And playing with the Storm1 doesn't really qualify you have truly "used it". There's a big difference between the two, and Storm2 does work great. I used the Storm1 almost a year, and on the Storm2 now for six months. I can authoritatively state an opinion on both devices.
And of course, it's only your opinion that more hate it than like it. I don't think you've seen any quantitative data on that.
I totally agree.
I had the Storm 1 and hated it. While going through several phones lately I was real skeptical to give it a try but all of the great reviews convinced me to try it. I've always been a keyboard guy and have never been one for a touch screen but I was surprised how quickly I fell in love with it.
I can type much faster on this than any other blackberry I've ever owned. Personally, I love the click screen as it allows me to be precise with what I want to select and no more accidental typing. I've tried the iphone and droid but I was constantly making mistakes because it picked up on every little press. I don't have that problem now.
With that said, the only think I can see that would make the Storm II better would be a track pad/ball and faster speed. I still often find myself waiting for stuff to happen. The track pad would also help with quick "enter" and easier text selecting.
