Verizon released the new edition of BlackBerry Storm on Friday after months of wide speculations.  Numerous long lines of prospective buyers formed outside Verizon Wireless Communications Stores nationwide from California to New York and other states early in the morning waiting to be the first to buy the world's first "clickable" touch screen Blackberry.

Although the long waited Blackberry has become instantly popular among existing subcribers of the communication giant, media said that not many units are actually available on the market.  The company encouraged those who are interested to get online and make their purchase their online stores.  And the product can be shipped in next few days.


The Research In Motion (RIM)'s first touch screen BlackBerry could apparently be a real iphone killer as many people believe.   The new device comes with many new yet slick features, but its uniqueness lies reportedly in how it uses touch, the feature called SurePress. RIM said subscribers need to use the software keyboard just like they use a hardware keyboard and they have to press the screen down in order to make a selection. This design gives users a feeling that no incidents would occur unintentionally.


All the features are listed as follows cited directly from Verizon Storm.


The major features that come with the new version of BlackBerry Storm:


S urePress Touch Screen: Take touch to a whole new level. The hi-resolution 3.25" screen uses groundbreaking touch and click response functionality so you can feel your selections as you make them.

Global Capabilities: Stay connected while you travel.   Use our Global Phone and Global Email services to make calls, access emails and browse the internet in the US or aboard.

Full HTML Browser: Built to browse, the Storm delivers the internet experience, complete with video capacities, right at your fingertips.

Multimedia Capabilities: Shoot and share or just rock out. With The Storm, you can store and play music, as well as take pictures and shoot videos with a front-facing, 3.2 megapixel camera.

Social Tools: With Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones and Flicker Photo Uploader for BlackBerry smartphones, along with Mobile IM, picture and video messaging, the Storm keeps you connected to your social circles:

VZ Navigator Capable: Get on the right path with GPS audible turn-by-turn directions and easy to read maps that go with you while you're on the move, and remain on your display while you're making or taking calls.

Productivity Tools: Life moves fast. Keep up with email, web access, an easy-to-use calendar and the ability view and revise MS Word Excel and PowerPoint files to stay productive anytime anywhere.


Other features with BlackBerry Storm include the following:


Visual Voice Mail: Voicemail is so much easier when you can see it. Visually browse your inbox and listen to messages with just a few clicks.

Battery Life: The BlackBerry Storm’s removable battery is designed to provide the staying power to keep you with your busy days. Enjoy up to 6 hours of talk time and 15 days standby time.

Expandable Memory: The Storm comes pre-loaded with a removable 8GB SanDisk microSD memory card, so you can start storing music photos and more, stat.

Broadband Access Connect: Connect while on the go at fast 3G speeds. Use your Storm as a modem with your laptop to check email, access networks, download large files and more.

Stereo Bluetooth Headset capable: Make calls or listen to music without the wires using the convenience of hands-free function.

Noise Cancellation: Premium phone features including enhanced noise cancellation to offset background noise, a low distortion speakerphone and Bluetooth (.20) support for hands-free use with headset, carkits, stereo headsets and other Bluetooth peripherals.

Voice Notes: Voice notes are another easy and helpful way to help manage your busy schedule. Record and send verbal reminders to yourself and others with this easy to use feature that allows you to record pause and resume your voice notes in the push of a button.

Streaming: Stay in the know even when you're on the go with access to the mobile version of news television and other media sites. The built-in mobile streaming capabilities are designed for you to watch online clips like these or even listen to streamed music broadcasts.

Verizon said in its statement that Storm is made only available in the U.S. from Verizon Wireless.   This Blackberry is sold for "$199.999 after a $50 mail-in rebate debit card and a new two-year customer agreement with a data plan or feature", according to the company.
