The Blackberry Storm arrives tomorrow from Verizon Wireless. It is the world's first touch screen Blackberry and is getting a lot of press as a true iPhone competitor. You can read engadget's review here.
If you are considering buying an iPhone or a Storm you may want to take a little time and head on over to BillShrink.com.
BillShrink launched today a Blackberry Storm vs. iPhone 3G Comparison Site where consumers can view and calculate the real cost of each device and plan, features and related service head to head.
BillShrink helps consumers find the right phone and plan given their personalized usage patterns, e.g., how many texts you send, how many minutes you use, etc. In today’s tight economy, they claim they're helping consumers save an average of $340 annually on their cell phone bills.
Headquartered in beautiful Redwood City, CA, BillShrink is a free, personalized savings service for everyday services like wireless and credit cards. Not only will Billshrink find the best wireless plans and credit cards for you today, but they can automatically repeat the analysis for you on a regular basis to keep you optimized as your usage changes, better product offers come to market, etc.
They do this by using sophisticated computer algorithms that scan millions of data points, constantly re-calculating your usage and needs against the millions of possible product combinations. And they do all of this for free. (They make money by referring consumers to merchants.)
Pretty cool idea and certainly a great service these days. Give it a shot and let us know what you think.
