    Well there is always new stuff and better stuff to come.
    YOU have the choice....go and buy...or die!

    I dont think it will be a droid-killer. It got stronger hardware, but the OS is the same!
    So where is the deal about it?

    I don't think anything is going to be a "Droid Killer" anytime soon! The Droid is packed with some awesome hardware that will hold its own just fine against anything that comes to the market in the next year...

    there's alway's something better just around the corner. Do you want to get in on the release or wait for the next gen? that's always the question. I love my droid, but know in probably 2 months there's going to be a "better" or newer device out, oh well! Hey! In 2 years those newer devices will be old and antiques :)

    HTC makes great products, Google is determined to take over the world, im sure itll be nice.

    but new devices come out almost every 3 months, so its nothing new. some people jsut have to remain content with what they have.

    Its HTC and AT&T how good could it be: )

    On a serious note. Droid killer? No. Moto Droid is Google branded. They are not going to cut off their nose despite their face.

    ill admit this, att&t in my area was great. i never had any problems, im in houston,tx.

    but going away from houston and going inbetween towers was just horrendous.

    What makes it a 'Google Phone' rather than simply a new Android device? Just the possibility of marketing it themselves/via the alliance?
