Olie, thanks for the kind words! I ended up with the Storm, and am very happy. There is a lot of info on the BB 9500 Storm thread elsewhere on this site (and on crackberry.com) that provides a number of workarounds to a lot of the Storm's issues. For example, if you're typing on the landscape virtual KB faster than the Storm seems to be able to keep up, there is a GREAT fix discussed in the 9500 thread about resetting the default settings for tap and hover speed, screen sensitivity and other stuff that will GREATLY improve your typing speed and accuracy. Check it out!
