this will be my first blackberry and i am super excited! before reading the review, my only skepticism about the storm stemmed from it not having a true keypad but i'm convinced it won't take much getting used to .. and adding a data plan should be an easy adjustment, too. i remember being this stoked about the fantastic voyage(r) last year. i absolutely love my voyager [except when the speaker started going bad a couple of months ago, but i took it to the vzw store and they gave me another one] and i'm totally prepared to love my blackberry storm just as much, if not more! i wonder if the storm will be made available for pre-order like the phones in last year's 'holiday line-up' .. i'm so looking forward to attacking the fed ex guy again when i hear him pulling up (haha.. j/k). i can use my annual upgrade on november 21st, hopefully this phone will be released on or by then. i can't wait!
