I am trying to decide between The Bold and The Storm. My main uses on the phone would be web-surfing and some e-mailing. Is the big touch screen and finger scrolling better for this? I am aware of some of the problems that this has had, but believe that firmware updates are sorting them out.(I also like the gimmick of a touch screen though) I really like the look of The Bold and like a physical keyboard.I also believe the web browsing isn't as easy on The Bold. Is that correct? What should I do? Any help is appreciated!

The Bold has less software issues at the moment and may be the best phone out of any phone on the market imo. However, the Storm, is also very nice, and has a nice large touch screen, and better camera. The main difference are, the Bold has wifi and qwerty keyboard, whereas the Storm has a better camera, and nicer, larger screen. I love them both, with the recent improvements on the Storm's os with .122 os, it's definitely improving. If you already like the physical keyboard, you should stick with the Bold, or wait for the Blackberry Niagra, which is a smaller sized Bold, with a better camera.

Thanks, for the info. I was beginning to think I wasn't going to get a response. I like the idea of the physical keyboard, but it's definitely not the be-all-and-end-all. I like my gimmicks and really like the idea of a touch screen. I've have heard mixed reviews about the Sure-Press. Some people love it and say it doesn't affect their type speed, but then you get some who say it's useless. How do the two compare in terms of ease of use for web-browsing. I've had a little play on a Storm and found it fairly easy. However, I haven't been able to have a look at The Bold. I am so confused and appreciate any more help you can give me! Thanks
