As on the blackberry website itself you can see the spec's for each region and non have Wifi. This is the only turn down i'm having for this phone :(

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2008-10-08 10:37 from tSke - click to readI don't know if I would go so far as to say this device has 'all known features' like a recent poster. The storm does look impressive, but 480x360 on 3.2" is a far cry from 800x480 on 3.8". A 3MP camera is a far cry from an 8MP camera. No WiFi compared to Wifi a/b/g. The lagging BBerry core software vs mainstream software development & tweakers for the crappy WinOS and others. Heck you can even get tweaker roms/updates for the HTC line. Thats a few things off the top of the head. Good the Storm may be...Excellent it is definitely not.

i mean why are people even trying to compare this with iPhone
this is way better than the iPhone
how can you compare something which provide all the functions known to mankind on a gadget to a phone which is just a music device

Do not compare this with any other phones in market as the intention of BlackBerry Mobile Devices are completely different.

This is a boon for the Business Customers.

=> Tuch Screen seems to be good on videos
=> None others say that it has got Wi-fi except our GSMARENA guru.

appreciate if some one can ost some more good reviews and release on this

Lets hope 2 c dis soon.

Nokia 5800 will still be superior to the IPhone and the Blackberry Touch. You better believe it-Nokia is back!
