although not the success RIM or the public desire, fact is they are making a STORM4 sometime down the road. A 4th versuion of anything anywhere has to be close to success. RIM at one point was the best, maybe not right now, but they will return as king very soon. BLACKBERRY just works. I own a Droid Incredible.

You mean the Land before time series, or the Razor phone, or...multiple attempts DOES NOT=success. Storm isn't receiving little adjustments, it is being overhauled each time with enough suckers to warrant another try.

and you are obviously brain dead to think a Blackberry will return as "king", while owning a Droid Incredible. Someone should take that out of your possession for being under the influence of stupidity.

I would have agreed with you a year ago, but the Storm & Storm2 have come along way. I sell for VZW & I HATED the Storm and now I coincidentally have the Storm2, which I love... The 5.0 OS makes a huge difference in performance and makes the phone what it should have been all along. It isnt perfect, but still a great, formidable smartphone. You should go play with one or read the forums before you volunteer to put the nail in the Storm's coffin...

"a STORM4 sometime down the road. A 4th versuion of anything anywhere has to be close to success" "RIM at one point was the best, maybe not right now, but they will return as king very soon." should it really take until the fourth generation to make the storm a success??? And also, "to be “perfect” this time around.". Isn't that what they said after the second storm announcement???

By perfect you mean that it doesn't "click"? They should drop the Storm name and start fresh.

Stop with the "sure press" you idiots at RIM. Just make it capacitative touch like the public really wants, and like what other makers are already doing!!! What jackasses.

Seems the sure press has a sizable following. But you're right, I wasn't crazy about SP the 6 or so times I played with it. I was very ready to by a storm 2 until I heard of the htc INC. I can't remotely consider that now.

I'm a Blackberry Storm1 early adopter (waited in line in 2008) and upgraded a little over a year later to the Storm2. Love them both. Their shortcomings are annoying only from the standpoint that it seemed like half-measured-incremental improvements. I love, love, love the click-screen. The ability to select by touch, and press to execute is perfect for me. I'm glad Storm3 rumors are brewing and hope the product-line is continued by RIM.

LMAO! Nope. I use the SureType keyboard in while holding the 9550 in "portrait". Works perfectly with my big thumbs and I type plenty fast. I really don't have any issues with the screen (especially on the 9550). My gripes are with occasional lags in responsiveness. Otherwise, I'm one of the happy storm users.
