Default Blackberry - Storm (Touchscreen)

Looking forward...

"A storm's arrival typically isn't something to celebrate, but we're going to make a notable exception here seeing how the BlackBerry Storm is less of a destructive weather pattern and more of an incredibly hot smartphone -- arguably RIM's hottest to date. Fit to its business-savvy roots, the long-rumored handset comes equipped with the most comprehensive global roaming capabilities of virtually any wireless device you'll find anywhere, featuring EV-DO Rev. A, quadband EDGE, and 2100MHz HSPA for Europe. Beyond that, the Storm becomes RIM's very first touchscreen phone, mounting a 3.26-inch 480 x 360 glass display on a unique clickable surface so that the entire thing can be pressed downwards -- just like a real button -- for tactile feedback when making selections. It includes a full HTML finger-navigable browser, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint editing capabilities, Bluetooth 2.0, 1GB of on-board storage with an 8GB microSD card bundled in the box, 3.5mm headphone jack, automatic orientation and ambient lighting sensors, and a 3.2-megapixel autofocus cam with dedicated flash, making it a legitimate jack-of-all-trades that seems likely to be able to handle even the most chaotic personal and professional lives users can throw its way. It'll allegedly do 15 days of standby or 5.5 hours of talk time on either GSM or CDMA networks. No word on pricing yet -- we're told all will be revealed "in the coming weeks" -- but it'll launch on both Verizon and Vodafone in November."








Ive been using the Bold since it first came out and im really enjoying it these days, 3G really makes things nice but it does come at a price. The battery life sucks, completely. I get it as to why, but they need to fix it. I cant get more than a day (approx 10hrs) on my battery (goes for 9 others in my company as well) so most actually turn off the 3G unless needed. When this happens the battery life is extended to at least 3 days.

But yes, im realllllly over this Storm.

Heh, good ol' Storm. Old news. It's not a bad phone but if you're good with the Bold.. I'd wait for the "next" batch. Heh, they finally chose that design for the buttons... interesting.

It looks great. I can't stand the traditional blackberry form factor, where half of the unit's footprint is taken up by a keyboard with tiny little buttons. This is a welcome improvement!

Looks nice, but it's gotta be around $800 when it comes out.

Picked up mine today at the store, cost me $199 plus the $50 mail in rebate. The touch screen takes some getting use to, but I am really like it so far. The 8gig memory card it comes with is pretty nice also.

maybe verizon didn't specify they wanted wifi? i'm sure if it makes its way to other networks it will have wifi, blackberry is pretty peculiar like that, look at my 8130, no wifi, yet the 8120 has it... too bad the 8120 isn't a sprint phone

If I bought a phone like that I probably wouldn't get a data plan, I'd rather just go to a hotspot to use it. Campus has wifi everywhere...

I have always had the data plan, which was $50 a month extra in the past, but verizon has moved to the $30 data plan for non corporate users. Plus I use the heck out of the VZNavigator when I travel for work. Easier to just carry my phone with GPS then my phone and GPS unit.

Yeah, once I graduate, I'll probably have to travel a lot for work, so I'd get the data plan then, but I'd likely go without it until I'm out of school. Just can't see spending $30/month on something I wouldn't use too much since I have wifi everywhere I go.

Telus in Canada is getting this phone too, I was thinking of getting one as I'm sure I can get it cheap since my contract is almost up (and recoup any fees by selling my pearl) but ill wait for reviews and OS updates.. I'm happy with my pearl so far.. Using it to type this. 15 cdn unlimited data plan FTW
