    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:

    What do you need a front facing camera for?

    For Myspace self-shots and awkward video calls.

    ^ lol exactly

    Why is everyone stressing so hard on a front facing camera. Like it makes the phone or not.

    Because since Apple is doing it, it will now become the "next big thing." It may not be a big deal to not have one right now, but a year from now, they will probably be commonplace among high-end smartphones. Heck, even the EVO (this phone's most direct competitor) has one. The point is that there isn't a very good reason for a phone this large and powerful to NOT have one. If you don't like it or don't see the point don't use it. It won't add that much to the cost of the phone.

    Exactly the point I was getting at by mentioning both the iPhone and the EVO.

    Yea, I know a couple phones have it, but what is it used for? Or what will it be used for next year? Video conferencing and looking at yourself?

    Its about competition. Ppl will probably switch to Sprint for the EVO 4G just for trying to use 4G, ppl will switch carriers just to use a phone with a front facing camera. The iPhone already showed ppl will switch carriers just for the phone alone.

    I can see ppl saying "aww man. It doesnt have a front facing camera, Imma get the other phone that does." Lost sale just for it not having a feature that at least 2 other phones will have.

    I want Motorola to outdo everybody else. I want them to strive to be number 1.
