    its running the update we received on Dec 11th... was it activated that it received the OTA or did whoever you bought it from manually update it? I wouldn't think a prototype would have an OTA build.

    oh dunno, doesnt look like anyone changed the main board since on bootup its a white backround, also the phone is in perfect condition no blemishes to show its been taken apart, so i guess either a OTA or manual update no idea

    Beautiful...I've always preferred the look of Motorola's flagship devices over Apple because they adhere to a more Bauhausian form-follows-function, machine aesthetic versus minimalism for minimalism/dumbing-down's sake.

    The brushed metal screen bezel on the proto-type was actually a better design decision because it would have not have shown wear from scratches and rubbing that occurs with the black paint on production model.

    The large LED , silver grill, and black glass camera insert all contribute to a classy retro-chic techie look that most likely was nixed by VZWs purported concerns about the device looking too masculine and/or value engineering. IMO if anything, the prototype looks more like a piece of fine jewelry that I believe women would have found more attractive. That's what you get when you let the bean-counters and execs stick their hands into the design... =/
