All connectivity is available through the blackberry software which will use any communications mendume available, USB, Bluetooth and even ethernet.

The blackberry storm V1 had a lot of issues when it first came out but this was to do with the vodafone software not the phone itself.

The new storm looks a lot better as a whole however i cant help but feel that the vodafone software is going to cause some issues again one it is released in to the market, lets hope this is not the case and that vodafone software can cope with the spec of the new 9550.

Don't bother with the Storm 1 or 2. You can't even bluetooth word files with it and it is suppose to be a business phone blaa

I have the storm but when I fiddle with an iphone I feel as though that touch screen is easier to use for typing. I wonder if they will get rid of the surepress at any point!

Clickscreen is OK, what is not is the lack of front camera, and one at the back so poor they may as well not have bothered here either. Bulky, with little by way of real improvements. OS is hardly chaged so still dull menues. Seems slow and laggy still, but this be improved before release. Other handsets do all this things can manage, and plenty more besides and all better. What is the point of this handset. BB are known to be good with email, but many others now do push email, so the advantage has gone and replaced by...well nothing.

I love the click screen. After the .151 software installation, my Blackberry Storm is the perfect communication tool.

this fone is worse then useless, look at how slow it operates and switches between apps, cant believe blackberry see this as their flagship handset, its a disgrace upon themselves

Ugh! RIM should hire a new phone designer. All of their devices look so outdated for me. And the sure press idea is not that good in real life. A touch screen's haptic feedback will never won again a real "click" in real button.

Boy I sure hope they get rid of that Clicking screen. That's what made the first one Suck. It's like playing a game of "Trouble" just to use your phone. *Click* Now I can move five spaces, Your Turn. Terrible design flaw.
