Anyone want to hazard a guess as to why Droid_X_Doug has "Droid X" in his username? My guess is because he's a Verizon fanboy.

I like the concept of this phone. If only it was dual core, 4G, gingerbread, and made by htc...

Not a bad concept. It's a bit before it's time though. It's too thick and the bezel is annoying!
It's worth another shot once bendable screens become available and they can make it a lot thinner!

Kyocera? $200? I havent even heard of a kyocera since 05 when i had VM. Quite sad how some companies don't think logically with pricing. They might have had a chance with $99.
