Readers had a lot to say about our article on smartphones, which compared the iPhone with the BlackBerry Storm and T-mobile's G1. "I bought and returned my Blackberry Storm because it was not email or text friendly," wrote Greg Smith. "The Blackberry Storm is not ready for hardcore business users."
But Michael Felkey, president of marketing firm Intersect, disagreed with the chorus of anti-Storm voices.
I replaced my Blackberry 8830 World Phone with the Storm about a month ago. Although it has taken a little time to get used to the virtual keyboard, I couldn`t be happier with my choice. Unfortunately, I can no longer type messages with one hand while trying to drive with the other, but this is probably for the best.
Tony Darnell, CEO of WideVision, says he's switching from the BlackBerry to the iPhone.
As a wireless dealer, I have tried five different Blackberries, the Sprint Instinct (Samsung) and then finally, the iPhone. The iPhone has a superior user interface. ... Web access and viewing is a vast improvement over anything else I have tried. While I have been a crackberry user since they were introduced, I am now switching to the iPhone. The only downside is that it takes a while to get used to the keyboard. And, for downloading games and applications, it can`t get any easier with the iPhone.
