BlackBerry Storm2 to hit UK this month

Vodafone offering handset for free on £35 per month contract

Vodafone has revealed it will be offering RIM's latest smartphone, the BlackBerry Storm2, in the UK from the end of October.

The smartphone, which is an update on last year's BlackBerry Storm, features a 3.25in 360x480 touchscreen with BlackBerry's new SurePress technology, which provides tactile feedback when the touchscreen is pressed.

Users will also benefit from Wi-Fi connectivity, a function that was not available on the previous version, as well as built-in GPS, 3G and Bluetooth connectivity.

The BlackBerry Storm2 has a 2GB internal memory that can expanded with a micro-DS card up to 32GB and also comes with a 3.2Mp camera with zoom, flash and video capture capabilities.

Vodafone said the BlackBerry Storm2 will be available free to users that take out a 24 month contract with 600 minutes of talk-time, unlimited texts and unlimited access to the web, at a cost of £35 per month.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
