Default BB Storm Vs BB 8900

Please Login to Remove!

For those who had used a BB Storm and BB 8900.

Which would you prefer? Beside the 3G & 2G difference, i personally prefer the 8900.

I tried the Storm for day and return to store for refund. Typing a email is a pain.

The whole navigation for Storm is really very different and would need SOME time to get used to it.

I think Storm is a whole new series from BB which hopes to copy iphone.

I don't think they were TRYING to copy the iphone, I think they saw the iphone as a consumer blockbuster and saw that the design of an all screen device rocked. So they made one, too. That's good for a company to diversify. I think the BB Storm is superior to the Apple iPhone.

Well, going back to your remark: It seems that you've already decided if you've already returned your storm... Right?

Unless they could come out with something more user-friendly such as full qwerty keyboard with spacing between keys and making sure the screen do not go side and up often. ;)

I think some of our attitudes about the Storm may change when the next generation touchscreen comes out whenever that may be

Hopefully. Gues what, when i first got the Storm, i was so excited. But when i try to type an email, what a pain. Imagine typing a email takes more than 5 mins. The screen keeps switching there and fro and the wording keeps getting incorrect.
