I have been a "Crackberry" for years...It is so bad that I have a second Blackberry in waiting in case my first one needs fixing...
However, I have been going back and forth over the IPhone or the Blackberry Storm (both are the cool touch screen models). While I have really enjoyed my Blackberry Bold, it is not touchscreen and just does not seem to be as cool as a cool techie like me should be using....but here is my reasoning:
I send a lot of text messages, emails, SMS's and have even been known to Blog and write articles on my Blackberry Bold. I tried to write an email on a friends IPhone when they first came out. I found it really hard to do and even though I was encouraged that there was a training period for you to establish a bond, I found myself spending more time in spellcheck...I have had some REALTOR friends who have gone to the IPhone or Storm only to come back a few weeks later. Surfers love them but Texters are frustrated.
The visuals on the IPhone and the Storm cannot be beat and the coolness is great. I guess I will have to wait for the next iteration which will probably be a combination or Touchscreen and Qwerty keyboard. At the rate of Technology, that should be soon.
IPhone and Storms users, feel free to convince me by adding comments below:
