Yesterday, U.S. wireless carrier Verizon Wireless formally announced Research In Motion’s (RIM) latest touch-screen smartphone: the BlackBerry Storm2 9550. The device is not yet publicly available–you’ll have to wait until later this week to get your Storm2–but the BlackBerry-maker sent us a review device early.
There are currently two versions of the BlackBerry Storm2: the 9520, which is meant for GSM networks overseas; and the Storm 9550, Verizon’s version, with U.S. CDMA and GSM. Along with the Storm2 9550 RIM sent my way, I also received a list of new features and refinements within the device.
You can expect a full Storm2 9550 review on CIO.com in the near future, but we never evaluate devices without spending adequate time using them. So for now, slake your BlackBerry Storm2 craving with this list of new features and enhancements, directly from RIM itself.
BlackBerry Storm2 refinements:
-Enhanced SurePress Technology (SurePress is all electronic in Storm2 – there are no mechanical moving parts)
-Overall device performance (i.e. rotation speed, etc&) is enhanced
