Default CRN "Smartphone Smarts" article 12/1/08

Please Login to Remove!

Was anyone as unimpressed by this recent CRN article? (you can also check their website at crn.com)

The biased author Awarded a "win" to iPhone on the merit of it's SIZE rather than pixel count. Storm wins.

The author also awarded memory size to the iPhone at 8GB, even though the Storm has the same (plus 1GB onboard) and can be readily upgraded to 16GB for less thatn the $100 cost of an iPhone upgrade. Again, Storm wins.

The Storm also offers 15 days of standby time , over 12.5 days for the iPhone, as far as battery life goes. The iPhone was awarded the "win" on the merits of its longer Wi-Fi talk time, I guess.

The Multimedia function was also a toss-up in my eyes, and not an Apple "win".

What are the odds this moron owns an iPhone?
