There’s been a lot of commotion regarding the BlackBerry Storm recently, as various unboxing experiences started surfacing online, while T3 posted the video below showing their hands-on experience with the device. They’re quite pleased with the handset and we must mention that there’s a reference to the availability date in the clip, November 14th:
Vodafone’s website claims otherwise, stating that November 18th is the launch date, but that’s not as important as the hands-on experience we’re about to check out. We can see the phone’s interface in action, the way you type messages and a bit of copy/paste that the iPhone would surely want to have. Also, the virtual QWERTY keypad seems decent to say the least and we finally get to see the BlackBerry Application Center for a few seconds.
Storm handles multimedia and browsing pretty well, although the latter can be done without all the zooming, pinching and multi-touching that the iPhone supports. Now, let’s see a full review of that device!
