As Verizon gets ready to release the Storm in its stores here in the U.S., the hype on the net is reaching fever pitch.
They have a new flash presentation that details its specs and capabilities up:
There are blogs-A-plenty comparing the Storm with the iPhone (looks like the Storm is winning)
I have been really excited about these releases (Android, iPhone 3G, Storm). Since I have had good service from Verizon over the last 6 years, I was thinking that now that my contract is up I still want to stay with them. All it would take would be to feel that they have a phone that will serve me well in the coming two years while my business is really taking off.
I figured with the merging of smart phone/enterprise features of the Blackberry line and the “Gee Whiz” factor of touchscreens and entertainment , that the Storm would be a slam-dunk for me.
There is just one pesky doubt in my mind. The Storm does not allow for Wi-Fi connectivity. With all the other features it sports, I had hoped that they would include this low cost alternative to the 3G data option.
With my iPod Touch, I am constantly using the Wi-Fi option and living in the Bay Area, I can’t go more than a couple miles without finding a hot spot.
Am I just being too demanding? Am I being a difficult customer?
