Is BlackBerry another Rival for the iPhone.

A couple of month ago we had the launch of the G1, Google Phone, in an attempt to rival the popularity of the iPhone. Then BlackBerry launched a rival to the iPhone, marking a new phase in the battle with Apple.

What makes a particular product notable and worthwhile? Well probably when the competition takes notice and tries to outdo you. Many would argue that the iPhone has been a huge success . Including the likes of Google and BlackBerry, who have indicated so by the release of their own smartphones to rival the iPhone and perhaps steal a share of the market.

The Storm has a touch-screen, and has many of the features familiar to smartphone users. Things like e-mail, web browsing and a camera and video recorder. However, it aims to differentiate itself by making its touchscreen more tactile than those of its competitors. This means that users feel the sensation of pressing down on virtual keys when they type using the new phone, while keys also light up when pressed.  Is this enough to make a difference? Will it draw users away from the iPhone and G1?

The smartphone wars are just getting interesting. Which one do you think will take first prize? Do you prefer the iPhone, Googles G1, or the new  BlackBerry Storm? It certainly is great for technology. What a big step from the first cell phone, which was nothing more than a glorified brick.

Imagine what Alexander Graham Bell might be thinking now. I wonder if he ever though how his invention of the telephone would lead to the likes of the iPhone, the G1 and the BlackBerry Storm.
