Default Cursor insertion on the Storm?

Not my original post, so whoever came up with this one gets the kudo's. you can mess with the settings a little, but "key rate" set to fast makes a worls of difference, and the shorter hover and tap periods make typing a breeze by comparison to the original settings.
innovator1, thanks for the great review. One question that has made me hesitate when considering the Storm: when you are entering text, and need to go back and make a correction, how do you insert the cursor between two letters. I tried this briefly at a Verizon store demo unit and could not figure it out. Even with slim fingers, I couldn't regularly get the cursor between the two letters I wanted....then, if I miss by one letter, there is no dpad or trackball to move it, so I'm forced to try yet again with my fingernail to put the cursor in the right spot. This is one thing that keeps the Omnia on my decision list -- it has the optical mouse to help with this. Is it easier on the Storm than I think it is?
