No HTC Touch Pro yet? *sigh* I like everything about vzw... but only thing i hate about them is they're getting phones late... except for some blackberry phones... i guess i would have to wait until next year... *sigh*

I think the HTC Touch and the Blackberry (I'm assuming you mean bold) .. are all under exclusive licenses. Until Sprint loses its exclusivity and ATT loses its exclusivity on the Blackberry Bold, VZW can bring those phones into their line up. PS, I don't know how reliable this is, but my friend works at VZW, and word is corporate is trying to negotiate a deal in which VZW will sell the iPhone in November 2009... I don't know how reliable this is, but he has provided me with some good info over the years so lets all hope this is true. ATT will be completely crushed if VZW gets the iPhone. I mean, who wouldn't want a cool phone AND the best network?

Apple isn't making a CDMA iPhone. Simply, it costs more for R&D, getting hardware for it, and licensing fees. Releasing a CDMA iPhone in November 2009 makes no sense. In 2010 we'll be seeing LTE, Verizon's going to work hard to roll it out first because it requires more work and hardware to go from CDMA > LTE. Plus AT&T has a lot of flexibility with HSPA, they've got 14.4mbit HSDPA, then there's HSPA+..... All into an easy transition to LTE. If an iPhone ever came to Verizon, it wouldn't be until LTE.

I heard otherwise, that one would be released with LTE. There was a loophole in ATT's exclusivity contract, that they could be the only carrier of the iPhone with its GSM technology until 2012. New technology calls for new options for everyone. Seeing as Verizon and Vodaphone are both going to be in the LTE market, and correct me if I'm wrong, essentially make the global cellular technology the same (within their networks) .. it would be a great investment for them to globally carry the LTE iPhone.

what's going to be the better phone; Omnia, Storm, or Touch Pro. The omnia looks like its going to have good specs, but i wonder if its going to already be behind the times since the GSM version was already released a good bit ago. I don't know if I want a Storm with the rumors that a Storm 2 and 3 are already in the pipeline. And to top things off, Verizon gets the less powerful lTouch Pro while Sprint gets it's big brother. Thoughts and opinions?

a couple days ago there was a posting on BoyGenius about how RIM was already developing the next two versions of the storm. It makes it hard to go out and make the purchase on the Storm when you know greener grass is right around the corner. http://www.boygeniusreport.com

its true, just think phones come in with their new models every year so they have to start now on their next generation storms to be ready for th next year. like the v, env, and voyager. they all game out three years in a row and when the first one launched the second was being sketched and prototyped. its why no one will ever be able to stay up with technology.

dude, companys have roadmaps that show where theyd like to be with what devices YEARS in advance. The storm was probably a workin model last year, and has been in different phases of bug killing and retooling since. Its not unlikely at all thaty they have the next version or 2 or 3 already in some sort of preliminary testing. Hell, MS started work on the next xbox the same year the 360 came out. Things dont happen overnight, they take alot of time. did you really think they just go. "hey i got a great idea for an all touch blackberry" and have it to market 6 months later? Geesh.
