Today, RIM officially acknowledged the BlackBerry Storm2 and announced its forthcoming availability with Vodafone in seven European markets. The Storm2 runs BlackBerrry OS version 5.0, and has completely re-worked the SurePress technology used to interact with the phone. Rather than provide physical feedback via the clicking screen, the Storm2 now uses haptic feedback on its capacitive display to let users know that they've pressed buttons on the screen. The new SurePress software also allows for users to press a key while accidentally touching another. On-board storage has been upped from 1GB to 2GB, and it supports microSD cards up to 32GB. As with the original, it supports quad-band GSM/EDGE and 2100MHz HSDPA. The Vodafone press release makes no mention of CDMA network support, but the original Storm had both CDMA and GSM radios on board and was also sold by Vodafone and Verizon Wireless in the U.S. The Storm2 also has Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, flash and video capture and Wi-Fi. The Wall Street Journal's Walter Mossberg recently reviewed the Verizon variant of the Storm2, and reports that it will be available in November for about $200.
