Well welcome to the site dustin glad you can join us i had the blackberry storm 9520 and i hated it and now i have the blackberry tour 9630 and is ok but im getting my droid this weds and let me tell you the droid is waaaaaaaaaay better than the storm faster proccesor better web wifi believe me you will love it i dont know if you have play with a droid yet but i suggest you check it out at the store just incase i know is not much information but i hope i helped i lil take care
I'm on my Droid now. If I was on the computer, I would give a laundry list. However, first and foremost, NO BATTERY PULLS. I don't miss those one bit. Better memory management and no spinning clock when issuing a command to perform a simple task like opening a program.
Newer OS that is open source so no limits on development of apps. Java is old on the BB system.
Market is so much better than blackberry app world and a lot of the apps are free.
No battery pulls
Better virtual typing IMHO (right up there with the Iphone)
Physical keyboard as well.
Better resolution screen
Turn by turn navigation
MUCH MUCH MUCH Better browser. Right up there with Safari on the Iphone
Fast as hell
Email is better in my opinion....ok here me out. BB are great at getting you pushed email, but from there it kind of sucks. There are truncated generic looking. With BB you also don't have an option to not get email. There were times I wanted to not get my work email, but it was a pain to stop it. With my Droid...I make the decision when I want it....and the emails look like they were meant to.
Better updates. Well I am betting on this since it is google and they like pushing things and being creative.
I can't stress enough there there are a bunch of apps out there. Similar to another "there's an app for that" phone.
Now....this phone takes a little time to learn and the manual bites. Once you get moving with it though....amazing.
Focus issues with the camera have been documented to death. The fix is supposedly on the way.
I was a devoted BB user and left my Tour for this phone. Not even close to looking back.
** on a side note...beware of what you here on the Crackberry android forum. Some is legite, but others are pure out BB trolls making crap up.
well i enjoy it but i also play with my os way to much i ran straingt 5.0 for about 20 minutes before i built my own and that is what i am curious about what are the limits on the droid because i can do almost anything on my storm
im about to go buy in it in a second so we will see
