I've listed some main features and put together some posts from folks who had the opportunity to play with it. You won't be disappointed. But why do I not think it's an iPhone killer. A few reasons. One is we don't know everything there is to know about it yet. I've listed a few others including why I don't think Apple has to worry . Yet.
Here are today's Storm update and video of the demo.
- Video from Crunchgear
- Engadget - SDK and emulator
- Business Week - another hands on with Storm. Loves the keyboard.
- RCR Wireless - no pricing yet.
- Gizmodo on Vodafone's 3D Tour.
- This one is big. BGR reports Storm will be free. Catch: Only for tariffs over $35. About $70. I have to say, it's steep but not bad. "Game On!" says RIM.
- Ubergizmo on some specs. Agreed. No Wi-Fi?!
- Onxo on Blackberry Application Store.
- Onxo has started an update on Storm.
Mobile Device Update:
- Wired reports notebook makers join WiMax bandwagon. We believe 3G and other mobile broadband merge, provide mobile users more flexibility. Maybe even savings.
- BGR reports Firefox mobile weeks away.
- Liliputing reports Intel buys "netbook.com"
- Crunchgear reports Lenovo, Acer, and Toshiba will add WiMax access to their laptops.
- Engadget shows Toshiba's new sexy laptop with WiMax. No pricing yet.
- Macnn reports half of 2009 cars will have iPod connectivity.
- Ubergizmo on Xperia used to control settings in a car. I have to say, that's pretty cool if useless.
- Yahoo News on Web tech helping cut mobile fees and costs.
- Onxo on how wireless providers can make it easier for customers to stay.
- Onxo on tech spending this year.
- Onxo on state of mobile war. Part 2: mobile devices versus laptops.
- Small Wave on app stores differences.
- Small Wave wonders if Google's Android is truly open. We don't think so. We believe Google learned some bad habits from its new wireless friend.
