Touch screen is the next generation of UI. To use you hands versus pressing keys? just like voice command it uses you natural methods of communication, speech and touch. I know everyone doesn't like touch screen phones or computers, but its not being over-rated when your improving the quality of the experience. You can look at a lot of things and see that they are striving to improve the experience. 3D movies, touch screen computers and phones. cars that park themselves, hands free accessories, and even cell phones in the beginning (you can talk to anyone regardless where you are just as if they were right next to you). It all about using your natural elements to interact with the things you use most. There's is no reason to call touch screens over rated. like it was just said "its preference". Just as if I slam phone with keys as being over rated just because in has buttons. Its just silly.

Glad I got my Droid X !!! ::biglaugh::
Just an interesting update:
My brother when to exchange his storm2 (still had 30 days to exchange) to a droid x. As he walks in the verizon store the employee that helped us when he got the phone was there and asked him what he needed today. There just so happen to be a few people with suits on and verizon badges having a "pow-wow" in the middle of the store too.
This is how the conversation went:
Brother:"I want to exchange the storm for a droid X.
Employee:"Why? don"t you like the storm 2."
Bro:"I like the phone just fine, But I heard that the storm 2 wasn't going to be compatible with the new Blackberry 6".
Emp:"Where did you you here that?"
Bro:"I read about it"
(at this point one of the gentlemen from the group of suits, over hearing the conversation, glanced at my brother and the employee with a puzzled face. "thinking: how did you know that?" And gave a knod to the employee. being in agreement with my brother.)
I consider this conformation for me. though I hope there is still something for us storm 2 users to be happy about.
The funny thing is I bet he (the gentleman) just come out of a meeting the day before where it was announced that the storm 2 was not compatible with OS6:laugh2:
That is how quick this stuff leaks and hit the news. I bet someone in that board room was responsible for the leak...

Well I guess theres gonna be A LOT of disappointing BB owners. 90% of the devices wont support it. Time to start saving since I have 3 yrs on my contract with Telus. Save up and out right buy a new device. We will see what's up.:aargh4::aargh4:
RIM always makes shortcoming version! ST1 is an instance. ST1 does not have wi-fi even though RIM knows that! ST2 has wi-fi but just 256MB of RAM while RIM know that OS 6.0 can not run with low RAM --> ST3 releases and then,...ST4. This kind of trading like cheated.
Let's look at some other phones: Iphone, Droid, Nokia,...they always have new features, new technology,...while RIM just make shortcoming version...
Bye bye RIM
