    Default BlackBerry Storm
    Sorry, didn;t know where to post this....


    Just saw the blackberry storm commercial, which prompted me to hop onto youtube. Our commercial is weak compared to the UK (it's on vodaphone I think that's UK). Anyway, looks hot and should be coming by the end of the month from what I read. What do you all think?

    Vodaphone ad:
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stzqLqBUECc]YouTube - BlackBerry Storm Ad from Vodafone[/ame]

    Verizon Wireless ad:
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrVgXt12lOY]YouTube - Verizon BlackBerry Storm Commercial (Better Quality)[/ame]

    ^^ lol. The storm looks to be the first worthy competitor to the iPhone. But this is prelim, we'll have to re-examine after a month or so to see how well recieved it was.
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

    Yes it will definitely compete!!!

    however 2 things hurting it....

    the base plan (vzw) is $10 more than ATT's iPhone totalling $79.99/month AND you are limited to 5 gigs download/month

    no wifi... this was just a stupid move IMO

    they claim there wasn't enough room for wifi... that might be a dealbreaker for me, really. I have bad 3G VZW reception in my house... I don;t want to walk outside to download stuff. SUre you can download it and then use the BlackBerry installer thing via USB but that just seems like an unnecessary step. Ah well, can;t have it all with any device it seems, lol

    it's funny that BlackBerry said "screw you" to their users and denied them a touch screen until the iPhone started destroying everything in it's path ..... then it was
    "OH, you said touch screen, no we'll do that for you - we thought you said something else".

    Now it acts and looks like an iphone interface, yet lacks key features necessary like WIFI (I mean, WTF?). Blackberry is one of only three contenders and without WIFI, they aren't even in the race.

    FAIL.

    Looks like it'll be up to HTC and Google to duke it out for SECOND PLACE.

    Yeah.... There's no WiFi? I'm not even going to consider it. I couldn't stand only being able to use a data plan...

    Consensus? No WiFi seems to be killing this phone, at least for us MMI users
