Life On BlackBerry Road Show – Singapore

I’m absolutely in love with the new Blackberry Storm. Was not a big fan till I used Blackberry Pearl (loan from Paul). The texting and all feature is uber-cool. And the storm accentuate all the new platform especially web 2.0 from facebook to twitter.. its awesome. Just imagine you can tweet all day (free from M1).  So when I heard of the roadshow, I packed my bag, dropped by Starbuks got my usual –  Iced 2shot regular 1shot decaf grande 2 pump vanilla soy extra caramel drizzle caramel macchiato. Off I went to Atrium tropics at Suntec. 

It was the first day so it was not crowded. it was before 3pm on a friday.. The most disappointing part they only had like 2 live phone to play with. The rest was all dummies.
Wondering what will happen the crowd hits during the weekend. 

After queueing I finally lay my hand on the Storm. its sturdy and fits perfectly on the palm. Do you know its the clickable touch screen phone in the world. That means the screen response to your click. Its a bit freaky the first few times.. you feel like the phone is broken or you have broke it.. 
Its definitely going to give the iPhone another strong competitor..

here are some technical specification.. All mobile providers in Singapore has some promotion with Blackberry Storm. Check out M1 and take the phone away with Pay nothing on Take 3.
Don’t forget to read the fine prints. Singtel and Starbhubs offers with trade in.
