    Because it'll be about a year or so before it comes out and by then you can get ANOTHER annual upgrade!

    I dunno, maybe its me, but I gotta have the latest and greatest.

    If typing is the major issue, cough up a couple of bucks and buy yourself a copy of vlingo. It's a great little voice-to-text app, and the most recent version will work with most all applications (BBM, Google Maps, etc). It seems to get smarter the more you use it; as with all voice recognition software, the clearer you speak the better it works!

    There is a demo version on their website that will give basic SMS, dialing, tasks/notes, and web search for free, but for other uses you have to buy a license.

    I have a prettly long daily commute, and when using it in combination with drivesafe.ly (text-to-voice), and can listen to and reply to messages without ever taking my eyes off the road. For the most part, I only use the keyboard for short messages when talking to my phone might be innapropriate.

    This is true. I tried vlingo on my storm 1 and the only reason I didn't keep it is because I needed to free up some memory at: That shouldn't be a problem with the S2. It definitely gets better the more you use it.

The only issue I had with the Tour was the darned trackball. So I waited and got the S2 off of eBay a couple weeks before Xmas. I had the same issue with it as with the S1. I love the new screen, memory and features, but typing on a touch screen is not for me (finger tips are too big). I just can't deal with constantly having to correct my typing. So I'm back to my trusty Tour. Also, the Tour is much more responsive than either the S1 or S2. I've kept the OS updated on the S2 with every leak or hybrid I can find and it still isn't as responsive. The only thing I miss between the Tour as the S2 is the screen. But I'll sacrifice that over the ability to type faster. Hope this helps your decision. Bottom line, if you like features stick with the S2. If you like utility get a Tour. The S1 is not an option for me.

    I have to agree with you Bobby, even though I never tried the S2. I had the S1 and it made me crazy most of the time. I upgraded to the Tour and love it. Sold the S1 on Ebay less than a week later, don't miss it a bit. Fortunately my Tour has not had any trackball issues.

    ...yea, that is one of my biggest complaints with my S1, not enough memory!

    With vlingo and drivesafe.ly installed I have very little room left for other apps. I am constantly deleting this or that to make room to try something new.. however, I can say that I value these two so much that I never remove either one of them (..there are not many apps that I can say that of! ).
