1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

Did any of you consider/look at the HTC passion before purchasing the Motorola?

    Wasn't really my style, but thought about it a little.

    From my understanding, Verizon will be getting the HTC Passion but in an Android OS version. Not Windows Mobile.

    I'm waiting for the Passion -- it's supposed to be awesome. Close to twice the processing power of the DROID, 4.3" capacitive touch screen, HTC Sense UI + Android 2.0, multi-touch in the browser, etc.

    One question I have about it, though, is that I understand some folks are having trouble with memory on DROIDs and other Android phones, specifically, there's only 256MB available to store application data -- i.e., they don't / can't get stored on MicroSD card. Is this true? If so, are there any good android options that don't have this limitation? I see this as a major issue -- and I want more space!!

    Thanks,
    Phil

    There's currently an app in the Market that allows for saving files to the SD card rather than the internal memory - though I forget the name of the app.

    I've kind of grown to like the look of the droid, it fits me better. Compared to the passion that looks like a BB storm...

    There is no official word on the HTC Passion yet. Nobody is even sure if it will be coming to Verizon or another network. A supposed picture was leaked but it was later said that it was an iPhone running a theme. I've also read that the Passion's snapdragon 1ghz processor will without a doubt have to be underclocked for battery purposes. Also, the processor is not the only thing that determines how fast a phone is. The specs on that thing look awesome if they turn out to be true, but without knowing when and where it will be released, I just couldn't pass up on the Droid. The thing about waiting is that you could spend forever doing it. There's always a better phone with bleeding egde specs right around the corner.
