    I've been waiting for a new touch screen BB for a long time and this............this.......... I dont know how to feel. I'm excited its here but for $199? This isnt the Verizon exclusive Storm. I could go get one cheaper on a comparable network in my area. I decided to upgrade my device thru asurion to the 9550, which I'm loving all the app space and lack of keys. I figure the 9550 will be suffice till QNX, I had the 9530 almost 3 yrs and was content. I will be stopping in for sure to check one out. If anything, it will be my first of my early xmas gifts to myself.
