This may help cut further into the BlackBerry market-share by doing the traditional BlackBerry design better than, well, BlackBerry can. Hard-core "my phone has a 5-inch capacitive touchscreen with multi-touch and gestures powered by a quad-core 2GHz processor running Ice Cream Sandwich..." Android fans could probably care less, but I would imagine that business-enterprise customers will sit up and take notice. The Droid Pro sort of started this look for Android, but now it is becoming more popular (with the likes of Samsung and LG also making similar form factors for Android) and more familiar for previous BlackBerry users, I think.

Android is doing a 2 prong approach to attack their biggest competitors, Iphone and Blackberry. Most of the focus is on Iphone of course, but phones like this are for consumers that would traditionally side towards Blackberry, but with features Blackberry doesnt typically have like Touchscreen and Military spec.

Sprint won't be getting a Palm/HP Pre 3, so I guess this should theoretically make up for it. Still, I think I'd rather have the Pre 3 though. Damn you to pieces Hewlett Packard!
