    Here is my take on it, until I see it, they can say anything they want, and if it has no micro SD card slot and non removable battery, they can keep it.

    I hope this is another Original Droid moment. That phone made me fall in love with Android.

    If it becomes a droid-line then vzw will call all shots, where as a phone like a s3 or note 2 that other carriers have vzw will be limited on what they can limit being other customers on a different carrier will be able to help vzw customers distinguish the difference. Though I would not be surprised if the vzw version did become a droid-line and the device was changed cosmetically to have more red and black with vzw branding all over the device. By the way just because vzw can not put a vzw logo on the home button will not prevent them from putting a vzw branded wall paper on the phone.

    Definitely has some possibilities. Odds are the Xperia ZL won't make it to VZ so I'll either have to jump ship or hold out for something else.

    I have a tendency to believe this.

    If it's not HD it might as well be a newspaper.

    I can't help it, but everytime I read that statement, "launching in May & coming in July." Does that mean every carrier launches it in May and Verizon releases theirs with a locked bootloader in July?

    IMO there's been a "game-changing" phone at least every year since probably as far back as I can remember. DEFINITELY since I started using a smartphone with the Blackberry Storm (yeah yeah, I know it sucked lol). The Xperia Z AND the SGS4 both figure to be serious game-changers in their own rights. With the Xperia Z being water-proof, supposedly having a far superior camera, the tempered glass screen, yadda yadda. The SGS4 with the big-little chip, flexible unbreakable screen, etc. I also Hope they include their 2GB DDR3 RAM chip, which they've already developed some time ago, THAT would instantly change the game. And then, once they start including the PowerVR G6630, the game will also change significantly. I expect '13 to be a huge year for smartphones, but in reality, every year probably was, they just seem less significant now that we've gotten used to them
