Thanks for the well wishes on my Android Galaxy Nexus. It sure has a large learning curve and a lot of complexity. For all the "slams" on my Storm, I still find it useful for business and the email client is in a class by itself. I use AOL and those emails hit the device the instant it does so on my PC. That's real time effectiveness. Its actually performing better now since taking the stress off of it with phone calls relegated to my new device. So, my BB resides in a holster right next to the "new game in town."

Continued productivity with your Torch. I have doubts the "dive" has reached bottom with RIM stock valuation. Its not only the PlayBook disaster resulting in their pathetic position in the mobile communication business. The lack of support and vision reacting to advances by the competition is their main failing. Even when QNX releases, if in fact it does, they will require peripheral support in the way of applications and developer participation for this new platform to get off the ground. The absence of it will be the game breaker for many in the business world, as well. RIM has a dubious track record of making un-kept, inaccurate promises.

Regardless, I still enjoy my "packed" 9550 and kind of know it well. Wouldn't want to leave my null exceptions and 10 minute reboots on my desk as a paperweight.

Happy holidays to all from the StormSurvivor!
