1st of all - this isn't a reality check, it's iPhone bashing. You're basically only comparing those features that you know the iPhone lacks and the Storm doesn't. Any why is it you compare the Storm, which was released AFTER the iPhone 3G, to the 1st gen iPhone? And then you complain about lower data speeds in the iPhone 3G?
Let's do some more reality checking here and compare the Storm to Nokia's first gen communicator, that was released about 8 years ago:
HTML Browser: yes
Colo(u)r screen: yes (back then you probably still spelled that with a "u")
Browsing-Speed: relatively fast, but not insanely fast
Infrared port: nope
External numeric keyboard: nope
Number of screens: only one
Antenna that can be extended: nooooo
Nokia Communicator (aka: the brick):
HTML Browser: WTF is HTML? It doesn't even do WAP.
Colour screen: not yet
Browsing-speed: browsing??? 9.6kbit/s should be enough for everyone
Weight: 1kg (almost)
Infrared port: YES!!!!
QWERTY-keyboard: sure as heck
External numeric keyboard: absolutey. the nokia rules
Number of screens: a whopping TWO, in your FACE Storm
Antenna that can be extended: you betcha. Makes the brick the geekiest phone on the planet.
to keep it real, I included some of the very few points the Storm was better at.
you seen where I'm going. Compare apples to apples please and if you title your post "reality" check: stay real.
I'm not an iPhone fan, btw. - I prefer the Touch HD and my Bold.
