Looks like a nice phone, but I'm staying particular to my blackberry

Blackberries are also very nice phones, and if you're used to that style, it's great. For me, they are too wide, and I can't see giving up half the phone real estate to a keyboard (I'm old and blind.)

If you do not text or mail. there is not much reason for a HW KB. But if you have ever tried to write anything serious on a touch-screen.... HOLY CALIBRATION BATMAN!!!!

the EVO does kick ass.
there have been reports of the touch screen being sporadic.

The touch screen is awesome. The only problem I've had with it is that it's capacitive sense, not pressure sense, so you can just get near buttons and they will fire. Using the touch keyboard in landscape mode is quite easy. I can even use it in portrait mode, although I can't seem to consistently hit the correct keys with my left hand, only my right. (I think I calibrated it with my right hand.)

The phone also has speech to text. I can hit the microphone button and talk, and it writes out the message. It's really accurate too, although I've just tried it a couple of times.

The predictive typing feature is also a big help in getting text messages out quickly.

My wife has the HTC Touch Pro 2, (WinMo) and that touch screen is a pain in the butt to use anything but the stylus. Her phone also has a slide out keyboard but my fat thumbs can't reach the numbers easily; they're too close to the screen.

[EDIT] I can reproduce the shade test when the phone is sitting on a stack of papers or on the couch. But if i put two fingers at the top and bottom edges of the phone (eg, to keep it from sliding or spinning), it works fine.

I'm looking forward to a HTC Incredible coming this week after being back ordered for 3 weeks. I was a Blackberry user for the last 6 years.(5 of those being a Blackberry Admin)
Since my company was acquired by Oracle over a year ago, the Blackberry ain't that great since they use Notifylink instead of a real BES.

I can't get here at work, but is that the one where one asks:

"Would you get the Droid if it gave you three wishes?"
"No."

Nope. The Droid is Motorola's Android smartphone. These are about the EVO (HTC/Sprint) and the iPhone.
