New Storm2 9550 video shows off improvements
Some of the features on the 9550 are flick scrolling, the new BlackBerry Messenger 5.0, threaded texting, and the improvement in SurePress allows for multi-touch typing. Instead of typing as fast as the phone will allow you to, with the Storm2, you will be able to type as fast as your abiltity to because of the keyboard's four sensors which allows you to press on more than one letter at a time. Yes, the browser still isn't up to the rarefied air of mobile Safari or the Android browser, even with flick scrolling added. But we know that RIM has promised that their browser will soon catch up to the top ones in the market. RIM has also agreed to partner with Adobe to bring flash support to the 'Berry, which is something that all BlackBerry users can be happy about.
Whether it is October 21st, as we earlier reported today, or a later date, the launch of the BlackBerry Storm2 9550 for Verizon certainly promises to be a major improvement for everyone concerned. Pricing is still an unknown and first-gen owners are still hoping that they are given some kind of compensation for their difficulties.
