    I was considering getting a Droid when my plan expires in a year and a half, but if RIM goes through with this and it turns out well, I may just stick with BlackBerry.

    Have you even tried the newest Storm 2? MAJOR improvement over the Storm 1. I had serious issues with the first one, but so far the Storm 2 has left me very pleased about their progress with SurePress technology.
     
  4. Google and Apple are too far ahead for RIMM to catch up with piecemeal moves.They need to do change their strategy dramatically like merging with Nokia http://bit.ly/a3cNpa
