    Wink Storm 2 Chasers will want to stay tuned...

    It's been kept quite for a while but, now it's finally out.

    Here's the link:

    Also, check out these articles from TBZ:

    The S2's Technology


    Here's something that was posted on CB I thought I would share w/ you.

    Surreal's Statement:

    "Storm1 uses technology where there is one physical button, you press the entire screen down onto the button which in turn produces a 'click'."

    "The difference between the Storm1 and the Storm2 is that there is no physical button on the Storm2. You do not physically click, even though it might feel like you are. The click is done by the 'new technology', the user simply touches the screen and by the amount of force and type of action that is being selected the screen clicks on its own. This drastically improves. the 'clicking speed', and in turn typing speed. This is the main difference in my opinion. Also, this introduces the concept of multi-touch points, being able to 'click' multiple keys at once."

    "We won't know anything until this thing hits the market. Of course this is speculation."

    For those that may not know, Kevin just posted a very thorough write up in the CB Storm 2 forum on the piezo technology.

    Now if this one is true, I'm taking my son's upgrade and getting me a S2...
    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Yes I just made a major purchase in the diaper category as I am sure the good news on the Storm 2 will continue to surface.

    I just read another hands-on by a member of CB, rez32 (I believe that is the member's name) and he got about 10 minutes of hands on time with Storm 2 and his comments were very similar to what Touchpro stated in the OP.

    Essentially he stated that typing on Storm 2 is almost freaky good. He was able to type something along the lines of 3X faster than what he could on Storm 1.

    Rez32 also confirmed FLICK SCROLLING WAS INCLUDED and application memory was something like 119mb. One thing that has been pretty much confirmed is that Storm 2 will have no shortage of memory.
