    We don't know WHEN the S3 will hit and how much of an improvement it will be over the S2, so how do you expect anyone to intelligently answer your question??

    I know that no one will be able to tell me anything that i dont already know about the S3 as there isn't any concrete information/evidence of it. but i was hoping people will be able to help me decide what to choose by giving me their thoughts on the storm 2 and whether their gut instinct is to wait for the S3 or go for the S2

    thanks anyway

    I think he's just looking for opinions. Here's mine fwiw...
    I would buy a used S2 (off ebay etc) enjoy it until S3 comes out.
    You can re-sell S2 when you get S3 to recover some of your initial purchase price.

    Opinions, opinions, everyone has an opinion. When it comes down to making a decision, that's for the person about to write the check or slide the credit card through the machine.

    My opinion? I like my S2. If I KNEW exactly what the S3 was all about and what date it was going to be released, I could then make an intelligent decision about buying now or buying later. Without that info, all the OPINION in the world is worth nada.

    YES! It is far better than the S1. The screen is remarkable--a big improvement over the S1 which I had for 8 miserable days, back in early 2009. The OS is MUCH improved (the last 3 iterations). No more wobbly, single-button screen. The 4 corner actuators work remarkably well.

    Yes. It's worth it for the memory alone (twice that of the S1)
    The other big change is wifi on the S2 (not available on S1)

    My uncle always said.. Opinions are like an as*hol*,everyone has one lol. I agree w ur analysis. I got my s2 half a month ago. Personally I think rim is being stupid by takin so long to release s3 or slider. N I dun think s3 will b out anytime in 2010. Slider,yes. But not s3.

    3GPP Long Term Evolution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia no sorry i don't know for a fact its going to be LTE but i have been following storm 3 on google and i have read here on CB that it should have LTE and plus storm 2 is almost a year old and storm 3 is only what 4 months away? it only makes sense to wait and save ur upgrade...i guess buy a storm2 on ebay if u have to have it...but technology flies fast and i would wait for next gen. phone of storm series .imho

    Not to be an echo, but this is NOT confirmed. It's only speculated that the S3 will be released when Verizon deploys LTE, but then again the existence of the S3 hasn't been confirmed yet. If there's no device, then there's no release date.

    To the OP: I heard about rumors of the S2 coming since February of '09, and I waited almost an entire year to get mine so I could use my NE2. IMHO, it all depends on how long you're willing to wait to get something you'll be happy with. I waited, checked out the competition, and when it came time I got my S2 and am thoroughly pleased with my decision.

    I agree, don't use your NE2. Get it second hand. In my area the S2 is going for $200 with accessories. I've been thinking about getting a Pre Plus as a back up once I see one cheap enough on Craigslist.
