    HELP?! I can't choose which device to get! I would really appreciate any answers that you give
    me. They are both the newest devices from RIM. Especially with both of them releasing at a close time
    frame! What I like about each device:

    BlackBerry Storm 2:
    - Big Screen
    - Touch Screen
    - Easy navigation
    - clickable screen
    - OpenGL ES support
    - Good for watching movies
    - Nice design
    - etc.

    BlackBerry Bold 2:
    - BATTERY LIFE!!!
    - Nice small size
    - nice design
    - Trackpad
    - Easy navigation
    - etc.

    So which should I get??? I like to watch movies and videos on my BlackBerry. That's why I would
    like the Storm 2. I also like the Storm 2 because of its OpenGL ES support. I even like the
    clickable screen. I would like the Bold 2 because send and receive 18 billion BBM's everyday.
    And the Bold 2 battery life won't drain fast from it. I also like the Bold 2 because its small size.
    Which will enable me to put it in my pocket with out it sticking out like a big bulge. I just don't
    know which to get. So that's why I ask you guys. Soooo...? Tell me what you guys think is best.
    Oh, and no I don't want(or need) an iPhone or Droid!

    Bold 9700

    I got the Storm 2 for Christmas but later switched it for the Bold 9700. There was nothing wrong with the phone besides the battery life (got around 60% by the end of the day on average), it just wasn't for me.

    The Bold 9700 is a nice light phone that is perfect for sending lots of messages. The screen size is nice but it's not too bad to watch movies on it. I watch a few movies on my lunch break at work and it works just fine. Watching movies on my storm would drain the battery life real fast.

    Thanks for replying. It was a very good answer. Oh, did you say that you still had 60% of battery life at
    the end of the day with the Storm 2 or Bold 2?
