    OT: Blackberry Storm; (merged cell phone thread)

    I went to a verizon store this morning to have them give me a new trackball for my curve and I had time to play with the Storm and I think its a real piece of crap. The touchscreen keyboard is a fail. The software is really slow. I know RIM is trying to take on the iphone, but this device seems like it was rushed for the holidays and has major software problems. See the crackberry.com boards, I'm not the only one.

    Has anyone here bought one? Thoughts.

    You should have gotten an iPhone.

    I knew you'd chime in and suggest that....

    Corporate rules, we have to be on Verizon at my company....thought the Storm had potential, but it comes up way short.

    I bought an iPhone yesterday, and I don't how anyone can ever live without it. It's so awesome.

    I'll say it once, and I'll say it a million times... Never, EVER buy a 1st generation item electronic toy. I can't remember the last "must have" first generation electronic product that didn't have major issues.

    This is such a funny pitch for the product it made me laugh... Your life will not be complete... you are a human failure, until you buy an iphone.

    I know you are partially joking, but I thought it was funny.

    That's correct. I'm only marginally better than a human failure now that I own this phone. It's that good.

    The Apple iPhone.

    They ran about 10 commercials during the game yesterday alone. In between all those commercials for old man boner medication.

    How the hell does someone who spends a significant amount of their time on the internet not know what an iPhone is? This is almost worst than McNabb not knowing about ties.

    For me, a phone should be as tiny as possible with the best battery life possible. That's why I adore my Motorola KRZR. The iPhone is bulky (by cellphone standards) and has questionable battery life when you use the audio/video features as you would the iPod Touch. Bring your iPhone on a flight to Vegas, watch two movies, get off the plane, your battery is dead.

    The iTouch has double the storage capacity and 30% more battery life and allows you to have a phone that's a world-class phone and a media player that's a world-class media player. The iPhone, I find, is a compromise of both. Not the best phone, not the best media player.

    So which statement is true? Or is this like everything else you post, it's all crap until you buy one, then it's the best money can buy?

    Dude, you're so out of touch. It's a phone for your eye. The Eye phone lets you call people just by looking at the numbers.
