Blackberry Storm

Using Nokia N95 8GB and thought it to be pretty resonable , tried the N96 and handed it back within a week .... In the interim, before Apple gets 32GB and Java and seeing as I have the company account with Vodaphone, I thought I'd give one of these fellas a go ,.. anyone else been tempted, and what do you think ?

Save me carrying an ipod about too .. the N96 would do 32 GB if expanded with a micro sd, but I just couldnt wait for the damn thing to work

if you are on Orange get the HTC touch HD - it's basically an Ipaq the same size as an Iphone but with a bigger screen - can run tom tom etc and all sorts of pocket pc apps.

It's what I am about to get.

Swapped this morning from an 8310 to the new Storm, very impressed so far.

I thought the N96 was a reasonable mobile, what problems did you have?

Its as slow as a week in the jail , its processor is a slower one than the N95 that it replaced ... and it runs more apps Plus its keyboard(s) is tacky, and nowhere near as positive as the N95 8GB I thought. Plus mine had some software bugs, one of which was that the ringer wouldnt always ring Just what you want eh ?, my provider wanted 200 off me to change to it too,.. now they are giving em away on contract I see
