    Looking for a new phone. Looking at these 3. I'm leaning towards the BB, but convince me otherwise. Any other Verizon phones out there? No, I'm notgetting an iPhone.

    I'd probably get the Droid, just because.

    I despise touch screens, so I went with the Tour. Have friends/acquaintences w/BB's as well so the BBM feature is very appreciated.

    I played with both Droid and Imagio.


    The display on both was stunning! The droid was easy to use and the Imagio was more of business type phone.

    Eris, the price is too good to pass up.

    I would wait for the HTC Dragon/Passion to drop start or next year, and then make the decision. Some guy in the Droid thread said that somewhere he heard thatthere was an app to access BBM on it but I highly doubt it.

    The droid does look pretty nice.. but from what I heard it doesn't have push e-mail (instant e-mail on your phone) which would annoy the crap out of me. Iusually check my e-mails more frequently now than I do on my computer.

    I have the tour and loved it at 1st, I still like it but it doesn't have that WOW factor to me anymore. BBM to me is overrated. It's a cool feature tohave but out of all my friends I only use it for 2-3 people maybe. Everyone else uses AIM still and have it on their phone, I use BeeJive all day.

    If you don't need a physical keyboard, get the Eris

    If you need your phone for work like I do go with the Tour. it is too hard responding to emails with a touch screen
