    I'm glad vzw priced this at $199 for 2 year. A lot better then the $299 they've been doing for LTE phones.

    I wonder if this thing is going to sell. I'm going to stop by my VZW store this weekend to check it out. Just out of curiosity...

    Wow. How did this one slip under my nose?

    Time for a trip to my local VZW store.

    Stopped by a store at lunch to have a look. Stupid security device makes it hard to get a feel.

    Overall a nice size, about the same a the Razr, just thicker. About as think as the Razr bump. I think it feels better in the hand than the Razr. Very nice display. Of course you can't see what would be like in sunlight. Makes my OG Droid look sad.

    Installed and ran AnTuTu Benchmark. A respectable total score of 6600.

    Not a fan of the glossy plastic. Would need to get some sort of protection.

    No vehicle mount available yet. That is a must have for me.

    Anyway. It is now at the top of my list. Although I'll likely wait a week for to see what early issues crop up.

    It seems very similar to the HTC Rezound. Complete with its own gimmicky audio setup.

    Vehicle mount is now available so I've ordered my phone. Probably will not be in until Wednesday.

    I'm glad my unlimited data is grandfathered. HD Nexflix over LTE, WOO HOO!
