The iPhone has been the darling of gadget lovers but its the Blackberry Storm that has been highly anticipated in enterprise circles. Research in Motion’s latest device that mimics many of the features introduced in the iPhone has, according to reports, been very well received.
Some of the features that are unique to the Storm are :
- Support for Microsoft Office documents
- Copy and Paste
- Tactile Feedback – to give a physical effect for keys pressed
- Support for both CDMA and GSM
- 3.2 MP camera
- Support for normal 3.5mm Jack for headphones
Features similar are automatic switching to portrait and landscape mode, on screen keyboards (some difference is there in the portrait mode). The device is available from Verizon Wireless. One real hard miss is the lack of support for WiFi. For $200 and a two year contract its a good alternative for the enterprise users mesmerized with the iPhone.
