Last time we heard, the BlackBerry Storm 3 was speculated to be given the codename “Monaco” and that it was potentially going to be the first 4G smartphone from RIM's camp. However, it now appears as...

This is mediocre thing going to launch in SEPTEMBER?! Was that a misprint? Unless it's $350 unlocked (not subsidized by a carrier) it will be a total joke. How many dual-core phones will be on the market by September? How many shooting video in 1080p? How many with larger screens with higher resolutions, brighter, thinner, more power efficient, color depth, increased subpixels, etc.? How many phones have those screens now? How many already have 1gb of RAM now? A 5mp camera? Seriously?! Nokia has had a 12megapixel camera for months already? Why only Bluetooth 3.0? Only tri-band UMTS by Q4? Nokia has many models with PENTA-band UMTS and HSPA+. What about LTE? By dragging their feet, RIMM will become the next Nokia...
On a side note--the UMA and multi-frequency WiFi specs look decent.

I had the storm 1, my excuses before for having a BlackBerry is its for smart people but behind the scene I'm miserable with the storm 1. I have nothing but bad experience with BlackBerry devices, some guy said wp7 will fail??? I doubt that, for a beta release its already better than the fragmented Android os. I won't say anything about the webios iPhone because we all know its the best out there. I'm on a hd7 right now and for all the wp7 haters,,, own one without hacking the phone!

Everybody is on the Android banwagon right now but that is merely because its the "newest and coolest" operating system. There are several problems with it:

1) Fragmentation
2) Device is Oudated faster than Blackberry (you'll always be using an out of date software/hardware on an Android device...which leads to more fragmentation)
3) Not a single software update has successfully gone through that hasn't imploded a ton of devices. Every time an update is released, it is a massive call driver for ALL the providers.

There are other personal things about Android I don't prefer such as the fact that you need to download FAR too many applications for your device to become workable if you ask me. There are no simple solution for things that seem like common sense (Sync with Outlook?). Android offers a better web experience than Blackberry for sure, but Blackberry is a superior messaging device.
