    Exactly, that's a lot of beef for $599, plus it has data/3G built in where as the iPad with 32GB and 3G will be over $599.

    That is not a high price at all for unsubsidized. That's actually normal price, which will put the phone in the $199 with contract range.

    Can it be assumed that when this is released, the price of the Moto Droid will go down? I know a few people who desperately want one but will either have to buy it unsubsidized or in-store (rather than online).

    Yeah.... I read it on BGR that it has WiFi N... At $600, I think I would stick with my Droid until my NE2 comes up...

    I think it's a tremendous value considering the vast amount of plastic they give you from looking at that picture. It's hard to see whether there is more plastic or screen space.

    The only thing I don't like about the phone so far is how the housing on the camera lens sticks out. But man am I debating on getting it. I couldn't upgrade when the Droid came out so I paid the full retail price for it, but I am now eligible for the new every two arrrrghhh

    what to do

    I had a moto droid for about two weeks and lost my job so I returned it, but loved the phone. Now I have a new job and don't know what phone I want to get. I'm leaning toward the Incredible, but want to wait to make sure it will be root-able and as hackable as the the moto.. Decisions Decisions....
