    Storm 2 gets naked

    (Courtesy of Crackberry)


    Yesterday there was a video posted explaining the Storm 2 Surepress technology. Now we have some pictures of the actual hardware under the screen that make up the Surepress technology. This did not take long since the video was posted yesterday and these images appeared in the Crackberry Forum this morning.

    As the above pictures show, the Storm 2 uses the same technology as the Storm 1. However the Storm 2 has 4 buttons that are larger and evenly distributed instead of 1 centered button, as is the case with the Storm 1. What this means is that the Storm 2 has 4 points of contact. This allows for more accurate navigation and multi-press functioning.

    It is not exactly clear how the Piezo technology works or is included in the Storm 2, if it is included at all. It is obvious the Storm 2 will react much differently then its predecessor. We do know that the glass will be physically hard.

    As the proposed release date for the Storm 2 draws near we will learn more about the new technology that powers the Surepress technology. The next few months will be really exciting leading up to the device release.

    I am right there with you Nate... it seems like this is what a touch screen BB should be!

    The new technology does look amazing. The phones turned off-no clicking of the screen. The phone turns on...and the screen compresses and works as it should. RIM put a lot of effort to improve on Storm 1 and that is just one of the features they have added.

    I didn't really care about S2 at all until maybe a week or two ago. Now I'm actually interested in trying it. Hoping it will actually be easy to use and type on (my biggest complaint with the S1).
