    I think its pathetic that Verizon and Rim pushed the Storm as a cutting edge phone, released it with a buggy OS and now all its early adopters are scrambling to patch together their own hybrid OS's just to try to make it into some semblance of what it should have been on the day it was released.

    There is no hope that the Storm will ever have advanced NEW features. For NEW features they'll expect you suckers to buy a Storm 2!

    Thankfully the Palm Pre will be here next month. and without a doubt the PRE will be the cutting edge. The Storm is the trailing edge of mediocrity.

    No, no, no....that's not a Storm. A Storm is the thing I use to conduct business, check email, call my lovely wife, text my Mom, messenger my daughter, take pics of beautiful scenery, video my little boy hitting his golf ball, and listen to my tunes (see avatar).

    Oh yea, and post comments in this forum sittin on the pot

    The Storm is the thing I use every day to check for an official OS upgrade from Verizon.

    My TREO 700p is the thing I use every day to "conduct business, check e-mail, call my lovely wife, text my Mom, messenger my daughter, takes pics of beautiful scenery, video my boy, listen to my tunes, watch live TV on Orb, change the channels on my TV set, play chess, play Atari ST games, watch YouTube, type messages with one hand, navigate while driving, run programs from its SD card, move photos from my digital camera's SD card into my phone,
    Twitter my followers, check my calendar, sync my calendar to Google, watch full length movies from my SD card, back up my entire phone and PDA to SD disk, back up my phone to the web via Backup Buddy.net, play Scrabble, surf the net with Opera Mini or Blazer, and play Warfare, Inc.
    and I can do most of those things reliably with just one hand!

    It is just a cell phone! The storm is a device that replaced a pocket notebook and pencil and a handfull of quarters for a pay phone. If anyone who constantly complains about it would just remember that we all had beepers as little as 10 yrs ago or a nokia cell phone that was big bulky and only made calls.

    Maybe you'd be happy with a Razr. But I expect my SMARTphone to be a whole lot more than "just a cell phone." Especially when my ancient Treo 700p can still run rings around the Storm in most areas. I am so ready for the Pre!

    And what happens if the Pre gets launched with just as many odd bugs? It is a whole new OS Palm created after all. It'll just keep going in circles...

    i am not unhappy with my storm...but if it is slow or quirky i do not allow it to make me insane the way that other posters have written about. i just wish that everyone would just step back, take a breath and realize the power we have in the palm of our hands.

    No way of knowing until June, but so far there hasn't been even a hint of the Pre or WebOS being "Pre"-mature.

    The Storm is what causes these people that HATE the darn thing so much that they hang in the Storm threads and have the Storm consume them as they attempt to carry on a regular day w/ whatever device they so choose. It's funny to me how much of a stir in their lives its caused as they continue to spend countless minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years talking about the darn thing. With so much hate the Storm is garnishing it must be doing something right. Catch ya on the rant boards.. that's a guarantee.. pathetic. LOL!!!!!

    Possibly the most controversial device ever released by a smartphone company. That is calling RIM a smartphone company, NOT calling the Storm a smartphone of course

    As a former Treo user, I would was thinking about getting one for personal use. That is until I saw the specs and the cheap design.
