What phone with similar specs AND LTE costs $200....oh wait that phone does not even exist. The page is fake anyway. People are paying $300 on contract for s**tty Samsung Charges with half the ram, single core, blah blah.

Especially when the qhd screen is pentile and the wvga screen is rgb stripe, the subpixels are almost the same size anyway...now as for the sg2 having 16*10 ratio...I still like my tall and skinny og droid, running at 1.1ghz no less. Not one phone has come out that's felt like anything more than a small evolutionary step over my phone...ill upgrade when 4.5" 720p screens like the one toshiba just showed off make it into a quadcore running ice cream or later...if sony can put together a ps2 compatible sequel to the xperia play with those specs I might $#!+ myself

Anyone notice that the height listed is .52", doesnt that seem a bit thick? Thats just about the same thickness as the original droid (which im still using). Can anyone clarify why so thick? compared to the SGII it looks like it will be twice the size. In my opinion if motorola shocked everyone and put a physical qwerty in it, i would be in love, just sayin.

Not worried about the price tag at all. It'll be $200 on Amazon within 2 weeks and probably down in the $175 range within a month. I can wait.

Based on some of the "leaked" pics do you all think that this phone will have physical qwerty keyboard?

all signs have pointed to no, but, nobody really knows what the new design will be, even though i would like it, i seriously doubt it will

The one thing I noticed right away about this forgery is that it is a picture of a Droid 3. Look at the bottom bezel. if you are going to photoshop something, at least use the right phone!

it's not the Droid 3. the FFC is on the right side of the ear piece and not the far left like on the Droid 3.

I'm going to pass on the Bionic, EVO 3D, and LG Thrill. These phones may all be Dual Core phones, but so far the only phone that really shows and really feelsl like a dual core phone is the SGS2. I am not saying these phones are/will be bad because they aren't, they just don't stand up against the SGS2.

I really really like to know why Verizon charge their 4G phones 300$ while Sprint T-Mobile and AT&T charges theirs 199$? Don't think it's worth my money to spend on a awesome phone even though it have dual core processor NVIDIA chip in it with 1GB RAM

both Sprint and T-Mobile charged $250 for their 4G phones when they first got their networks going.
