Dueling Documents: AT&T Hatin' the Storm, RIM Hatin' the iPhone
If you head on over to Crackberry.com you will notice a "few" articles relating to the BlackBerry Storm on Verizon. Honestly, it is no surprise since this is supposed to be RIM's answer to the iPhone.
A few months back Casey reported on a AT&T store handing out anti-iPhone propaganda to it's customers... Now AT&T themselves are taking shots at the BlackBerry Storm. And is it really a surprise seeing how Verizon is pushing this device as it's iPhone killer?
The Boy Genius Report has two independent sources supplying a email floating around AT&T that is laying the smack down on the latest effort of RIM, the BlackBerry Storm. Some of the key points being the lack of WiFi, multi-touch screen, App Store, and tri-band HSDPA.
...Meanwhile, BlackBerry News [via CrackBerry.com, naturally) has their own internal documents from last summer detailing why the BlackBerry is better than the iPhone 3G. Naturally, RIM is touting their history, keyboard, and most of all Enterprise chops.
Personally I want this Storm to come out already so we can put it up against the iPhone 3G and find out once and for all which device will come out on top!

This is more critical to Apple's future than AT&T game.
Apple broke many app with the August o/s release required to make the platform stable. Many apps that were ok with 2.1 are not now. No advance notice of changes by Apple, so the vendors were left scrambling to get fixes in, and now Apple's release process is so slow that vendors that have had upgrades in since just after the 2.1 release still have not seen them released to the App store.
Apple will not have much problem with the competition if they start talking to their customers (ie support = conversation) and the iPHone delivers its promise but if they continue in their current pattern of customer abuse they will give the competition opportunities.
That is all
