The BlackBerry Storm is the first touch-screen BlackBerry device and one of the first that has a display with real feedback. When touched, the screen depresses slightly. Matthew Miller has more details.
Other specs for the BlackBerry Storm include support for Verizon’s 3G network, 3.2 megapixel camera, integrated GPS receiver, integrated Documents To Go software for full Office document functionality, 1GB of onboard memory with a microSD slot, 3.5mm headset jack, Bluetooth radio with A2DP support, 480×360 display, and 1400 mAh removable rechargeable battery.
Like the iPhone, the Storm has an integrated accelerometer so you can switch from portrait to landscape with either the SureType (portrait) or full QWERTY (landscape) keyboard appearing.
The BlackBerry Storm will be available later this fall for an undisclosed price.
