New video of BlackBerry Storm 2 9550; SurePress "easier to use"!

Again, we see that the SurePress clicking keyboard comes to a stop when the power is off. The reviewer says the 9550 is fast, even while running the dated OS on his device. So pop the corn, invite a date, sit back and watch a great flick for BlackBerry fans and Storm fans in particular.

So after watching this; part of me wants to get the phone, and another part of me says to smash my current Storm against a wall and get something with real keys... decisions, decisions...

Did you see the video?...... The Storm2 he was using had ATT service and Verizon on the wallpaper.... So I guess the Storm2 is going to be on other carriers other than Verzion.

The reason for using AT&T was because he cannot activate it on Verizon yet as the phone has not yet been released. Yes it is a possibility for some time in the future for it to be available in AT&T it won't happen anytime soon. The phone is a global phone so it will work on other GSM networks, but it will not have 3G here in the US until it gets North American GSM/3G banding. The phone would also have to be cracked or given an unlock code from Verizon when it comes out, or through an "Unlocking" website for CDMA Global Phones.

I honestly do not know why people like any form of the Storm. It's huge, ugly, has a crappy looking OS (no eye candy,) laggy OS, and there's almost zero animations. Plus the touch screen sucks...

I somewhat agree with you. They want it because it is a blackberry and it has a touchscreen. I think people buy into the hype of RIm devices... But I do not like any of the recent blackberry phones as they started being produced in China and Mexico, and not in Canada anymore... Come on RIM you have Canada's one and only claim to fame (leaving hockey out of the equation), don't ruin what little reputation your country has left! MAKE GOOD DEVICES AGAIN!

I really don't like this phone. I am not a fan of the OS, not to mention the stupid SurePress which defeats the whole purpose of a touch screen phone. Why couldn't they have just made an awesome touch device and really worked on the OS for the second go around. They failed once again.
