    I'm waiting for the Treo Pro and have already stated in my bbm status that as soon as the Treo Pro is out, I'm gone.

    Both the Palm Pre and the Treo Pro are going to Sprint.

    1) OTA calendar and contact sync without have to use desktop redirector, BES or any 3rd party software.
    2) More medical software developed

    I know but im sure it wouldnt be to long before Palm goes knocking on Verizons door.... Those are the sort of things that come your way when your the largest carrier... especially when Palm is in desperate need of revenue.... and im sure a lot of people will not leave Verizon for Sprint....

As far as bb's go the official os's are usually stable including .76. A slow camera is NOT a unstable os, its a slow app. A lot of problems are user error too . Removing the wrong thing trying to save memory, not reading instructions properly, overworking the cpu, etc. Try to install/ uninstall a bunch of beta and official apps and os's on your PC. It'll probably be slow and buggy, freezing up too.
    Anyway I would like to see a full fledged browser, and an app store for all bb made by RIM. Developers could submit apps directly to RIM (not like the vzw storm only app).
    I agree that every make and model of phone has issues. However there is nothing new about that. Its been a fact of life for years. What _is_ new as of the last several months is the degradation of RIMs quality control, attention to detail, and failure to deliver a phone that operates properly. It's also RIMs problem that they are so disorganized & run a company that has such poor security that Beta software is leaking out like rainwater. All of these issues are new, as RIM seems to have suddenly become overwhelmed after their entry in to the consumer market. After all it is RIM themselves that trumpeted how fantastic the Bold would be during the press release last May. No other models were mentioned therefore the public was lead to believe the Bold would be the flagship & released during the summer as RIM announced. Summer came & went, no Bold. Then suddenly out of nowhere came the 8220 which leap frogged the Bold into the retail stores for sale. Still no word on the Bold. Then they barely get the Bold out, when the Storm hits. In the mean time the Bold is failing so badly that Orange in the UK pulls it from its lineup. From this writers opinion they could not possibly deal with three new devices which were released so close to one another and so filled with bugs. Performance problems and consumer complaints reinforced this. Thus he we have with a company that just one short year ago was building & selling terrific, secure, stable high quality smartphones without the very significant problems of today's models. Therefore for those of us with BlackBerry experience and who have watched them slide downhill, its disappointing and not conducive to consumer confidence. However that said its not unusual as we know for great companies to stumble and fall. It remains to be seen how they decide to handle this, as so far they seem overwhelmed. Time will tell.

    Hmm. Good point. It just seems the biggest unacceptable issues are with the storm. Most peoples curves, pearls, and bolds work fine. Yeah some of them complain but usually after a upgrade or app they installed. Maybe they messed with MML. Sometimes its faulty software or hardware but not always. RIM definitely need to step their game up, I just don't think its as bad a people make it seem. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I would also like to point out that perception is reality. If all you're reading is negative threads, or posts with reviews and complaints about beta os and first run phones it would appear to be an epidemic anyone. With .76 my storm was near flawless, save the slow camera and video cam gliching sometimes. If there was a way for e everyone to make threads about whats right about the storm and other bb's without being redundant we probably would. Peoples image of RIM would change too.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Another one here for an app store. It should have already been up and running, but it's not so we must wait. Once it becomes available, it should have not only useful ones, but some fun and entertaining apps (similar or better than a certain competitor's app store).

    I totally agree, 100%. Even though I'm using Windows right now, and will be getting a free HP laptop, complements of Brown College; I'm going to be buying myself a 15" MacBook Pro and I really, really want Mac-compatible software.

    The new CDK for us to start making themes for the storm users so they stop complaining about the lack of themes
    What's the matter? CIA's got you pushing too many pencils?

    I can't believe we all didn't say that. The stock one is cool but a lil "blueprint" wouldn't hurt~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I think RIM should try and support Android before they become one of the only few smart phone manufactures who don't.

    I seriously dont believe RIM would think its fans would be content with the STORM as is, and not giving us ways to at least have cool themes to pass the time... and to add insult to injury they only gave it one stock theme.... COME ON RIM... EQUAL BLACKBERRYS UNDER LAW.....lol
