    WOW I'm glad I didn't get a standard D2, the D2WE is much better. 20% more cpu clock speed by default and it's an awesome looking white. The only reason I didn't upgrade to begin with was because of the lack of an ability to use a custom kernel. I know kernels control more than CPU speed, but at 1.2ghz out of the box, that is sexy. Quadrant scored 1700+ out of the box, STOCK. Very impressed.

    I'd love to see a release date confirmed on this, really curious now.
    Also curious to see the price on both this and the R2D2 respectively.

    1709 is not bad, but there are other processors that perform better. Lets looks at the table here:

    Smartphone Benchmarks - Compare and submit performance benchmark speeds of HTC, Motorola, Samsung, LG, Sony Ericsson and other smartphones
    (they have added an entry for "Droid Pro" already!)

    As you can see, although a decent number, it is quite a bit lower than the new processor used by HTC Desire HD which is a second generation Snapdragon processor. It is lower than Samsung's Hummingbird as well. I think this is the limit of OMAP 3 based processors. With further optimization, the score will improve but so will the numbers for other phones.

    We need OMAP 4 based phones now. :)
