Kicking up a storm(2)

chrischapman5 | | Permalink

I only hope that the referred to Storm2 is leaps and bounds better than the original storm. I had one around 8 months ago but despite persevering with it for a month, I came close to throwing it out of the window. I reverted back to my tried n trusted Pearl.

Recently when the rollerball started playing up on the pearl, I decided to dust off the Storm and give it another go. Alas, it was even more frustrating than before, so I've again retired it back into its box and got another Pearl.

The suretype is so frustrating and really restricts the speed at which you can type and switch from function to function. The horizontal/vertical self-correcting display is very unpredictable and often wont correct itself.  the battery life is horrendous. If I left in the morning with the battery fully charged then I could be sure that by the time I got home in the evening and after only making a modest number of calls and a short game or wordmole on the train, the battery would be dead.

Looking forward to hearing whether these any many other frustrations have been fixed in the next version.

Hi Chris,

Hopefully the new Storm will iron out some of the problems of its predecessor - in the meantime, I'm liking the way HTC are progressing with their Android-powered Hero and the upcoming Leo.

Whilst I love the Mac, I find it a lot quicker working on a dell. Not necessarily the processing speed, but the shortcuts I think are a lot better.
