Vodafone BlackBerry Storm 9500 review

 

Unlike some phones, which launch initially on one mobile phone network but are later rolled out and offered by several, the BlackBerry Storm 9500 is completely tied in to these two carriers. You can buy the Storm through Phones4U in the UK, but the...

While the BlackBerry Storm 9500 is by no means the perfect smartphone, there are many aspects of it we admire. The clickable touchscreen works very well – we liked the fact you need to apply definite pressure to initiate a command or enter a character....

RIM BlackBerry Storm 9500 review

 

One of the Storm's saving graces is its battery life, which is far better than those of other touch-screen models we've seen. The innovative touch-and-click interface has potential, but it needs improving. Long-term BlackBerry users may have the...

Overall, a very stylish phone, with a friendly interface. Touch screen may take some time to get used to.

BlackBerry Storm 9500 vs BlackBerry Storm 9520

 

It's a clash of the touchscreen BlackBerry titans as we see how the original Storm (9500) stacks up against the newly released Storm2 (9520).

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the second generation Storm (Storm2/9520) wins out on this particular competition. The first generation Storm was a great innovation and brought happiness to many consumers and business users alike, but this later version takes...

LG Cookie (LG KP500) Review

 

The LG Cookie (LG KP500) has been a strange handset to review. Reading through my review again I seem to have been really negative about most aspects of this phone! I feel that cutting the price here has compromised the quality of the features. But...
