Here’s why he prefers the iPhone

1. It’s now second-generation
(fail/this is RIMs 26s phone)
2. Built-in memory
(fail/storm has 1g internal and can add 16gb external
3. iTunes App Store
(fail/only a plus if you were stupid enough to buy an ipod)
4. iTunes integration
(Fail/ only a plus if you are planing to be a prisoner to apple)
5. Full QWERY (virtual) keyboard
(fail/storm has a Full QWERY (virtual) keyboard in landscape mode)
6. Wi-Fi support
(pass/WTF! no Wi-Fi on a smartphone if your in EU get the HTC HD)
7. iPod media player
(fail/just an mp3 player app for stupid people)
8. Safari browser
(fail/ stopped being the best mobile browser long ago orpera and skyfire current best)

then again whatever floats his boat.

2. Built-in memory
(fail/storm has 1g internal and can add 16gb external - FAIL

Iphone has up to 16gb Internal Memory, Your not paying for the phone then extra for memory.

3.iTunes App Store
(fail/only a plus if you were stupid enough to buy an ipod)- FAIL

Has alot of FREE fun/usefull apps that only add to your iphone experience.

4.iTunes integration
(Fail/ only a plus if you are planing to be a prisoner to apple)- FAIL

Erm, like...what? i have Itunes, not a prisoner!

5.Full QWERY (virtual) keyboard
(fail/storm has a Full QWERY (virtual) keyboard in landscape mode) - FAIL

Dont have to be in landscape mode, although optional. also features multi-touch so can select more than one thing at a time(type faster).

7. iPod media player
(fail/just an mp3 player app for stupid people) -FAIL

Very easy and efficient to use, doesnt have horrible pointless waves of menus that take like 5 seconds to load, the UI is why ipods are so popular.

Safari browser
(fail/ stopped being the best mobile browser long ago orpera and skyfire current best)

in your opinion (which by the way, fails!)

you got free wi-fi at any ATT hotspot... so wi-fi is plus with iphone.

2# you should have a micro SD maybe not a 16gb but you probably have one. being stuck with the iphones 16gb isn't a good thing. All new smartphones (that i have see) have compatibility with 16gb cards. Most people will agree that have this makes it easier to share your stuff whether it's songs or pdf but i guess apple doesn't want you to shear so it makes sens that the i phone doesn't have it.

3# my mistake i didn't see apps store just itunes store.
Now that you mantion it most OSs have some sort of free apps and if they don't we make them free.... (wink wink hint hint)

4# you payed for the songs, can't use them anywhere else but apple hardware. If this is true then your a prisoner to apple. (ask for further explanation you'll probably need it)

5# did you just say that you use two keys at the exact same time when you type?
Bigger keys when in portrait mode full QWERTY when in landscape. Now is not having these things a good thing?(WTF with typo there is other types of keyboards but there is only one that is "full," the QWERTY one.)

6# i guess we agree on this to huh?

7# it's only 5secs. All I'm saying is that this is not a plus unless your a retard that needs it. btw the best way add simplicity is by reducing functionality which apple dose do but since their target is retarded people and the blind sheep that don't care it goes unnoticed.

8# lol, try them out especially skyfire or just youtube it http://www.youtube.com/watc... then again ignorance is bliss

there is nothing wrong with having opinions and likes, disagrees, etc. It's all good having discussions or whatever. But, you need to chill calling folks retarded bro. That's a tad offensive dude :\

Btw: That skyfire looks pretty dope, thanks for the info. But seriously bro, cool off with insulting everybody.

ITS HACKED SO THE POSSIBILITIES AND LIFE GO FAR.

Senbo3315d ago (Edited 3315d ago )

i guess you didn't know that most phones don't need to get hacked to have the same functionality as a jailbreak take a look at HTC touch HD running Sony Ericsson XPERIA panels (can't see why you would want to do that) http://www.youtube.com/watc... no hacking just installing

oops wrong reply

DJ3315d ago (Edited 3315d ago )

Between getting a free phone upgrade and iPod Touch (verizon user right now), or just getting the Blackberry Storm. The lack of wi-fi is really bad, but the tactile feedback screen may be more important.

The fact that Storm only comes with 1GB of memory is pretty lame though.

dericb113315d ago

Well here is a big Guarantee that Blackberry has. The user base is huge. Most business people will buy it for name alone. This will give it a big user base. I won't say Iphone sized but I will say one big enough to add apps to keep up just a little with the Apple Apps. Not only that its not a GSM phone but CDMA(I think so don't burn me), so they have a really untouched market in terms of people who never got a touchscreen smartphone.
