Due out some time in November: the Blackberry Storm
. I saw this yesterday (photos only) at the Verizon store in Huntington Beach, and what a nifty piece of hardware it appears to be. The only thing on my wish list that isn't there is built-in WiFi capability; for reasons unknown, they elected not to provide one, odd for a product supposed to be lined up as an iPhone killer. Nonetheless it's close enough
, and as I have a serious grudge against AT&T
, the iPhone is right out of the question, especially after Apple inked a deal with AT&T to extend their window of exclusivity through 2010
Given the poor performance of the latest Palm I got (the Palm T|X, which had endless problems between the screen freaking out on me, the weird new Grafitti, a crappy and apparently mandatory Palm-written UI on the Mac that's just unbearable, and no working interface to Linux apps), I think I'm finally ready to ditch the Palm line.
