    Nice nice.
    And wow an LTE Blackberry, RIM's steppin' up!
    Too bad the specs are trash compared the slew of superphones we'll FINALLY BE GETTING! Sheesh why do Tmo and Sprint get all the nice phones! Sprints got a killer lineup!

    One of the owners where I work has been walking around with a SGII his business partner picked up overseas and I recognized it instantly and tried to pin him down to ask about it but he just kinda flashed the screen at me and confirmed that's what it was and moved on (imagine Larry David on redbull and that describes his personality to a T).

    Anyway, the phone is sexy as hell.. and I say that thinking most of these leaked superphone pics make them all seem the same. I hope they get the thing out here soon and find a way to cram a LTE radio without altering the form.[/QUOTE]

    I didn't mean to infer that he had some kind of US version or that its activated with a US carrier, its the one that's been released months ago. His business partner spends a lot of time in Israel. If you really want, I could try and snap a picture of him holding it while he walks by but you're probably better off googling stock photos.

    If I had it long enough to tinker with it Id probably check out the camera or load some heavy duty apps and see how much faster it is than this Tandy Droid 386 I'm sill using.

    The phone has been out overseas for a while. I don't see why you would need a pic of it.

    Completely untrue. You might be thinking of the DX1. The Droid 1 was pure Android 2.0.

    The D1 was NOT completely Google because it had Verizon bloatware. The Nexus S is a completely untouched/unbloated...pure Google phone.

    I don't recall having any Verizon bloatware on my Droid.

    So by that rationale (plus the unlockable bootloader one) there's been one pure Google device released ever? I think you guys need to lax that definition a bit. The D1 was essentially pure Google.

    There was no skin, no forced widgets, and it was easily hackable. That's all I want in a device right now. I could care less if the Amazon MP3 store is installed on the Nexus Prime.

    There was ZERO bloat on the OG Droid. You could DL VVM from the market if you wanted it as well as Amazon apps.. but none came pre-loaded.

    Yup, same here. D1 was very close to stock, but VVM, Amazon Mp3, and a specialized Calendar app were bloat that couldn't be deleted.

    Mine didn't have VVM, but it did have Amazon MP3.

    I'm curious about the Calendar thing. I believe mine is Google's stock calendar. What is the Moto one like?
