Default Good riddance Storm

Please Login to Remove!

Got my new Tour today. Very glad to be back in the land of the real keyboard. Someday RIM will figure out how to develop a slide out keyboard to work with a Storm-sized screen. Until then, this is about as good as it gets (on Verizon at least).

Very nice size and weight (smaller/lighter than Storm)
Surprisingly nice keyboard
Camera
Excellent screen (the Tour demo video is really amazing)

And I can sell my Storm for about what I paid for the Tour. What a great day.

Good to hear that you are enjoying your new Tour ... I am enjoying mine as well.

Me too. Best BlackBerry (for Verizon) I have ever owned.

I feel the same way. I ceremoniously destroyed my Storm (used a hammer) in front of several of my co-workers. It's good to have a real Blackberry back in my hands.

While I won't bash the Storm, I'll say I don't think it's *quite* ready for primetime just yet and it wasn't working out very well for me. I've had my Tour for a couple of days now and I couldn't be happier with it. I still make myself laugh every now and then when I try to wake it by pressing on the screen though...

Be careful with what you wish for....RIM may here you.

Speaking of the camera the Tour's is much faster than the Storm. Also glad to hear you are happy with your phone.
