RIM introduces Next Gen BlackBerry Touch-Screen Smartphone with features like new SurePress Technology and built-in Wi-Fi and Other Enhancements

Research In Motion announced the launch of the highly anticipated BlackBerry® Storm2TM smartphone with BlackBerry® OS 5 in India today.
The second generation of RIM's innovative and award-winning touch-screen smartphone, the BlackBerry Storm2 is a significant improvement on the BlackBerry touch-screen platform with enhanced technology and new features that allow customers to stay connected to people, places and things that matter most.

“Powered with the latest SurePress technology and BlackBerry OS 5,  the new BlackBerry Storm2 offers customers a powerful and unique mix of advanced communications and multimedia features in a smoothly designed smartphone that will appeal to both consumers and business professionals,” said Frenny Bawa, Managing Director, India, Research In Motion.

New SurePress Technology
The BlackBerry Storm2 smartphone introduces a new SurePress™ technology based on an electronic system that provides the user with tactile feedback when the touch-screen is pressed. The new system responds equally to gentle pressure applied anywhere on the surface of the screen and makes clicking the display practically effortless. Typing on the smartphone's virtual keyboards is easier, more comfortable and more accurate. The new SurePress technology also allows the user to type a letter with one thumb even while their other thumb may still be touching or resting on another letter, enabling faster typing and multi-key actions such as Shift or Alt -key combinations.

This baby is priced at Rs.31,990/- all India.
