BlackBerry Storm 2 Out Now
A little over a year after the BlackBerry Storm was released, the second generation Storm has arrived. On October 28, the Storm 2 hit the stores with the promise of a lot of updated features.
The new phone will significantly improve upon the touch-screen feature that the original Storm currently has. It will now, supposedly, be much easier to click on the screen—the user will not have to press quite as hard in order to get a response from the phone.
The Storm 2 will also feature higher resolution displays, a 3.2 megapixel camera, and more memory (256 flash, 2G onboard), built-in GPS, BlackBerry OS 5, as well as other updated features—including both hardware and software. The best upgrade, in my opinion, is that the Storm 2 will have Wi-Fi capability.
As for pricing, according to PC World, the phone will be sold for “$280 when you sign a two-year service contract with Verizon Wireless. Verizon is offering a $100 mail-in rebate, which knocks the price down to $180, but that rebate comes in the form of a Visa debit card, not an actual check.”
