BlackBerry Storm2 Announced: Five Ways It's Better - Reviews by PC Magazine: "On Thursday, RIM and Verizon announced the long-rumored BlackBerry Storm2 9550.

RIM didn't just add a new coat of paint and a few software tweaks with the new device. Finally, the innovative touchscreen smartphone just works, and just a few key deficiencies kept it from earning an Editor's Choice award.

This makes the screen more responsive and better for typing.
