    Confirmation? REALLY? People familiar with it say it's launching the beginning of next year? Are these the same people that were familiar with it this past June and the multiple times over the course of the past 3 years? I think I speak for a lot of folks that yes it may very well happen but until I see Apple and/or VZW drop the bomb I am taking it with a grain of salt. Not that I care... I have a Droid. :icon_ banana:

    Where's the let down in the Droid Pro? Anyway, the iPhone if it does come will be a CDMA version of the current unit. Then the Tegra 2 based Droid comes out from Motorola and others will follow putting the iPhone 2 generations behind in hardware. Let's not forget Gingerbread is due shortly as well.

    If nothing else, I hope a verizon iphone will get some of my friends and family to switch so I can lower my plan minutes. I also think that will force the android phones to step up their game.

    I totally agree! I had the original iPhone then the 3G then the 3GS and I sold my 3GS's shortly after and switched to Droid, then just upgraded to the Droid X. At first I was missing some of the features of email with Exchange like moving to folders or having all my email not just 30 days max. But now got those features and more with the Droid X.

    Granted alot of issues came from ATT's network dropped calls, slow, etc. Wife kept her iPhone off 3G cause when on it would drop calls at home. Got tired of having to Jailbreak it just to use things that Apple wouldn't allow in the App Store.

    Droid is way better for network, and open source so things that Apple will never see like Flash, and streaming slingbox over 3G you can do on Verizon. I know some people will go back to iPhone I know one and he hates the new iPhone is already looking at switching back lol. A lot of people switched from iPhone to Droid cause they were tired of the issues and problems. I also like being able to have insurance on my phones which you can't have on iPhone. Like last month my droid went for a swim and didn't like it but put in a claim and got another one. iPhone replace yourself cause water isn't covered and you pay full price for new one.

    Im an Android user, not a BB user. The Droid Pro was a let down to me. As I said it is MY humble opinion. Im sure some of the ex-BB users will really like the Pro. With all the speculation in the last 8 months about the Pro, the last thing I think ANYONE expected to see was a BB-knock off.

    And what exactly are the big new features that you are waiting for in Gingerbread?

    Well the whole UI is supposed to be completely revamped. Google hired the head of WebOS design and judging from how smooth and sexy WebOS is I can't wait. Not to mention that Google is also supposed to be adding some GPU support in the UI similar in how iOS handles the UI to make it much smoother. Of course there are the improvements and changes that Google hasn't let out of the bag yet so I am sure there will be some nice treats coming along as well.

    That's a pretty strong statement considering most credible sales projections include the "multiple carrier" scenario for the iphone. Although your 2 month sales leap statement might make sense due to the existing Verizon holdouts and Att haters that are wanting to switch, you're still saying that the 30 new Android models coming over the next year won't be able to keep up with analysts' prediction of 10m/year new Vzw iphones?? (Consider the Galaxy S just sold 5m in 2 months on 4 carriers). Basically, I disagree -- see Gartner Research on Mobile OS sales (Gartner Says Android to Become No. 2 Worldwide Mobile Operating System in 2010 and Challenge Symbian for No. 1 Position by 2014). They are not the #1 research company in the world for no reason.....:)

    Notice I said "in the us", samsung sold 5 million Galaxys world wide, and I don't believe they've sold that many anyway, thats probably just shipped units. Its not like I've seen galaxy s sold out at any store. IPhone4, sold out at every store.... yeah I stand by my prediction.... now if the CDMA iPhones also go to China Mobile... then IOS will be overall leader.
