We've been over this a million times.
Verizon rejected the Google phone. It will be sold on T-Mobie fully functional. It can be unlocked through AT&T but not sold through them and will only receive EDGE data NOT 3G.
As I have been saying....Google failed in its attempt to sell an unlocked phone and obviously the whole "invite only" idea is to save face and to build anticipation.
The big white elephant is in the room and Google did not accomplish the goal it wanted to. Unless of course you consider T-Mobile being the sole carrier a success.
Sorry as a newbie, I still don't understand what this phone will have over the Droid if they're both running 2.1. Besides being able to use overseas. Hardware specs seem very similar. Why all the hype?
