    Meaningless MegaPixel numbers aside, you can look for this thing to have a superior camera thanks to the increased focal length from lens to CCD stage thanks to extra chassis depth afforded by chucking the hardware keyboard and popping out the back of the phone a few mm. Longer focal length = Larger CCD sensor = lower noise & better image quality

    If they keep the world radio in this thing Stateside, it will indeed be the phone to beat.

    Now I'm confused. I was supposed to get my Droid tomorrow. I don't know if I should wait for this or just get the Droid and hope this comes out in the next 30 days.

    I don't think this phone will be released in the U.S. in the next 30 days so you shouldn't be too worried. Just get the Droid you wont be dissapointed! This phone will probably come out later this year if it even comes out this year at all?? It also made no mention of a carrier which is very important as well but I would hope that it is Verizon!

    Don't expect the TV tuner on the US version. We don't have the bands that it picks up, which are a pretty South Korea specific thing. Even without that, this thing is definitely ba beast. Glad to see Moto keeping it going.

    You are probably right. Besides, by next year, 4G phones will probably be here anyway!
