STORM vs. iPHONE (Verizon vs. AT&T)

I hate how the US wireless carriers sign these exclusive backroom deals with cellphone manufacturers by not providing real choice, taking complete advantage, and screwing the average American. As usual, this is what happens when supposed free markets are allowed to run rampant with no government regulation or oversight.

Thanks to corporatists, monopolies abuse, control, take a lot, give very little, and dictate what we can and cannot do.

Anyhow, Research In Motion has just released the new Blackberry Storm which is their answer to Apple's iPHONE. As usual however, its exclusive to Verizon, just as the iPHONE is exclusive to AT&T. Vic & I are seriously thinking about getting out of our contracts with AT&T and heading to Verizon just for the STORM.

We'll see.
