RIM's BlackBerry Storm2 is the second touchscreen BlackBerry smartphone to launch in Australia.
RIM's second touch screen BlackBerry smartphone, the BlackBerry Storm2, will land down under this week on the Vodafone and 3 networks.
A replacement for the ill-received original BlackBerry Storm 9500, the BlackBerry Storm2 boasts improved software, an upgraded display and an improved user experience.
The BlackBerry Storm2 smartphone is HSDPA-capable and includes built-in GPS. It also comes with Wi-Fi, which was a puzzling omission on the original Storm, and Bluetooth connectivity.
Other features include a 3.5mm headphone jack, a microSD card slot for extra storage and a 3.2-megapixel camera with flash. The Storm2 runs the latest version of the BlackBerry operating system, 5.0.
The BlackBerry Storm2 will be available on Vodafone and 3's new $69 cap, one of the many new caps unveiled yesterday by VHA. Vodafone's cap includes unlimited Vodafone-to-Vodafone calls, $450 worth of calls and messages and 500MB of data and unlimited BlackBerry Email and Internet. 3's $69 cap offers unlimited 3-to-3 calls, $450 worth of calls and text, 100MB of data and unlimited BlackBerry e-mail and Internet.
