After the not-so-good response from the Blackberry Storm due to its various discomforts found in it as per a touch-screen phone, the company has arrived back in the market with a new technology for Touch Sensing known as SurePress. This technology uses 4 sensors under the screen located at four ends while the previous Storm used a single sensor located at the middle of the screen.
