Storm 2 Stripped Down To The Nitty Gritty!

Some interesting things to be saw over at The BlackBerry Zone today. Britishturbo has taken the time to strip a Storm 2 down to all its naked splendid glory to show you all exactly what's up inside. A completed tear down wouldn't be complete without an explanation of how the keyboard will work, and Britishturbo does an awesome job of explaining how and why Kevin was indeed correct with his Piezo technology usage in the device. Be sure to check it out - it's a great run through of the device.

BT gives a great breakdown of the underlying tech for the Storm2

so where'd the thread disappear to?

One of the pictures shows that the speaker for the S2 is now on the bottom edge right above the smoked chrome ring on the phone. Nice to see more detail....how long until RIM forces those pictures to come down.

I think that is actually one of the soft keys at the top of the phone, like the mute button.

If you look at the bottom edge of the S1 you can see the microphone is actually a small hole on the left side below the send/blackberry key. On the S2 it also has a small hole but now is on the right side. I believe that is the microphone and the speaker on the edge below is the speaker for playback of music, etc.

The speaker is located right below the Qualcomm 3G CDMA wording on the base of the phone...with the small pin hole for the microphone located below the end button (portion of the screen). The place I am referring to has the same wire screen as the current ear piece on the S1

Actually we're both wrong. It's one of the top buttons. If you look at the pics you'll see that the screw holes at the top of the phone are notched (open), which means what we're looking at is the top of the phone. That's one of the buttons. At the bottom of the phone, the screws are sunk into holes are are not notched (perfect circle for the hole). Hope that makes sense.

That was exactly what I was thinking too.

Folks - not sure if we are talking about the same thing. Kevin or Sal - care to jump in here? Check out the second picture at this link:

There is a picture of the assembled phone and on the bottom edge is what appears to be a speaker grill below the Qualcomm 3G CDMA below the bottom edge of the screen.

I know where the speaker grille is. That is a button. Look at this pic and look closely at the edges of the screw holes. http://www.theblackberryzone.com/forums/images/s2/s24.jpg

See how the screws at the top of the phone (where the buttons are) have cutouts in the endges. Now look at the pic of the button in question... the screw holes is the same in that pic. The bottom screw holes have complete edges... you're looking at the top of the device, not the bottom.

How nice would it be to get this as a birthday gift.

ppl who use full touch screen for blackberry (BB Storm) must be just kids who want a toy device or real fools.

If you want a full touch screen toy-like device, get iPhone.

I"m sorry - I can still too much of that Storm peeking out from behind your ridiculosly huge logo. Could you either make the logo bigger, or please just stop with posting images of things that take away from my viewing enjoyment of that fine fat-@ss logo of yours?
I can barely see it, with that junk surrounding it.
Seriously - we want more logo.
