I really, really want to upgrade to the Blackberry Storm (and more than likely, I will). I'm just concerned that the phone may have a few glitches if I get the first ones that are released. I know people that got the first iPhones-some of them had problems with the first ones, then they released the 3G, which made the first ones seem archaic.
Of course with every new handset there will be some kind of glitch or lag, mainly s/w issues. It's a good thing that once s/w issues do arise, they can be easily fixed thru a s/w update. Hardware problems are most rare than s/w problems. If there was a major hardware problem then the device would most likely be recalled. Blackberry is known for quality. Not much to worry about if you want to be among the first to get the phone.
I plan on upgrading to the storm as soon as its released, and honestly I'm not worried about any software glitches. One thing I've always liked about verizon is the are meticulous in there testing before they release a new handset, and if you or I happen to get one with an issue they'll either fix or replace the handset. So I wouldn't worry.
