    I thought Froyo would keep me happy with my Droid1 until the 2ghz beast came out, but after watching those videos I think I might just HAVE to have this phone. It's not really that huge lol, the girl in the video didnt seem to have any trouble with it, and women tend to have smaller hands than guys (as if everyone didnt already know that).

    hmmm...I just read some of the comments on engadget lots of complaining about this being too big? I thought the beauty of android was that we got to choose which phones we wanted? Droid 2 isn't going to be 4.4"?

    Just guessing, but probably around 600 without contact.

    Has a TI OMAP 3630 w/ PowerVR SGX530… no wonder its so fast!! I’m liking the nice screen. Wish it was Super AMOLED, though.

    I think it does have Froyo, considering the widget and the fact that the Adobe CEO will be attending the event for Verizon on June 23.

    I'm sure this is going to be a great phone, but I get the distinct feeling that some of you guys are going to dump this phone as soon as the next one comes out.

    It's your money. I'm not telling you how to spend it, but just look at the Incredible. It's a great phone, no doubt but when Froyo leaked it kind of got shoved in the corner IMHO.

    I'm hanging on to my Droid at lest until September, then I can see what's out then, what came out in the last couple of months and see if anything truly surpasses my Droid as it sits now or at that time. Who knows, Gingerbread may be out in September.

    I guess I'm a little more frugal with spending my dollars on a phone. I think the next phone I'll be looking at in September more then likely will be the Motorola Droid 2. But we will see.

    This looks great. Seems like there is a bunch of extras on there tho.
    But...nice to see out in the open.

    I've had my Droid since December. My wife is still stuck with her BB Curve (8330 (old)). We have different renewal times. Her's is coming up at the beginning of August. Fortunately, my wife is awesome. When I upgrade her, I get the new one and she takes my Droid.

    I may have found my new device.

    Ok while I really wanted a bigger screen, I have to say this borders on too big. Screen size would be great for GPS purposes, but I think it may be a little to big to comfortably handle one-handed. Not gonna make a decision until I can actually get it hand. But it is looking like I may pass due to size.

    I feel the same way. I want a phone with a bigger screen for gps navigation but this seems just a little bit too big. I'll have to handle both the Xtreme and the Droid 2 before I make a decision.

    BTW, first post on the forums. :)

    Same here. I'm 6'3 and I just held the HTC EVO the other day and it was a very nice feeling holding a phone of that size in my hand. To each his/her own though.
    I will definitely pay full retail for this phone when it comes out. Then I can just switch between it and my Droid if necessary. Hopefully rooting won't be far behind with this phone.
    My Droid hasn't let me down yet, but it will be nice to do a little fishing in the sea with some new gadgets :)

    I announced it right here in this forum that I was ditching the Droid and moving on to the EVO. I cancelled my order and got my money back JUST FOR THIS PHONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I Cannot wait. I will be in front of Verizon with the rest of the nerds, waiting to get mines!!

    Also...I dont care about motoblur. Blur isnt that bad and this phone is going to have a different version anyway so the blur issue (even if i did hate it) still wouldnt have stopped me from making the change.

    Dont worry about 4G, u cant really take advantage of it now. By the time u can, the EVO will probably be $100.

    But no front facing camera, after the iPhone 4 and the Samsung Galaxy S has it....

    hmmmm :confused:
