    Hey everyone

    I have a bold 9000 right now and I'm thinking of trading it for a 9550. What do you guys think about this? I love my 9000 but the trackball and the size are starting to bug me. Has anyone here had both? I'm leaning towards getting the 9550..

    Thanks !

    I don't think the size will be any better. But having 9550 with 256MB and a big touch screen will be definitely a great experience.

    I would also choose the Storm 2. The Bold 9000 is great, but the Storm 2 is definitely better.

    I have both. For work, 9000 no question. Works flawlessly. Great keyboard. No bugs. Fast. Excellent speakerphone. 9550 for everyday with reservations. Slower. Laggy. Doesn't matter which hybrid. Not losing your eyesight is nice. Big screen is nice. Camera is fantastic.

    i Love my 9000. I miss it. The form factor is great (keyboard size). The 9550 is what I'm using now. I lov eit just as much. I did have les issues with the 9000, but nothing a hybrid on the 9550 cant fix. I love both.

    My 9550 isn't laggy at all. I came from a physical keyboard (the 8330) and couldn't be happier. I can't imaging going back to a smaller screen or a physical keyboard.

    If you want to stay with the physical keyboard however, I would look at the 9700 or the 9650.

    I have both and haven't really touched my 9000 since I got my Storm 2. It is easier to type on the Bold, it is a faster phone and battery life it better but I just prefer using the Storm. The Apps and browsing are so much better in a big touchscreen.

    I went from a 9000 to an S2 and don't regret the switch.

    Loved the Bold, but really wanted a bigger screen and a touch interface. Was a little concerned with typing, but at this point can actually type fast on the S2.

    Think it really comes down to wanting a touch device or not...
