I had a friend who wanted an iPhone, but decided he'd wait and see how the Blackberry Storm stacked up. His son had an iPhone, so he took it into a Verizon office and played with them side by side. He tells me that in 5 minutes it was clear to him that he'd hate the Storm. He told me this as he was showing off his new iPhone.

David Pogue reviewed the Storm for the NY Times and reached the same conclusion.

I haven't found a soul who tried this machine who wasn't appalled, baffled or both.

The keyboard doesn't work, navigation is awful, and there's no wi-fi. Hard to believe people waited in line for this.
