    Wow. Thisll be cool.
    But is it just me or is $60 way to much for data per month. I would never spend that much

    Quick question, the op mentions that the Droid pro would be a phone with global capabilities, does that indicated it's lte based or just having the usual cdma/GSM frequenc? Can someone confirm or speculate this

    Global does not mean LTE, it means GSM quad-band and CDMA since we here on Verizon are using an "outdated" lower-frequency network.

    AT&T is running GSM, Verizon is running CDMA. Other than incompatibility and the impossibility of using our phones on another carrier's network, how does our service stack up against theirs?

    CDMA uses a lower-frequency signal than GSM. In areas where there are obstructions or the signal needs to carry further, CDMA is actually better -- however, GSM carries more data per cycle. It's like the move from 900Mhz cordless phones to 2.4Ghz. Remember how much further we used to be able to go with our old clunky cordless phones? Same deal.

    FRG01B Heating issue

    I upgraded my un-rooted phone to the FRG01B last week off of google's servers. My phone gets too hot during a phone call and specially during data activity. Is that issue solved in the latest version of FRG01B ?

    Apparently they're working on a dual-core 1Ghz Tegra-based phone. That would qualify as 2Ghz when spoken by someone who is in the same league as the genius who thought two external antennas right where people touch their phones...
