help deciding

hey everyone ive been trying to decide since the 6th if i should keep my tp2 or get the imagio. i am a heavy texter 1500 texts a month at the bare minmum, i use my phone for most of my internet browsing, maybe 25 - 30 emails a month. also i have a 7mp camera that is usually at my house just cause its easier to carry one device and use my phones camera ( personally i have no gripe with the tp2 camera at all.) the things that bother me are the added weight of the tp2 because of the keyboard, the battery life (im constantly charging this phone) and the having to wait for the new manilla and 6.5. the imagio though is holding me off because of the lack of keyboard; im big i wear a size 13 ring and the onscreen keyboard on the tp2 is horrendous to me. is the imagios kb any better? any help you guys could offer (reasoning, suggestion, etc) would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.

Re: help deciding

Well come on who could pass up a phone with it's own little kickstand!??!

But seriously, i have bigger hands as well and as far as i'm concerned the touch screen keyboard on the Imagio isnt' really any better than that on the TP2. For me the TP2's keyboard is an absolute must, it's the best i've found so far and would hate to have to give it up. And if you're texting and e-mailing as much as you are, i cant imagine having to do all that on screen. Basically what i'm saying is that, for me, it would totoally suck to be onscreen KB only. Hope this helps.

Re: help deciding

i use the keyboard for long rants and such, but for every day texting, where it 10 to 160 characters, im fine with the onscreen keys. does the imagio come with a sylus?

I can swear the official verizon 6.5 rom is out here, so if you want the new 2.1 manilla and 6.5, go and load the official verizon rom, no hspl needed. the imagio's screen is basically the same as the tp2, so the onscreen keyboard is basically the same. The only added advantage of the imagio is the slimness as you said but that will be up to you to decide.
