Default Verizon: BlackBerry Curve vs. HTC Touch Pro and/or Diamond

Please Login to Remove!

I have a BlackBerry Curve with Verizon and am more than pleased with all the features and ease of use, and most of all: the physical keyboard. I got the LG Dare the day it was available online, and yeah it was fun for a day or two, but the "touch screen" was awful in comparison to the iPod Touch/iPhone. Which brings me to my next point... I have been following HTC phones for the past few months, and now that the HTC Touch Pro is available on Verizon I am considering upgrading... or waiting for the Touch Diamond in January, and then upgrading. So for those of you who have HTC touch screen phones: is the screen comparable to the iPhone's? If you have the Touch Pro: how is the keyboard? Any problems with Windows Mobile? Can it compare to the BlackBerry Curve?
Verizon's Touch Pro is only available online and won't be in stores till Dec. 1, and the Touch Diamond won't be released till January, so I'd need to start saving my money now! (Touch Pro is $419.99 WITH new 2yr )

(Note: I am a college student and do not need to use the phone for business purposes, just pleasure.)

I have only played with the HTC phones in the store. I have to say that I wasn't too impressed with ease of use. That could just be because I am so used to BB too.

I have owned several windows mobile phones. They have some very cool features and are very configurable/customizeable..but very unstable. I used to have to do a battery pull a couple of times a day . If you go to win mobile you will miss the rock steady perfomance of your curve.
