That thing looks thick! I love my Razr 2 because it is so thin and I would only give it up for an iPhone. I so dread that my local regional cell company is waiting FCC approval to take it over. Though if the coverage is the same then I'll be happy!
I used a storm for a while while helping a cousin pair it with her lexus, and that click touchscreen was not too friendly. Especially after using an iphone. hopefully they can improve on it with the Storm 2. I'm really loving my Blackberry Bold!
I'm waiting for the new Blackberry Tour which is supposedly coming to Verizon in July. The only bummer is that it does not have wi-fi, but I think I can live with that. I bought a Verizon Network Extender, so now I have good coverage at my house.
There have been a lot of issues with the Storm, so they needed to fix that. I had a hard time typing on the Storm keyboard. From what I've read, the new Storm2 keyboard will behave more like the iPhone (no "sure type").
I'll pass on the new Storm (although my brother is extremely happy with his). I'm pretty happy with the Tour. It has its quirks (as does any Blackberry).
I'm not a big fan of the touch screen...although one of my employees has a Pearl flip, and the SureType predictive text software is actually very cool. I was pleasantly surprised as to how good and accurate it is. You just can't look at the screen when you type or else you get screwed up.
