The world's first "clickable" touch-screen Smartphone

The Blackberry Strom with multitasking 
Vodafone Essar and Research In Motion (RIM) today announced that the highly anticipated BlackBerry® Storm™ , the first ever touch-screen BlackBerry® smartphone designed for Vodafone, will be available exclusively for Vodafone customers in India from 15th January, 2009. The BlackBerry Storm delivers the renowned functionality of the BlackBerry solution and provides consumers and business customers with entertainment, information and communications at the tip of their fingers.

Priced at Rs 27,990, the innovative smartphone will be available across select Vodafone Stores nationally from January 15, 2009. Vodafone will create more than 150 ‘experience zones’ across the country in Vodafone Stores and Modern Trade Outlets to encourage customers to experience the revolutionary smartphone.

The BlackBerry Storm smartphone combines the powerful communication features, global connectivity and personal productivity advantages of the BlackBerry platform with a revolutionary touch-screen technology
that dramatically enhances the touch interface and enables easy and precise typing. The world's first “clickable” touch-screen responds much like a physical keyboard and also supports single-touch, multi-touch and gestures for intuitive and efficient application navigation. The innovative SurePress™ touch-screen depresses ever so slightly to aid in typing and navigation and to give users an experience they can actually feel. It also features a built-in accelerometer, which automatically switches the display for use in landscape and portrait as the user rotates the handset.

Whether shopping for a gift online, editing important documents or reading a map, the BlackBerry Storm smartphone brings images to life with stunning clarity through its 3.25-inch, high resolution (480x360-pixels at 184 ppi), colour display.

With a variety of powerful applications that were custom-built for the BlackBerry platform, the BlackBerry Storm from Vodafone enables the user to simply and easily keep web community pages current, continue instant message chats or even add pictures directly to Flickr™. These applications include:

    * Facebook® for BlackBerry® smartphones
    * Windows Live™ Messenger for BlackBerry smartphones
    * Google Talk™ for BlackBerry smartphones
    * Yahoo® Messenger for BlackBerry smartphones
    * Flickr Photo Uploader for BlackBerry smartphones
