the 8900 is rock solid IMO. really well built. At least from my experience I disagree with the Storms quality. I just counted and since Nov 21st I have gone through 12 Storms. I have gone through more Storms than Hugh Heffner goes through girlfriends. Whether its dust under the screen, bad click, compatibility issues with hardware, etc etc., I give the Storm a big thumbs down in terms of build. But that is just my experience others are still on Storm #1. SO I guess it's just a matter of getting lucky, but build quality and luck shouldn't be used in the same sentence IMO.

True, even I'm on my 3rd. However, to me it just feels sturdier. The actual quality does vary.
#1 here since 8:00am on 11/23

#1 for me. I got mine in december and it has taken about 10 good solid falls and it is still running strong.
Although I always love your help, comments and especially your excellent Hybrids, please do not take this the wrong way bbcrackman, but I thought I clearly stated that my thoughts were for those individuals out there that had a Storm and were thinking about trying or buying the Tour. Maybe my wording was off and I will fix the original post.

Since the Tour can play music, videos and take pics as well be on my companies BES than I consider that a blend just like my Storm.
I apologize to all those that read my thoughts and did not get the information that they needed while conducting their research on the Tour.
Again, I was just voicing what I personally experienced with my Tour and Storm.
Thank you guys!

I know everyone here appreciates your reviews on the Tour and from what I have seen most that are buying the Tour are coming from the Storm. So your reviews are very relevant. Please keep them coming as I for one love reading them :fing02:
Thank you Bryan. I really appreciate your words. I had read his post last night before bed and it stayed with me.
