    This is a great find P3...In my opinion, storm 2 just feels better in design...but I sure will play with one of those androids once all of them launch.

    I would really like to see him run opera on the storm, to really give a good comparison to browser speeds. I know he want to test it as it is, and like he said we all know the BB browser is way behind the times. But I would still be curious running a decent browser how the 2 would stack up.

    Love my S1 but with no upgrade or a talk of OS upgrade might switch to Droid when it comes out in India!

    Giving the presenter the benefit of the doubt, customization of the phone "out-of-the-box" are on different playing fields. Yes, you can always add a theme or change icons around on the BB, but the Droid customization options are nearly endless.

    I for one will be happy to stick with my S2.

    This is a pretty good review. As the reviewer noted it will come down to personal preference and what a user requires from a device. For the typical business user the Droid won't be able to touch the Storm 2 in the same way the iPhone doesn't come close. Email on the Droid, after using it for a bit, was rather unpleasant just as the iPhone experience is blah with email. Where if Blackberry does one thing right it is email. I also found the keyboard experience on the Droid to not be to my liking. The touch screen version is micro and for my large hands I couldn't get any accuracy. Perhaps that would change with more practice but I thought the same of the Tour and that never happened. The Storm 2 keyboard is light years ahead of where Storm 1 is. It really is a pleasant experience both in suretype and landscape mode. After having the Storm 2 for a little while know I average about 65wpm. And since I typically have to respond to 100+ emails the experience on the Storm is far superior IMO.

    The Droid to me is a cool gadget phone more suited for the consumer. It has a nice browser, you can customize the crap out of it and it has a very cool built in google maps application. But are those things I need or really care about, no, not really. The Droid to me is more in line with the iPhone and if I wanted a gadget consumer phone the iPhone IMO is a better experience. But at the end day it will come down to personal preference and what each user is interested in. As a business user I would not be happy with the Droid as it just doesn't do enough things right. Don't get me wrong the Droid is a nice device, it just didn't win me over to switch from a BB.

    yeah,he evidently didn't know you could have 4,8 or 12 icons on the home screen with the default theme.

    with all the reviews i have watched on the droid...and i think i have watched most of them,i haven't seen anyone use the onscreen landscape keyboard.everyone always uses the flipout. i think i will be using the onscreen keyboard in landscape the most.
