    I think I saw someone else post that they think the next BB should be a tour with a touch screen.

    I could go for that. I love my screen real estate on my storm, but hubby's curve isn't "too" small. And every time I use it, I find myself using the trackball for some things and reaching for the screen for others. I think that could be cool. Would also lighten the load with a smaller screen... I'm always jealous of how light his phone is.

    Hi guys, my contract on o2 uk expires next month, and i was about to upgrade to Bold 9700, but now after i have read a lot more positive reviews about S2, i was swaying towards that, due to screen size. But now im reading that S3 will probably be shown at WES in April, i am getting somewhat confused. The webkit browser looked great and we know that this will hopefully hit this summer on 9700 first then S2.

    Now reading your S3 stuff, i have been blown away, and am sure that this configuration is what most BB users have been waiting for to stop us falling behind to Apple and Android.
    My question is that, if S3 shows at WES they wont probably release it until October/November, therefore i am thinking of going to S2 then maybe going with the S3 at the end of the year, unless some of you guys know that S3 is hitting earlier which may delay my upgrade,

    The first thing I noticed about the Storm 3 is how much thinner it is then the 9550. Think iPhone thin. It also felt considerably lighter but I did not have enough time to break out my triple beam. There were reports from bbleaks that the boot up time was much faster and indeed it is. I counted to myself and it was 20 seconds from the time I pressed the on button to being fully powered up. Let me discuss the screen for a moment. It is the best screen I have ever seen. The color and resolution is fantastic. Compared to the Moto Droid sitting next to it, blew it out of the water. The UI is different. I cannot get into specifics, but Storm 3 does widgets

    Something else I noticed was the speed of processor. I don't know what is under the hood but it was smoking fast even with the beta OS being used. It beat the Droid on every task I threw at it. Hands down the fastest phone I have used.

    Now here is where it got cool. Adobe flash was incorporated into the browser and I have to say I was super impressed. Compared to mobile safari, this is better. Full desktop quality rendering of pages. While it looked better pages rendered slightly faster on the iPhone 3GS but faster than the Moto Droid. Another nice addition is tabbed browsing. It is implemented very cleanly into the browser UI.

    The camera has been upgraded and is rocking a 6MP beauty. Photos I took on it were fantastic. Available RAM has been increased to 512mb, a nice bump for sure. I wasn't able to see what the SD card was so I have no idea there.

    IMO this phone outperforms the Droid in all areas except for available apps (BB APP World is still very small). There were no games installed so I couldn't determine how well this phone performed from a gaming standpoint. Maybe on Round 2 I will be more lucky.

    Just when I was about ready to give up on RIM, I am pleased to see the huge strides they have made not only from a hardware but also software perspective.

    P.S. Rumors of this having a slider are completely false. There are and were never any plans on combining this phone with a slide-out Qwerty.

    Update: I got a few more minutes with the device today so a few extra things of note.

    1. The version of the ever popular google maps with turn by turn voice navigation was loaded and worked beautifully.
    2. The phone is 4G compatible
    3. Internally the phone is known as S3-i1 however a newer prototype to be finished shortly will be dubbed S3-d5.
    4. RIM is trying to finalize the software and hardware so it can makes it's public debut during WES, April 2010
    5. The phone will be released this year and is being marketed to compete directly against the Android.
    6. The model number for the S3 = 958*
    Hi having read most of you posts, i would say that you are very well informed. Now that you have had a chance to assess the N1 and the Desire do you still think that the S3 still is better.
    I would appreciate your comments.

    I wonder what we are more likely to see first... the Storm 3 or VZW release the Tour 2/Bold... I guess we can only wait and see.
