Storm is all about the multimedia experience. I don't thing switching to different BBs is necessarily a step backward but more of a switch to your user lifestyle preference. Real keyboard, smaller screen, track ball....it's about what you're using it for. They all do the same thing, it's just how they present it to you and how you interact with it. So I would say no to your question.
If a member answers your question, solves an issue, and/or helps you in any way that becomes beneficial....by all means hook em up with some Kudos!! Or mark the thread solved and give Kudos!!
Which one has the better web browser for look and speed?
Remember, it will cost you $35 to make this change. As long as you are okay with it, that is fine but I wanted to let you know so that you are making an informed decision.
