Review: BlackBerry Storm2

2nd-gen BlackBerry iPhone rival tested

The first BlackBerry Storm was at first held up as the savior for carriers without the iPhone, but over time it became clear RIM's entry was short of this goal: an aging OS, no Wi-Fi and a misconceived push-down touchscreen meant it often didn't please either would-be iPhone buyers or BlackBerry veterans. The Storm2 addresses some of these features in a major way, but we'll find out in our review whether it's enough to change people's minds.

    definately better this time around

    this storm is way better than the first one. beter touch screen, better processor, better email. I got one for me and the wife and we couldn't be happier. it gets a lot of flack because it's so big but i'd take this over a samsung and nokia anyday. iphone is still better I think but you have to expect that. I got my last one off of and will probably get another one. very happy with my purchase and I hope the next storm they come out with the touch screen is even better. I give it 7 out of 10 stars.

    It couldn't have anything to do with the fact that Apple has a bigger presence in CA than any other state, could it?
