    I was going to pay the ETF and get a new line because i was not yet eligible for the upgrade to Droid. The lady at the verizon store was nice and told me i could pay for the one year price, upgrade and keep my number. It ended up costing me about 350 but i got the 100 rebate so all in all about 250.

    Nice...now do what I did, or depending on what phone you had prior to getting your new Droid. I sold my BB Storm on eBay in November and got $185 for it. So, since mine was $299 minus the $100 rebate, I basically got a free Droid. Just something to consider.

    *OFF TOPIC*

    Does anyone know if there will be an unlocked CDMA Nexus?

    Why would processor speed make something "un-compatable"?

    HTC Supersonic???

    I guess we Android users always have to be stuck in a pickle. I have the Nexus One and the Droid running all the 2.1 apk's instead of root. Now we jump to 3.0??? Really, what else is our phones guna do, run towards the wall and pull a matrix backflip ended with the oh so enticing "Droid". LOL....

    Won't matter, as you can't switch carriers with CDMA devices. You can't take a Sprint phone and port to Verizon, and vice versa.

    And to contribute my part to this article - 2.1 is still Eclaire, it's just a big maintenance update I think. Froyo is what is coming out AFTER 2.1 - which will probably premier on a different device before it comes out to an existing device.

    My 2 pennies state that this is probably their way of keeping people interested. They'll update a new phone with the latest and greatest, and 2 months later everyone will be caught up again. New phone, new OS, 2 months later on-par. Except, of course, for the faster CPU/GPU, or new functionalities, or other hardware differences.

    Yep, just like how the Droid got Google Navigation turn-by-turn directions exclusively, then later on everyone could get it from the market.

    I remember seeing an update notification and comments like "omg it gives turn by turn directions" and I was thinking "Hmm...my phone has been doing this since I bought it, nothing new...".

    It's just marketing to entice people to buy the newest device. Impatient users will jump and buy it.

    HTC Supersonic???

    You Know, I have been using the Nexus One for about 2 weeks. FIRST OFF IF IT WASN'T FOR cyanogen & Modaco I WOULD HAVE RETURNED THIS RIGHT BACK TO GOOGLE IN A HEART BEAT. The Makin Bacon Kernel Is STUPID Fast and the Custom Rom from Modaco is Dumb Fast too. Set some SetCpu rules in play and viola, Now We have a Nexus One. Not Under-clocked to 674 and whack kernel of 2.1.

    So I hope this Htc Supersonic is something of a God Sent Child, something where Google visited the Oracle, cause honestly, i Have Two Droid's, Wife and me plus the Nexus One... All of it is the same thing, But, do not get me twisted, Android will by far, Forever be the leading edge not just in Mobility, But, Human Interaction with the most Intimate thing a human needs, something that does (Droid Does More Than Nexus) everything and makes us even more lazier..... LOL....

    The Droid is the begining of VERY a great relationship with Moto and Google. Apple and Microsoft are scared ****less. The Iphone with Bing???? The Doid is amazing quality. Take a close look at any HTC hardware.
