I bet the Pre on the red network will outshine and sell both of those

People always compare the Pre and iPhone to the Storm and now the Storm 2. I personally hope that Verizon does get the Pre because it is an excellent device, but I sincerely don't consider any BlackBerry to be in direct competition with the Pre or iPhone. They are in some ways similar, but really in the end are aimed at a different type of user. The Storm is a great phone, as I'm sure the Storm 2 will be, but they are both Blackberrys with excellent multimedia capabilities. At the core you still have a BB and all that goes with it. The Pre and iPhone are great multimedia devices that also do email and applications very well. This "high end multimedia smartphone" is very much what Verizon's lineup is lacking, and the Storm does not entirely fill that void. Bring on the both of them, and make everybody happy!

I just hope the clicky screen is much improved over the first storm - I tried the Storm I (and I really did try to like it - I tried it for two weeks and used it a lot trying to get used to it) but in the end I returned it. I've got the Pearl Flip and like it a lot - it's just a little slow and the screen is a little small. So, I'm hoping this phone is all that it's cracked up to be.

i love the clicky thing. i can type faster on my storm than i could on my voyager. the auto text and auto complete feature help a lot :-)
