Can't wait until this phone comes out...GO VZW!!
I have so many questions about this phone! Does it support multi touch recognition? Exceleromiter? Electronic cumpase? Well I guess I only had three questions.
multi touch was patent by apple. Jobs said that in his Key note
yeah Apple patented the gestures, you cannot patent the act of recognizing more than one touch
microsoft has had multi-touch hi def tables and media centers for years. LOOK IT UP!!! but comment 24 is right, they can patent their multi-touch guestures all they want. Nokia is also working on multi "touch" that is more like a sensor from a 2-3 in distance from the device. Let apple "patent" that technology.
yea, i really dont think anyone would know the answers to any of your questions because these pictures just leaked

I can confirm per Verizon insider Omie, that it does have an accelerometer. The compass and multi-touch we don't know.I've asked several times and he hasn't commented either way. Sounds like good news.

That sounds pretty stupid. who woiuld want to use their phone a few inches away from the actual screen.

Pretend? What in the world are you talking about? The Thunder has an accelerometer!
thats not completely true... HP is coming out w/ a touch screen labtop that incorporates multi-touch cuz they paid apple a buttload of $ for some of the rights to it.

57. amerind2007 (unregistered)
when your on the phone and calling someone to conserve battery which usually stays on with regular phones it detects whether to turn off the back light or not

"Live pictures"? Are you drunk!? The only images of this device that have appeared anywhere on the internet have been CG renders, and not very detailed renders at that.

BIG question: does this have a camera? i doubt it......
Yes it will have a 2.0 mp camera
It does have a Camera, BGR reported this with the original picture that shows the Side Key/Camera Key http://www.phonearena.com/html

WTH, only 2 MP, this is so low for such high-end device... i wish i was born in europe :(
15. C-Chickie (unregistered)
Well look at The Curve and The Pearl: The Pearl's camera is 2MP The Curve's camera is only 1.3MP.
correction the curve has a 2.0
Verizon Wireless' Curve is 2.0
i havent seen any sources saying its 2mp where did you come up with that?

3rd Quarter this year
Fakes, 100% on all of them. Image stolen from the fake released by BoyGeniusReport and images pasted. Notice the seemingly large glare in the bottom of the screen? Now check out yours:http://www.phonearena.com/html
s/showimage.php?m=Articles.ImaFirstly notice the same exact glare. Ok, so it's a glare, nothing big, right? Check out the side shot:http://www.phonearena.com/html ges&f=name&id=17349&v= s/showimage.php?m=Articles.ImaSame exact glare, but the phones in a different position? How is that possible? It isn't. Sorry Jrappy, that's called Debunking an image. To explain it a little, glare (as we all know) is caused by light reflecting off of a surface. Depending on the angle of the phone, will determine the shape of glare, and amount of glare. However, having a phone with the SAME EXACT glare in 2 positions is impossible. All they did was a simple rotation of canvas in photoshop, and pasted some images over BGR's images. ges&f=name&id=17348&v=
You mean that blue circle at the bottom of the screen? Uhm yea, thats a gradient in the menu design... not a glare. Besides, every photo released by a manufacture has the screen photoshopped in.
no, hes talking about the "light reflection" that can be seen at the top left and bottom right, which follow the curves of the phone the problem with his argument is that, as always, these are just cgi renderings. its not fake, its just not an actual flesh and blood unit. look at other rim leaks, such as the kickstart, and youll see the exact same thing
Although it would take moving the light source, it's far from impossible to have the same reflection from different angles.
I cant wait :)
This sounds bad, when was the estimated date for release? was it around 3q 2008?

Here's the first indication that the Thunder has RIM's patented multi-touch. http://forums.crackberry.com/f
finally. waited for a blackberry that uses vcast music. OTA downloads.
31. OOSOSSOSO (unregistered)
firstly, the device will have a 3.2MP camera, and it won't have a Vcast music store download app, it will have its own software for a music download through another company not verizon, and for all the retards out there, NO NO and NO verizon is not going to cripple the GPS on here that you will probably not even use anyway, you just wanted to throw your 2cents in because you read it in an article once..
some actually useful news, thank you very much
Interesting... By other company are you refering to the new raphsody partnership. That sounds like its going to cement the deal for me. I'd been debating about the dare but when I realized I still have another month to go I figured I might just wait for this. Sounds like it will be a good decision.
This is going to be a Verizon/Vodaphone Blackberry, they will probably make it the same for both carriers and make apps available for each. Verizon with VZ Nav and Rhapsody Music and whatever Voda partners with, but I doubt they will lock it down like BT profiles or GPS. BB Media Sync seems to show up with iTunes syncing cabilities. Probably because VCast video and Rhapsody Music doesn't give you a downloadable movie store. So unless a new partnership with a movie/tv show download store comes up with BB, Verizon, or Vodaphone I think they may just package it with iTunes syncing.

My contract's been over since January, the wait better be worth it...
39. Messiah (unregistered)
am i the only one that noticed that is seems to be using the SPRINT music store??
how do you know? If you are talking about at the top of the screen, that says spirit. So unless you know something we don't, it probably is the blackberry media player.
No, it says SPIRIT, which is the name of the album that its playing
the name of the artist is S P I R I T haha i made the same mistake thinking it said Sprint

I can not believe there are still dopes stuck on the i-phone?... LOL i-phone = better? How so? In what way? Times change, the i-phone was and still is a really "neat" device, its obsolete now, get over it... seriously~! You just make yourself sound like one of those fools who drive around with a bumper sticker that says Elvis is alive! ha ha ha.... So take your i-phone, and your myths about Elvis, and tupac, and kick rocks! Game over... i-phone = Has been, Thunder = bomb A55 phone!!
nobody likes you
i agree number 53
47. VZW Employee (unregistered)
Can't wait for this phone to be released. I think I might actually sign up for a Verizon Employee plan once this phone comes out lOl... I'm currently still using T-Mobile because my fiance pays for it.
54. VZW (unregistered)
Way to support the company you work for. I bet you walk around at work with your T-Mobile phone in your pocket and even bring it out to check texts while your working. You should be fired. I myself support the company that makes me a living. 5 employee phones. 1 business phone and an IQ phone. Count them up! Of course my family uses the ones I dont. it really upsets me when people do things like this and talk about how the I-Phone is the greatest. And these people work for VZW!!!! I dont walk around America claiming that I want to be communist and that China is the best country in the world. No!
so what if that guy has tmobile and works for verizon who gives a shit. I seen other people doing the same thing I went to a sprint store and everybody that work there had at&t cell phones. Nobody wants a verizon cell phone because they all suck and your network it crap
58. Krystle (unregistered)
It is very clear that you know nothing about verizon, its network or its phones. I work for a wireless company too and I do think it is not proper to pull a phone out that is from another provider when you are work. If I go into a sprint store and everyone has ATT, what is going to make me want to buy there when they are obviously saying that they do not like there own network?! Think things through before you try to make someone look stupid. P.S. My guess is you have T-Mobile too from the way you said that and everyone knows that the only reason they are still in business is because there plans are cheap just like there service.
No Krystel I have At&t because a verizon phone will not work in my house
