BlackBerry Storm 9530
So, What's so cool about it?
2. How can I watch my Slingbox when I travel?
3. Can you make VOIP calls on this phone?
4. Is it possible to transfer a presentation or contact via bluetooth from my phone to this phone? Historicaly it was not possible with Verizon.
Correct me if I am wrong, but this does not sound as a business-friendly phone, but I had no chance to play with it.
Some mentioned being able to successfully move music and vids to the phone. Considering the fact that Verizon's been blocking moving "outside" music and vids to some phones for years, it may be a big development for Verizon's customers, but for others that's been just a standard feature ...
Sounds like you haven't dealt with Verizon in years though and things have changed. Their network is opening up and changing with the times, so what once was isn't so much anymore.
Any Blackberry is a business friendly phone but I suppose it depends on your definition of what a business friendly phone is. What is your definition?
Music, vids, and files are simple to move to and from the phone. You can drag and drop them into the card, use BB manager, or even use a Mac.
Many (not all) phones have been out for years with the capabilities to move "outside" music onto them. Lots of purpose built music oriented devi...
My Definition of business phone:
You are correct, I have not been playing with Verizon phones for a while. Things apparently changed at VZW.
Rogers in Canada will be getting it. Unlocked, it could be a lot of fun
It has blackberry's email system which is one of the best. I have my emails go both to my work exchange server and my BB and my BB gets my email first everytime. I get full HTML on my storm.
It also has a range of office programs from spreadsheets to powerpoints from RIM. You can purchase the Microsoft phones for your BB too if you really want them.
The only thing this phone doesn't have is the ability to do some things cheeply but it will do all the things you want it to well, and to me that's the definition of a buisness phone.
I think this is a very good platform and Vzw version of this phone is a decent business phone for US focused business. With the economy in a dump right now every $ counts when you travel abroad, so Canadian version 9520 sounds like a slightly better deal for int'l travelers.
