Recently my work mobile smartphone went to crap, probably because it was running on Microsoft Windows Mobile or some other brilliant OS they conjured up in the great Northwest. I previously had a Palm Treo so I thought about going back to that family. I however opted to go with Blackberry this time.
OK, my first thought was to go with Apple's iPhone. But you know, even though it is for work, I do enjoy actually being able to talk on it and AT&T has never been my friend. Staying on Verizon Wireless, I was left with few options. I decided on one of their older Blackberry World phones. However, they decided to ship me the Blackberry Storm instead for the same price. What a deal, I thought.
When I initially received it, I immediately disliked it. It's heavier than the Motorola Q that I had been using and if memory serves me right, it seems close in weight to the Palm Treo 650 I had before that. Then the touchscreen felt wrong. You really have to put physical pressure on the screen. I have an iPod Touch at home and that works like a charm. Touchscreen there means brushing the screen. Not on the Storm.
