    Is anybody else having trouble deciding between the pearl flip or tour? I like the size of the pearl but also like the bigger screen of the tour. Any thoughts? Does anybody know if the tour will have predictive text when typing like the sure-type keyboard?

    Umm... I'd personally go with the Tour.

    When the 5.0 OS becomes available, the Tour will have predictive text like SureType keyboards do.

    I tried the flip. Wanted it to work badly because of the size.
    RIM decided to leave it a stripped down POS.
    Processor is slow, video doesn't auto flip to landscape,
    Heck, double tapping the menu key won't even send a message.
    It's stable, battery life and memory management rocked.
    Would've been a kick @ss model if they would have at least used newer
    Existing technology on it,
    Gonna use my worry free to send it back and get a tour...

    I, too, really wanted the Flip to be everything that I hoped it would be. However, the processor speed, mushy keyboard, and extremely weak vibrate killed it for me. I pre-ordered a Tour last week and can't wait to get it.

    I did get the pearl flip last week and you are right, the vibrate is weak. This is the main reason I might trade it in for the Tour since I'm still under the 30 day return policy. I do like the sure-type and the small size but in the back of my mind I feel I might be making a mistake not getting the bigger model.
