Blackberry Battle: Bold vs Storm

November 23, 2008

This holiday season has seen the release of many new gadgets and fun pieces of technology, and with the release of two new phones, Blackberry seems to be at the head of the curb. Blackberry has recently released the Bold for AT&T and the Storm for Verizon Wireless. The two have unique characteristics to brag about, but which one will come out on top?

First, lets look at the advertising used, specifically the television commercials. Both commercials highlight the new features of the phones, being the Bold’s 3G network, and the Storm’s touchscreen. Personally, the Storm commercial was way more interesting and was able to drive my attention more, because it left the viewer wanting more. The commercial for the Bold seemed too predictable, and probably would have been more successful if they used a familiar face, such as Jamacain sprinter Usain Bolt.

On paper, the two have the usual specifications, including the RIM Wireless Modem, 1GB of memory and all of the features you would expect from a Blackberry. The biggest downfall for either, is that fact that the Storm doesn’t support WiFi! This could be the biggest problem with the Storm, since the design seems to be flawless, and the “clickable” touchscreen capability seems to be unmatched – even by the iPhone.

As a Verizon user, I am extremely excited about the release of the Bold. Everyone saw a touchscreen Blackberry coming, but at first glance it seems like so much more than that. One the other hand, a friend has the new Bold, so I got to fool around with it, and it is classy. It combines a sleek look, with a fast network, what else could you want?

So, which one would you choose?
