    Storm 2 but I am really partial to BB. I wouldn't get the brand new device until it has atleast been on the market a few months and proven to work good. I hate getting the first full of bugs device that beginner companies have

    I was certain I was getting a Storm 2. Now I'm leaning towards the Droid. Starting to look more and more like RIM is a day late and a dollar short.

    I'm conflicted and only by trying each will I be able to make a decision. Reading about them isn't enough--I need to "kick the tires" first.

    i think you should test them both out and see what you like, considering you're asking us for phones that aren't released and we only know so much about each phone. this is something where you have to decided what you like better

    TO answer the OPs question.....

    If the Moto Android had BBM, then I'd be all over it. As it obviously doesn't, then I'm sticking to the S2 and waiting for a sleak new OS, as promised.

    Yep guys, BBM is that important to me. I have too many friends on it and I am not paying another $20/months for unlimited texts.

    The biggest negative on Android is the battery won't get you through the day. Keep that in mind. To me that is a dealbreaker. I won't carry extra batteries or charge in my car on my way somewhere. I charge at bedtime at home, period, and if I stay overnight I won't drag my home charger with me either.

    You can just refer to the 11 page thread on if the android is superior to S2, has some good info the first 8 pages.

    Then don't ever get a 3G phone or you are going to be in trouble. There isn't one 3G smart phone out there that I have ever seen that will do what you are asking. Ok, maybe if you just leave it on standby and don't use it. If you use it at all, no way the thing lasts more the 16 hours. I just can't see it happening. So staying overnight and not charging is going to be an EPIC FAIL on your end.

    Why is the battery so bad? I know nothing about Android so could you give specifics? I'm sure the larger screens can't help...

    If you are a heavy user, no 3G smart phone will get you through the day either. Just won't happen. By heavy, I mean a couple of hours of talk time has to be included in that. If you are just texting and emailing, that doesn't count and won't drain the battery that much. I'm talking phone, browser, data data data.

    Just carry and extra battery or charge in your car or at your desk.

    Ok after seeing multiple pics and screen shots along with specs the Moto Droid hands down wins! Up until 24 hours my heart was made up on the Storm2 but now I have hada change of heart. VZW truly believes this will be there 'iphone' and will be the first time they market a phone directly against the iphone. Now while I can't say it is the iphone killer it will be my nexy phone!

    Where can I read more about what this Droid can do?

    Specifically, I want to know if I can use it like I do my BB w/BES to do OTA sync of my calendar, contacts, and email with Outlook. Currently, I'm paying for Hosted Exchange and BES.

    If the only answer is, "yes, it can do that, but only if your domain is hosted with Google" then Android is a non-player in my book. My email, calendar, and contacts info is too valuable (to me) to trust to a "free" service. I'm an IT professional and I have learned that "you get what you pay for" is axiomatic. I believe all the people who are putting their trust (and so much of their personal info) in Google will learn the truth of my words sooner or later.

    If you're paying for your own BBerry and your company isn't - then screw security for your company's info if they aren't willing to cover it.

    I use my personal phone for my personal emails - my company provides a seperate BBerry.

    That said. Droid all the way - BBerry F'd up with the S1. S2 is going to be the same crap as S1 without the glitches and with Wi-Fi *Yawn*.

    Agreed...the only way is to "kick the tires". Isn't that the way we do most of our major purchases???

    Got that but he made specific reference to the Android OS so I'm curious how battery life may differ from other smart phones.
