I hope the same, bigtime. I've been ready to move to Android, just for that bigger screen, despite all that I like about my 8900. I have no worries about text entry on the Storm 2. Having had a Storm 1 for a short time, I know I can get a feel for it, and my hundreds of auto-texts will bring it right up to speed.
But following the link on the US release only takes me to an article about the UK release, so I'm not sure where blackberrycool is getting the story about T-Mobile US.
