    pearl flip.


    the only thing good about it was fantastic integration with our BES-enabled corporate exchange server. and maybe the form factor...i like small flips.

    the bad? everything else. X will be a revelation, in terms of both functionality and size.

    10a tomorrow...

    nice! what's up Nate, glad to see you saw the light. BB is dead! I'm right there with you as this will be my first Android device. I wonder if you'll be able to make themes for Android like you for all of us over at Crackberry?
    LOL, I plan on trying

    First post here, BB Storm 1 and current Storm 2 owner. Been in denial for a while. Played with the EVO and saw the light. Will be ordering my Droid X in just a few hours on VZW.com.

    Absolutely cannot wait. I returned my wifes BB 9650 last week for a Moto Droid and have been playing with that for the past week(already rooted and installed Kangerade). Fallen in love with Android. BlackBerry is obviously on its way out. Do they really think the minor updates in OS6 are enough? R.I.P. RIM
    Nate, you were the BB man! I used many of your themes throughout the years. Glad you are jumping ship with me.

    Former CB user here too (doctorlove316). I left a few weeks ago for a used Droid and am pissed at myself for not doing it sooner. It's time for the X now though!

    I am a convert but it's not my first time converting. I had to go the dumbphone route for a bit after having Blackberry devices. I then went from a Rumor2 to a HTC Hero on Sprint but didn't like it at all so I went back to Blackberry and got an 8530 Curve. I've since realized that it wasn't the Hero that sucked but my cell signal! Every phone I've had in this house just can not make or receive a call to save my life. Data connections? Ha! I've since opened a Verizon account and my husband has his plain-Jane flip phone while I've been waiting on the X to be released. Here I sit now just foaming at the mouth until midnight when it hopefully goes online so I can order and ditch Sprint and Blackberry.

    I think we should start a "Death to BlackBerry" cult, everybody stands around with Android phones chanting, "Death to Blackberry", we'll start sacrificing chickens and locks of VZW employee's hair, burning it in the center of a Pentagram... burning candles on the points of the pentagram, and hopefully the devil will be summoned to kill all BlackBerry's on the Earth.

    I thought I would stick with BB through all the new Androids constantly coming out. I think I made up my mind to switch when i found out OS 6 wouldn't be available for my Storm.

    I started out with a BB Peal, then the Storm 1, and finally the Storm 2. Installing leaked OS's and hybrids started to become a bit of a hobby at first. However, lately the new OS's have been a disappointment, and the videos of OS 6 just didn't impress me that much. A lot of website I use regularly are now releasing apps for Android, but not BB. I liked the phone, but RIM is a bit behind the curve in my opinion. I'm looking forward to everything the Droid X can offer. I won't sleep much tonight because I'm just to anxious.....

    Well I went from a BB Tour to a Droid about 3 weeks ago. Trading it in for an X bright and early in the morning.

    I was a diehard crackberry guy and didn't think I would ever leave the BB.

    My buddy talked me into trying a Droid and damn, why didn't I do it sooner.

    It just plain works and is cool too!

    BB and their lack of innovation is going to be their downfall (other than corporate BES users).

    They promise OS6.0 and it is just a plain ole update looks like and not much more.

    And to top it off I got the Tour the day it came out and it is not going to get 6.0 or the webkit browser. Dang, just a little over a year old.

    I am happy with my Droid but I played with the X in the store a little bit and I think I can be happy with that too

    You guys crack me up! Thought this was a convert page?!? How did it turn into a RIM bash!

    Look on the bright side, MOST of us will have spare chargers left over from our BB's! ROFL!

    Glad to see natemz here. This place is much better than our usual hangouts man. I am ditching this antiquated bb tour. It was outdated before it even came out... I was such an ***** then...

    I'm leaving BB after 2 1/2 years with my Curve 8330. It was my first smartphone and it's served me very well. But everything RIM has put out since has been "more of the same".Android has made more progress in 9 months than BB has in 3+ years.

    My father had the world edition and wanted to upgrade. He REALLY liked my Droid but didn't want to lose his bbm contacts. He ended up getting the Storm 2 and IMMEDIATELY regretted that decision. He said his fingers were too big for that awkward screen. He's returning it and I think he's gonna try the droid X since the screen is so big & awesome (my words not his)

    My first post here... Pretty excited. I'm the first in line at my local VZW store in Salt Lake City. Watching the sun rise over the Wasatch Mountains while I wait to ditch this POS Storm 1. It's been a long time coming!
