Default What storm 1 and 2 are two forums?

Please Login to Remove!

Unlike Bold 1 and Bold 2 have different forums, why Storm 2 does not have its own forum? Most of the discussions on the Storm 2 do not pertain to the Storm 1, and vice verse.

because the forum states "9500" series.

Now let me ask you...what are the model numbers of the storm 1 and the storm 2?

I look at this from a more pragmatic angle. I would ask you a question too. Do you think it will be more user friendly to have two separate forums?

To answer your question, 9530 and 9550 for the CDMA versions. But that alone is not a good reason to keep these two phones in the same forums.

And, in theory all 9xxx models can be the 9000 series, hence they can all be in the same forum, namely the 9000 series forum. Ok, ok, just joking. I'm going too far

I think at least two sub-forums should be created to better serve the members.

It's been discussed among the moderators, and for now it will remain as it is. Right now there's not enough difference in the four 95xx devices to merit separate forums.

There's great difference in the 9000 bold and 9630, 9700

I agree. There are some differences but both run basically the same OS and the hardware is very similar.

I agree. RIM designated the storm 2 within the same model series.

And having too many forum categories can be a huge cluster. Breaking them down too much is a little anal, and would prob lead to a lot of unused sections.
