Product Review: BlackBerry Storm is one sweet touch-screen phone

BlackberrystormfrontviewWhen it comes to touch-screen phones, the one thing that always gets to me is typing on it. It's just not the same as real buttons.

But the BlackBerry Storm comes pretty darn close to the real thing. You have to "click" the screen -- yes, actually press down on the screen, and it clicks like pressing a button -- to make a selection. With the Storm, it took me less than a day and I was typing faster and more accurate than when I typed on other touch-screen phones.

But it wasn't perfect. Once in a while it got a little quirky. A couple times it wouldn't respond to my screen "clicks" or it was a little too slow to respond. But it didn't stop me from loving this phone. Read the full review on MiamiHerald.com or watch the video below:

Yeah, touch screen phones can be hit-or-miss for people who are more used to the feel of buttons. The Storm can be pretty convenient in that regard, though it still takes a bit of getting used to. Once you get past that learning curve, though, it's smooth sailing.
