View Poll Results: What device should I get?
- 21. You may not vote on this poll
Touch Pro or Storm
So it's time for me to get a new phone I've boiled it down to two phones:
HTC Touch Pro or Blackberry Storm
Both are the same price for me so that's not a factor
Things I like about the storm:
Google synchronization rocks
8GB card comes with it
3.5mm headset jack
Things I like about the Pro
Tons of Custom Roms to choose from to customize the phone
free teathering via Internet connection Sharing program (which is also free)
"Hackability" of Windows Mobile
The Storm by far is a sexy device but the HTC is far more customizable.
So my question is what do you guys think I should get. I know this is a Blackberry forum but please at least try to keep the answers objective and provide reasons for your suggestion.

My wife had the same decision to make and BB messenger was the deciding factor for her and
Like you said the bigger screen.

this late in the game if youre thinking about a storm you might as well hold off a little bit for the storm 2. its supposed to be coming out pretty soon. personally (and this is just me thinking out loud) ive never been too impressed with winmo. i dont know, ive just always been partial to the BB os.
you would think that an OS similar to what ive been using on a pc would be a no-brainer, but not for yours truly. nope i just cant seem to play well with winmo devices.

I have had 3 Touch Pros , 1 Alltel and 2 Verizon.
Dont waste your time , Storm is a far supperior device and I loved win mobile too but Storm crushes the TP imo. Especially if you are thinking about the Verizon TP (it stinks). If you want a Verizon Windows Mobile device get the Omnia, it has been my favorite Windows Mobile device thus far...

I would go with the Storm. I have had two windows mobile phones. This is my first BB and I am immensely happy with it.
My husband has a Touch Pro and says the operating system difference should be what you base your decision on.

EDIT , towards the end of my TP I had a super strong preference for 6.5 Not sure what the concencus is now a days but a couple of months ago , 6.5 was tops.

Friend of mine has the TP and I have my BB... I love the size of the blackberry vs the touch, and I don't like any phone that comes with a stylus....
I also don't like the slide out keyboard, but that's just a personal preference also...
He's new to WinMo and has some issues, he'd love to customize his phone more, but hasn't figured out exactly how to do that yet, and it has weird issues with windows media player lol. I am so not impressed with it at all.
