So everyone knows that there are going to be differences in the way that companies (Cell) impliment certain features on their platforms. Some do better in some areas while others excell in others.

I have used both the Black Berry Storm, and the Storm 2, and am now a user of the HTC Incredible running the Android 2.2 Froyo OS. the Storms OS eventually capped out at the 5.xx.....715 before I went to the Android.


Black Berry truly has done one thing right in their OS implimentation, they do multitasking well. I mean better than anyone else. I haven't used the IPhone, but on the two systems that I have used, BBerry wins. nuff said.

Minus, well it's not really a minus, because even though I have moved to a more entertainment oriented OS, I don't use it that much more than I did on the BBerry. I will say that one of the things that irritates me is the Droid system doesn't do Multitouch like the BBerry does. It takes more to select, cut, copy or paste than it does in the BBerry.

So if I were to list the reasons that I went to Droid....

  • Multiple home screen
  • more game apps
  • better screen
  • multitouch in zoom in gallery, and internet
  • Tabbed browsing

Things that I miss from the Storm 2

  • True Multitouch between applications
  • Sound Schemes
  • Multitasking
  • Facebook applications is better on bberry
  • intuitive touch Keyboard

Other than that, I believe that as with most things, the OS's are pretty much similar. So That's my simple evaluation between BBerry Touchscreen, and Android 2.2


Anyway let me know what you think. Is there something from other OS's that you would like to see somewhere else? Reasonable to get all the good things together and make one super Phone that everyone could love?
