I had the orig storm for a year also and had no problems.

And I'm STILL rocking my Storm 1 with no issues! Until Droid X comes out that is...

If they get rid of the click screen and make it like 4.0 inches

I hope not. I love my Storm 2, and the clickable screen is killer. I know a lot of people hate it, but for me that was the selling point. I'll be honest though, I do like my Droid UI much better. But if they can make 6.0 work and bring a little more to the appworld, I'll check it out.

They ARE working on a new OS that is specifically for touchscreen phones. Saw it at a Verizon agent fair last month. But they were pretty mum on the hardware.

I will 100% not buy another Blackberry after using a the Droid phones, if this is VZW's LTE Launch phone, I will be a little dissapointed.

I think Blackberry has a better email setup.

I hope blackberry has complete different redesign this time. I don't know anyone happy with the storm, and all of those people are upgrading to Android phones Verizon has to offer. There really is no comparison!

I love my Storm2 9550. Portrait with SureType...super smooth. Anyway, I'm glad there are a few new rumors about the Storm line-up, I'm a fan.

one more I guess, and you know if they get it right it will be nice

in my opinion there was nothing wrong with the previous ones.

Blackberry needs a touchscreen phone to get in the game with android and iPhone they got business on lock but their lacking fun to use touchscreen hopefully they'll have a big hit with this one the first true 4g device sorry sprint that's the way I see it

Your view of 4G is very short-sighted, bet the new tag line is true to you too.

your right lte is sooo much better and faster then wimax i cant wait until i only have to wait 0.01 seconds for my page to load instead of 0.02 seconds i really dont have that extra time to waste in my super fast paced life
19. droidman (Posts: 106; Member since: 17 Mar 2010)
I never said wimax sucked its not true 4g even sprint said they may upgrade lte in the future don't why you were you insulted by what I said I'm sure you have an evo which better than what I have
21. pattypatterson (Posts: 48; Member since: 28 May 2010)
all im sayin is once the speeds are wimax and faster there is no noticeable difference on a phone maybe on a computer but not on a phone
22. DonLouie (Posts: 594; Member since: 22 Dec 2008)
If WiMax isn't true 4G then neither is LTE. They are both the next generation in mobile tech, hence 4G. Sprint/Clear is covering the bases by keeping the LTE option available, it's not a declaration that WiMax isn't 4G.

Ok, Here is the deal. I only use the Blackberry in the IT environment. I own a Blackberry storm, XV6800, Touch Pro, and a Droid; ofcourse the Droid being the current activated handset. However alot of companies are going windows just because of the ease of integration and less cost factor. I dream of the day android could become a viable buisness option. As far as blackberry being anything other then a glorified e-mail machine; I cannot support the blackberry as a mainstream handset. I must say; at least RIM is trying but just can't seam to grasp what is going on out there. I personally will not be getting a storm 3, now lets talk about the droid x.

I stopped reading after seeing "IT" and "XV6800" in the same breath as your opinion became irrelvant after that. That phone is god-awful.

I loved the phone, considering back then not much was out to speak of on the Verizon network. and as far as my profession goes. I sorry your a hater for an IT guy. i'm proud to be a Tech guy and i'm not going to let anyone rain on my parade for being an IT guy.

really think RIM should quit while they're ahead with the Storm
