    lol I was just going to say that......

    I'd like to note that this is only the code name for it at this time. There will more than likely be a name change.

    Lol, frankly I'm quite concerned about bat life on this beast, 2 1ghz A9s? and on TSMC's hopefully-mature 40nm node? Hopefully my fears will be allayed but all-day bat life is pretty important to me.

    Ah well, ill wait for a dual core with a slide out keyboard. Also wonder what 4g pricing will look like. I'm paying 80 bucks a month and using about 3 gigs of data, if using that amount of data on 4g can cost ~ 10 bucks more ill go for it. But I will no way justify paying more than $100 a month for a smartphone, I don't care if it can do flips. Best case senario would be $40-50/month for unlimited 4g and a cheaper minutes plan.

    I just keep multiple batteries and charge them all at night. You might not want to do that but I'm not too worried about the battery life. I'll just switch em out lol. I'm pretty sure that it'll have at least decent life though. They probably wouldn't want to release a phone that you were always having to charge.

    Tablet just refers to the form factor. In other words, no slideout keyboard, just a screen.

    We're assuming. It's a logical assumption, but it's still an assumption. Besides, remember the fact that this is all based on RUMOR!

    Not saying it's not true, just that it is.

    Very True!!!! I was like ohhhhhh the Droid X, sweet. Can't wait to get that. Now I am like ohhh the Olympus/T2, can't wait to get that. I am sure by January I will be wanting something else that is rumored to come out. I keep on waiting. Love my Droid 1, which is a major reason I have no problem waiting. But if this phone is going to support LTE, I am sold. I have been up for an upgrade for 2 months.

    Yes, it has the worst battery life. You said "...they probably wouldn't release a phone that you'd have to charge all day" and I answered with "HTC did, its called the Incredible". I really hate it, its getting sold back to Verizon for the vPhone. My Droid1 is far superior to my Dinc.
