RIM’s (RIMM) touchscreen BlackBerry Storm has been a good seller thanks to a huge marketing push by Verizon Wireless, including a long buy-one, get-one free sale. But its crappy “click-screen” display slows down typing and makes navigation awkward, making it a sloppy rival to Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone.
