BlackBerry Storm Picture Gallery

After dodging dirty looks from Verizon reps at the BlackBerry Developer Conference, I finally managed to get some time with the upcoming BlackBerry Storm. This here is actually the Vodafone version, which, although had less of a presence here at the show in California, will have a much more widespread launch through European channels and abroad.

I did a lot of size comparing with my BlackBerry Bold, and the Storm seems a notch smaller on all sides, but not by much. Check the SizeEasy to get a more precise idea. The Storm of course has the microUSB slot first introduced to the BlackBerry Pearl Flip, which I also got to fool around for with a bit for the first time (not bad, little different, not a lot of horsepower). That new USB slot saves a lot of space on the thickness front. As mentioned, the OS is still fairly beta, but I managed to see a few more recent versions, and it’s clear that RIM is working hard on the bumps and will have something good and stable in time for the rumored November release.

Official specs, for the curious…
