For your needs, if you like touch devices, its the way to go for now. Remember, your device looks and feels like a smartphone should. Carrying around a Torch is reminiscent of a $29 buy/one/get one free handset. It really has an awful form factor of cheap feeling and looking components, and will go the way of the original At&T Torch (thrown under that bridge), not even half way thru your contract. I don't expect much from RIM anymore as it pertains to QNX either. They do not respond very well to the competition and have developed a pattern of mis-steps that is pervasive.

The Iphone platform still rocks over BB with the addition of ICloud service and the Siri feature. They miss the boat, however, on two fronts. Could have made the device with a larger screen, and the built in battery is a game breaker for anyone out in the field, with a low battery level and no tether accessory. Put the dead phone back in your holster. Amazing design. No replaceable battery.

So, everyone bashes the Storm series. I like mine, have learned to master it, and need the feel of a solid device in my hand. Until someone gets their act on straight and releases a device with high qaulity build, great screen resolution, and performance numbers to match, you could be doing a lot worse.

Hey, your also a storm survivor!
