Maybe Verizon will get the same phone in a year or two? "Verizon -- yesterday's technology today."

It would be nice for Verizon to get an updated PDA. I've had this brick 6700 since Bush got re-elected.

Will the Sprint Touch have the new Touchflo technology. By this I mean the ablity to scoll through pictures and zoom in and out with finger gestures

4. Harold unregistered

yes it will have all that software including a BIGGER onscreen keyboard and the TouchFlo picture Manager.

Will the Sprint Touch have the ability to lock itself when idle? For example the iphone requires you to drag a arrow to unlock it so to prevent accidental movement.

Verizon IS coming out with an iPhone style device. Check out the LG VOYAGER. It's pretty cool too.

Iphone is NOT the same as Touch. Touch is a smart/PDA phone. With a Windows Mobile OS and apps like mobile outlook, word, excel, etc, this is not a toy like something from apple... The LG Voyager is just a toy, no useful apps, just a pretty face, like the Iphone. It would be really nice if Verizon would figure out the difference and offer something with some use, other than its ancient line that it has right now.
