Default WOW! Storm 2(.78) has half the SAR levels of BB Curve(1.51)

Please Login to Remove!

I found this surprising that the blackberry's are nearly %40 of the top cell phones in the US with the highest SAR levels(Blog: Suprise Storm has much less SAR levels than the Blackberry Curve)

the Storm 2 at .78 and BB curve at 1.51... Why are the SAR levels so high? They nearly reach the maximum allowed by the FCC at 1.6..???

I prefer the keyboard(shortcuts) but will take another long look at the Storm 2.

A bluetooth headset or a wired headset make these SAR studies moot, no?

I wonder if the Bluetooth radio has ever been checked? Having that thing in your ear has to be a problem. I realize it may have a lower transmitter power but it's still a radio.
Anyone know?

Well that's if you have a 'approved holster' "The highest reported SAR value for this BlackBerry device when clipped on a belt, in a Research
In Motion approved holster equipped with an integrated belt clip, is outlined below. Carrying
solutions, including RIM approved carrying solutions and carrying solutions not approved by
RIM, that do not come equipped with an integrated belt clip SHOULD NOT be worn or carried
on the body. For more information regarding the wearing or carrying of this BlackBerry device
without using a RIM approved carrying solution equipped with an integrated belt clip, see the
Holster information in the "Additional safety guidelines" section of this document."
http://docs.blackberry.com/en/smartp...rtphone-US.pdf

according to RIM's safety manual

there're precautions to take but still the SAR level's are abnormally high.. haven't most of the phones in the top 10 of the the 20 phones in the US with the highest SAR levels isn't a good sign...

they did well with the storm.. not sure what the difference is... maybe materials for the screen
