"Nice phone - a bit 'fussy' tremendous potential"

The good: Nice screen, speaker, call quality, network speed, email client, style, desktop software.

The bad: Memory issues! Sluggish performance, limited application memory, low-quality app world apps

Summary: This is a good phone and has tremendous potential, however it has some serious issues that RIM needs to fix NOW! The App World is near-worthless as the blackberry is severely limited in it's application-dedicated memory. This memory cannot be allocated to your expandable microSD card. Big mistake! Also it has memory leakage issues that will have your system slowing to a crawl by the end of the day. I had to hunt on some forums to find workable solutions.. some aftermarket memory-sweeping apps and an overnight auto-reset app have improved my daily experience substantially..

I am not going to say I 'hate' this phone. It has serious issues, but I think they could be resolved easily by a firmware update.. don't forget the iPhone OS was a work in progress as well..

The media player is great.. great call quality, the click screen is easy to use, slower than the iphone, but I find my accuracy is better..

RIM fix the memory issues so we can have a perfect phone!!

There’s a lot to like about the Storm and with every new form factor there’s also a lot to learn. Read: be prepared to invest a good week to really master the Storm. That said, the Storm is a good looking device and has many features found on the BlackBerry Bold . If you want a slick looking touchscreen smartphone that has a solid media player, great MP3... more...
