New Blackberry - Blackberry Storm
Touch Screen PDA Cell Phones
It seem that it is the world of touch screen. I mean there are already so many touch screen computers and gadgets available from cell phones to even computers, that it just seems everyone wants a touch screen.
Well, Blackberry just couldn't avoid it. The now have the Blackberry Storm, which I believe will be released with Verizon to start.
Now, I will admit touch screen gadgets are really cool, but I like my plain old Blackberry Curve just like it is. I couldn't imagine a touch screen Blackberry, but they've got it working.
Below, you'll find the basic specs for the Blackberry Storm, and even a few accessories that are already out. Although, basic a case and protector screen is essential for any cell phone, much less for a touch screen cell phone.

Blackberry Storm Commercial
The Blackberry Storm is supposed to have a similar feel to that of a regular, physical keyboard or mouse with a gently click touch. It's supposed to be simple to navigate.
It even compares with the iPhone with its built in accelerometer that automatically orients the screen between landscape and portrait mode when you rotate the handset, which makes it more of a threat to the iPhone sales.
Once released to the Verizon customers, the Blackberry Storm will greatly enhance the competition between the iPhone and other touch screen PDA cell phones, as Blackberry is already one of the best cell phone brands on the market. And now that it comes in touch screen, the Blackberry Storm will definitely make its sales and its name more highly known amongst the public.
I just hope that one day, it will spread from Verizon to the other cell phone companies, which given time it should with ease.
