BlackBerry Storm vs Apple iPhone 3G

Apple iPhone vs BlackBerry StormIt was perhaps inevitable that Research in Motion would release a touch-screen contender for the iPhone.

The RIM BlackBerry Storm that was launched to the UK in November 2008 exclusively with Vodafone.

Since then there have been the inevitable YouTube BlackBerry Storm vs Apple iPhone comparison video's and the Internet is littered with BlackBerry Storm vs iPhone articles and reviews.

It's fair to say that overall, each of these phones is phenomenal in it's own right. Both iPhone and BlackBerry have their own very loyal following and the general consensus is that iPhone users will not be lured away, whilst existing BlackBerry users will be overwhelmed with the feature rich, highly tacticle Storm / Touch, which is very much 'power in their hands'.

Both handsets have high resolution, sensational screens and whilst the iPhone wins slightly on size and number of available colours, the Storm wins on resolution and clarity when viewing video. Another plus with the Storm (nee BlackBerry Touch) is the feedback given by it's clickable touch screen, which is an impressive world first - a touch screen that gives the sensation of buttons.

Each handset offers formidable connectivity and whilst the iPhone wins for it's Wi-Fi, the Storm reduces this slight edge with GPRS, EVDO, CDMA. Both smartphones have HSDPA and full GSM connectivity.

In the Storm vs iPhone battle, further wins for BlackBerry include a more highly specified camera (3.2MP & flash) and greater memory flexibility with Micro SD expansion of up to 16Mb (soon to be 32Mb!). Aside from this, the iPhone has it's own highly intuitive proprietary operating system (that iPhone users rave about) plus, with the Apple iPhone now being in it's second generation, it will clearly win on available applications - although this gap is likely to be short lived as an army of developers get to work on BlackBerry Storm applications.

The reality, is that in pure user experience, both the iPhone and Storm have very broad consumer appeal and are a joy to use. The BlackBerry Storm probably has more potential as a business smartphone, although the BlackBerry Bold is probably better placed as the business BlackBerry of choice. For the overall winner of the BlackBerry Storm vs iPhone debate, it all comes down to personal choice and to how important Wi-Fi is in the scheme of things. All that aside, our vote is for the BlackBerry Storm and the hard fact that BlackBerry continue to dominate the smartphone market.
