The BlackBerry Storm2 smartphone (model 9520) from Vodafone features:

New SurePress Technology
The BlackBerry Storm2 smartphone introduces a new SurePress™ technology based on an electronic system that provides the user with tactile feedback when the touch-screen is pressed. The new system responds equally to gentle pressure applied anywhere on the surface of the screen and makes clicking the display practically effortless. Typing on the smartphone's virtual keyboards is easier, more comfortable and more accurate. The new SurePress technology also allows the user to type a letter with one thumb even while their other thumb may still be touching or resting on another letter, enabling faster typing and multi-key actions such as Shift or Alt -key combinations.

    Hi. I wanted to drop you a quick note to verbalize my thanks. I've been watching your blog for a month or so and have picked up a heap of good information as well as enjoyed the way you've structured your site. I am undertaking to run my own blog however I think its too general and I would like to focus more on smaller topics.

    It's actually rare for hiopps to live over 50 years old in captivity or the wild. There is a video about on this Youtube simply titled Blackie the Hippo . Blackie once lived inside of the Pachyderm Building which was the elephants old home at the Cleveland Zoo. It also housed a pygmy hippo, a Malayan tapir, and a family of warthogs. I also miss the warthogs but I think they were sent to another zoo.

    This video makes me miss the Cleveland Zoo's hippopotamus. His name is Blackie and he still rieedss at the Cleveland zoo except that he is not on public exhibit due to his old age. He lives inside of the giraffe barn with plenty to eat and a heated pool. Blackie is over 53 years old which makes him the oldest hippo in North America.
