Salomondrin has done it again with another great overview video, this time goingt over the Verizon BlackBerry Storm 2 9550. The Storm 2 in this video is a newer release, which includes the hardware and the software (OS 220.127.116.117).
The Hardware: The phone is great to look at, and specially with RIM fixing the previous battery door problems that older revisions had, the phone is ready for every day use. The screen’s response is perfect at all times (Even though this is OS dependent), and there is no more light leaking around the screen
The Software: The latest update I did to the phone made the phone a solid device. This is exactly what RIM had in mind when they decided to put out the phone. We are back to the screen becoming solid when its off, but now the buttons on the bottom of the phone (send, end, app, return) are able to bring the screen back to live as well. I don’t know how that is possible since those buttons are integrated on the screen, but I’m loving it. Random reboots are a thing of the past. In fact, they got rid of those with builds over .19X. There is no random freezing on the screen anymore either, and every single click works this time. The OS also makes the phone very snappy (responds really fast) whether you are going in or out of a menu, making a call, or even texting, the lag is completely gone here. With this bad boy you can text as fast as you want, and not as fast as the phone allows you to, like with the first version of the Storm.
I definitely agree with Sal, the Storm 2 looks and sounds ready for an official launch. As of right now we’re looking at a launch sometime between October 25th and November 27th if things work out internally and nothing gets pushed back. For more about this device check out the Storm 2 Archives.
