Okay, now that you have actually "touched" and used the Sprint HTC Touch Diamond (great review by the way), which do you prefer.....the BB Curve 8330 or the HTC Touch Diamond? I have also seen where BB is supposedly going to launch the Storm in October or November, which will be a touch screen, to add to the mix, although it will be with Verizon for probably a few years. You also mentioned today that Sprint is also coming out with the HTC Touch Pro, which will have the touch screen AND a slide out QWERTY keyboard. Have you had an opportunity to get one to play with it yet? Here are some questions about the Diamond that you didn't share in your review.

1) What about the onscreen keyboard. What do you think of it? I want to be able to type easily for responding to emails although right now I don't do a lot of texting.
2) Does the Blackberry Curve 8330 (Sprint version) have more storage? You mentioned the Diamond only has 4gb onboard with no expansion slots available.
3) If you had your druthers, would you prefer the HTC Touch Pro or the Diamond?
4) What are the chances of having problems with a touchscreen type device vs push button type device? How reliable have HTC Touch devices been in the past historically vs BB (which I've heard are very reliable)
5) Which device has the more exciting screen visually? I've heard some of the BB screens are like black and white and boring whereas the HTC Touch Diamond appears to be more "colorful" and eye-pleasing.
6) Is the Touch Flo 3D on the Sprint HTC Diamond much improved over the Touch Flo of the Sprint HTC Touch?

Okay, I think I've asked enough questions. Please respond when you get a moment and can put the Sprint HTC Touch Diamond down long enough! :-D
