1 month with the Storm

I was lucky enough to get a Blackberry Storm on launch day. Actually our Verizon rep hand delivered it to on that friday. After a month with it, I put it in my drawer on Thursday and went back to my Blackberry curve.

I'll keep the storm and see how it is when the next software release comes out. .75 helped a lot but it needs more help. The phone was often sluggish and non-responsive from time to time.

Sometimes the keyboard rocked and I got every letter right, and then some day's the keyboard sucked so bad I had to type in suretype mode to get anything done.

My most important app, Mobile Admin from rove mobile doesn't work very well with the storm. I noticed alot of apps were not updated to take advantage of the new OS. Which was to be expected this early on.

The Curve with OS 4.5 seems to be the best blackberry right now from Verizon. I've owned every model Blackberry that verizon carries and the Curve with 4.5 is a great combo.

The thing I loved the most about the storm was VZ Navigator. The bigger screen along with the faster processor and real GPS make it much better than the Curve version.

I was really hoping that this could be my 1 device to carry all the time. But I am seriously considering an iPhone for personal use. My wife has one and the browser blows the storm out of the water. I can't tell you how many errors I got on the storm saying "This page is too big" cannot be loaded on this browser. The iPhone just rocks in this respect.

Any questions? leave me a comment.
