    I currently have a :palm: treo 700wx, I love the keyboard on this phone....but its almost 5 years old now I am up for a new phone in the 7th. I hate the I-Pone keyboard so I am torn between getting the Droid 2 so I can have a physical keyboard or waiting for the "incredible HD" and dealing with no physical keyboard. Thanks in advance for the input!

    Sounds like you want a physical keyboard already, when the iPhone keyboard is already considered one of the best.

    Droid 2 for you it seems.

    As always with these threads: what do you want/need, aside from the keyboard? Is the keyboard a must-have?

    Out of the 3 you mentioned in your poll, I'd wait for the Incredible HD, but that's just me.

    I don't (and won't) own any of these (I'm still rockin' my D1).... I'm waiting for the superphones to drop :)

    The droid 2

    i have been using the droid 2 for about a month now and i have been greatly satisfied. i was stuck on getting the droid x just for the larger screen and better camera but i decided that a small sacrifice of screen size and a lower quailty camera is well worth it for the keyboard. very easy to operate and customize. i switched from a blackberry storm (first gen.) and i wouldn't trade the 2 for a thing

    It seems that, each week, I read three or four threads asking what phone to purchase.

    This seems strange to me. When someone purchases a pair or pants or shirt do they ask what to purchase. You go to the store and try them on. When you purchase a car you test drive first. Same for the phone --- go to the store and test drive what is available. Make your decision on what works best for you not someone else.

    Just my opinion.

    Pretty much, but I always get asked what car someone should get first, unless they have their heart set on a Camaro, Mustang, or Ranger/Canyon/insert gas-guzzler-SUV-here. Of course, I'm a bit of a car buff. :)

    To be honest, wait till the latest and greatest drops and demo it. How would you like to buy, say, a Camaro SS only to find out that a week later Chevrolet is releasing a limited-edition SS2 that has 25% more horsepower and 30% better fuel economy for the same price? :)

    Go with the HTC merge. Far better keyboard than the droid/droid 2. It's supposed to be out by the 17th latest, and since you've had your treo for ~4-5 years I think you can stand the wait. I'm moving from my X to this when it comes out, as much as I like the X, a keyboard is necessary for me, and the merge's is fantastic.


    **And yes, it does have Bing, but the google search widget is downloadable and so are google maps, so for anyone complaining of that, there point is moot**
