I've got mixed reviews but I'm sure that with the update it will be much better. I can't wait to try a storm up close and personal. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
Rest assured that I'm the first one to speak ever so highly of RIM, their product the BlackBerry, and the wide variety of models that we have to choose from. I'm also very fair and open minded in evaluating each new BlackBerry model. After all they have a great operation, a very skilled staff of R&D experts, engineers and the like.

I'm not here to patronize the company, or mislead the people here fondly known as "Stackers". My goal is to contribute to this forum, and to share the experience I have with each new BlackBerry model so as to help those who may be trying to decide what to purchase. By supplying them with information presented in a positive yet honest manner, they have more to work with in the decision making process.
So as we go forward I hope to find RIM making better decisions and releasing BlackBerrys that are fully debugged. RIM needs to stop this trend of shipping phones that require immediate updates of the very operating system that was once so reliable. What's needed is to provide the customer an enjoyable experience from the moment they remove it from the box.
I like the Storm for what it was, but practically, I didn't find it very practical...my issues with the Storm wasn't OS related...I didn't like the Storm enough to trade it for my Bold, but I've read elsewhere that others are loving it. I think it's down to personal choice...however, I do think it's a bit wack IMO that in order to get the best of your Blackberry (any model) that you always have to update the OS.
Exactly! That's the point.

But then again with the way the market is growing and going, you have to push devices in the hands of "mainstream" customers before another company does and thats where the problem is.
Because dont customers wont wait yet they wont keep up with updates.
If you wait you lose those customers and you get the BB fanatics a perfect device.
Rim chose the hard way :
Keep BOTH customer sides, make on side (mainstream) work hard (keep up with updates) and the other side (US) mad for a week and upgraded to Beta OS as soon as they leaked and then happy again.
