    i think they should just do an os redesign and have the option to disable push to click and have true touch screen typing much like that of the iphone

    I personally hate phones like the voyager with a touch screen and a physical keyboard. IMO it defeats the purpose of the touch screen.

    Besides, a marketing point for the storm was that Surepress allowed you to type more accurately then a plain touch screen. As long as they improve there's no need for a slide out keyboard.

    i agree the voyager was just aweful as a touchscreen phone. Some ppl like the haptic feedback clicking of the storm others do not. i just think an option should be implemented to just touch instead of click if you want to.

    really the only design flaw the storm has is internal and thats no wifi

    maybe the storm will be beast and support wireless n?

    I was going to say that i disagree with this, then I realized that the only way i ever used my Voyager was by flipping it open. It was ridiculously rare for me to even touch the screen. I think I just liked how clean it made the front of the phone look.

    Anyway, I like the Storm keyboard the way it is. I pretty love everything about the phone except for the lag. That said, if they work on the OS, which I think someone above mentioned already, I would be content. I enjoy the tactile feedback from the Storm but would be unwilling to sacrifice screen size. Perfect the current design, possibly allow option to disable surepress (options improve just about everything), and, while it's not needed, I do feel that Wifi would greatly improve the situation.

    My $.02

    If you hate it why did you buy the phone? If sure press is fantastic if the storm 2 doesn't click I am not buying it. In fact I see no reason to buy a storm 2 as of now the only thing it is bringing to the table is wi fi which is not woety upgrading for alone. This phone is fantastic.


    I think that RIM should have an option in screen/keyboard settings to disable the surepress because I HATE it

    There's supposed to be a different screen on the storm 2, that's not surepress. Also, I would not want this phone to come out with a slide out keyboard, there are already plenty of LG's and HTC's that do that

    noooo i hate touchscreen phones WITH keyboard.
    in my opinion they should just improve the surepress technology and go for a full touchscreen blackberry WITHOUT a keyboard.
    I agree. If they want to make a phone that's touch screen with keyboard it should bea completely Different phone

    I agree that RIM should just make an option to disable surepress on the keyboard. It seems like that would satisfy more people than a slider.

    But they don't even need a new phone to do that. If they bundled that with OS 5.0 then the storm would probably be pretty much solid.

    Is it Storm 2 or a second touchscreen BB. I don't see why they have to be one and the same.

    Basically I doubt they would kill off the line of Surepress Touchscreen phones.

    They keep a sure press keyboard for us fat fingerers or it levels the playing field for the other smart phones out there next time I am up unless they still have the Storm available at that time.

    If you want a real keyboard get a Bold...the Storm is a touchscreen phone, honestly after using this phone since it's release I could never go back to a hard keypad...I love the touch type Plus I think a sliding keypad would make the phone look cheap...I never liked the slider phones

    Seriously?! if you want to get a phone with touch and slide out keyboard, you might as well go with a HTC or a samsung, or wait for the palm pre... cause honestly, if you got the Storm for texting features and want to text "fast" you bought the wrong phone buddy.

    I honestly LOVE the surepress, and if they take it away from the Storm 2, then what the **** is even the point of calling it a new "storm"?! when they're innovation was to bring out a phone with a "different feel" to a average touch screen. seriously though, if you want a keyboard with a phone and a lightweight one, wait for the palm pre, your better off.

    and if you still want a storm without surepress and Wi-Fi then go get your damn iPhone, cause honestly, the surepress touch screen is what MAKES the storm the storm, not a normal everyday "touch sensitive" screen.

    I hope I proved my point, but really, Storm 2 with NO SURE PRESS SCREEN?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?! it would make it just another touch screen phone, and less unique... but if you're having clicking problems, there's threads about it to make the click loud and effective like the commercial. I personally use 2 Jim Dunlop picks at .60 ratio/thickness (it's also helpful just encase I lose my picks I leave in my pocket or on my guitar xD) but I put 2 to line up in a certain way and to cover where the button would be.

    but REALLY!............RIM is pure FAIL if they take it out.

    agreed if the new "storm" is to have a keyboard thats not touch screen then they better all it a hailstorm or something cause "storm 2" would be crap. it implicates the touch feature to much with those who have them or can relate. i think the next black berry should have otterbox included with the upgrade or new contract so when we all get all pissed off with them right away we can throw them and not have all the guilt of throwing a 500+ phone......ha ha ha hah ah ha........just an idea

    RIM more or less resolved this issue. The method would be through releasing the Blackberry Bold. Storm-quality screen and Curve-like keyboard.
