Default Buy Tour - Or Wait and see what Storm 2 is like...

Please Login to Remove!

Well.,

Tough decision. I broke my Curve the other day and have been using my backup Pearl. The Pearl does suck. Other than its size it has no positives.

So I have been waiting to see what the Storm 2 will feel like before I buy the Tour. My question is this... Should I even bother. I have been waiting for almost 2 whole weeks now. What's a few more days... But again should I even be bothering myself with the idea?

The Storm 2 is very close. I would wait. Hopefully the initial OS runs well.

I am curious to see how that new storm is going to be, but I still love having the full keyboard and don't think a touch screen phone will ever be able to compete with that.

I personally like a physical keyboard, even if from watching the videos of the 9550 the lag is gone.

I love physical keypads myself, but the Storm 2 is worth a look. If the changes are as big as they sound, this could be the first virtual keypad I would consider usable.

I don't think the accuracy of a physical keyboard will ever get good enough enough for me to switch......
