omnia vs storm vs dare

by min    Dec 1, 2008, 4:34 PM

I work at vzw and I have to admit that the storm has not impressed me too much. There is an extreme wait for the pone to turn itself on after hitting the power button. Also, the lag when pressing icons or opening files is noticeable, especially vs some of the other devices. The consensus from most business customers is that it is great for email and pictures, but there is a large adjustment if you are coming from a curve/pearl etc.
I currently use the dare, and just ordered the omnia. The dare is great for the screen, excellent response times and surprisingly long battery life.Reception is top notch as well.
From my time with the demo omnia, the screen works really well ( severe improvement from the glyde) and the camera is the best available from vzw right now as well. Great battery, solid reception as well. The jury is still out on the file cabinet interface ( having to drag things from the left to the right of the screen) but overall this is DEFINITELY the sleeper device that will catch people off guard.
Oh, and fyi there is a mandatory data plan on all pda's at vzw. There is a 29.99 option for web based and personal email wth unlimited internet, and a44.99 option for those with bes/exchange servers that also need full sync of their calendars.
