BlackBerry Storm photos

Screenshots and photos of Verizon's new BlackBerry Storm have been posted, offering users a glimpse of the full touchscreen RIM handset. As seen on StormReviews, the Storm offers a very similar interface to the BlackBerry Bold, albeit with a touchscreen-based keyboard, previously revealed to operate using a combination of touch and pressure levels. When used vertically, the keys join together, similar to how other smartphone keyboards are presented.

The orientation sensor also functions with the digital and analogue clocks, spreadsheets, and seemingly every application presented.

A simple black interface populates the various applications, with blue highlights appearing on selected buttons.

Verizon recently distributed Storm documentation that promotes the RIM device over Apple's iPhone, while AT&T followed a week later with anti-Storm/pro-iPhone materials.
