I'm about 90% certain I'm getting the hero this weekend, but seeing that Tao is giving me second thoughts. I'm already with Sprint, but my contract is up so I'm a free Agent. I love Sprint's pricing, and my son has a phone also where the contract is not up so I would still have to carry a single line on two different carriers and miss out on any mulitiple line discounts. So..outside of the monthly cost factor and just comparing phones, I really like the idea of a big screen, but at the same time I want a pocket phone, so that's both a positive and a negative. The overall looks I would have to give to the Tao. The keyboard...who cares. I'm not really sure about the rest, seems like they both have all of the standard stuff, 3.5, wifi, bluetooth, microsd. Don't know anything about blur, but can't imagine that it would have any major advantages over sense, so that's probably a wash. Motorola vs. HTC, probably a wash also. Carriers, I would give the nod to verizon because of the better network, although I have no complaints about Sprint. Anyone else trying to decide between the two?
