You say the storm runs a broader platform... I disagree... The 9700 and storm2 are almost the same. 9700 runs 5.0, I believe the storm does too ( maybe 4.7). Either way, basically the same. The 9700 is much better for typing, although the storm screen is bigger due to lack of keys...
Battery life will be much better on the 9700 due to smaller screen... And with the 9700, you don't have to worry about verizon crippling everything you wanna do
