RIM's first touch-screen BlackBerry finally hits the market. Find out if RIM's Storm lives up to the hype.
Research In Motion has finally been caught in the whirlwind mobile phone fad of the day and conjured up a Storm of its own to combat the headwinds. The Storm is the first BlackBerry to use a touch screen for input. RIM has done some really innovative things with the Storm, but sticks to its roots with the business-friendly underpinnings that anchor the Storm. If you're a business user who needs a BlackBerry for its tight integration with business software and services, but are longing for something a little more nontraditional than the usual BlackBerry QWERTY slab phone, the Storm could be the phone for you.
