BlackBerry Storm Reviews:BlackBerry Storm Review – BlackBerry Storm reviews by Wire and The Wall Street Journal (video) are below:
The main problem with touch phones is that there is no real way of indicating when you have pressed a key or selected an application. The haptic buzzing found on various iClones is a joke. And the iPhone’s complete lack of force feedback is almost as bad. Remember the first time you picked up an iPhone and started text messaging with it? Sucked right? You had no clear physical indication when you selected a key. That’s the crucial difference with the Storm: the 4-inch, 480×360 screen is essentially one huge button. When you want to select anything, be it a multimedia app or the number five, you have to press the screen down a millimeter, it’s roughly the same sensation you get when clicking a mouse. But that small press makes a huge difference. Text messaging is amazing — pounding out a long-winded SMS (with a lot of compound words and no abbreviations) is just as easy as typing one out on a MacBook’s keyboard. This is the single killer feature of the Storm and if not for a few glaring flaws, a good reason to go out and buy one right now.
Also making an appearance is a very capable 3.2-MP camera. While it lacks the fancypants lenses found in better camera phones (cough, Carl Zeiss, cough) it does have a flash and snaps off some pretty decent, noiseless pics. Also included is a video recorder — take that iPhone!
Web surfing on the device is good, not great. The fully realized browser pulls up pages quickly but also suffers from a lack of flash support. Cut-and-paste functionality works almost perfectly, as does text editing. All of RIM’s e-mail goodness and top-shelf messaging are also effortlessly integrated into the device. For better or for worse, you never forget that you are using a BlackBerry.
That’s all we have for now on BlackBerry Storm Reviews:BlackBerry Storm Review.
