they are missing much with the influx of cheaper, similarly capable devices on the market. Like Nokia’s 5800 Xpress Music, RIM’s first touch screen Blackberry is a work in progress that can only get better with future iterations.
