    This is the worst phone i have ever had!!
    If i could get decent O2 signal round here id def be tempted by the Iphone, but think this Blackberry may be what i go for, i cant find many reviews on it though. My concerns are drunken txting with touch screen!!

    ive had a viewty for around a year now .. just got a replacement as dust got behind the screen (common fault apparently) anyway i started getting realy annoyed with it before i got it replaced
    but during the 2 weeks wher o2 lost it and got me a new one. i realy missed it

    i gotta say i love touch screen phones!!!

    unless lg are gonna bring out something else im gonna go for the renoir

    blackberry used to be really good with their phones .. proper business phones
    but i think their trying to go mainstream with phone
    still has the potential to be really good tho

    Blackberry Storm is a cool phone, but lacks wifi capability which will severly hinder it's chances on the consumer market.

    The quality of the screen is amazing and the touch screen actually depresses. Havent tried web browsing on it, but if it is anything to go by past blackberry's it is likely to be poor.

    The iPhone is so succesful due to its intuative OS Mat, unless Nokia can produce something as easy and cool to use then it will just be another iPhone wannabe

    the clickable screen is a good concept, and something different from the norm, as a concept that is, it is a lot better than some of the other touch screen phones viewty etc but no where near as responsive as the iphone, i've got both, and for my personal phone i use a blackberry Bold (this is a good phone)

    the OS on the iphone cannot be beaten in my opinion


    As it is right now, the storm is all show, no poke ime, a lot of hype and marketing, but it's not as good as they make out.


    Get a Bold mate! lol

    T3 - who are so pro apple its unbeleivable actually think the Nokia Tube will kick the iphone (in its latest guise) arse.

    Some of the comparisions:

    Screen:

    tube - 3.2'', but with a higher res 640x360
    ipone - 3.5 with a res 480x320


    Connectivity:

    tube 3G, WiFi and you can view flash sites
    iphone - 3G wifi but no flash access


    Music:

    tube- Download up to 2 million tunes for a one of fee
    iphone - Acees to itunes tracks start at 79p


    Memory:

    tube -expandable up to 24GB with microSD
    iphone - upto 16GB


    Camera:

    tube - 3.2mp with video
    iphone - 2mp no video

    Like I say it sounds as though apple have a real contender on the market, which you can use on any network as well. TBH its nice to here T3 actually prefer something that isnt made by apple for a change!
