BlackBerry Storm2 9520 review
Does the second generation Storm help us forget any hard feelings about BlackBerry's first touchscreen foray? We review the Storm2 9520 to find out.
App World also finds a home on the device, as you'd expect, offering up a world of opportunity for business users to access even more tools not already included out-of-the-box.
It would seem that the Storm2 has got it sussed when it comes to serving up the features and functionality demanded by business users. That said, it can also hold its own in terms of multimedia functionality.
A 3.5mm headphone jack is flushed within the casing, the speaker offers great audio quality and video is in its prime on the large screen, whether viewing from YouTube or elsewhere. There are also bundled games like Brickbreaker and Word Mole to amuse you.
The 3.2 megapixel camera is not award-winning but it does the job nonetheless and serves up average to good images as a result.
We always hope that future generations of phones build on the solid, or rocky, foundations created by their predecessors, but that's not always the case.
Thankfully, RIM has done business users proud with the Storm2 and we're happy to recommend it. The only trade off being, at present, much like its older sibling, the Storm2 is a Vodafone-only exclusive.

The see-saw like depressing screen has gone in favour of a much better and more responsive way of entering text and commands. And, it’s this and such other enhanced usability features that are likely to make the Storm2 a firm favourite among business users. We liked the first-generation Storm as we thought it was innovative, but it wasn’t without kinks and we’re glad that these have been ironed out in the second generation.
