Top three mobile application threats

Competition Samsung Omina? 'Orrible! Apple iPhone? I don't think so! No, RIM's BlackBerry Storm is the touchscreen mobile to go for this season, says Vodafone, and it's going to give three lucky Register Hardware readers one of the in-demand handsets.

The Storm - aka the 9500 - sports a 3.25in, 480 x 360 touchscreen. It's got quad-band GSM/GPRS/Edge and HSDPA 3G connectivity to keep you in touch. Round the back, there's a 3.2-megapixel camera with a 2x digital zoom for still snaps and recording video at up to 30 frames per second. There's 1GB of on-board memory that's expandable using 16GB Micro SD cards. It even has music and movie playback too.

You can read our initial impressions of the brand new handset here.

Over the coming weeks, we'll be offering a series of chances to win one of three BlackBerry Storm handsets on the Vodafone network. Each time, we'll have one of the sexy, shiny handsets up for grabs - sorry, we can't provide airtime or a BlackBerry email deal. Just fill out all of the following fields and answer the three questions for your chance to enter the draw.

You can only enter each competition once, and no individual will win more than one prize, but you're free to enter as many of the competitions as you like. The closing date for this draw: Midnight, Friday, 26 December 2008.

This competition is now closed
