And finally, here are some official press shots of the Blackberry Storm. The device looks very pretty but I don’t find myself wanting one, it might be the fact that it can’t sync with all of my media (since it is all in iTunes) and it might be that the user interface isn’t quite up to the iPhone’s standards but whatever the case I’m sure this will make quite a few of you out there very happy.
The unit will have 128MB of RAM, 1GB of built in memory, a 1400mAh battery with 15 days standby and 5.5 hours of talk time (I find those numbers a little hard to believe), Dual-band 800/19–MHz CMA/EV-DO Rev A or Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and 2100MHz HSDPA.
The handset also has a 3.2 Megapixel camera which seems like it is going to be the new standard for high end smartphones. Along with the 1GB of internal memory the Storm will also come with an 8GB microSD card.
NOt a bad spec sheet but like all other phones you really need to reserve judgement until you get your hands on one. I haven’t been able to pin point an exact release date for the phone (since the press release I looked at didn’t specify one, it just says sometime next month) but I might end up being the first one in my local Verizon store just to check one of these out.
