As the first touch-screen BlackBerry device, the Storm marked the biggest change from RIM in years. Excitement was palatable when it debuted with Verizon Wireless, but the SurePress technology proved to be clunky and the virtual keyboard was cramped. It was sluggish as well, and call quality was uneven.
CNET review bottom line: The RIM BlackBerry Storm may blow in a frenzy for Verizon Wireless subscribers wanting a touch screen similar to the Apple iPhone's. However, there are bugs and performance issues that prevent the Storm from delivering its full potential.
