i will have the storm2 on the day of release because i love the storm and the s2 will be the new kid on the block.
Given that most of us may be tied to long contract upgrade dates my main issue is the complete basement bargain price of the Storm and the two for one offers coming out for phone purchases. With the recent hybrid release for the Storm and I would expect continued leaks and upgrades, I can wait for the S2 to go through its entry pains and issues. I would also have to wait and see what accessories I’ve purchased for the S1 can support the S2. Find it very difficult to pour money into these devices that the manufacturer can’t see the need to have some common degrees of compatibility. Besides there are quite a lot of us Storm users in BBOS Nation that would not know what to do with their late nights if there were no leaks and upgrades coming from BBOS.

Current Storm has been greatly improved with the newest OS's, but these improvements have been using leaked OS's. I still don't think a person should have to go to as much work as Storm owners have had to in order to make their device work smoothly. While I have had fun tinkering and learning how to create my own personal Frankenstein's Monster, in the end as much as these devices cost they should work properly and smoothly straight out of the box.
If I break down and upgrade to a Storm 2, I'm going to be pissed if it is sluggish out of the box....
I wouldnt expect anything from vzw....
same here s1 is solid now...even with .148

For me,, Wifi is the killler feature for S2. Also next killer feature for me is 'Both NW always ON'. So I can use my personal GSM & Office 1x and still won't miss any calls.
Screen etc is not the deciding factor for me.
