Simple question. Will the lack of WiFi in the Storm stop you from buying one?
I've been pretty keen to see most of the latest gen phones coming out with WiFi since I live in a residential area of Toronto near the water that doesn't get the strongest cell coverage and no one is signing up to put a cell tower in their backyard. Bell Mobility will be getting the Storm and not the Bold but the Storm is lacking WiFi and this may have me switching carriers.
I will not buy it since we do not have 3G coverage here in India and I use WIFI most of the time at office and at work.
So no Storm for me. I wonder what were they thinking when they decided to exclude WIFI in a iphone comparable device?

Here in Northern California, Verizon's EV-DO is everywhere. In fact, I switched from AT&T because VZW was the only provider who could give me an uninterrupted 3G data connection on my once-a-week Amtrak commute from Sacramento to the San Francisco Bay Area. The Storm's Rev. A capability is icing on the cake. So, no, the lack of Wi-Fi capability will not stop me in the least from being among the first to purchase it.
WiFi is what my laptop is for... Although, with T-Mobile you can use WiFi for calling which would help out at my house which has poor cell coverage, plus the Wifi calls are free. But thats the only major reason I see for wifi on my phone, and of course TMobile isn't going to carry the storm so it doesn't really matter.
