Default Is the storm a good choice for me?

Please Login to Remove!

Okay so I've had my pearl for a while now and I'm really considering getting a storm. I'm hearing a lot of mixed feelings about it though. If it uses suretype that's not a problem I can type just fine with that on my pearl. My biggest issue with the pearl is the trackball just doesn't stay clean and functioning properly long all the time. Especially with the type of work I do my hands are always dirty and the trackball is too touchy to even slightly oily fingers. That and I really wouldn't mind a larger screen and what not. Only real conserns are how reliable the phone is. Heard a few people say it's kind of glitchy. And is the typing really as bad as people are making it out to be? i consider myself a fairly quick typer in general but if it just takes a little bit of getting used to that's not so bad. Just wanted some opinions as to whether or not it sounds like a suitable phone. Any other cons to this phone I'm missing?

Surprisingly the only thing I really like about the phone is typing in landscape mode.
