    Storm spec advantages vs iPhone

    Advertisement



    So, as expected, the iPhoners are flaming in almost every blog...

    Figured I might help by putting the spec comparison to rest.
    Here's a copy/paste of a recent reply I put together:

    hmmm, let's see....

    Storm vs iPhone (aka: Storm DOES have, iPhone DOES NOT have):

    - 3D click-through screen (capacitive touch PLUS tactile click)
    - MMS (TXT messages with pictures attached)
    - ability to record videos
    - WMV video support
    - WMA audio support
    - 3GPP RTSP website audio/video streaming
    - copy/paste via multitouch
    - better camera (3.2mp vs 2mp = 60% improvement)
    - 2x digital camera zoom (vs none)
    - camera flash
    - camera autofocus & image stabilization
    - better screen resolution (480x360 vs 480x320 = 12% improvement)
    - full QWERTY keyboard (PLUS SureType)
    - second mic for active noise cancellation during phone calls
    - removable/replaceable battery
    - better battery life w/ 1400 mAhr (5.5-6.0hrs vs 5.0hrs = 10-20% improvement)
    - replaceable metal backing (vs plastic, non-replaceable)
    - MicroSD memory card expandable up to 32GB
    - 10x hard buttons (4 front, 2 top, 4 side)
    - voice-command dialing
    - global phone: CDMA/EVDO.A/UMTS/HSPA/EDGE/GPRS/GSM (works on VZW and includes a SIM card for travel abroad)
    - true, lean email push w/ compression (vs battery draining ping-pong workaround)
    - DOD-level encryption and security (with remote management via BES or Unite)
    - syncronize contacts, tasks, memos, calendar with Yahoo! PIM, Outlook, Lotus Notes, etc
    - save attachments & send attachments from media card or internal memory
    - open PDF, DOC, XLS, PPT files
    - invite attendees to calendar meetings
    - ability to use any music manager (vs iTunes-only restriction)
    - high-speed PC modem via USB tethering
    - third-party application multitasking (aka background applications)
    - Assisted GPS for turn-by-turn voice navigation with third-party applications
    - mass storage mode (allows drag/drop of files via Windows Explorer)
    - BlueTooth 2.0 with stereo headset, A2DP/AVRCP audio streaming, file-sharing, wireless printing, etc
    - horizontal charging dock for "clock mode" and movie viewing
    - better Verizon contracts and cheaper price plans
    - better 3G network (Verizon EVDO Rev. A vs AT&T HSDPA scarce coverage and slower uploads)
    - open architecture app install (vs Apple collecting a buck for EVERYTHING you buy)


    On AT&T, spotty 3G coverage requires the WiFi alternative...
    VZW 3G coverage is everywhere, hence no need to compensate with an additional chip that would raise prices and reduce battery life.

    iPhone, game over.

    Interesting... just when I thought every single piece of informatoin out there was repeated I actually saw somethings here that is "news to me". 32 meg expandable? BlackBerry.com says only 16. And I've never seen any mention of the dock, but am totally stoked about it!

    I just wish it would come out before the 24th when I go on vacation, but obviously that's not going to be an option! Darn.

    Here's a pic of the dock via Engadget:



    The Storm enters into "clock mode" automatically when on the dock... good stuff.

    That is SWEET! And a fine lookin' clock she is!! One for the bedroom, one for the office, one for the kitchen... LOL

    (I anticipate heavy battery drain, why not have docks everywhere!?!?)

    from what i have seen on the blogs and forums, it will depend on the OS in regards to amount of "expandable" storage.

    can you imagine? up to 32gb expandable i don't even own that much digital media (i need to start digitalizing my cd collection now!!)

    The 32GB ones are just coming out now. The reason that the phone manufacturers don't want to state that they support 32GB too early is that they don't know if the media card manufacturers are going to do anything non-spec when they create them. (if they stick to the spec, they SHOULD work)
    Haven't gone looking as I really haven't been hitting the limit with the one I have in my Bold. (and we all know memory prices only come down)
