Blackberry Storm?

Anyone got one of these? I just got one today and am having second thoughts. It's slow and not real user friendly.. =(

I have the Instinct since I have Sprint. It's user friendly (like an iPhone) but the lack of applications (which they are slowly getting to) are a minimum.

Have you owned a Blackberry before (a newer one)? It looks to be easy to me like my Blackberry that I have for business purposes.

I'm waiting to see if the Storm eventually comes out for Sprint so I can play with one to see if I like it (like how we got the Pearl first before Verizon and AT&T got it).

Oh and is there a flash on the camera? Blackberry still leads over Apple overall so there's gotta be something better to hold taht spot with this phone.

Go with T-mobile and get the G1. Much better than the iPhone.

blackberry storm reminded me of htc touch when it first came out...slow processors = slow processing time!

the only bad thing about verizon is, they use cdma network...lots of cool aftermarket phones use gsm network....

perhaps, this MIGHT b an iphone killer!

It is my first blackberry. The camera (3.2mp)does have a flash and takes video. It's slowly growing on me as I get more comfortable. I was just using Google talk on it..

i used one..the click screen and UI is a joke compared to the iPhone. and isnt much cheaper anyway.


Black berry had a solid biz work phone and should have kept it with those buttons.

My friend has one. I can't stand it.

I've been using Blackberries for work for practically forever, and it just seems half-assed. RIM was probably thinking "touchscreen + blackberry = PROFIT!" which may be true for those who don't use Blackberries, but from someone who cannot live without his for work, I wouldn't use one if it was given to me. :P

The camera is nice though! Unless you work in areas where you cannot have one.

Nothing beats the feel of actually pressing a key rather than touching it.
Havent you wondered why touchscreeen keyboards are not practical?
