      Blackberry Storm is the touch-screen version of the Blackberry smart phones. It’s called the iphone killer. I have only used this Storm 9500 model for about 6 months because I did not think it was good enough to ‘kill’ the iphones.

      First of all, the internal ram is very low which makes the phone run very slow. Compared to iphone 3G (3GS was not released at the time), iphone was very much smoother and with better graphic display as well. When you surt the internet, after switching a couple of times from website to another, the phone will

      go hang, it takes a long time to load the page or sometimes after waiting for some time, it shows you an error message. You will have to reboot the phone for it to be working again. Blackberry users should know how long it takes to turn on the phones, it usually takes longer than a minute.

      Secondly, the camera is only 2 Megapixels when other brands of mobile phones have already gone up to 5 or even 8 megapixels. The photos taken are not clear. It doesn’t have a zoom feature, so you have to take photos ...

      • close up.

        Thirdly, no WIFI feature. Again, now you can hardly find in the market a newly released mobile phone wihout WIFI feature, let’s not talk about those cheap phones. I mean any good quality phones in the market have this feature in them. The service providers in many countries do not offer unlimited data usage plans, which makes it very costly if you surf the internet very oftenly. With a WIFI feature, at least you can save up some data usage if you surt the net at places where WIFI services are available like Starbucks Coffee.

        Lastly, it

        costs a fee to get some good softwares or programmes installed on the phone, not only Blackberry Storm but also other Blackberry phones. And, like I said before, the internal ram is too low. If you installed many softwares it will make the phone even slower.

        Personally, I wouldn’t recommend this phone to anyone. Storm 2 is in the market now. I had a chance to play with it for a while and find that it’s very much better. They have increased the rams and also used a better processor so it is so much smoother than 9500.
