Storm 1 convert here as well. Except I left when the D1 was launched
All I can say, and it will be backed up by almost every other BB convert here is..... YOU'LL NEVER LOOK BACK!
Granted there are those who Android isn't for (in coming from a BB) but the majority of users see a whole new world with Android.
Definitely take the time and go play with some of the devices in store, and certainly try to get hold of a friend's and give it a try.
There is a learning curve, but the rewards are oh so sweet
Enjoy the forums!
