Thumbnail image for blackberrythunderstorm.jpgBlackBerry Storm owners can breathe a sigh of relief because the official Verzion BlackBerry Storm Update OS is being reviewed and it is seen as a godsend. It transforms the BlackBerry Storm into a quality, lovable device.

Worst to Quality
Matt Burns at TechGear wrote "It's now a quality phone that's worthy of the BlackBerry name." He noted they were "instantly pleased" after the download of 198 megabytes, took two hours.  Overall, everything is faster and more responsive; dialing, browsing, and photo taking.  There is a neat function added to text selection, a box appears around the selected text that can
be easily slid one way or the other to modify the selection. "It took the Storm from one of the worst phones ever made, to a quality BlackBerry."

New Found Love
Kyle at BlackBerry Cool comments that everything is more responsive and loves the new copy and paste selection tool. Browsing is improved and there's a a little green "Go" button. The screen lock works. He has a "new found love" for the BlackBerry Storm.
