Okay, I've had my storm for 5 days now, and believe me after reading all the negative reviews and ranting and "I'm returning my storm" post, I almost didn't do it. I was about to go from curve to bold, then I remembered I like to live on the edge so I took the plunge into the storm...
I have to say, all those naysayers need to go fly a kite. I LOVE MY STORM and outside of a manufacturers fault, I will never return it. I can't keep my hands of it. Granted I got mine with .75 preloaded so maybe I escaped all of the initial frustrations, but even so, we all know that every OS will address most current complaints. So it will just keep getting better and better.
The biggest challenge was typing on the touch screen, but I knew there would be a learning curve BEFORE I bought it. I'm getting more proficient as every day goes by with the touchscreen. I'm so confused by all those people returning because they can't type as fast as they could on their older models...ummmm, do they realize in 2 years EVERY mobile device would be touchscreen.
I am a bit slower at typing, mainly because I just got the device, but it does prevent me from typing while driving at night on a wet road... so that a bad thing, I think not.
All in all I am ecstatic over my new blackberry storm, and it far exceeds the capabilities of all my past 4 BB models. And once again, RIM has made a believer of me.
