Blackberry Storm2 Hitting Shelves Soon
February 26, 2010

As the smartphone war heats up, RIM brings to the table the second version of its touch-screen Blackberry, the Storm. This time around, do you think they will take a bigger share from Apple and its iPhone?

The original Storm wasn't as successful as RIM had hoped. The main problems were the strange typing issue where the screen moved with each tap, no Wi-Fi, and a cramped vertical virtual keyboard.

Walt Mosberg's post on the Wall Street Journal says the Storm2 fixes all those flaws. The screen now stays still when tapped, providing tactile feedback electronically instead of mechanically. This allows for faster, smoother typing. The new model also has Wi-Fi. And you can now use a full, albeit squeezed, virtual keyboard in vertical mode.

Will you go out and buy the new Storm2? Let us know! It is rumored to be out in Nov. on Verizon.
