New Verizon ICS phone with smaller form factor?

Will verizon eventually (soon?) be offering an ICS phone with a form factor closer to the size of the iphone? Coming from a bbery curve, The razr, galaxy Nexus (and evidently the S3) just seem too large...thanks

Am i the only one who thinks the newer phones are just too big? where do you guys put these things? my bbery fits easily in my front pants pocket. No shot with a galaxy nexus or s3 correct?

even in a pair of gym shorts or sweats, don't these phones feel like you're lugging around a paperback book?

is the rear pocket an option? won't the phone crack (let alone look ridiculous)....

Take a look at the Incredible 4G. I got to play with one and i was very impresses. Sounds like the phone will only be $149 possibly with $50 rebate as well

I carry a Samsung Charge with a Defender Otterbox (no belt clip) and a Moto Razr with Commuter Otterbox. Both fit in my front pockets, no problem

How long have you had your Charge?
I've had it for a year, but had a problem with the screen and made an insurance claim about 6mo's ago.

Are you happy with yours?
I don't have any major complaints against mine.

I intend on waiting for the Galaxy SIII. Hopefully Can won't ruin it!!! I am still undecided on white or blue, 32GB, it 64GB versions. Will have to see it in person to decide on white or blue.

I'm pretty ambivilant about it. Its a phone with a horrible processor and low ram. I've rooted it and put a ASOP 2.3.6 rom loosely based off the SGIII.

I don't care about the SGIII. I honestly don't see whats going to be so ground breaking or revolutionary. Its going to be more of what SmartPhones are. Big pretty screen, to much processing speed for the phone and some memory. yay...

Too much processor? Just like a computer it's hard to think of a phone as having too much processor. Can you say more about that?

Sure. Lots of phones are rumored to be going to quad-core processors and there isn't much need for it. The phones don't have many programs that actually need that much computing power. Not to mention, ICS is optimized for dual core processors.


IDK, perhaps i'm just getting a little jaded by trying to keep up with the next biggest, best thing or maybe i'm turning into a consumer that just frankly doesn't care about the differences between a 1.2 GHz and a 1.5 GHz processor, the slight differences in PPI from all the HD screens coming out, etc.
