    OK, We've done this for every other phone out there. Looking at the Storm; it looks pretty impressive. If the "tactile screen" works as advertised, it may give the best of both worlds. So; would you go to this over the 800w? why or why-not?

    Probably not, I've had 3 treos for one simple reason the form factor. The none hardware keyboard just don't do it for me. IMO of course.

    No keyboard, and it's still a BB which means nowhere near the available 3rd party apps, and the deplorable expense of having to use the RIM server.

    The larger screen and lack of keyboard are big pluses for me. But VZ's outrageous pricing compared to Sprint's turns me off from switching.

    Plus, I'm not familiar with BB OS, but I'm under the impression it doesn't sync calendar and contacts and notes with Outlook. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I can live with DTG for documents, having used it with my POS Kyo 7135, but I must be able to sync with Outlook on my laptop, not through a server.

    Actually BB's do sync with Outlook (contacts, tasks, calender, etc.) the same as the 800.

    If it were on Sprint there would be no extra BB charge for some. I can bounce between a BB and Windows device without having to add anything to my plan.

    The BB has a 600+mhz processor which makes moving through the device fast . This and the lack of memory and battery hog of Windows Mobile makes it a ton better in these categories than the 800.

    That's about it though. No keyboard is a deal breaker for most of us. I did read that the touch screen is spring loaded so there is a feel as buttons are pressed.

    Can't really compare the two. Compare the 800 against the Touch Pro. That a better comparison.

    Thanks, Vibrant, for correcting my misconception about BB syncing with Outlook. Looks like I'll have to take another look at Verizon's pricing. I really do like the looks of the Storm.

    I wish Sprint would get some cool phones, I think the touch Diamons might be nice but they didn't have one in the store here to look at, and the instinct is a joke unless you just want a fancy mp3 player with phone and GPS.
