What is the release date of the DROID FANTABULOUS.
I know the European version has been rooted shoot the GSM us versions have been rooted. I'm just hopeing for a quick root for this. Can care less if it has the Droid branding. Vzw release it and please don't lock it down
The device will not be branded as a Droid. Remember not all Android phones get the Droid branding... LG Ally... and lets not forget that Verizon is getting the worst version of the Galaxy S only 2Gb internal storage where the others have 16Gb

Yes and the Vibrant comes with 16Gb internal and 2Gb Micro SD... Which is the better choice? 32GB + 16Gb = 48Gb versus the max 34Gb on the Facinate... look I wish this phone were the best, I'm a Verizon customer and its going to be the phone I get my wife but thats pathetic, I'll bet you they still charge $199 on contract and $499 off contract... if its cheaper then it wont be so bad but I'm not going to bet it on being any cheaper.
Yeah I would not want a android phone w/o google!! I almost forgot why I went with the X over this phone till I read through this post and remembered it is going to be powered by nasty Bing!!!
Honestly it is a very nice looking phone, I saw it in the BB ad and was like oh that looks slick, BUT again if it is not google I dont want it! To bad though.... :(
Isn't all that V-Cast stuff additional charges? It was on my old phone and I hated it. Locked up junk that made it difficult to interact with the phone. VZ Navigator was additional cost also so why would I want that stuff???
