    Looks cool, personally I love my iphone but have had several blackberries and love them too. They are my second choice.

    we saw all the iphones clones. failed.
    and this one will fail as well, my guess is that it will have a different platform which will make all the apps of the other blackberries incompatible with this one

    idk the instinct and the Dare
    are 2 badass phones

    maybe that or ive just already experienced what apple has to offer
    so the change in looks and design is attracting me?

    thought it was called the thunder still. it looks like itll pack a big punch when finally released. i wanna actually get rid of my 3g for the bold. my pal got his off ebay for a pretty penny and other than the browser which is decent, its a great phone

    edit:
    saw the official branding still liked the thunder name better =]

    its not bad
    im pretty sure im gonna get it
    that or the bold
    but im wonderling if the Storm has Wi-Fi like the Bold?

    so either traffic on this forum has slowed down since ive been gone
    or just no one is interested on this topic??

    Looks nice, too bad its a VZW exclusive.

    The Instinct and the Dare are far from badass, IMHO. I tried them both, and the touch interface is not even close to the iPhone's. They are both poor copies at best.
    Apples taste good.

    some places are saying that it has a sim card in it
    so i assume it can hold one???
    idk im doin some more research but there isnt much info out at the moment

    and towards "kruejl"
    i can see what your saying but dont you ever get the feeling that your iphone/itouch is a bit to sensitive and that you dont have to press down

    imho i think that being able to press down and actually "feel" what your doing is a bonus with the mini vibrations and all

    ^^^I have had many touch devices, and they all had the soft, plastic screen that gives a bit when pressed. The iPhone screen seems so much stronger and its less likely to scratch. Haptics (vibration) are nice to let you know you pressed a "key" but the iPhone scrolls so much nicer. Just personal taste I suppose.

    oh i completely agree with you on that..it would be a personal preference

    ahh i started looking at the Garmin Nuvifone

    and damnnnnn
    so now i gotta make up my mind
    which do i like better
    now that ive read about the nuvifone a bit more im liking it more
    Garmin | nüvifone - Press Release

    but we both have our valid points lol

    Oh man it is a very difficult position you are suffering now cause both iphone and blackberry is a quite a difficult to judge for.
    But the advice is it depends on your work , if you are into a a more serious business stuff and you need a faithful PA , then storm is gonna be better and if you think that you are into some real richboy showoff , then iphone is gonna rock out.

    the iphones UI is nicer but blackbery has lots off apps that you can download OTA (over the air) and makes for easy install, plus it seems to have a working "push" system so to me its a toss up between looks and apps

    Ive never been disappointed with the blackberry's ive had. Im glad there are more and more companies pushing touch screens. It provokes thought and ideas for devs. and designers on our side. (iphone) I think youll be happy always with a blackberry and if you do get it, let us all know how it is. Im starting to turn into a complete phone hobbyist. Who knows I might even pick up the newest edition to TMo (HTC Dream) just to check it out.

    i wonder if that dream will be unlockable
    ahh so many phones so little money ahahah

    Lol^^

    Its too round.. sorta reminds me of an egg... And looks too small.. Older blackberrys look nicer imo

    Also is that what the phone is actually gonna look like or is it just a concept image?
