Touch Screen BlackBerry Storm (RIM)

The first Touch Screen BlackBerry is about to come out on Verizon Wireless. Introducing the BlackBerry STORM.

BlackBerry devices are great for corporate users, but not so good for clinicians. Too few relevant medical applications exist for the BlackBerry. Perhaps the release of a touch screen device will change that. I've always been a user of a touch screen device. Starting with the Palm OS, then Windows CE, then Pocket PC, and now with Windows Mobile. I tried using the non-touch screen Motorola Q for a few days, and that just didn't work for me. Having a touch screen improves efficiency, quickens navigation, and allows for so much more productivity. I'm glad to see that BlackBerry finally realized the need to release a touch screen device. Let's see how the Storm does once it's released.


  1. Dr. Kim, I am doing a bit of research on the use of BlackBerrys in the environmental health realm, and wondered if you could provide some insight. Thank you.

  4. Hi Dr Kim,
    If you are interested in touch screen technology for healthcare - take a look at this clinical system. ALERT life sciences.

    Let me know what you think!
