    Yeah, I just don't want to be the one telling people I have some girly named phone when I used to have a Droooid.

    Give ATT the girl name, and us the T2.

    So the Greek mountain which was supposedly "Home of the Gods" is girly? Odd way of thinking, IMHO.

    Perhaps if it was the home of the "gods", but it wasn't and that is why it is called "myth"ology.

    Now Mt. Fuji, that name has a certain ninja appeal to it.

    Call it the Moto Fuji. :)

    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.
