Celcom’s BlackBerry Storm teaser slings a shot on iPhone 3G

Posted:  April 2, 2009   By:    10 comments   

The Storm is really coming and Celcom has started its pre-launch teaser campaign on its site. Now you can pre-book your BlackBerry Storm, the Ultimate all-in-one messaging and multimedia device from Celcom.


From the looks of it, Celcom is positioning this as the ultimate phone similarly to Maxis claim to fame with the iPhone 3G recently. This is even obvious when Celcom’s microsite tries to pit the Storm against iPhone 3G in a straight on comparison on features.

Fair enough that iPhone 3G comes short when it comes to mobile telephony basics such as MMS, Video recording, external memory support and changable battery but that isn’t stopping people from getting the iPhone 3G. How many people sends MMS and record video from the phones? We also disagree that Celcom notes that the iPhone doesn’t support voice dail and push mail as it does work and we believe most of the shortcomings would be eventually improved in the next iPhone 3.0 firmware update.

The iPhone 3G and Blackberry Storm are great phones but it all goes down to what is more relevant to your need. For more details, visit the Blackberry Storm’s microsite.

i prefer blacberry storm.. iphone 3g is expensive and less features.. only the brand make it look so good.. further more next generation of iphone will be launched in june/july, what cant we wait few more month to get the better one..

maxis also selling overprice with their ridiculus plan and contract.


Celcom should stay focus in delivering features tat people want and keep the berry price within reach. The iphone is a great gadget but Maxis is sucking the people dry with its overpriced tag.
