BB sucks, why all the hype.

Iphone is the mother of all phones.

It beats all these windows mobile phones.

FYI: i have a windows mobile phone tooo so i know what am saying, xda exec

@MsTom et al,

Please who knows where I can get an N900 phone ?

I met some guys from salesonline at Oregun but they said they could only get the locked version.

Got to Nokia place @Ikeja and was told that it has not been officially released in Naija and as such if I buy the imported copies in the market, I'l not have access to some functionalities such as push mail cos Nokia doesnt support the phone in Nigeria yet.

and finally someone told me I can only pick up the phone from any of the telecom operators on a contract/postpaid basis. As in its not available for the regular prepaid market.

My ques is simply what is the true situation of the N900 as regards the nigerian market and if its available for regular prepaid phone users , where can I get it and how much ?

Need a new phone urgently

If you asked me Now, I'd go for the Storm 'cause I got a Bold. These blackberries are starting to suck pretty much though, Just take a Notebook PC along wherever I go so I don't have to strain my eyes to read an email - phew.

well, that is not good for someone like me that likes being in control of messaging facilities. Why would I want to leave a messaging facility like the BB messaging online all the time even when I am busy and can't be bothered to reply, hence it's not robust enough like the yahoo and msn where u can control your privacy. It's also very similar to text messaging.

I think the origin of the hype is using a smartphone for the first time. It's like someone upgrading from a nokia series 30 or 40 to a smart phone that runs windows mobile OS, Symbian, BlackBerry OS e.t.c

well, the first smart phone a lot of people would be using is the BB, so that may be the reason for the hype.

@poster, although i don't fancy BB as they are no different from Nokia E-series phones, in my opinion, bold 2 is more of a messaging phone while the storm 2 is more of a multimedia phone.

Beats me! that was the only reason I could think for the craze for blackberry.

The specs of both phones are decent and similar. If you do a lot of messaging, nothing beats a physical qwerty keyboard with tactile feedback. If you want a BB with looks-appeal the storm may interest you, however the touchscreen on it isn't the sleekest out there.

You might want to check Nokia N97mini & E72, Motorolla Droid (has both touch and qwerty inputs) or the apple iphone

I dont see the reason why people are crazy about bb all my life i've been a nokia fan and always will be, if you want a good phone go for E72 the phone make sense

The first noticeable difference are the size and the metal finish on the mini. there are more differences, google will help with that.

U might want to wait for the Nokia N97 Mini 18 carat Gold Edition. It's gonna be released into the market this April,

If the BB pin requires internet connection, then what's the hype cos it would be no different from yahoo messenger, msn messenger, ovi messaging for Nokia, skype for mobiles, AIM e.t.c so u still incur internet charges, totally pointless.

I am a N series fan anytime, anyday. N97 32 is good. If you want soemthing small, go for the N97 mini. However, if you are concerned with performance, go for N900. You can compared them to get your preference by going to the nokia site.

PS: N900 is my choice

Your choice would depend on these in my opinion:

1. What you want to do with the phone

2. The amount of typing you do

3. Your love for touch screen or lack of love for it

But strictly from my own personal view, the Storm 2 beats the bold by a distance. They are both BB based but there is a lot of technical differences between the two. The biggest advantage I see though is the tunnelling through WiFi to the BES, not just using the WiFi for surfing the web.

If however you do not intend to have the BB service plan, then go for the Storm 2 as then there would be no comparison at all.

Blackberry 2 does it for me. Blackberry storm can be very annoying when you need to get certain things done as a matter of urgency.

It really depends on what you use ur bb for. Personally, I prefer a bb with a keypad. I currently own the tour which is very good but cld be slow sometimes. I send out/receive 70+ work related emails a day, so it just makes since to have a keypad.

However, if its strictly for enterntainment/personal, then the the storm works better. Just my two cents.

Got a BB bold 2, nice phone really but then depends on if you prefer a touch screen phone or not.

Chose my present one after having a bad experience with my LG arena touch screen. Though I don't know how good the BB's touch screen might be? I tend to stay away from touch screens for now.

Blackberry Bold 2, Baby.

It's a beautiful, efficient and worth-your-while masterpiece.

The best BB ever!

I have never liked Blackberry phones.

But I would rather go for the Blackberry Storm being a touchscreen. For the Bold, the buttons are just too tiny to handle.
