Storm - Very heavy in weight

by eric815    Oct 13, 2008, 11:01 AM

I think many people have overlooked one con that may be the deal breaker for me. Its the weight. The new storm is going to be 5.5 oz. Thats about 15% heavier than the 8830 (4.6oz). And the size of the Storm is about sliver smaller length and width of the 8830. So why the big increase in weight? For a device that small it will be like a piece of lead. Its even .75 oz heavier than my current Samsung i760.

A 5.5 oz phone is almost as heavy as the HTC6800 5.8oz.

I personally think the HTC Diamond Touch at 4.1 oz is where the new RIM should be at. At least the Storm should be no heavier than 4.6 oz 8830.
