The Don Juan of mobile phones, BlackBerry Storm did better than its touchscreen brother, Android G1. Analytics firm, Hitwise, compared the number of searches for the term “BlackBerry Storm” with those for “G1” and declared a winner.
As a result, nearly four times more people are interested in finding out more details about BlackBerry’s first touchscreen handset that about a phone using Google’s open platform. Moreover, this research showed that many people prefer referring to the G1 as the “Google phone”, which might not come as a pleasant surprise to T-Mobile, its carrier in the US.
The research also showed that some people are unaware of the fact that BlackBerry Storm and BlackBerry Thunder are the same device, since they continue to search for results on the older title of the handset as well.
