    WSJ posted an article today stating that the Google Shamu is expected to be released later this month. More and more Shamu news coming from more reputable sources. Think it is safe to say this is no longer a myth device but a reality.

    Too big for my main phone. This sure makes my decision easier. Now it's simply between the Moto X 2nd Gen (as it's called on Motorola's own website,) and the Droid Turbo, and frankly the Turbo I think is going to win the battle for me.

    Yeah not looking to have a phablet of a phone. Wonder if a smaller version of the Nexus 6 will come out, I think coming out with a phablet sized Nexus device could be a misstep from Google.

    Like Fox, I'd rather have a smaller device. Moto X or Xperia z3v for me though.

    Foxkat, if I was on Verizon I would go droid turbo. It by far has better specs and it's not like you missing something with the moto x2 being locked down. Actually the moto x2 may get update faster as there is no blur to worry about.

    Yeah, and for me the only other possible thing that could sway my decision to go Moto X (2nd Gen), would be the Developer Edition. Now, if they offer a Dev Ed for the TURBO!!!! Bring it on! :)

    P.S., I miss all the neat animated GIF emoticons of the old system... The Bananna and others were fun to use.

    I was really hoping the Turbo would be a 4.7" screen. Oh well, still looks to be the best option out there (especially for those of us who still use our phone to, you know, make calls).
