Our sister site, MobileRoar.com, had the opportunity to get a hands on look at the BlackBerry Storm today. There is no doubt that the T-Mobile G1, BlackBerry Storm and iPhone look poised to be the 3 hottest phones of the holiday season… lucky for us then that they were able to snag a picture of the 3 devices back-to-back-to-back!
The G1 is definitely a bit taller and narrower, but I love the way it feels and fits into my pocket. That being said, I don’t want to discredit the BlackBerry Storm which was the main purpose of the MobileRoar article. The touchscreen button (called SurePress technology) is the number one reason they said, “the BlackBerry Storm absolutely ROCKS!”
The article also suggests that the BlackBerry Storm might keep potential VZW customers from leaving for T-Mobile and the G1. Are you facing this predicament? What’s your take?
But these days, as the article states, its “all about the apps”… and while Verizon is offering Storm owners access to the all new VZAppZone, it simply won’t be able to measure up in any way, shape or form to what the Android Market can and will become.
Here is a pic of only the BlackBerry Storm next to the T-Mobile G1:
So how do the devices actually stack up? The G1 and iPhone both get a ton of bonus points for having WiFi and a ridiculous amount of apps (even if upcoming) while the iPhone and Storm get brownie points for the 3.5mm headphone jack. But the G1 and the Storm have 3.2MP cameras to the iPhone’s 2MP camera.
Lets not argue over the details… lets just enjoy a nice side by side comparison of two of the year’s coolest phone’s sitting next to eachother on a landmark day for the mobile industry. The BlackBerry Storm touchscreen seems nothing short of revolutionary and MobileRoarers had nothing but great things to Roar about it.
So… who can finally convince Verizon to man up offer its customers an Android Phone with SurePress technology?. That, ladies and gentlemen… THAT would be a great day for many, many people.
