    Default Anyone else going to miss SurePress?

    I for one am really disappointed they are giving up on the sure press technology. I loved the concept and the storm 2 was headed in the right direction, just needed a bit more work to make the overall experience more smooth and polished. That's what I was hoping the Storm 3 would end up being, an OS 6.1 beast with a perfected SurePress screen.

    Does anyone else really want to see the SurePress again?

    I like SurePress since the Storm 1 was my first BB so I never used a physical keyboard. I will miss it, but I think we are in the minority.

    Storm 1 was my only BB I have ever owned and I love the surepress. I can't imagine a new touch screen without it, but I guess it will be gone.

    I will miss it. I played with a Thunderbolt this past week end, the whole phone kind of vibrates when you select a letter while typing. Very odd feeling, I didn't like it one bit...

    But what I really miss is being able to type and surf or do anything on this F'n P.O.S. Storm 1 I still have... BB, release the damn new phone already!!!

    I really miss it. I currently have a MotoDext (Storm1 contract and Dext was on sale no contract) and I have to always use the physical keyboard because I have to be really careful when typing on the screen. I've only found 8pen to be really useful, as even swype is too picky sometimes.

    I'm kind of disappointed SurePress is dead. After messing a bit with the OS, it worked really well on my Storm 2. SurePress is part of the reason I got the phone to begin with. Ah well. I'll give the Monaco a try when it hits the stores; otherwise, I'll be looking much harder at the Bold Touch.

    I thought I was going to miss SurePress, after having an S1 and an S2.

    Then I got my Droid X with Swype, and I can't imagine going back to that kludgy click screen on the Storms.

    RIM really dropped the ball by waiting so long to replace the S2. I think they may have lost the touchscreen market for good.

    Yes, I am going to miss the surepress. Something about knowing that I am connecting with the keys or not just randomly opening apps is very satisfying. I find myself on other touchscreens trying to make them 'click'. Ionatan - Go Man U!, don't you feel like "if" and not "when" for the Monaco? Getting tired of waiting, but won't buy anything else.

    Maybe... When surepress worked on my phone it was great. It is nice having that click to reassure yourself you touched the right thing. However, as my Storm 2 got older it became less and less responsive. I just had to replace it because the click was hit it miss too frequently. The replacement is great, so right now I think I might but then again, when the screen decides it doesn't feel like clicking it was EXTREMELY frustrating when you couldn't answer the phone or type a word.

    There is a big difference between suretype and surepress.

    Suretype is available on android by the way.

    Wasn't the release date finally announced though? I'm probably mistaken.

    Nice to see another red devil on here too.

    I'm definitely going to miss surepress. One of the reasons I went with the S2 in the first place. The trackpad is a nice edition though. I wish they just gave an option to turn surepress off since it is controlled by the software anyway.

    I will miss it. I like that "feedback" the click provided, however, I am getting so tired of waiting for LTE/Fast browser/QNX, I may be headed for the Bionic. Sad, but true!

    The only thing that you'll regret, is that you didn't do it sooner.

    I'll miss it. Went and played with iPhone 4 today and kept opening apps I didn't want to cause I touched screen in wrong place. Don't really want the iPhone, but if RIM's only goal is to be like the rest I guess it will be iPhone for me. At least Apple has their own app store and doesn't need Google app's.

    I won't.

    For one, the future of touchscreen devices evidently isn't clickable screens- since no other phones and zero tablets have it.

    I don't like them- tho at first I thought it was a cute novelty- because it is one more moving part and any moving parts add weak links in the chain- more oppurtunities to break down.

    My click screen S1 and now S2 suffer from low temperature days (fortunately not too many here in Texas) and my S2 screen "shorts out" and malfunctions during mornings with very high humidity.
    We do have those in south east texas. Tho the screens in the S2's are better than S1's, they still cause more harm than good so I feel I will welcome a normal non-click touch screen.

    We only have a few years to wait for RIM to release one.

    I means months.

    Or whatever.

    I thought I'd miss surepress but I don't-not at all. I first thought the Thunderbolt screen was too touchy, but it is like any other new devise, it just take a little time to adjust. Now that I am sailing across the screen and loading pages in an instant, it is hard to believe that I actually resisted the change because of wanting surepress.
