Digicel and Research In Motion (RIM) announced the new BlackBerry? Storm? smartphone for Digicel customers in all of its 26 markets in the Caribbean and Central America. The BlackBerry Storm delivers the renowned functionality and usability of the BlackBerry? solution and incorporates the world’s first ?clickable? touch-screen with advanced multimedia capabilities to deliver entertainment, information and communications at your fingertips.

The BlackBerry Storm is a perfect choice for customers looking for a state-of-the-art touch-screen smartphone. The stylish smartphone boasts exceptional performance, a stunning display and rich features including global connectivity support, GPS, web browser, media player, camera and the industry’s leading email and messaging capabilities ? all designed to give users an exceptional mobile experience.

The BlackBerry Storm smartphone features the revolutionary SurePress? touch-screen, which depresses ever so slightly when the screen is pressed to enhance the touch interface for both typing and navigation.
