    Who upgraded to the storm2? How much quicker is it than the S1? Is it worth paying for the upgrade?

    S2 has more memory than the S1. that alone is worth trading up--besides, the screen tech is better for typing.

    EDIT: DOH! as someone mentioned below--the S2 also has WiFi.

    I will be getting my S2 Thursday. Can't wait to see what all the hype is about..... the S1 I have right now is running perfectly fine and have never had any issues with it.

    I got mine about 3 weeks ago and there is no comparison... It is like a different phone... Just the screen response and speed is worth the upgrade...

    s1: no wifi, less memory, actual buttons for send/bbmenu/return/end keys
    s2: wifi, more memory, "touch" keys for the main buttons, 3d games (opengl)

    Once you pick it up, you'll realize that the Storm 2 is what RIM should put out first.

    Probably a very stupid question to ask, but what can I do with WiFi on a blackberry exactly? I've been trying to google some answers to this, but haven't found anything helpful really.

    Browse the web. Email. BBM. Use web enabled apps. ftp at very high speeds. The list goes on.

    You can get the two year price at one year, but you won't get the NE2 discount, and there's a $30 early upgrade fee. So a S2 will cost you $129.00 right now.

    I paid $180 so that seems like a good deal.

    It was well worth it for me. Much better phone (though I loved my S1 as well), and I sold my S1 on ebay for $180.

    For me, the biggest benefit is the additional app memory. Second nicest thing is the tight screen action. It is a more predictable click action, although my last S1 had a pretty good screen. WiFi is really just an unimportant but fun bonus to play with - may be more important to other people.

    On the negative side, I actually preferred the four buttons on the S1. Could answer the phone with gloves on before.

    On balance though, loving my S2.

    PS - used it on 320 for a couple of hours, then upgraded to 517. Screen seemed to work better after upgrading.

    Wifi on the S2 was the big seller for me.
    I don't have 3G coverage at home (edge network) so wifi is much faster and saves using data on my data plan.
