I've never had the 8900 but I did use a 8830 world edition for a year. As to typing, using he storm in landscape mode, the keys are definitely larger. It does require a bitof a learning curve to train your fingers to touch the right spot, but having the click screen ensures that you can see what your finger is selecting before you actually type the letter since the buttons light up when you hover your finger over them. I actually type just as fast on my storm as I did on my 8830 with the physical keyboard and having the large screen for web-browsing is a world of difference.

As to whether it is the right phone for you, it all depends on your own preferences. Just know that the storm is a new phone and may require some tweaking to get it where you like it. Personally, I have upgraded to 4.7.0.122 and have used the tips here on the forums to troubleshoot any issues that have come up. However, other than the occasional hiccup, my storm runs like a dream and I don't even remember how I got stuff done without it. Turn-by-turn navigation, movie times, calendar reminders, games, videos, web browsing, pictures, stock trading are just spme of the tasks that I use the Storm for and it is more than competent in completing those tasks.
