the heck w/ the TiVo! LOL...I'm definitely getting and already have all of the accessories ordered. I actually had the pleasure of a sneak peek of the Storm today in person and got to play with the device for about an hour. I admit, when you switch from portrait to landscape the response time is a little slow, but given all the features it has on it, it is truly awesome! The whole capacitive touch screen, it's beyond anyone's imagination, IT ACTUALLY CLICKS! lol...it's tiny, it's thin, very sexy device. only if i could post a pic on here. Even the mute and lock(standby) buttons on top are like others, NO ACTUAL BUTTONS (with the exception of the convient keys on the sides). The most awesome thing is that VCast music software is coming near you available for download once it's ready, can't wait!

I am not sure. I'm in between the storm and the touch pro, and I want to use both devices before making a decision.

the one thing that annoys me about verizon's touch pro is that the up arrow separates the M and N keys. NO PRO FOR ME.

I ALREADY HAVE A STORM ON RESERVE AT THE LOCAL SEATTLE STORE! I ABSOLUTELY DESPISE THE TRACKBALL OR JOGWHEEL FOUND ON MOST BLACKBERRY'S BUT LOVE THE OS. I CURRENTLY HAVE THE DARE AND HAVE LEARNED TO LOVE TOUCH BASED DEVICES. THIS PHONE WILL APPEAL TO ALL PARTIES WHO WANT STYLE AND PRODUCTIVITY ALL IN ONE ATTRACTIVE PACKAGE.... I PROUD TO BE AMONG ONE OF THE FIRST TO OWN A VZW BB STORM.......

Go for what you really want instead of settling for something you don't. :)

since you talkedabout price can you tell me something I have had a moto Q for a year and i want to get the storm but dont wanna pay a bajillion dollars for it... how much do you think i will have to pay?

If you've had it for a year, you may be eligible for an annual upgrade. Also depending on your rate plan you may be a VIP member and can get $50 off with no early upgrade fee. ALSO if you go from the Q to the storm you may end up paying more per month for the BB data package. call VZW and see what your options are.

It depends what price plan you are on $59.99 or higher can get an early upgrade. It will be the two year discount price if you can, and if you are buying outright it will be around $550.00. Hope I was helpful.

Hate to break it to you, but it is a price plan that is $49.99 or higher

u lucky b***h....i guess imm just waiting until Dec 8th for my NEW EVERY 2 so hopefully ill be able to get it for just $50 bucks but by then the Omnia might be out so it might be a hard decission ....i have been watching countless videos of all these phones and im almost certain that THE BLACKBERRY STORM HAS THE BEST ACCELEROMETER TO DATE!!!!

WiFi is a dealbreaker for me, so no Storm.

With a BB you have to have the internet package & the storm is rev A & Verizon's 3g coverage area is huge. so that was kind of dumb
