The Storm 2: touch-sensitive buttons are new

The Storm 2 takes many visual cues from the original model, but we did notice several changes from the first-generation model.

Is it slightly thinner?

For example, the place/end call and menu buttons from the Storm have been swapped out for touch-sensitive keys built into the Storm 2’s display glass.

Storm 2 also looks a little thinner than the original, but RIM’s decided not to change the camera quality, keeping it at 3.2Mp.

RIM's yet to say when Storm 2 will hit shops

Sadly, we still don’t know if the Storm 2 will support Wi-Fi as its predecessor so notably failed to do. ®
