Description

 The RIM BlackBerry Storm 9500 smartphone is the first BlackBerry to be compatible with the 3G wireless network and is one of the more premium BlackBerry models. Instead of a keypad, the 9500 uses a large 3.25"-diagonal touch screen to navigate. The screen auto-rotates based on position, and uses a full QWERTY layout with SureType to increase accuracy. The 9500 has a 3.2-megapixel digital camera with auto flash, auto focus and video recording. It comes with a built-in GPS receiver and BlackBerry Maps, and automatically geo-tags any photographs taken with their location. It still includes standard BlackBerry features, like wireless email synchronization, instant messaging, HTML browser and document editor. It is meant to compete with other emergent 3G smartphones, like the 3G iPhone.
