    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 :)
