Review of the Blackberry Storm 2

Review of the Blackberry Storm 2
People are finally getting their hands on the much-talked about, highly anticipated Blackberry Storm 2 and the reviews are flooding in. As a matter of fact, people were talking about it before the original storm was even released to customers. So, does it stand up to the hype? Let's take a look.

According to, the Storm 2 is definitely an improvement over the first model, with lots of additions and an overall better performance, but it doesn't make the first one obsolete. In other words, if you're already a Storm owner, and you don't have any major issues with your phone, you are probably better off sticking to what you know. On the other hand, the addition of Wi-Fi could make or break your decision.

But Wi-Fi isn't the only improvement over the original model. There are also any number of other improvements worth mentioning, including: enhanced SurePress Technology, overall device performance, JavaScript is now on by default, 256 MB of Memory (compared to 128 MB), 2GB of onboard media memory (compared to 1GB), a sleeker design with tinted chrome ring, integrated touch navigation keys, Blackberry Handheld Software version 5.0, and internet browsing enhancements such as fast page loading.
