BlackBerry Storm torn apart and mysteries revealed

All the rage behind the BlackBerry Storm seems to be the clickable screen. It isn’t the OS, email capabilities, or media player but the clickable screen so the obligatory teardown focuses on that mystery. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem that RIM developed any screen clicking magic rather installing a a single button underneath the screen’s backplate. The disassembly also found the source of the sluggish OS is the slowish Qualcomm MSM7600 CPU. So there you have it on this Monday morning, kiddies; some circuit board pr0n.
