This is what its all about, first Alltel is bought out and now this, but wonder how it will hold up against the dare? Guess we will have to wait on the specs..

actually Nokia makes several phones (N series) that are much better in terms of camera, internet speed, battery life, functionality, memory, etc. than both iphone and blackberry. The problem is I can't find a service provider who will carry such high end Nokia phones in USA to offset the cost of the phone itself.

This will give Steve Jobs sleepless nights!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, i'm still waiting to hear if RIM will be using thier 'multi-touch' UI that they were working on. I'm guessing that its ready, which is why they made this touchscreen Blackberry. AWESOME.

Verizon Wireless will never offer the iPhone. Verizon was offered it first and turned it down. The primary reasons were that the phone could not support high speed data transfer, which was foolish. And Apple's strict marketing requires all maintence to be completed in an Apple store instead of what would have been VZW stores. And too, Apple wanted too much of profit from each phone. Those are reasons why VZW's financial stability is much much higher than everyone else.

Think about it right after i phone launched verizon came out with the specs for any manufacturer to make handsets for them as long as it meets certain specs and tests. so when the exclusivity is over with att i can guess what apple will do.

i know it doesn’t include gsm i said in my first comment once the exclusivity is done. and at that point then apple will be able to develop one for cdma and with Verizon coming out with open device that gives them a road map to develop one and bypass helping i phone customers in the vzw stores sense it will be directly through apple

um... the touch diamond isnt going to come to the US for a while... i think they said till the end of the year...??? and wouldnt you want a blackberry for a business device over the HTC Touch Diamond? i mean, really??? RIM BlackBerry controls over 50% of the smartphone market... and that is for a reason...

Verizon is just AMAZING now! I think I'd rather the Dare than this, though, because of my needs.

hahahah!!! r u kidding me? you cant compare the LG Dare and the RIM BlackBerry Thunder. Those two are totally out of the same class!!! one is for power business-users and the other is for just regular people. 2) the LG Dare looks like shit! and no one really knows what the BlackBerry Thunder will look like, but it will probably be so much better. 3) if you want a regular phone, i suggest you wait for the LG 9700 or something like that. it is coming out in the 3rd quarter this year, and it is almost the same as the LG Prada (with a few tweaks)...
