BlackBerry Storm 2 leaks on video, Piezo screen amazes

24 August, 2009
The second reincarnation of the BlackBerry Storm is no longer a secret but there is still enough mystery around it for all of its unofficial appearances to make the headlines. That last video we came upon...

Not sure if the Piezo technology is true. There are some images of Storm 1 and 2 internal hardware ... Storm 1 had a button centered behind the screen and Storm 2 had 4 buttons. This would explain why pressing down would be more responsive, especially when clicking around the edges/corners. I doubt the screen would feel/press like a sponge, but sure that it's a big improvement from the 1st one. Might be a marketing thing, who does this guy work for.

Nonetheless, very interested and happy to see all these phone and software (Google Android) companies trying to come out with the next best thing. Competition is good ... credit to iPhone for shaking things up.

I don't know if you could call this a true touchscreen phone. It's like a touchscreen phone that wants to have buttons, lol. It's technology defeats the purpose of the whole concept of a touchscreen phone. If you want to feel the buttons when you press on your phone, might as well get a phone with the real buttons. And I don't see how this touch technology has an advantage over the iphone as the guy was saying on the video. It would've been better if he just kept the iphone out of it. It gives people the impression that this phone is trying so hard to compete with the iphone.

If the screen still clicks IN ANY WAY that the first Blackberry Storm did, This phone will suck and go down the drain just like the First one did.

I really don't know what to make of if..."is said to feel like you are actually pushing buttons located under the screen"... Ok... So what's the point of having a touchscreen then if it'll feel like buttons... in that case, I'd rather stick to real buttons...

Looks interesting. 5 observations or issues whatever u might call it.

1. Very ugly interface, looks like old LG interface from 2005-2006

2. Bad Camera

3. It's Aluminium, not real metal, which messes with reception

4. The back and the sides are ripped from the Sony Ericsson Aino which was announced in Jan

5. Too thick for phone with a bad camera and the usual specsheet.

Yeah I can picture it: a multitouch spongy-like surface that's firm to touch. Not to mention Wi-fi. RIM didn't go wrong here.
