    While I hated the touchscreen of the iPhone, the clicking mechanism of the Storm really works well for me. I do have a 8900 which has a great keyboard but between the two I like the Storm better. I will be getting the Tour just because I am BB addict but my daily phone will no doubt be the Storm and then Storm 2 when it's released. Either way you really can't go wrong it just comes down to a preference of physical keyboard versus touchscreen.

    Im waiting on the s2. I can not justify upgrading to a phone with a smaller screen and trackball. The storm was my first blackberry so I guess im kind of used to the touchscreen. Being that I have never used a phone with a trackball, the ole saying goes, "You cant miss nothing you never had." errrrr something like that.


    Also I went to check out a bold at the local att store and the button are so small and im used to rotating to landscape mode for a big qwerty keyboard. So to me the virtual keyboard is just something I have grown to like as opposed to only using your phone in portrait. idk

    +1 to that Dukin. I'm in the same exact boat. Only reason I really want a tour is so I can make themes for it. I hate making themes for phones I dont have.

    till u drop it once or twice and or it miraculously falls flat screen first and then built as expected... touch screens will always be inferior in strength to those not toucscreen... but over all the touchscreend offer usually bigger resolutions and a few more head aches... tho i have a curve.. and might i add that its the #1 bb in the world but nuff bout me.. lol i think the tour is ideal, after reading bbos, and brian's statements the touch screens r more a hastle then a need.. u r typing an email which on a storm will take u 45 min and on a full keypad will take u about 15.. less errors easier to make sure u r pressing not clicking.. im for the storm cause im baise and wont get a touch screen fone.. just an iTouch.. hehehehe :borladuck:

    Has it been stated whether the Storm 2 will be a Verizon exclusive again? I haven't heard anything on the arrangements. I'm trying to decide if I should just pull the trigger and buy the Tour or possibly wait for the Storm 2. I'm not going to switch carriers for the S2, so I'm inclined to just purchase the Tour immediately.

    Welcome to BBOS hAIZik. You will not be disappointed with the Tour.
