BlackBerry Storm 2 Explainer Features Piezoelectricity, Wi-Fi

An exhaustive BlackBerry Storm 2 (9550) video has hit YouTube this weekend that details how the upcoming mobile's piezo electric screen is miles ahead of the original's big clicky button. Oh, and that Wi-Fi thing makes another appearance too.

Now, the clicky thing is still there, of course, but thanks to that aforementioned piezo electronic screen there's no lag between presses, and texting or emails—staples of any BlackBerry addict's repertoire—are a breeze.

The demo phone is also a Verizon one, by the way, so when Wi-Fi pops up early on in the video, it lends further credence to our earlier reporting about the carrier unblocking that functionality when the phone hits in September. [YouTube via Engadget]
