Finally, after all those leaks the BlackBerry Storm 2 is official. This second version of BlackBerry touch phone has piles of technology by its name - starting with the amazing piezo touchscreen, right to almost every nuke and cranny of the 802.11 specification (something sorely missed in the original).
The Storm2 is available in two versions, both of them having quad-band GSM radios. The North American version (BlackBerry Storm2 9550) also sports CDMA as well as EV-DO Rev A. BlackBerry Storm2 9520 on the other hand comes single-band 3G with HSPA (2100MHz).
The centerpiece of the BlackBerry Storm2 is of course the SurePress touchscreen. No, it's not the old one, which everyone loved to hate (though it won an award). It's a brand new one, complete with piezoelectric gadgetry, which makes the screen clickable only when the device is on.
Here are the other important features of the BlackBerry Storm2: the screen is 3.25" big with HVGA resolution using capacitive technology, while the autofocus camera has 3.2 megapixel resolution. The list goes on with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, built-in GPS receiver and a 1400 mAh Li-Ion battery.
The BlackBerry Storm2 will be available to Vodafone customers in seven European countries and South Africa before the end of the month. A 2-year 35 GBP/month contract will get you the handset for free.
