BlackBerry Storm 2 SurePress toggle feature revealed

24 Comments

A new video by Salomondrin shows the BlackBerry Storm 2 with the ability to toggle the clicking sound for SurePress. This is a great feature considering many users want complete silence from their device.

Here is a theory, and this could be going way out on a limb, but I’m going to call Verizon PR on this one. All other BlackBerry Storm 2 videos have been pulled. This means Salomondrin is either saying all the right things to allow his videos to avoid the RIM legal machine, or he has some inside privilege.

Also, this isn’t the first time Verizon has controlled their leaks. Remember last year with the original BlackBerry Storm? Well perhaps they’re doing it all over again. Here are some examples from last year:

BlackBerry Storm 9530 Talking Points Slip
BlackBerry Storm 9530 Appears on Verizon’s Site

Just search ‘Verizon leak’ on BlackBerry Cool and you can see the plethora of “leaks” that came out before the Storm launch.

Although, an easy way to prove me wrong would be to find a few videos of the Storm 2 from other YouTube users that have negative criticism and haven’t been pulled.

In any case, the device looks great and it doesn’t really matter if it’s Verizon or not. The fact is that we get to see the device early.

    I guess the other way to prove you wrong was to take down favorable videos like this one.

    Hahah..nice.

    There’s still some from other YouTube users who have reposted the videos:

    Wonder how long or if those will be taken down.

    I would love to know what use terms these videos violate? RIM or YouTube?
