TP2 or wait?

Right now I have a Samsung Omnia. And its the best phone I have had. I went from Moto Razr to LG Env to LG Dare and now the Samsung Omnia. I was thinking of getting the TP2 for Verizon for something a bit more zippy and well HTC devices seem to have a bit more support as far as apps etc being developed. I love my omnia and it was my first windows mobile phone, so im looking forward to the TP2 but I can't help but think maybe I should wait to see if the HD2 comes out on Verizon or if there is any other phones with keyboards I should try. Leaving Verizon is out of the question, but for now I really want a TP2 but its like should I wait? I'm pretty sure it won't support windows 7 mobile. I just figured I would make a topic see if you guys/gals could help me with deciding on which phone to get. Thanks

Re: TP2 or wait?

If your satisfied, stick with your omnia, I love my tp2, but if you want to wait on a new device, check out the motorola droid, or wait for a new HTC.

If you love the Omnia, you'll marry the TP2. I wouldn't wait.

Re: TP2 or wait?

Re: TP2 or wait?

That's a very personal decision. You first need to decide if you want to stick with Windows. Thend decide if you want to wait or not. If you like your Omnia you may choose to wait. If you want a great phone now with the best keyboard around then you want the tp2. Even if Verizon does get the HD2... It won't have a keyboard. We may need to wait quite a while before they pht out another HTC windows phone with a keyboard. Make the jump... The water's warm. TP2 is great.

Re: TP2 or wait?

if you want a windows phone with a keyboard, tp2 is the way to go. we likely won't see a new htc phone with a keyboard until the end of next year. BTW, Verizon would probably be last to get the hd2, they already have the imagio and the omnia II coming. Sprint doesn't have a new slab winmo phone, so they'd probably get it before verizon. GSM carriers will prob be first, t-mo specifically.

the only other keyboard phone that's new out overseas that might come to the states would be the omnia pro (the slideout one).

Now if you're going to wait, it should be to wait for windows mobile 7.

Re: TP2 or wait?

Lol well thing is the HD2 seems to have better touch response and it has capacitive screen so I would imagine that its going to be better in that department. The Kitchen for TP2 is it out anywhere? I haven't had time to search around just yet I currently cook roms for my omnia ^_^ As far as sticking with windows I think I want to stay I don't really see anything worth going to. Iphone isn't for me and Android is so new im not to sure what I would even do if I got it. The biggest thing I liked on Android was HTC Sense and I seen a couple custom roms that have it. Whats the general quick info on why they discontinued or w/e the TP2 on Verizon?

Yea I would wait for windows mobile 7 but man that's a long wait.

All I need is a offcial xbox live app for my windows mobile phone lol

Re: TP2 or wait?

So then you know what you wanna do. Get the pro2 and wait for windows 7 to come out. That should be fun.

I have, but everyone is doing 6.5, and I prefer 6.1 still, they are nice, but still in beta stage.
