In regards to the BB Storm, yes you do have to press and click down on the whole screen. BB wanted to have the appeal of a touchscreen but also knew that many of their customers liked the tactile feedback of a physical keyboard. So the idea they came up with seemed like a happy compromise between the two. I have also heard that with their design, the act of having to push down acts as a confirmation of sorts because a gentle swipe can lead to accidental keys being pushed on a traditional touchscreen.
