The thing is a clunker, laggy, freezes, typing is a chore, a grave mistake going to android from a BB OS.
Thought I'd hijack your thread and bad mouth this marvel of technology... :D
My wife has had a MyTouch for a few days now, and so far, I'm impressed. I've played with it a bit and don't find it to be any more laggy than my 8900--possibly less so. I haven't seen it freeze yet, either. I'm not used to the onscreen typing, so I agree that it is harder than the 8900, but I realize there's a learning curve to it. I much prefer auto-text to predictive text.
I might consider getting one of these, but not until I've seen how it holds up under regular use for a while. In particular, I want to see how battery life is.
Although I've had BBs for almost two years now, my general impression of the BB OS isn't that positive, although I think OS 5 is a step in the right direction.
