WOW...Motorola has a smart phone!

Ok, this Motorola phone will probably be a phone that i will buy! Motorola hasnt come out with a decent phone in a long time ever since they tried to make a revolution on the RAZOR. Hah, but this phone should be great! Im excited for the Android operating system and everything else that this phone is "supposed to be".

Impressive...

...although I'm not partial to sliders. Still, though...I hope Android helps Motorola to shape up. They're bleeding money. And I'd hate to see their mobile division go belly up.
It's nice to see Motorola coming out with an innovative device, I wonder if this device uses the same ARM 528mhz processor as the G1 and Mytouch, and what type of internal memory this thing has. But the form factor is very nice
...
Spec wise I think this is the best Android handset as of yet. Good camera (hmm no mention of a flash), real headphone jack, nice dispay. I wonder how the battery is.

It's good to see Motorola making baby steps in the right directions.

What about on-board memory and HSUPA?

It says it supports 7.2 HSDPA, but what about HSUPA?

And any details about the on-board memory (nonmicrosd) ?
ATT's 3G network is HSUPA capable but very far from impressive speeds on the uplink side, so I wouldn't expect much from Tmo when it comes to HSUPA.

rumored to be free

Androidguys has an article up t-mobile leaked showing the phone for free. Who knows if this was just to stir up talk about the phone or if it is actually true.

To bad its T-mobile

Considering their 3G footprint is about the same size as Sprints 4G. No worries though, they'll still have crappy coverage and will eventually roll out 3G in most major markets - however leaving those major markets will be 2G again... they're only 3 years behind in Data...
your idiot and don't know what your talking about.
