The phone seems to have good weight and equally quantitative in its features. Stylish design with Good form factor but looks bulk than iPhone. The thing i enjoyed with iPhone is its soft touch experience and even in BB Storm 2 i like touch experience that comes with the different technology called "SurePress".
The Device has multiple switches (i mean keys) behind the display and surprisingly it works only when the device is turned on. So Let me introduce this technology, you have to choose the spot on the screen, then we need to make second press on the same spot to get you desired app ON, Like in digital cameras, like how we wait for the camera to make Auto focus for the first press and capture for second press. I really to feared i would break the display, but its just a short press.
4-Keys below screen, Valid shortcuts for front screen, Multi-Touch makes it very comfortable to use. All other features resembles other BlackBerry Devices. The screen resolution 480x360 shows Mobile HD vision to its high capability. Music Play back is very good. Considering memory, On-board memory holds 256MB for Application and 2GB for Data memory and externally can hold upto 16GB and unofficially said that i can hold upto 32GB. This BB Device supports MP4 codec and WMV, I really enjoyed watching movie with this phone. Features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth shows its highest capability.
3.2Mega Pixel camera with its CMOS sensor shows good quality on the picture. But with its Digital Zoom, while in Zoom, it looses its clarity.
A-GPS, with BlackBerry Maps and navigator let me find my destination through shortest destination. BlackBerry Maps handles on navigation to few cities and comes Google Maps to the rescue. I with BB Device simultaneously worked with my Nokia E71 and 5800 Xpress Music. BB Storm 2 and My E71 have comparably good Wi-Fi connectivity than 5800 Xpress Music.
BlackBerry device as its business compatibility covers a wide range frequency that includes GSM, UMTS, CDMA connections. Quad Band GSM with GPRS & EDGE, Single Band UMTS with HSPA and Dual Band CDMA with EV-DO technologies makes this BlackBerry device business operative.
The things that lag in this phone are:
- No Front Camera, So think of Video Call !?
- No Popular app has been released for its compatibility (Fring especially)
- Bulk design
Hope this is all the features i know and came to know about BB Storm 2, Write me comments if needed any assistance in Cracking CrackBerry, sorry BlackBerry.
