Default Storm 2 or Bold 2

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone, i posted this on the bold 2 forum, but thought it might be biased to post it only there.

I currently purchased a Storm 2 and have 5 more days to decide whether i want to keep the device or switch it out for something else. My other option would obviously be the bold 2.

I just wanted to know other peoples thoughts on this matter or if anyone else fell into this situation.

I do like the big screen on the Storm and the "touch", but the keyboard types funny things sometimes when im texting to friends. Telus just introduced their new HSPA+ network exclusively to the bold 2, so that plays a factor in the decision.

Thanks in advance for the advice,

I never used a Bold, but it looks like the ultimate BB with a real keyboard. I do have the Storm2, however, and can definitely recommend it. It has a few small software issues, but for the most part it is a visual and physical pleasure to use. The large screen is WONDERFUL and the SurePress; I love the fact that I can highlight a button with my finger and then press to receive my results...the feedback is great. The keyboard DOES get easier to use and as the dictionary "learns" the terms, abbreviations, and special names or expressions you use, the suggestive text becomes MUCH easier to use. When I got a new Pearl this past summer when my old one fried, I hated it at first because it kept bringing up words I didn't want...but after a week or so it was just like my old one.

I hope you stick with it, but I'm sure the Bold could satisfy too...I just like the BIG screen! Enjoy!
