    WoW, where was this thread when i was debating (still am) between the droid and the S2. P3, ur first post is exactly how I felt when I played w/ the S2 two days ago. I loved how the screen feels when typing, but other than that I felt like everything else was just the same as S2. When I heard about the wifi problem on BIS, i was sure I would switch out of BB and possibly go with the droid. I've had WinMO previously, S1 is my first BB and I love how "staying in touch" is so possible with BB via the quickness of the e-mails and BBM. I think BB might b the OS for me, I say might b 'cause I feel RIM can still make it better.

    Starting with apps, I feel like BB needs more app developers and apps. Sure there's a good number of apps out there, and I'm not talking about for youtube or media related, i'm talking about traveling, info search, like train schedules, I go to NYC quiet often and wish there was an app for the train schedule (with a good UI) instead of using the web in mobile view to get the info. I feel like there's little things RIM is missing that's making BB experience even better (maybe i'm the only one who feels this way)

    I've always been a touchscreen user, so for me the only option is Storm or Droid. But i'm tired of typing on S1, i find myself not wanting to reply to e-mails or txts or BBM because of how the screen feels. When i was using the S2, I felt like I would have no problem with replying, but still something is making me hold back from upgrading and i think that something is the fact that S2 is no different than S1 (other than typing and wifi) and I too suffer from "wanting a change". I've had the S1 for a yr, i've played with it, am bored with it, want something new to keep my interest going........

    Wat to do.....wat to do...
    O btw, I love the look of the S1/S2. It just looks smooth and finished. I haven't seen another phone that I felt looks so complete (cosmetic wise) like the Storm

    PS, jlevy, where can I find your review of the Droid. I've been trying to find info from a BB user on what they thing about the Droid.

    There are reviews all over the internet for the Droid. Google Motorola Droid reviews and a bunch should pop up.

    pcmag.com has one and so does cnet.com

    yea i've read most of the reviews and videos...but idk wat it is, just can't seem to grasp if I would like the droid UI or not lol. Usually I read a few reviews and I can make up my mind...but with this, I'm still debating. I think for me the only way to know is to play around with it once it comes out. I def won't get the Motorola, don't like the way it looks (the outside). I would wait to see wat others will have, like HTC and even Dells phone looked nice, but a bit too big lol.

    As much as I hate to say it - I'm with you Cat. I was eagerly awaiting the S2, hoping for something new to blow me away, but after foolin with it for a bit - I wasn't impressed much - didn't see a huge difference from what I have already,besides memory. I've been watching the Android scene closely,and now I am definitely ready to switch teams.
    Don't get me wrong,I love my BB,always have,but it's just time for a change.
    I WILL have to play with for a bit first,just to make sure!

    I will be taking the Droid for a test drive. If i dont like it will go with the storm 2. I just need something different and i want a better web experience then BB can offer. I am a bit worried on how it handles email, contacts, tasks, and memos as those are all the things that BB does very well. Like i said test drive and if i dont like it, it will only cost me $35 to switch over to S2.
