Default Storm for $50 or Tour for $150 or WAIT?!!?

Please Login to Remove!

my contract is up in couple months. but i have to stick with verizon since other family members still have contract

so i will be getting new blackberry. (they let you renew contract if there is couple months left.)

ive read good amount of official reviews about storm and Tour.

and i saw Storm. but it looks pretty slow

1) but i was wondering is it still slow?? was there any updates that made it little faster?

2)i hear Tour is really fast and camera/ battery life is better. but is the difference that huge? and worth 100 bucks more?

3) should i just wait for Christmas?
will there be better phone deals?

1. OS .151 is pretty darn good on the Storm. The screen is just wonderful. It's not the fastest kid on the block.

2. Yes, the Tour is a great device

3. There will be a new Storm2 out in Oct., but it will likely be more like 199 w/contract.
