Like mentioned in previous posts, they are two completely different devices who's target groups are also totally different. Sure that they are 2 phones but its like comparing a sports car with a SUV. Two very different kind of vehicles. Ultimately the consumer is the one who makes the choice depending on their needs.
That's at least my thoughts on this issue. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
by now the Storm reviews are worst than the 3G issue of the iphone 3 months ago.

lol... also on ebay, bestbuy, amazon, local classified, etc. I sold 2 for $400 each in less than 5 minutes.
The fact that the Storm does not have wifi is a deal breaker for me. I'll stick with my 3G iPhone and Curve.

Unfortunately, touch screen in Storm is not as good as Iphone.
I guess we have to wait and see if newer BBs improve on what's lacking. Still have some areas that could improve. I'm confident that better BBs will come out soon. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

Here is why:
The iPhone has a very simple "one touch" conventional type input method. One simply touches a "button" on the screen and the input is registered. No learning curve, it's just capacitive technology.
The Storm has SurePress technology in which one actually presses in on the screen, and experiences a tactile sensation as though they actually pressed a button. This takes a short while to become acclimated to, and to feel comfortable with. However once one adapts, SurePress has many benefits. Some that haven't even been experienced yet.
Therefore in a world of instant gratification, the iPhone is simple and there is nothing to learn. As a result people automatically judge it as the best, when they have not given the Storm an opportunity to show off it's superior, more accurate input method. I would liken it to the first reactions that people had when trying out SureType, a brilliant input method that RIM created to reduce the size of the keyboard while retaining full functionality. Over a short period of time, it will become apparent how valuable and clever SurePress is and the picture will change. There will be demand for the Storm based on that technology and it's superior benefits, as compared to the iPhone.
The iphone hands down! Specifically a Jailbroken Iphone because NO blackberry will compare to it afterwards.

Sure the Iphone is a better phone. The OS is almost flawless as I use my phone to the fullest every day. Phone,Ipod,internet,games,youtube,
The only thing it lacks is flash.
I use an 8100 for 2 years, 8830 for 1 1/2 years, curve for a month, played with the storm which was the worst phone ever created. Sure looks pretty but takes you too long to do anything on the phone.
So the Iphone is my vote.

The constant penis measuring that goes on here with each side claiming superiority over the other is absurd. If you think the iphone is the better phone for you then great. If you think a BB (whether it is a Bold, a Storm or another type) is the better phone for you then great as well. There is simply no need for everyone to keep sticking their chest out while screaming out how much better their phone is as a matter of fact and not opinion. I have used them both and I like them both. I do not find that either is superior than the other in all aspects. I see pros and cons to both phones for my usage.
It sure would be nice if everyone could play together in the sandbox without dropping trou and leaving a present for everyone else.
