But using Wi-Fi at Home, Mall, Office, Airport, and many places free. Also when you travel still many countries not have 3G so how you going the connected in Airport. Your phone is roaming and using the 7.2 is costly. Why you guy no study before you talk about what you say?

Can I ask a question to existing BlackBerry users? What as the web browser like on speed and reliability?
I currently use Nokia web browser, and I find it a bit slow, although most people say how great it is!
How long does it take to load say gsmarena front page with hsdpa connection?

In response to the theory that the Storm will be released on 25th October 2008 because this is the date shown on a Vodafone UK image on their website, please, don't get your hopes up. Think more November, perhaps towards the later stages of the month, and you'll be a bit closer to the mark.

I repeat, IT DOES NOT HAVE WIFI. I don't know where you get your information but it's incorrect. There is only one market that will get WIFI and that's the US market.

So, then what you need whe nyou end up at that Airport and want to check your e-mail free of charge? Wi-Fi.

I hope Blackberry reading this and let go the marketing guy and engineer design this device. I do not believe in their add try t ocompiar this with IPHONE when does not even have Wi-Fi.

Had a quick play on a vodafone UK one at work on Wednesday. It looks great I love the screen rotating and works for left handed :o)
i tried typing with both hands and it mostly kept up but the screen felt funny as it was "rocking" a bit. there's a competition to win on atm too.
