    Sweet looking phone... however I don't get why one side is rounded and the other isn't (?)
    The bracket/stylus is a nice idea. Choice of two colors (red/gray)... not bad. That chrome bezel really jumps out at you!

    It's a sharp device.

    Also, it looks like it doesnt have the typical android look on the OS....think they build up something based upon android?

    i'm digging the one side rounded... just don't know why... well nevermind, i guess that clears my own confusion... they did it because it looks cool. duh, shame on me.

    I wanna know about the slider keyboard too... is it there? is it not?
    looks like iPhone-ish icon pack on the phone.

    I like the design, would be nice if they offered us design options, never understood why they don't?

    Maybe they have it rounded on one side so when you have it in landscape mode if feels smoother on your fingers since that's where the weight rests.

    That could be true, if you landscape that phone it would feel more like a PSP in your fingers.... sounds logically

    Its a nice looking phone but I don't see how it even resembles the Droid other then being made by motorola and having a touch screen. I dont even believe it is running android, it looks like a cheap knockoff of android. I think that if it was an android phone you would see Google's name slapped somewhere on it and still see some of the signiture looks on the android OS and some of the apps.

    Hmmm?

    Just because this new handset runs an Android OS doesn't make it a DROID, and to be quite honest, this doesn't resemble the Android OS in the least.

    Frankly, I'm not really into this Moto smartphone, and find the (actual) DROID much more appealing.​

    Well, as written before, thats just rumors....

    But i just think its real stylish, and if it has a snapdragon and some more RAM
    it could be a real burner, running android.

    Also it has a really nice style!

    Just some details for you guys from China. The phone has been released and has relatively the same hardware specs as droid except only comes with a 4Gig SD card. Its UI, called ophone is built on top of android 1.5 much like sense UI to accomodate chinese users . Here is the kicker, it costs 5500RMB, which is roughly 800USD. Arent you glad you live in the good old USA?

    Thanks for the Info, lil pricey for me! I know when I lived in Japan, the Cell phone plans were ridiculously priced for what minutes you got. This was before texting was all that popular. Phone is sleek, but I wont be trading my :motdroidhoriz: for awhile! Well atleast til my upgrade is due... LOL

    Other info I have found as a developer.. it has it's own Market for apps in China. I could be wrong on this..but it would make sense.. I am guessing most of the users in China speak/read chinese and thus American/english apps wouldn't make much sense. However, I am so far bummed to find out it will be difficult for us American developers to put our apps up on the oPhone market. I've not looked lately, but last I read it wasn't going to be easy. Barring the obvious... localizing the text in english apps to chinese, I would have thought there would be some way to reach that market for any app. The thought that my app could also be on the oPhone market and reach another potentially 500 million customers would be amazing! If anyone has info on this issue.. if they china customers can get to our market, or some other info on this, please post it.

    I really don't think China will allow anything made by Google in after what happened.

    Current Politics are scary , Google is pissed at China , trying to hack into Google and Motorola is caught up in the middle , so if China continues Google will pull out and that will hurt Motorola , well the whole globe as well .
