> In reply to Anonymous @ 2008-10-08 21:58 from nFaM - click to readI agree Blackberry seems to make great phones, but c'mon, no wi-fi is a strange/bad decision. 3G eats the battery faster (hmmm ... not 100% sure though) and is not available in locations where wi-fi is. Also, when travelling abroad wi-fi is much more convenient as roaming 3G plans are very very expensive.

Is it a joke that this device has no WLAN?

Seems interesting, but no Wi-fi is strange for a business device. This lack is in the same category as first iPhone who did not have 3G. Strange design decisions. Nokia 5800, which is mostly a multimedia device, beats this device on business features ... and that is not normal. Wi-fi is kinda vital for a business man. I still cant believe the Nokia 5800 will be 279 euro + taxes ... must see it first to believe it :) Sounds too good to be true with all those features, even if it's less responsive than iPhone.

I am little unsure how anyone can leave a review on here about this phone, and especially slagging it off considering it hasn't even been released so no one has seen it yet. Things I can say are that BlackBerry's are the most advanced handhelds on the market, and the people slateing them either haven't used one or haven't given them a chance. They are a completley different device than the standard mobile phone, so yes the first time you use one you will probably want to chuck it out of the window as you will have to learn something completely new. But, after the first couple of days or at most the first week you will be in love and you will never look back, other devices will seem basic and old, and you will become completely attached to the phone and wonder how you got though your life without one. I got myself a BlackBerry fell in love and so far have converted around 50 people or more in the last few months. And as for wifi not being listed on the device, so what? Vodafone have got this device on their website and from what their internet packages look like then you can basically get unlimited data for a small price at the fastest speeds availible of 7.2. I can't wait for this to come out, if it does what it says it will and looks as good as the pictures then it will be the best phone to ever come onto the market.

RIMM Fails Again.

At a MINIMUM this phone should have 16 million colors/24 bit and a resolution of 640x480.

BlackBerry finally start make phone like others. But forget about the Wi-Fi. So, they need to go back to drawing board again and come with another new Model. I never consider ever buy Blackberry but I thought this time will buy one since it looks great. But gsmarena today say no Wi-Fi. So much for Blackberry. Good bye

So disappointing it has no WILAN, it may be a revoultion for RIM but has lesser specs than many of its alternative phones X1, Omnia, Bold and the iphone if you can forgive the camera, to name but a few.

I'm not the only one, I just have to look at my colleagues phones.

Blackberry has given me enough problems to never want to purchase another one.

If you are in the UK you can return your phone, if it is sharp enough to cut you under the provisions of the Consumer Protection Act. They will have no defence and you can get your money back plus compensation for any injuries or consequential losses.
If it is just a case of a defective but not dangerous product then same but tell them about the Sale of Goods Act

This will make the iPhone so yesterday.
With all the problems the iPhone has from poor build qualities to 3G reception, the Blackberry Storm will give Apple a run for its money!
I have an iPhone 3G and have had nothing but problems and now Apple isn't standing behind there products because they say that all my problems are within specs of build - light leaks, loose buttons (and they only got 4 buttons), dust under the LCD and rough edges (sharp enough to cut your hand). If these are within spec, Apple has a mess on its hands... And they do! I hope the Blackberry can and will build a phone as they have done in the past that is superior to the iPhone... I can't wait for this beauty to be released.
