The Blackberry Storm is getting a lot of criticism around the web. The most notable is the rant by David Pogue over at the New York Times. His story titled “No Keyboard? And You Call This a BlackBerry?” is so filled with frustration, anger and disappointment that I couldn’t help but feel sorry for the poor PR managers at Research in Motion. I can highly recommend reading it.

Here is one of many videos showing an iPhone and Blackberry Storm showdown. This one compares load times of a new websites on both devices in real time. Unfortunately for RIM the iPhone wins this one too.
