I don't understand why people are so concerned with comparison and X phone killing Y phone. If you're not happy with one device, get a different one.
Maybe it's a touchscreen thing. I personally can't stand touchscreens so I'm going to step back and away from this thread now.

I think the main reason Touch works for the Apples is Multi-Touch which actually provides a feature that cannot be achieved without a touchscreen.. The Storm on the other hand is a trackball phone with no trackball and no advantage.

There's no one here (in their right mind anyway) that would try favorably comparing the Storm's browser with Safari. I can find plenty of things about my Storm that I like better than the iPhone though.

- except that I think the BB browser is better than Safari
If the depressing news about the CPU in another thread is correct then I really think it's time we all accepted we've been sold a lemon and it's not going to get any better than this

By the time AT&T got it, the Bold may have finished working out its teething issues. But quite obviously, it had them as well.
You conjecture on why there are so many releases show that you don't know anything about beta processes.
Safe bet that the median age among iPhone users is lower than that of the Storm, so your 'kids' comment is off mark
The manufacturing plant failing to properly seal the screen doesn't indicate a design flaw. I have a dustless Storm from 11/22. As do others.
Being able to frequently do a side by side comparison with an iPhone 3g (my gf's phone), it does not kill the Storm in every possible way except email. Unless you count low signal strength, connectivity issues, dropped calls and forced reboots (mine has had 1 to date) among the different means of phonacide. And 2 blocks from U. Penn's main campus in Philadelphia hardly counts as rural.
Did I miss anything? Or do I have to delve into the history of the iPhone too?
You may not be a iPhone fanboi (debateable but I'll take your word on it). But you definately don't like the Storm. That's your perogative. Villifying it or glorifying the iPhone does not alter the fact:
NO PHONE IS PERFECT

It's not that I don't like the storm, it's that I hate it's glaring deficiencies. Yes, there is a hardware defect whether you want to admit of or not. Business cards, foam seals, dust,loosening screws are all problems with this phone. Maybe you have that 1 storm in 100 that doesn't but I doubt it.
I love blackberry and it is my phone of choice for business use. RIM developed the storm to get in on the touchscreen wave and they failed miserably IMO. It's just my opinion and this being the rants and raves forum I choose to rant.

I don't have a business card behind my battery. My foam seals are fine and I have no dust. I didn't have to utilize the Torx screw trick. My phone has been just fine.
The only problem? Okay, so yeah, my screen is slightly more difficult to press where the spacebar is in portrait mode. Is it enough to affect typing? No. Affect usage? No. Affect navigation? No. Certainly not enough to warrant replacement.
If you hang out here long enough, you'll get to witness all kinds of OCD that people use to convince themselves they need a replacement.

The fact that the iphone needs an app to allow you to type emails while in landscape in clearly demonstrates its not for business. If you need to be entertained, get an iphone. I have too much work to get done and BlackBerry has my back.
