  1. Please oh please did they with this update give us the option to be able to type text msgs and emails without having to click the whole screen? That is its biggest downfall in my opinion, one that can never ever ever be as fast as typing with either a full touch sensitive keyboard without clicking or a regular button keyboard. It is physically impossible for a one whole screen clicker to be as fast as those mentioned above because of the fact that you have to wait for the up click before typing your next letter which is not true of any regular physical keyboard or any of the other touch keyboards like the iPhone or LGs, etc, so that alone handicaps the Storm seriously for txting and emailing.
