I’d have to agree with tnkgrl a device like this should have wifi. I hope RIM comes out with a non Verizon branded Storm with WiFi. tnkgrl November 19th, 2008 James, you’re missing the point about the lack of WiFi: – Some people prefer an affordable prepaid voice/SMS plan, and rely on WiFi for data (often free and plentiful in cities) – You can’t surf the web with EVDO on Virgin America’s WiFi-equipped planes – WiFi allows unique additional features for a phone on your WLAN (see the iPhone Remote app, for example) I’m of the opinion that a device the Storm’s caliber should have WiFi. Philip Ferris November 19th, 2008 Err, Storm not Bold [it’s late I’m tired] Philip Ferris November 19th, 2008 I’ll see your Bold and raise you a Touch HD http://lowjib7.blogspot.com/2008/11/touch-of-heaven-definitely-geeky-stroll.html Cheers Phil Daniel Seiden November 19th, 2008 I am curious to see how the keyboard is. I have heard mixed comments on it from people who have touched one. Certainly looks like a nice device. Wi-Fi would have been a cool addition but if the network is good enough there is really no need. James Kendrick November 19th, 2008 The Verizon EV-DO network is so good in urban areas that I don’t miss WiFi at all. I’m one of those who are happy with 3G over WiFi on mobile devices when necessary. I’ll have video posted of the Storm on 3G shortly. :) Steve 'Chippy' Paine November 19th, 2008 No Wifi? As JK would say… See-ya! Looks nice though. Rob November 19th, 2008 If you need to test it in a rural area, you can send it my way. Ya big dog you! :) Andy November 19th, 2008 Agreed. Verizon’s EVDO is stellar. And I’m stuck with ATT’s “3G”. =/ Richard November 19th, 2008 It’s Verizon… enough EV-DO Rev.A coverage to overcome the lack of WiFi. Sumocat November 19th, 2008 This is the first time I’ve ever been interested in a BlackBerry review (or a BlackBerry for that matter). tnkgrl November 19th, 2008 OMG!!!! No WiFi?? Fail… atoy7427 November 19th, 2008 Interested in your review. …and, yes, we never did see your review of the G1. Nate November 19th, 2008 @ bob cob Copy/paste is not an issue with Blackberries. Come to think of it, the iPhone is the only smartphone, that I’m aware of, that has this issue. thegirlinthecafe November 19th, 2008 Don’t let us wait too long! Also – did I miss your G1 review or is it still to come? bob cobb November 19th, 2008 test out how well copy paste works on it with text and urls. I might get rid of my iPhone for this if its worth it tivoboy November 19th, 2008 I can’t see it anymore, there is saliva all over my screen!! Nate November 19th, 2008 Come on you tease. Give us the goods. Micheal November 19th, 2008 I call dibs if you ever decide to give it away! And also, exactly how did you pull off this trick? Comments are closed.
