    With the Storm, customers can access consumer friendly IM, Yahoo! Messenger, Windows Live Messenger and GoogleTalk, while still receiving access to the always popular BlackBerry Messenger.

    Tethering Storm to a laptop is ideal for those who frequently travel and need to use a laptop to check e-mail, access corporate networks or download large files like presentations and reports.

    For me Touch Devices in the past have been exceedingly frustrating. It will be interesting to see how efficient and intuitive the Storm can be , but I will not be one of the guinea pigs to find out.
