BB Storm 9500 :: Didnt Have WiFiOct 21, 2009
I was hoping to find out from Blackberry if there will be any promotions/free upgrades for those of us who already bought the Blackberry Storm 9530 to upgrade to the 9550?
I purchased my Blackberry Storm last winter when it first came out and was very happy with the purchase. My only concern at the time was that the Storm didn't have WiFi. I was contemplating other devices with WiFi, but decided on the Storm because of the reputation of Blackberry. Also, a lot of people I know have a Blackberry and it has made communicating with them using the Blackberry Instant Messenger and PINing a lot faster.
However, now I find out that the Storm 9550 is coming out with WiFi and that irks me quite a bit. Had I known a newer model with WiFi would be out less than a year after the first model came out, I would have waited and bought the newer one.
I just don't feel that it is fair for those of us who spent a few hundred dollars on a Storm a year ago, to then have to dish out more money for an upgrade that I assume was already in the works when the 9530 came out.
