Ten reasons to buy the BlackBerry Storm over the iPhone 3G
With the BlackBerry Storm arriving in the UK on Vodafone tomorrow (14th November), I decided to give you the top ten reasons why to buy the Storm over the Apple iPhone, however the choice is ultimately yours, which one will you go for?
1. it has a 3.2 megapixel camera which also has an inbuilt flash (beats T-Mobile G1 and iPhone) 2. the BlackBerry Storm has a Removable battery (iPhone doesn’t) 3. you get a 3.5mm Stereo input which allows you to buy better quality earphones, (the T-Mobile G1 lacks this option) 4. The Storm packs a mighty screen boasting 12.5 percent more picture element than the Apple iPhone, this will give you better clarity in your viewing experience, plus the screen is a more traditional viewing shape than the iPhone with a 4:3 ratio compared with the iPhone 9:6 ratio. 5. you can use your Storm as a USB dongle broadband modem for your laptop as standalone (Apple iPhone doesn’t allow this service at the moment).
6. The BlackBerry Storm supports Microsoft’s WMV, WMA/WMA ProPlus which iPhone and Android doesn’t support plus a whole host of other video and audio file formats. 7. you get a 1GB microSD card with your Storm but you can also expand it up to 16GB. (This puts it on a level footing with its competitors) 8. The Storm supports backend Email Solutions including Triple DES encryption and AES for all security minded users. 9. you can you the MMS (Multimedia Messaging System) feature on the BlackBerry Storm which allows you to send messages via text without being connected wirelessly, iPhone does not support this. 10. The Storm has a QWERTY keyboard with a great technology called Clickthrough, which gives you the feeling of actually typing on a real keyboard with sound and touch, this feature will allow you to type much faster than on the iPhone.
