Blackberry Storm screenshots emerge

Storm Reviews finds some photos that evince a minimalist look on Blackberry's forthcoming Storm. Most people are poring over the touchscreen keyboard, but isn't this clock lovely? Kelly Hodgkins at BGR, however, is unimpressed:

The calendar, email, and browser look incredibly text-based for a touchscreen device that promises to take the world by Storm. Where are all the pretty icons that we can tap on? Let’s hope these images are only a small sample and the rest of the UI is significantly better than what is shown. Otherwise, this is one Storm that may just go out to sea.

After Android's clunky look, at least in T-Mobile G1 form, surely it's hard to be down on RIM's unvarnished instincts. Plain old black 'n' white 'n' dull works for me: it's "invisible," in the Helvetica sense, which matters in a UI.
