Well. I here you all. I just want to comment on the statement that the bold is the buggiest device ever. I own and operate 2 businesses. I work in the music industry with some of the top dogs, so my bb is my world. I've owed or tried almost every smartphone out and that wasn't released. I bought the bold the day it was released. All I have to say is, "It's the BEST device I've ever owned or used". It does what its supposed to and its fast as heck!!! I use the iphone as a toy! LOL! As a matter of fact I gave it to my 12 year old.
the bold is still better in everyway!!! no lag!!!
Personally I like my Storm and couldn't care less what anyone has to say about it . Everyone is free to use whatever device they prefer, thats the bottom line.

i have to agree with the post all i buy is rim products but they blew this launch its a subpar phone and the fact is a blackberry with out a physical keyboard dont make sense if rim spent more time on innovation instead of chasing behind apple OS 4.5 would have been out the bold launch would have went smoother the pearl filp would not have been or at least as much of a failure rim needs to get back to its grass roots
I still don't think that I could ever warm up to touch screen. For a multi media phgone maybe but smartphone no thanks. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
Well, I hate to be the lone dissenter in this group. Unfortunately I had an opportunity to play with a Storm today. One of my employees picked one up on release day, in Redmond. I think I pay these guys too much!!
I spent an hour or so playing with the device, sending myself emails etc. I am not impressed. I know I will no longer be waiting in line when Telus releases them (if they release them) in time for Christmas.
I have to agree that I couldn't send the several dozen emails I send on a daily basis using this device. My responses would be limited to three letter words. Yup, LoL, OK, or..... `I`ll call you`.
I don`t have huge fingers and I couldn`t get the proper letters to save my life. It took about three sentences on my Curve, Bold, 8800 etc to get used to the keyboards.
There may be a niche for the Storm, but I don`t think the business user is going to fit that niche!

I don't think you're the lone dissenter. I played with one today and frankly, until they work out some of the glitches it's not ready for my needs. It's a really cool device -- don't get me wrong. But with the quantity of e-mail I need to send and receive, the keyboard pretty much blew it for me. I just couldn't really make it work.
But I really do think it competes with the same market as the iPhone. I couldn't really type on that either so to me, they are about equal. And since I really like the BB interface better, I think I'd buy the Storm over the iPhone all other things being equal.
But you're right. For a business device, I don't think I can give up a physical keyboard just yet.
Here is an article from someone that also finds Pogue a #@&^-*
Whew! That's one unhappy camper!
The entire review he's written is as scathing and negative as this snippet I've shared so you can see his experience has been not only bad but horrible.
I don't know what to tell David other than this is the opposite of my own experience of a week with a Storm.
It's not perfect, I haven't found a gadget yet that is in all respects.
But it does what I expect it to and I just haven't seen all the glitches and freezes that Pogue mentions.
I got a good laugh out of this one... source
Not the first time NewYork Times put out a biased report.
Not much to add other than you mis-spelled STORM in your title. You wrote STROM
