BlackBerry Storm2 9520 is here, the unboxing video too

We are getting BlackBerry handsets in numbers around the office lately.

We got our feet wet with the Bold 9700 review last week (a nice phone indeed) and we’re continued with the Curve 8520 (not as impressive, review expected soon).

So it’s time for the last man standing – the latest BlackBerry Storm2 and its revolutionary piezzo-electric touchscreen. Now that we already have it in the office, we can share our first impressions with you. There is also a quick unboxing video for you after the break.

A nice change is that the clickable Piezzo-electric touchscreen of the BlackBerry Storm2 9520 requires less effort for a click than the giant button screen of its predecessor. Unfortunately, it’s still more tiring to your fingers more than a regular touchscreen handset. The effort feels just right for typing but it’s a bit too much for common navigation or at least so are our first impressions. We wonder if the Storm3 will have selectively clickable screen – for instance, it can work only when you input text. But I digress.

Here comes the BlackBerry Storm2 9520 unboxing video for you to enjoy:
