    Is there a way to attach my Storm 2 to my laptop. Open up a website, thru the Storm 2's browser, and see the website on my laptop?
    Thanks in advance

    Sorry River, the Storm 2 doesn't have a display out.

    How ever in reference to what eclipse has said, you can connect your BlackBerry to your computer and use your BBs internet on your laptop in a practice called "tethering"

    You storm would act like a modem while tethering

    too bulky. the Playbook is a better option, albeit not available for a few months.

    I haven't had this much lust for a device, in a very long time! My 4G touch wasn't this exciting...

    ah, isn't it about the size of a 5x7 card (but thicker)??? I love that it's smaller than the iCan't, but has a 1024 screen for some potentially awesome looking video playback and web surfing, to name just 2 functions.

    ok. and u are saying u won't be able to get a 5x7" device in one of those pockets??

    to tell the truth, if I get one, I wouldn't likely be carrying it with me everywhere, but I think it would be useful despite not being ultra-portable like a normal-sized cell phone. I believe the Samsung Tab and the Playbook are going to be selling in decent numbers.

    Uh... doesn't the OP say "on my laptop?" Why are we discussing other devices? I love it how the OP hasn't chimed in since asking. Seems like Tether would be what they're looking for. Using your BB internet on your laptop...

    I think the rest of us can read. Who appointed you the arbiter of what can be discussed here?

    and are you going to drag a laptop around with YOU??

    Actually, I keep my laptop with me most of the time .

    But it has nothing to do with me or you. The OP clearly says "my LAPTOP." NOT some other device. Don't get mad at me because you're going off on a tangent.

    I'm not accusing anyone of anything. But this thing went off topic quick and the original question never got answered. Why so sensitive?

    Calm down BOTH of you, and BACK on TRACK! Several posts were deleted! Live with it!

    Ok the subject at hand, another product I have found to do this is Bayalink Liberty, which offers a free 30 day trial, and is a VERY interesting product. Basically it lets you sorta tether, or use your Berry thru your PC, but closer to what Redfly does than what the Tether app does, but you use your PC rather than buy the Redfly terminal, and you just pay for the app.

    Since there's no way to do what OP is asking we're just giving other options. Easy cowboy.

    Here's the answer to the OPs question: NO. Is that better?
