BlackBerry Storm

The first touchscreen BlackBerry phone. Introduced in 2008, the Storm was a dual-band phone that supported both CDMA and GSM carriers. The original Storm touchscreen featured SurePress technology, which required an actual depression of screen keys. In late 2009, the Storm2 replaced SurePress with a multitouch screen similar to other smartphones. The Storm2 also had Wi-Fi, which was absent on the first model. By no means did the Storm take the world by storm. Several years later, the BlackBerry Z10 offered a vast improvement in functionality. See BlackBerry 10.
