BlackBerry Storm designed to meet the needs of both consumers and business customers, the BlackBerry Storm smartphone combines the powerful communications features, global connectivity and personal productivity advantages of the BlackBerry ® platform with a Revolutionary-touch screen technology that dramatically enhances the touch interface and enables easy and precise typing. The world's first "clickable" touch screen responds much like the physical keyboard and also supports one-touch, multi-touch and gestures for intuitive and efficient application navigation.
In the United States, Verizon Wireless customers will benefit from the nation's most reliable wireless voice network and the pervasiveness of Verizon Wireless' reliable high-speed 3G Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) Revision A (Rev. A) network for rich Internet browsing and applications multimedia. In Europe, India, Australia and New Zealand, Vodafone will support customers with high-speed 3G mobile broadband network, and the power and reach in the international mobile communications group.
Touch and Feel
The BlackBerry Storm smartphone comes with an innovative touch screen that actually depresses slightly once when the screen is pressed. Typical user feels the screen is pressed and released with a gentle "click", similar to the feeling of a key on the keyboard or the physical buttons on the mouse. The "clickable" touch screen gives the user positive confirmation that they have made a choice and the result is a dramatic increase in touch and a very intuitive interface-type experience.
In addition to the familiar navigation keys ( "phone", "menu" and "self") that is common to other BlackBerry Smartphone, the new BlackBerry Storm adds support for multi-touches, taps, slides and other touch-screen gestures, so customers can easily highlight, scroll, pan and zoom for smooth navigation.
BlackBerry Storm smartphone is also equipped with a built-in accelerometer, which allows the touch screen to automatically switch between landscape mode and portrait mode as the user plays the handset - Rim's SureType ® keyboard layout is available in portrait mode and a full QWERTY * keyboard layout is available in landscape mode. Other relevant features, such as cut and paste, just a touch to the smartphone experience.
