REVIEW: Blackberry Storm Posted by Chris Hardwick on November 25, 2008 Share: Twitter Facebook Google+ Reddit Email I wanted so much to like this phone… Tags Blackberry, phone, Review Comments conedude13 says: December 20, 2008 at 11:02 am no wifi on the verizon network; sounds up to par for them. i got to have hands on with this also at costco and really didn’t like the scrolling through the apps; you had no sense of location in the app menu when you were doing it. and i really didn’t like the need to poke then press on something to open it up, or just press harder on it. seems a bit counter intuitive for something called a “touch screen”. getting a new phone at the end of next summer and so far it seems to be the iPhone still.

And now for a nice bit of nostalgia… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiUcVp6i1tM&feature=related Scott says: November 26, 2008 at 12:08 pm gah! … just realized you linked to http://wireandtwine.com/ Thanks! ^_^ Scott says: November 26, 2008 at 12:06 pm Yes, please Chris tell us where we can get that awesome shirt!

As of now, though, it’s just not that strong. karate: wireandtwine.com regularkarate says: November 26, 2008 at 8:04 am I want that shirt. I used to want to make it, but someone took care of it for me… where did you get it? SpikeDelight says: November 25, 2008 at 8:18 pm Hey I was wondering, would the ‘laggy menus and accelerometer’ be able to be fixed in a firmware update? I’ve used the phone a fair amount and I have to say it is noticeable, but it’s not like it’s inconsistent (as an example there’s a difference between a game consistently running at 25 FPS and one that’s at 60 but then it dips lower) and overall I enjoyed using it. It would be nice for the Blackberry to get on that though, and maybe add a ‘predictive typing’ thing like the iPhone.
