iPhone 3G vs Blackberry Storm

At home I'm married to my iPhone, but at work I depend on my Blackberry Storm. As a lot of people might relate to, the Storm was a company decision which I have to live with. To an extent I like the Storm, it's a rugged phone with very good reception here in Maine - Verizon is a good carrier. However there are many aspects of the Storm which just don't compare with the iPhone, so for the sake of time I thought it might be interesting to show a couple aspects of my Storm and 3G; keyboard and Calendar which I use constantly and which clearly illustrate the distance in function and performance between the two. As the holidays approach, and as many of the original iPhone's come off contract and you find yourself wondering whether you want to stick with the iPhone or maybe switch to something else, I hope this video gives you a bit of useful information.

I'm a behavioral health professional living and working in Maine specializing in psychiatric rehabilitation. For years I've utilized mobile technology to improve the delivery of community based mental health services, and embraced the iPhone when it came out in 2007.

I am also a doctoral candidate at Franklin Pierce University where I have been researching the role of the Liberal Arts in American higher education.

I write as a guest for iPhone Life periodically with a special interest in helping other professionals (healthcare, education and government in particular) incorporate iOS devices into their work, and several years ago introduced the first iPhone and eventually iPad classes at Lewiston Adult Education in Lewiston Maine http://laeipad.blogspot.com/ concentrating on helping other professionals interested in using and incorporating iPads into their work.
