I have a 9650 (because my Storm2 had a problem with voice quality). The 9650 has been out for quite a while and it really is not a "new" phone because all they did was increase the memory and change to a track pad.
Look at all the new Android phones coming out and they have some very interesting features. If I can be sure that I will be able to reliably sync with Outlook, RIM will consider me history. If they would actually come out with a Storm3 (rather than just rumors) they would keep my business.
