    Yeah, well the specs area nearly identical to the Tbotl right? And that came in at 250 as well, so not that out of whack really. The Charge however is.

    Makes the $149 rumors about the Bionic very hard to believe. I almost shudder to think about how much they will try to charge for the first few dual-core LTE phones.

    You can still load google maps from the marketplace, and i don't think i ever use the search feature, i always end up on my browser where google is the main screen.
    Resistance is futile.

    it does look nice and sleak compared to the tbolt which is slightly more bulkier... which can be good depending on the person

    but the 5mp camera, 16gb mem card vs the tbolts 32 and no kickstand makes me wonder if it would be worth it over the tbolt... besides the form factor i dont see anything on this phone that makes it compete with the tbolt... everything this phone has the tbolt has plus more

    Why is this not rolling out with 2.3 on it? I'm still a little confused as to why all these new phones are still coming out with froyo on them. The kickstand isn't a deal breaker, if I'm going to watch movies, it's either on my tv or laptop. Confused as to why it's coming with Bing Search and Bing Maps. <--Just odd. Mobile hotspot for 4G, wondering how much extra that will cost? Maybe when this comes out, the 4G bugs are fixed? Hmmmm, I don't know, might look into this with my upgrade.

    I'd rather have someone crap in a box and put a 4g sticker on it before I bought this phone. It is NOT basically the same as TB. This phone has less Ram, I believe at 512mbs and has Bing. I know the evils of Bing first hand, I have a fascinate.

    According to the Verizon site, the Sony Xperia Play will come with 2.3.
