    My Storm mini review *pics*

    So I was able to play with the Storm today. It was not the final software because the final is not done yet. It was fully functional except for V-Cast and a few applications not running smoothly.

    The screen is NICE. The best way i can describe it is as follows, as your finger touches it, it highlights things, but does not select them or launch programs, it only selects items when you are touching and push the screen in. The "click" is actually the screen moving. The whole screen is like one big button that physically pushes in. Works well.

    Interface is nice, simple, easy. Browser is nice.

    Confirmed it does come packages with an 8GB MicroSD.







    The third pic is with it in a dock (sold seperatly) that turns it into an alarm clock.

    I also got to play with the VZW Samsung Onmia

    m.vcast.com works on other BB's so I'm sure that it will on the storm as well. That will have to tide us over until they get the kinks out of the VCast BB App :-)

    * Bold or Storm. Bold or Storm . . . MEH, one of each for the best of both words!
    * My iPod is a Blackberry STORM ;-)
    * The Blackberry Storm 9530 (Verizon) DOES NOT have WiFi -- PERIOD! If that's a deal breaker for you then don't get the phone.
    * Confused about Blackberry voice and data plans?

    Exactly. There is an icon to launch a vcast program but like i said its not functional on the current model and they dont anticipate it being ready for launch which ''we are guessing is the 23rd''

    They've said all along that vcast will be available post launch, my guess is within the first month or two of release it'll become available.

    Have you tried the gps with bb maps? Also can you go to google.com/gmm to see if they have google maps readily available for us, and also if the gps works for that as well. Of course only if you still had access to the storms. Thanks I would appreciate it.

    I just love the alarm clock feature!

    Cool idea...I hate having to deal w/the clocks in hotels when I travel, usually just unplug them so I don't get woken up at 4:00 AM by some other person's left-over alarm.

    Hopefully simple to use, looks elegant, and should have excellent utility.
