    Any thoughts on battery life potential with the Tegra 2 and qHD screen?

    Also, do we expect this to be rootable?

    I'm sick of waiting for the Bionic and I think the LTE buzz will be tarnished a bit when VZW lets loose their tiered data plans in June. Something tells me $29.99 for unlimited is going out the window.

    Drool, drool, pant, pant...

    Seriously considering ordering one tonight, as I can't seem to find a store that will have them tomorrow here in Northern VA. Manassas won't, and Dulles won't, and I can't drive all over the place. Guess I'll have on Friday courtesy of the FEDEX guy...maybe. Anybody know what retail cost will be?

    Dual core = dancedroid HOT HOT dancedroid
    qHD display = :icon_eek: relief :icon_eek: when reading those ginormous PDF's!

    Are the exterior dimensions exactly the same? I hope so -- that would probably seal the deal for me ... recently got this nice Seidio case for the DX...

    The real question is, will I be able to root it before I have to charge it? :) Me thinks so... :icon_ devil:

    Okay I take that back ... No, rooting won't be a challenge.

    Going back to Froyo. That'll be a challenge. PLUS, my DX LOVES Gingerbread. (And a deodexed framework with a nice sexy theme and stuff.)

    Hmmm...maybe I will wait...I dunno.

    Retail Price...

    ...on verizonwireless.com store site for $449.99. Ordering NOW!


    Okay, so I waited like almost 10 minutes. That's long enough. Guess I'm just a big kid.

    Sorry for the post-whoring. ;) I'm just excited.

    My order is in; I'll have it before 3:00PM on Friday. SWEET! Too bad I have to hop on a plane @ 7:00PM on Friday, will have essentially no time to mess with it before-hand. In the bag it goes, and I'll have some fun messing with it on the trip.

    Got mine today at BB for $199. Probably won't be getting 4G here until 2012 so this will be a great fill in until then. So much faster than my D1, especially on downloads. Things that used to take 3+ minutes now happen in seconds. I'm very pleased so far.
