    BlackBerry 5.0 is nice but I think they need develop something newer and cutting edge. They also need to work out the quirks and tell Verizon who is boss. Verizon has way too much control over what OS is released. .328 in my opinion is more buggy than the leak that came out right before the official OS. I played with the DROID (Motorolla) and the Web Browser was unbelievable!!!! I mean it was quick and just looked beautiful. Im happy that RIM has a relationship with ADOBE now and are supposedly working on a full functioning flash enabled browser but who knows when we will see that. It seems to me like the BB OS is falling behind the times. Android OS is going to take over if BB doesnt step it up. I love my BB Storm but already it seems that BB is forgetting about owners of older phones. For example, the Storm 1 has a graphics chip but yet RIM doesnt bother to enable openGL on it, just the Storm 2 and maybe others. The 83xx series was just reported as the highest sold BlackBerry in the past year but yet RIM doesnt bother releasing a 5.0 OS for the phone series. Comon RIM. Android will take over unless RIM gets creative and take care if ALL BB owners, not just the new phones. Why wouldnt you update the OS on your most popular phone??? RIM needs to take charge when releasing a new OS and not let carriers tell them which OS to release. I dont understand how an OS can be released with bone-headed mistakes like memory leaks and when switching form portrait to landscape you sometimes get the Sure-Type keyboard instead of Qwerty. And the necessity to do one battery pull after another, its just unbelievable to me and I can guarantee that Android 2.0 on the Driod doesnt have this problem or even 1.5 cupcake. I love Storm 1 and wont give it up. I hope RIM is working on stepping their game up!
