Last week we talked ranted about Verizon’s weekly internal Storm press release, Talking Up A Storm, and it looks like they are holding true to their hump day plan. More information was released today, mostly about the multimedia capability of the Storm. They talked about the 3.2 mega pixel camera, the ability to shoot video and their Facebook/Flickr support.
This announcement doesn’t really bring us anything we didn’t already know but it is our duty to provide you with the news. They also seem to love pointing out that they are the United State’s largest 3G network 🙂 I wonder if they are poking fun at some of the other major carriers that have had problems recently?
When we launch the world’s first touch-screen BlackBerry – the Storm – it will boast a 3.2 megapixel camera.
Storm’s high-quality camera and camcorder, along with BlackBerry’s reliable email features, make it the perfect device for anyone who wants to carry a mobile phone, camera and laptop all in one device.
And don’t forget, it all runs only on America’s Largest 3G Network – because a device is only as good as the network it’s on.
A look at what makes the Storm’s camera and camcorder features unique:
Talk Up A Storm – 3.2 Megapixel Camera and Camcorder
- Snap and Share – Customers can use the high-quality 3.2 megapixel camera to take pictures and record videos wherever they are and then share their pictures and videos with others via picture messaging
- Upload to Facebook and Flickr – Customers can upload pictures they take with the Storm to the popular social networking applications Facebook and Flickr, which are preloaded on the Storm right out of the box.
- Record Video – Customers can record video in the normal (240 x 180) format that can be stored on the 8GB MicroSD card included in the Storm box (an 8 GB SanDisk microSD memory card comes pre-installed in the BlackBerry Storm), or customers can switch to MMS mode and record 30 second clips that can be sent via picture message.
