question for Rich
I was wondering if you had heard any tentative release times on any of these models, or anything that's a little tighter in than what quarter they'll be in. I've heard that cingular's phasing out the v600 for the v551, this doesn't make sense to me. As far as I've heard the 551 is still pending FCC approval. It would make more sense (to me) to put the A630 in it's place and have that hold them over until the EDGE equipped 551 is approved, tested and released.
I'd also love to hear which, if any, of these phones have begun testing for potential carriers.
Any information you have is GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks a lot!

It makes perfect sense to me - the V551 adds EDGE and video. The only thing you lose is the changeable metal covers. Selling both the V551 and V600 at the same time wouldn't make much sense, since the V600 has always been positioned as a top-of-the-line model, but the V551 is more advanced. I think discontinuing the V600 is exactly what I would do if I were about to roll out the V551. I'm just speculating, though.
I haven't noticed FCC approval for the V551, either. But Motorola did say Q3 for a release timeframe, and we'r...
Not to mention the A630 would pretty much be a replacement for the v600 rather than an improvement on it. Where the v551 is more positioned as a top-tier phone. That's cool with me, I'm more waitin on the 630 as I don't really need EDGE. If the 551 is in place at that time should only drive the price of the 630 down (now I'm just speculating). Just hopin the 3rd quarter release is on time for both. Can't wait to get or sell these.
