    Is it just me or has something changed

    Is it just me or has anyone else almost lost complete interest in their storm1. So I went to play with the storm2 and realized while at the store that I am just not as interested in my phone right now.

    I just want a new device, I feel let down by RIM and I just now with the .323 update started to really like my phone again but I think its just too late. I tried the Tour, Bold, and I have a Curve 8330. I Think, I just want to play with something new and the Storm 2 just didn't seem new and thus my storm 1 doesn't seem interesting.

    My .02.


    Have a great weekend and only 6 days left.

    No more friend you are not alone. Many other BB users will follow suit. I wrote a little mini review on the Droid as I had a chance to play with it this morning. It was nice for sure, but there were a few things that killed for me. So for now, for my purposed I will be staying BB on the 9550

    I hate hate myself for getting tired of things but I do love the ability to tinker with my S1 but is the 9550 truely much of an upgrade, and a new experience. I am afriad that I will be unable to live without BBM, but I just have to try the device myself.

    What I didn't like about the android I love with S2. What I really don't care that much about the S2 does ok at while the Android does well. The typing on the S2 is greatly improved while I found the Droid typing experience to be not to me liking. I should preface this by saying that I have large hands and the android has a very small keyboard. I really couldn't type one sentence without making a lot of errors. The Droid is an awful phone something that really is surprising considering it is on vzw. But in my 30 minute test run with the phone it failed. The Droid also doesn't do email very good, something that I require big time. It pushes gmail which I never use and pulls everything else. It it supposed to pull every 5 minutes but I had to force pull it which I found unacceptable.

    Jlevy, this is pretty much what I expected. The droid is a nice little flashy device. But does it really do what a true BlackBerry user would need it to do? I seriously doubt it. Does it have a kickass OS, yes. But I use my BB for about 75% email. There is no way that the Droid will be able to match the BlackBerry email experience. Just no way. I can live without a fancy OS. I have all the apps I need on my BlackBerry. And getting an email seconds after the person on the other end hits send is a big factor.

    I will most likely stick with RIM and wait for that touch/QWERTY combo device.


    P.S. Almost a year later and I still love my Storm.

    You guys are right about the email experience on the BB. I don't know how that will play out, its just that I was underwhelmed by the S2, but I think I may let it grow on me.

    I posted it in another thread but I agree. S2 is not new enough. Would I like one, sure. Would I use an upgrade or go through the hassle of adding/ dropping a line. Still debating. I'm seriously considering picking up the 8530 when it comes out on VZW. That way when I feel like using a physical keyboard I've got it and when I want touch I've got it. I think the trackpad will be "new enough" to pick up and I always liked my trusty 8330.
