    Re: BB Storm

    I evaluated one for my work and I found it to be somewhat clunky. The keyboard was not as easy to use as they want to make it sound and the one I had was amazing slow.

    I think they still have issues to figure out with it as it the case with most 1st gen models.

    Re: BB Storm

    I have one. I enjoy it for the most part. The Camera isn't great which I thought it would be since is is 3.2 megapixels. Takes awhile to shoot.

    Typing is ok but has taken getting use to. It is easier in the panaromic full Qwerty keyboard.

    There have been two or three operating system updates that have sped it up dramatically.

    The internet is great on it, very similar to the Iphone. Speed of connection is very good as well.

    Music player and video player are the best of any phone I have had. With the 8 Gig memory card included it is quite a bit of storage right off of the bat.

    There are some small things that I like a lot like when you are texting with someone you can view the whole text history in each text you receive. Even if it has been two days. Some of the games are fun. Lots of applications you can buy for it which is nice.

    Did this come with the ability to freeze time and talk to the camera?

    Completely agree...have had mine for 2 weeks now.

    Too add to CyGuy - the camera quality is awesome. The pics look great for a phone camera. But the time it takes to snap a picture is ridiculous. You're only going to use it for still things - meaning, don't try to photograph a moving object because you'll probably never get it going by you :)

    I have actually found typing to be very easy to pick up. The typing feels SO much better than the iPhone touch screen. To feel it click plus the highlighting of the letters you're hovering over make errors very minimal, whether it's full qwerty or multi-tap. Plus the word suggestion is pretty great too.

    Internet is great. Full internet, not mobile websites like other phones. Works fast.

    I also enjoy the media player.

    And with work, it's been great getting it sync'd up with outlook and all of my stuff there.

    There have been updates to the phone, which have sped up most of the "lag" issues that were there the first week the phone was on the market. And there are a few other bugs that you can hear about if you go to some blackberry forums, but all in all the phone has been everything i hoped for and expected.
