BlackBerry Storm2 coming to Vodafone and 3 this Thursday

RIM's second touch-screen smartphone will launch on VHA this week

RIM's BlackBerry Storm2 is the second touchscreen BlackBerry smartphone to launch in Australia.

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.

RIM will be taking us through the Storm2 today, but in the meantime you can check out our full review of the BlackBerry Storm2 smartphone.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
