New Blackberry Storm

20 11 2008

BlackBerry fans can rejoice: the Storm, Research In Motion’s first all-touchscreen Blackberry will make even iPhone users salivate just a little bit over some of the features of this very slick and sophisticated smartphone.

Is it an iPhone killer? Depends on whether you lose sleep at night thinking about such things. Folks at RIM and Apple do, of course, and there might be some in Cupertino counting sheep with the release Friday of the BlackBerry Storm 9530, as it’s officially called.

Apple and RIM are in a heated battle to have their phones appeal to opposite ends of their markets. BlackBerrys are a staple in the business world, and Apple wants the iPhone to capture a good chunk of the briefcase set. With the Storm, RIM is obviously reaching deep into the iPhone’s lifestyle territory, not only matching the iPhone in some areas, but exceeding it as well.
