You know, I was playing with a Pre the other day at the Sprint store, and I have to say, not so impressed, and well, I was never impressed with the Iphone. I had high hopes for the Pre, knowing that Palm is near the end of days. I seemed unfinished, like it was rushed, for some unknown reason. The edges sharp, the UI seemed somewhat counter-intuitive, and it felt almost cheap/plasticy. I read all the reviews, wanted to believe, and yet, am somehow let down. I was with Sprint, working retail during the down years, when I knew someday it might be their last hurrah, so they always have a special place in me, I'd like to see them succeed, and I have to root for the underdog Palm because... well it's PALM! I just don't know, Pre... you could have been something phenomenal. I'll wait for a new Web OS device; there is potential.
But back to topic, I agree that RIM should put out a must-have device, but I don't think there needs to be any rush on a Storm 2. RIM kept strong with the business market in the beginning, they got into the personal market with the Pearl/Curve, and now they are in it. Even if they lose personal customers, they still are THE choice when it comes to Corporations. They can go a while without a new device if it means coming out with a flashy, cool, actual "IPhone Killer". The Tour will tide me over, giving me (hopefully) the stability I lost with the Storm, and then the Storm 2 should come along and seal the deal and show the Apple how the real Cellphone Manufacturers play. :evil:
