Ok .. Easy poll which would you get if you had to choose?
storm for sure....... but im a big blackberry fan
iPhone for me
Not sure, only used the iPhone, never the Storm. If I had to choose fresh today without knowing anything about either I'd probably go for iPhone.
If I HAAAAD to choose, Blackberry Storm. But I really don't like touchscreen phones. I'd advice option 3... something with buttons.
I'm a HUGE Blackberry fan, but I would not buy the Storm. I tried one out recently and I thought it was terrible. It was difficult for me to type on it, and it was painfully slow. My 2 cents.
did you think the internet was slow, or the commands?
iPhone - Apple's speciality is making the complicated seem simple...
I like both, but I hate the iPhone image.
I had the iPhone before the Storm came out, but having seen the Storm, I would still go with the iPhone. Much more intuitive interface, iTunes library and App Store were/are the kickers for me.
Both, although the internet speeds bearable. The worst was when turning from portrait to landscape orientation, it took several seconds to switch the screen. I did not like how you have to push down on the screen to enter a touch. Maybe that's because I wasn't used to it, but I played with one for quite a while and it was not growing on me.
When I was reading about the Storm, I really wanted to like it more... but my father has an iPhone and after seeing the Storm, it just doesn't measure up to the iPhone to me. The Storm isn't horrible, and if I were on Verizon already, then I don't know that I'd switch to AT&T just for the iPhone... but I'm already with AT&T so the Storm would have to be significantly better than the iPhone to get me to go through the aggravation of switching providers.
I'm 100% with Stuart on this one.
I have both - an iPhone 3G and a Storm. I've got the Flip (8220) also.
So, naturally, I use the Bold 9000 BlackBerry.
The iPhone has a phenomenal UI and the App Store is filled with applications like "Pull My Finger". As a long time BB user, it was missing just enough that I didn't choose to move over from the BB.
Then the Storm came out. Interesting touchscreen with the haptic feedback. If you have NEVER used a BB, then the Storm may work for you.
As for me, I love the Bold
Neither. I'm over 45
I had the 2g iphone and now I have the 3g. The Blackberrys (or is that Blackberries?) are nice Ive messed with them before but the Iphone to me is a much better choice!
One importantant factor - what does your empolyer support? We're a Fortune 10 company, and no way we'll let an iPhone on the network TODAY. It's getting better, but the security isn't up to snuff YET.
They'll be there soon, but not yet.
If the I phone was on Verizon's network I would pick it. So I will have to go with the Storm.
iphone has better apps.
Based on the commercials, I want a Storm... That said, David Pogue of The New York Times wanted to like it, but couldn't. Here's what he had to say: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/27/technology/personaltech/27pogue.html?scp=3&sq=storm pogue&st=cse
He followed it up in December with this: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/04/t...4pogue-email.html?scp=2&sq=storm pogue&st=cse
Apparently about 100 readers wrote him to say they bought the Storm and regretted it.
