VZWProduct Testr, thanks for the insight. regarding verizon smart phones - I have been working at a Verizon store for a new months and am curious how the product compares to the WiMAX smartphone, the Samsung Epic 4G. You are never wrong! Can anyone help me with this?

Thats because the Omnia sucked! "many more things that comes the the samsung territory" what planet are you on where samsung is such a dominant force in the market? Name me one great phone that they've made. What, the Omnia? Omnia 2? Saga? Rogue? Trance? Intensity? Seriously the only one I've been able to recommend in my career selling Verizon has been the Reality and that's just because customers are getting tired of the EnV Touch. My favorite customers are pretentious idiots like yourself who read little blogs and think you know everything. The phone isn't even out yet how can you possibly say it is better than everything else?! You're actually WORSE than people who think the iPhone is a better phone just because it's an iPhone. Oh, and for the record, the iPhone actually has a better screen than any Galaxy S, so not only are you stupid, but also dead wrong. Thanks for playing! P.S. "I'm jumping ship if it doesn't come out next month" A. good luck with any other carrier, and B. good luck with that affecting Verizon's release date.

was curious why do say verizon has so many problems, I am new to this industry (just got a job after being unemployed for a year), another poster VZWProductTestr seems knowledgeable. I am not sure who to listen to. Can you or anyone advise me?

Verizon testing??? Like the testing done on the Droid X? That's a joke for Verizon to say they test and then put out a phone that is supposed to be Exchange compatible, etc, when it's clearly NOT.

The Storm 3 will NOT have Surepress. It will have a 5 Megapixel camera, faster processor, and 512MB are RAM. It looks just the like the Storm 2 but with updates. Yes, it will have 6.0 OS and so will the Curve 3. Also, they will not be called "Storm 3 and Curve 3".

ODIN Refresh from RIM is the 9570 on Verizon. Same SurePress technology but with the Processor and RAM to run OS6. "Storm3" will be a new device with the same touchscreen technology as the 9800 Torch, but with no physical keyboard and updated processor and RAM to latest standards at time of release. OS6 from RIM will not function on the 9550 with its current hardware.

To whomever leaked this info: I hope you got some sort of contingent employment lined up, becuase you will most certainly be found out...and terminated. I don't think violating company privacy rules entitles you to your 99 weeks of unemployment, either. Jackass.

so you just confirmed these dates.

That was too funny..... I would agree with you. I wouldn't be too upset as this could have been released by the company to create buzz. I'm actually excited for this as an employee. I would rather people know what is coming so I can stop selling phones and have someone exchange it on me within 30 days because a better device for that customer just came out. BRAVO to who did this. :-)

SirOssis - you do realize you are quoting the Huffington post, who if I do recall are not really a truly ethical information source, and also if I do recall are compeltely against any kind of corporate gain.... Find us a better source...

The rumored 10 MP HTC phone has been seen before, the Sabor for Sprint and the Discover Concept phone shown last August. I hope this is one of those two phones because they sound amazing, I might have to hold off to see if this rumor is true. But the Merge is almost for sure coming now that we have seen screen shots of it in the inventory system and now this.

And still no LG Clout VX8370!

It's already been released via the Indirect channel.

But where is my trusty phonearena.com review! LOL!

If Moto doesn't deliver with its next big phone i might be jumping ship to HTC's Merge. Things Moto better do, Stock Android or Motoblur that can be turned off, unlocked bootloader, no keyboard or a keyboard so amazing that id have to use it because of its awesomeness.

Dur hurr: Motorola Droid X. Problem solved, except perhaps the bootloader. Why can't you leave a phone alone without fucking with it?
