BlackBerry Storm review

N owadays, mobile telephony is more than just communication. Not only should it meet customers’ needs, it should also be fun. Look around you in a train or at the airport. People seem to be more self-centered and appreciate a little distraction at any time. This fast society would not be complete without music, movies, full internet access and a digital camera. A fast society requires fast solutions. Everybody is available by phone, SMS text messages or email at all times. Whether the Blackberry Storm, Vodafone and Research in Motion's new flagship lives up to these expectations, can be read in the following LetsGoMobile review.

BlackBerry smartphones for the business user

Blackberry has been a famous and popular name in the corporate market for years now. When the first Blackberry was introduced, the smartphone brand made a major breakthrough with the QWERTY keyboard and the perfect synchronization of agenda and email with the PC. Since then, Vodafone and Research in Motion continuously strived to maintain this image and strengthen it, resulting in the Blackberry Storm 9500 smartphone. Is the Blackberry Storm cell phone able to keep pace with its predecessor's image?

First impression of the BlackBerry Storm

A simple white box contains all the items you need: a stereo headset, battery charger, USB cable, software and naturally the Blackberry Storm mobile phone. The software in this package comes on a 512 USB stick, which is a new way of providing software. It is certainly very easy and handy to use. You can even use it as a backup once the software is installed. Sadly enough, it lacks an external memory card. The BlackBerry handset has a standard flash memory of 128MB and an internal memory of 1GB. It's still wise to purchase extra memory since photos, videos and music files take up considerable space.
