Both platforms are built around the OpenGL 1.1 architecture however, so functionally are capable of the same renders. Time will tell in the application market if content developers use this for the Storm. It pretty my comes down to how popular RIM can keep the platform, and if the nice people making us games decide to program specifically for the Storm, or keep things broad support for newer devices.
I don't know of anyone that has built a real benchmark tool that can be run on both devices yet to really test it however. But the Storm's processor clocking in at 156% faster than the iPhone would "seem" to give Blackberry a stiff edge.
Like I said, time will tell. Once the Blackberry App Store goes live, I'm sure we'll see a lot more content, and have a lot more fun with our phones/fingertips.
