It's a shame, RIM another realization of your failures to both your stockholders and customers. Just like the Pearl 2, you've failed by waiting too long and producing too little. This phone is doomed to fail.
If you want to attain your former glory, you need to set the bar higher. As it stands now, even the most hardcore blackberry enthusiasts are going to have a hard time justifying new contracts with carriers based on inferior handsets. Its really a shame you have chosen to let the industry you once reigned over pass you by.
It should change the BB OS. I hope that the OS is 7. It look ugly. I hope also that when it release, there are two colours for the phone that is black & white :). Yea. We are hoping that BlackBerry team will do many changes on the features. We want the camera and video in HD. A new application like Skype or Video call :D. That's only my suggestion. Sorry for the bad english -.-"
binadya, 10 May 2011OS 7 not os 6.1 . thank youLoL OS7 is 6.1 Re-brand with no backwards compatibility for apps
Should integrate the sure press click screen with the new hardware of the storm 3.
i agree with some of the comments becaws it has no hd resolution i guess it has little differents and is not much different from, it prediseser the st5orm 2 i would stick with a storm 2 and rim should make fully touch screen phones with flush face and lose the trackpad for storms
I'd like to remind these people, that the specs that are specified above is only for the TEST phone, and that this phone is still being made, well then thank you for your opinions, and may they be taken to consideration, but please please, do not compare phones, because everyone has their own taste. Thank you :)
i agree with the first persons comment. the specs are very weak compared to the thunderbolt , droid x, and other smartphones. does not have a flash player, very disappointed about that. if those are the true specs , then i am going to get the thunderbolt. Wake up rim , there is still time to make adjustments.
Very sorry to write this... Still these specs lack the market demands and advancements...
Ppl are carving behind HD videos and HD screen resolutions... I guess these specs should upgrade to compete the market...
KAUSHIK, 18 Mar 2011somebody please tell me when actually s-3 is gonna b released????this fall
No secondary camera.....very bad
it is still 3g, 4g has launched :(
i think the speed of 3G ..HSDPA..HSUPA..isn't 7,2Mbps but the correct speed is 10.2Mbps
I work in a phone store and have had hands on experiance with the storm 1 storm2 and torch i also had a contract for the storm 1 which i paid $1000 to upgrade early, BlackBerry are terrable at makeing a touch screen handset and I personaly think the torch was the storm one all over again a terable handset, I cant see how the storm 3 is going to be any better. needless to say the Blackberry 9700 was and still is a fantastic phone.
Matsebe - South Afri, 02 Jan 2011Hi As a happy BlackBerry Storm user, I was hoping something things should be taken seriousl... moreThanks Mr. Matsebe for the specifications you have mentioned . I hope that BBM take your suggestion.
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2011The phone is bad, ugly looking and its basicly the bb storm 2, plus a track pad. Why uncluding... moreno its not it also has the nwe OS wich is fantastic and it has a better camera and its like a more like the torch
cora, 04 Feb 2011its obvius you dont have or had the actual storm2 the trackpad will be very usefull for navi... morewell it looks like you dont own any full touchscreen phone thats why you like track pads, well i tell you its harder to use a track pad than a full touchscreen phone, full touch harder to use??LOL!:P the track pad is slow to use, you scroll down up and push the track pad to select,what a waste of time! LOL! you just tap it once on a full touch screen phone your done!
