Official walkthrough of the Blackberry Storm UI - on video

16 Oct, 2008

A week after the official announcement of the full touch Blackberry Storm, Vodafone now release a cool video demoing the new Blackberry interface. It looks flashy alright (and comfortable to use) with the added benefit of a virtual landscape QWERTY keyboard with tactile feedback.

The Blackberry Storm is the first touchscreen device by BlackBerry. It's got a spanking new user interface, which looks fluid enough to compete the Apple iPhone with an ease.

The interface makes full use of the auto-rotating screen, while the web browser seems similar to the Safari browser usability level. Explaining all the details is tedious enough, so you better check out the video for the rest of the stuff.

P.S. We couldn't help but notice that UI auto rotation is somewhat slow. We hope they fix it in the retail product.
