New video compares Storm 2 to original; AT&T and Verizon to offer the unit in the U.S.
In a hot new video, the BlackBerry Storm 2 9550 is compared with the original 9530. One interesting item from the video is that it confirms the earlier report that besides the 9550 CDMA model for Verizon, there will be a 9520 GSM model for AT&T in the U.S. As for the phone itself, the 9550 has a screen that is flush with the sides of the device which leads to a better build quality than the first-gen Storm has and also makes the handset look sleeker. As the video shows us, when a letter is pressed on the Storm 9530, the entire screen moves down. With the Piezo technology of the Storm 2 (don't worry if you don't know what that means-this video will explain it all), when you press on a letter it is like pressing on a button under the glass. In other words, the second version of SurePress seems to have achieved the original goal of making a virtual keyboard feel like a real one. It makes typing easier and faster as you can type on more than one letter at a time with the new model just like on a real physical QWERTY keyboard. Bottom line is that it looks like typing on the Storm 2 is a pleasure. Now what will happen to those first-gen Storm owners who will be stuck with obsolete technology?
