give back that TP2 for an Imagio
 
I just got my Imagio and I am so glad I have it back. One HUGE caveat, if you need the keyboard then obviously TP2 is for you. While I like the soft keyboard and it works well for me, I'm it won't cut it for everyone. Otherwise this feels like a phone in my hand instead of a brick and has all the same features and better camera. Very happy I traded mine in. :)

I am wondering how others who swapped theirs feels?

I did the same thing. The TP2 is like a brick. I had the Diamond and tried the TP2 but I have never had a need for a keyboard. I love the Imagio. Best WM phone yet in my opinoin.

I just ordered a pure from ATT, my VZ TP2 will be sent back tomorrow.

TP2 is an awesome phone, it's just a little too bulky to carry around.

I have had my TP2 for 3 weeks, and while I love it I realized I really dont use the hw keyboard that much. So in thinking about this I decided to return the TP2 and order my Imagio! It will be at my home tomorrow.

I am very much looking forward to this, as I love the TF3D interface. Its quite smooth, and the addition of the FM radio(RDS) will only enhance my GPS use.

How's the speakerphone? That's one thing I'm worried about in the trade I'm contemplating at the moment. Any issues with the relative build quality compared to the TP2? In the TP2 forum someone else who had traded felt it was relatively less well built.

I thought it was just as good, if anything the reduction of weight may make it seem less sturdy, especially without the metal-ish back, but it is very solid and more comfortable to use.

I found the speaker phone to sound the same as the TP2.

I actually ordered an Imagio because I could not find a TP2 in stock anywhere. I figure I'll try the Imagio, and worse comes to worse I can trade it in for the TP2 if I absolutely need the keyboard.

I wanted the TP2 because I miss the keyboard from my 6800....

I loled at this :mrgreen:

I just tried the TP2 for the first time, holy crap it's ginormous!!!!

The Imagio seems awesome, perfect for my needs. I'm gonna switch from Sprint to VZW for a bit and get the Imagio for sure. Then whoever gets the HD2 will have me as a subscriber for a while :) Unless of course it's ATT, I wouldn't do that to myself even for an HD2.

Re: give back that TP2 for an Imagio
 
I've had my VZW TP2 for almost four weeks but am considering trading it in (within VZW's 30 day return window) for the Imagio. Here's why:

1. The TP2 is a bit thick and heavy for my tastes. According to VZW's website, the TP2 is 4.57" (H) x 2.33" (W) x 0.68" (D) and weighs 6.35 ounces...and the Imagio is 4.65" (H) x 2.43" (W) x 0.55" (D) and weighs 5.2 ounces. So the Imagio weighs less, is slightly wider and higher, and is thinner (because it lacks a physical keyboard).

2. Like an earlier poster, I came from the XV6800 and thought I would be *lost* without a physical keyboard. I had been someone who was firmly convinced that I needed a physical keyboard; however, I've used the TP2's physical keyboard only a handful of times over the last four weeks--the virtual keyboard is *that* good, especially compared to the XV6800. I've written many emails and text messages using just the virtual keyboard. Of course, I haven't written any lengthy notes yet, but I'm not sure having the physical keyboard is worth the extra thickness and weight for its occasional use.

3. The TP2 comes with Windows Mobile 6.1 and the Imagio comes with WM 6.5. An upgrade to WM 6.5 for the TP2 is surely forthcoming, but when? In my experience, WM upgrades never seem as good as having the phone come with with the OS. Of course, the TP2 is so new that perhaps it won't make a difference.

4. The TP2 comes with a 3.2 megapixel camera and the Imagio comes with a 5 megapixel camera--not that either device takes that great of a picture.

Anyway, can anyone else who has tried both devices comment? Are there any other noteworthy differences?

BTW, I upgraded from the XV6800 to the TP2 using VZW's 'new every two' program and ended up paying only $99 for the TP2. Will VZW sock me for swapping phones?
