I dunno, I will be waiting and seeing. I plan on getting the Cliq 2 the day after it comes out (when I get paid next). I have had the Cliq for over a year and the only thing that really ticked me off was how long we had to wait for Android 2.1. But the Cliq did not have the hardware to support it fully and keep all speed (mind you mine never lagged or slowed down like I have heard until 2.1, however it still doesn't lag up much if any).
I don't know what I think of the keyboard. The store in my area let me mess around with a demo (non-functioning) model so I could see it in hand (I asked for more pictures and the rep was like, "I will do you one better"). I think it won't be too big of a change from the current keyboard but there is a lot of wasted space.
Overall though I am impressed with the stats of the Cliq 2. The only worry I have is the updates which I honestly don't care as much about because 2.2 will be good enough to last me a while since I do like BLUR. My biggest concern is that everything here is saying it is HSPA+ however T-Mobile seems to not answer it is or isn't. And I haven't seen a single picture of one with an H on it to show that it is. If it turns out that it isn't, I won't buy it.
