    $99.00 after a $50.00 mail-in rebate is a great price for this phone. It may not be a hit for enthusiasts but for your average consumer I can see this handset flying off the shelves. Anyone picking one of these up for a family member or themselves?

    I'm seriously considering it as I've come to like the smaller form factor better. Though the qhd screen might be a put-off...

    It definitely looks like a good phone, especially for those who appreciate a small form factor without sacrificing screen size.

    Yeah, I can't wait! It is going to be a tough decision as to whether I stick with my Maxx or the Razr M. It looks like the only thing I lose with the M is the battery life (at this time, no problem because always have access to juice), no HDMI (still no problem because I never use it), lousy front facing camera (again, never use it), but the biggy is only 4.5 GB internal storage. Not sure how that will work with the amount of apps I install on my phones. But I really do not think that is a problem because my Maxx has approximately 4GB dedicated to Internal System Storage and I have over 2GB unused. The remaining 8GB internal sdcard storage built into my Maxx I can make up with my own ext sdcard.

    I think the tiny little beast will be faster with better memory and processor. Screen size is the same size as my Maxx so losing nothing there. Not sure about the compass... if it really does not have one and does it serve a purpose I really need if I am not even aware of it on my Maxx. I guess only time will tell, what, if anything, I am going to miss about my Maxx.

    Ever since I got the N7 I have shunned my phone a bit, feel kind of bad but that tablet is too amazing. I couldn't give up my MAXX but this phone is indeed intriguing.

    Thanks PC! That answered some questions I had while waiting for this phone. Funny how different websites reported specs for this phone vary. Some say has HDMI, others not. This definitely confirms the answer to that question. I think the white is ugly but I definitely am not gonna complain about the color.

    I don't have the MAXX and really haven't had a problem with the battery life of my RAZR until this past Friday. I was at a concert and the battery died just as my favorite band came on. :mad: Anyway, if battery life is a future concern, you could do what I did and buy a pocket charger. I picked up the Motorola P793 on eBay BRAND NEW for $23.50. Definitely worth it for when I go to my next concert!
