BlackBerry Storm2 features a 3.25-inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 360 x 480 pixels. Storm2, like its predecessor, doesn’t have a physical keyboard. Instead, it simulates the click of buttons with an electrical pulse when users touch the screen. Almost identical to its predecessor, the phone has gone a bit slimmer and trimmer than the older version.

Faster browser

BlackBerry's latest smartphone features a much faster web browser than the previous Storm which was introduced last year.

The smartphone retains the original Storm's clickable touchscreen interface, but improves upon it with faster typing and "multitouch" capabilities, which allow users to type on more than just one part of the screen at a time.

BlackBerry Storm2 brings a new SurePress technology based on an electronic suspension system that provides the user with tactile feedback when the touchscreen is pressed. Its new electronic system responds even to gentle pressure applied anywhere on the surface of the screen and makes clicking the display almost effortless.

Its new technology will also allow the user to type a letter with one thumb even while the other thumb may still be touching or resting on another letter, enabling faster typing.
