Chris Brown and BlackBerry Strom combination style


Steve Jobs and Apple iPhone was in the planning stages, the first air carrier they brought the device to the largest network of the United States was, Verizon. Even if you haven't heard, how the story ends--Verizon refused and jobs took his 3.93 dollar ball to AT&T--you probably result. The IPhone has risen to become the ultimate smartphone, the essential accessories, all from celebrities to your mother want--nay,--has in their pocket. It has changed the landscape in modern daily, put a serious dent in sales of competing devices (recently overtake the venerable RAZR as best-selling domestic handset) and undoubtedly raised the bar when it comes to expectations for features in the new handset.It may seem unfair to open examination of the EXTERIOR of the latest BlackBerry-Storm--with a history lesson on the iPhone, but if you understand the market, which Verizon and RIM hopes to conquer, you understand the storm, and it helps put this criticism in perspective. Storm, a widescreen display, touchscreen device can boast of many of the same features as the iPhone, but adds innovations like a Clickable screen and comes packed with RANDS legendary e-mail and messaging services. Mainlined in the largest (and some say best) network in the States, the storm is an almost deafening blast competition at first glance, but makes it keep on closer examination? Read on to find out.

The storm is a striking unit. From the second you lay eyes on it, it is clear that a lot of time and care went into when designing this phone. Most of the front panel is a large screen, 3.25-inch (480 x 360) touchscreen is sitting just shy of flush with a silver bezel, running around the sides, top and bottom of the device. Bands seem to be plastic, not metal and trace the outline of moderately thick (0.55-inches) phone, looping around the back, while the rest of the surface is a high-gloss piano black plastic. Under the screen is four familiar BlackBerry keys (phone, menu, back, and end/power), along the left is a convenience key and a micro USB port (rand has munkes the more common mini-USB slot for the lower profile later variation, although there seems to be the way in which the industry is headed), and on the right side is another convenience key, volume rocker and (yay!), 3.5 mm jack for headphones. Around the back battery cover is made from solid piece of aluminium brushed, camera and flash are sitting on the top plate, is the subject of a glossy plastic strip.

Unlike similar stacked competitors (the iPhone and the instinct comes to mind) the storm not only boast a capacitive touch screen, it also exploits a completely unique "click" technology known as SurePress, which, in fact, you can click on the screen down like a mouse button. The purpose of this technology is apparently, giving two aspects to touch screens, which is currently missing in most units: the ability to "hover" without selecting or moving an on-screen keyboard element and the physical sensation of "click" when you type or navigate.

BlackBerrys has won an almost mythic stature as the phone for e-mail and messaging. One of the components in RANDS success for this model has been the inclusion of QWERTY keypads (and more recently halved SureType QWERTY keyboards) on their phones. As any email addict will tell, very few devices can compete. Slant from RANDS PER on the Storm is that the new Clickable touchscreen delivers another high caliber typist's dream to their roster--but it could not be further from the truth. Rather than to make things easier Then it actually makes them more difficult. When you press down to play a "key", is required to release before you move to another, which means that you can only write so quickly. In our tests, we were constantly frustrated with the amazing, laggy motion, when you try to write with any speed. You must leave Then pressed, before you can turn on a different character, and it makes for a stuttery input process.

Otherwise, there are a few large implementations of the screen--copy and paste, as is the norm on RIM phones, are fully represented here with elegant multitouch functionality. You Grab just the beginning and end of a paragraph in the text that you want to win with two fingers and a menu pop up along the bottom copy/paste tasks. In the browser, you can place the mouse pointer over a link with your finger before you click it (a great help on crowded pages), and you can double tap (don't click) to zoom in on the pages, but there is no way back than frames minus magnifying glass. We do not believe the technology is used for the screen is a blind alley by any measure, but it has a long way to go before it honestly compete with the iPhone virtual keyboard to dominance.

Messaging and email in front, very little has changed here from the former rim phones, Save for some of that Visual flair. Especially when it comes to email, seems to use of screen real estate and the selection of fonts dated compared to the iPhone. We will not complain about itself, e-mail service delivery of messages was rock solid (of course), but a quick glance at the iPhone versus a quick glance at the storm offers a strong juxtaposition of design language. Reading e-mail on the BlackBerry was a disjointed experience, and highlighted the feeling that not too many problems had been taken to update the up this interface and format it to the screen image larger. Under the hood, we found account management simple enough, but those looking for solid Gmail integration (like, say, all the people of Verizon and RIM hopes to lure away from Apple's camp) will be seriously Let down. There does not seem to be any decent alternative to Gmail the way you are accustomed to, save Google's own app (which is remarkably good Save for a couple of questions).

One of the good things about the storm is that it can not only make still photos, but can shoot video, as well as. The results are mediocre, allows capture up to 320 x 240, with a little heavy paper printouts. Still, knowing that you can extract this to Grab something reminds us--once again--that this is a necessary basic for modern living.

It is clear from the device itself and the massive pr pressure and that both the rim and Verizon gives the storm, they see this as a serious threat to the iPhone's dominance in the smartphone market. In the last few weeks we have been bombarded with advertisements, leaks, press releases and special events all celebrates the arrival of the Storm, both here and abroad. So it seems pretty obvious, Yes, think companies, they have a real contender on their hands--and in many ways they are doing. Selling points is easy: your phone is beautiful to look at and hold, it has developed and supported by rim (now almost a household name thanks to their prevalence in the markets for business and entertainment), and it is packed with features that at first glance makes it seem not only as good as the iPhone, but better You can download BlackBerry Storm manual user guide click here
