It depends on your use of a Blackberry.
If it's for cool apps and lots of space...give 'er.
If it's for sending lots of Texts/Emails...don't.
I used to type: 66wpm Computer, 33wpm Blackberry-2thumbs, 15wpm one thumb
I now type...21 wpm Storm-2thumbs.
My next Blackberry will definitely have a QWERTY keyboard....

I like my Storm, but I would recommend it. You already have a Bold which means that it helps your business (?). If you want a touchscreen toy, then you should choose iPhone or wait one-two-three years for the Storm 2.

I had to dump my bold since my coverage was pathetic so decided to try the storm, I email a lot ... I now have two of them. Just make sure your screen is very easy to click before leaving the store - not sure if it is a newer model internally but my first one was quite hard to press, especially near the edges - the second one was super light no matter where you clicked so I swapped out the first one. VZW said it was a bad screen, I think its just newer and better hardware coming out now.

I like it anyway, fast enough - awesome screen. OS sucks as it does with all RIM devices right now so ... my bold wasn't anymore stable.
