Comments on: Latest BlackBerry: A Storm but not a killer http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/11/20/latest-blackberry-a-storm-but-not-a-killer/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Rohit Akhauri http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/11/20/latest-blackberry-a-storm-but-not-a-killer/#comment-353934 Sun, 23 Nov 2008 21:02:34 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=13033#comment-353934 Storm’s Visual display is way behind to iphone.
BlackBerry Storm is only capable of displaying up to 65,536 colors, much short of the iPhone’s 262,144 colors. You’ll notice the stark difference in contrast of colors and their gradient when browsing the web like ESPN sports photos, CNN, BBC and the high quality photos imported from your PC.

The navigation of Storm lags too much.When you flick through touch screen you clearly feel its a cheap imitation of elegant iPhone. iPhone’s pinch Zoom is amazing.
Storm just brags about MMS. Who needs this obsolete feature when you can do live photo streaming on an iPhone? And email photo with one click.

You can access to internet on iPhone even in Air Plane coz planes are now offering Wi-Fi and iPhone is perfect for that it catches wi-fi even being on Airplane mode.
Storm doesn’t have Wi-Fi so it lacks all the VOIP feature which has become a must have today.
Apart from all these features, there is one more reason why iPhone is way better than any other phone, because its an iPhone.

As for features it seems to trounce the iPhone but still isn’t getting as many good reviews, I guess its all about looks and not substance. For a First Gen phone it totally kils the first gen iPhone. I am sure the second Gen will even up the anti. Good first effort!

With VZ you have to pay for the data plan anyway, which means you have internet access. Where are you going to be that has a wifi signal, but no signal for internet????

How can you even compare it to the iphone except that they both have touch screens. This phone is going to crush the iphone.
