It looks more like the Motorola Droid Pro/Admiral in that photo. But it is a near perfect copy of the Blackberry keyboard.

You obviously don't pay attention

Sprint is sitting on 4 times more spectrum as Verizon, and twice as much as Verizon and ATT combined. TMO has 3 time more than Verizon... Really, stop listening to the crap they feed you in those stores.

It's called "virtual inventory".

And it allows the carriers to reduce overhead costs, by ordering only what is paid for already, rather than have stuff sit around. Yeah, I know. I hate it too, and I work for VZW.

Re: Wow Nexus One also includes WiFi N!!! And an FM transmitter/reciever.

It will impress me when someone makes an app that allows me to use it as a wireless router, similar to WinMo. Thus no need for a tethering package. But then, N speeds still won't mean anything to me. Color me not impressed with N on a phone.

Anything by Vertu would be your best bet. They're a small volume, niche market manufacturer (arm of Nokia to be honest), and exclusively expensive. Starting over $5,000, and topping out over $300,000.

Droid hands on!

Keyboard leaves a little to be desired, but the screen is very comfortable to use. Heavy, but solid. Doesn't feel fragile at all. Back to the screen, it is responsive, but not like the 5.0 OS Storms or the HTCs. Not os related. Seems to want to scroll when I want to drag. Feels like an iPhone, with better reception, and a keyboard (even if it feels small and nonresponsive). I like it, though I'd wait for the HTC Android ...

Re: STORM 2--not in VZW stores
Oct 28, 2009, 3:48 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

We have several in my store, not sure if you're going to a corp store or not. In store is a MIR, pricing is the same. Support your local store, so that VZW will hopefully give us a better commission payout, before the good people leave for better paying jobs, and you're left with people that are more worried about the latest txt, than your needs!

Irony much?

The site is blocked internally here at VZW. Lol

I can't get the login bars to show up in the BB browser. IE is a corporate issue. I downloaded Bolt, and it works normally. I'm not sure if an other BB users are having this problem.

Hey, I'm having issues logging in using Internet Explorer, and BlackBerry web browser. Is there an maintenance going on? I had to use opera...yuck.

People still use the Sidekick?
Oct 11, 2009, 9:21 AM
in the Article: T-Mobile and Microsoft: Sidekick User Data is Gone forum

I would have thought that most users would have moved to real smart devices by now. Not a slight, but the Sidekick is very limited next to a smart device.

Only 128 MB of RAM and 256MB of storage... :( A phone this awesome should have at least the same hardware as the TP2. /;|

Touch Pro 2 remains direct fullfillent only through OCT. Imagio launches through direct fulfillment on the 6th, other channels on the 20th. $299.99 - $100 Mail in rebate on each, so no price changes. Barrage is $129.99 after $50 MIR. 23rd Through fulfillment for camera version, 21st for noncamera.

Extremely. It's actually a little stiffer than I would have liked, but it does feel like it can take a spill or two without breaking.

in the Verizon Wireless forum

I mentioned anything about the Omnia 2 before now. But, since you asked: The Omnia should have better reception, battery life may be weaker, as specs have it arriving with a smaller battery. Based on the Rogue, which has the same screen, I would expect response to be wonderful and quick. Care to continue down the path of "douche"?

He is correct.

I like the look of the 750 to be honest. Had they water proofed it, it would have been a monster.

Not out of the box. It requires other software. I'm not a Mac user, so it's never been of concern to me. Try: www.ppcgeeks.com

That the Touch Pro 2 is out, and most of us have handled the phone by now, after D-Filling them. :wink:

Re: OMNIA 2 or Touch Pro 2?
Sep 23, 2009, 5:44 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Haven't held the Omnia 2, and I don't have an official feature list, however, two obvious things things: harware keyboard and Wifi, and I think global functionality, all in favor of the Touch Pro 2. Having used a VZW Touch Pro 2 now, and compared it side by side with my Touch Pro (Alltel), I can say that the TP2 is an excellent device. HTC found a way to make the phone a little more special, while using ...

in the Article: AT&T Says Software Update to Enable MMS Arriving Friday forum

My BlackBerry, Touch Pro, E815, etc. has been able to do MMS since day one, and all of them can do things the iPhone can't, like work reliably, and have their batteries changed by ME, etc. Seriously, the iPhone isn't all that. Outside the multi touch screen, I can't think of much the Touch Pro/2 Diamond/2 can't do.

There you go, using logic again. :lol:

So, your argument is more a shot a VZW, than a factual point.

Nice to see you made that clear. Oh, and the kitchen sink is thrown at them too. Usually so they won't come back. :wink:

BlackBerry World Phone, or Tour.
Sep 18, 2009, 10:19 AM
in the General forum

Easy enough. Both can be had without cameras. The Tour has the advantage of EVDO Rev A for a much better web experience, and a nicer screen.

Yes, he can.
Sep 18, 2009, 10:15 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

For a while, people have knocked on the VZW smartphone selection as being either a BlackBerry or an Omnia. Now, with the additions of the Ozone, Touch Pro 2, the TWO new Android devices, it's a whole new ballgame. Let's check off what people want: Nationwide 3G network - Check Good selection of smartphones - Check Largest wireless network nationwide - Check The worlds largest mobile community - Check Aggressive pricing on smartphones - Check I am certainly not someone thrilled about the company I ...

Re: Honoring Agreements?
Sep 14, 2009, 1:51 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

No, you broke your contract, or your word. The ETF is the penalty for that. What you're proposing is false churn, or fraud. It causes issues with revenues, reporting to shareholders, and stock prices, as well as our ability to earn a bonus. Since you're willing to do those things, I suggest you move your entire account to a company that I'd love to see the stock drop for, AT&T. I'd personally rather deal with customers ...

You can skin it, but I'm not positive that you can install Android. It's feasible, the hardware will support it, I think, but I don't think it's going to happen. TF3D was excellent on the Diamond, what kind of problems are you having?

Re: Anybody have any idea when fast charging is going to come to cellphones?
Sep 13, 2009, 10:59 AM
in the Development forum

Problem is with current battery tech, and charging tech. The faster you charge the batteries, the more you risk a fire or explosion. Contact charging looks like the next big thing, rather than rapid charging.
