"click" touch screen, Apple, BlackBerry Storm, iPhone, iPhone killer, RIM, touch screen, Verizon Wireless
So RIM has announced the coming arrival of the BlackBerry Storm exclusively from Verizon. Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock you should know that it’s supposed to be the next iPhone killer. A touch screen BlackBerry with no thumb wheel and no trackball.
This is great news to challenge the juggernaut that is Apple. Don’t get me wrong, I love the iPhone, it’s a great device. But I think what cellular companies are doing to lock you into a contract just to own one is ridiculous. I’m hoping a little friendly competition from RIM will make these companies loosen their hold on consumers.
The new BlackBerry Storm is touch screen like I said before, and also has a 3.2 MP camera, removable memory, removable battery, and picture messaging. It also has a “click” touch screen so you can feel when you touch the screen. This type of tactile feedback should make it much easier to use than traditional touch screens.
