I have been following for a while but wanted to register and share this info.
I am an IT manager for a large University in the SE. I emailed our Verizon rep about the Passion and asked " Have you heard of a new HTC Passion or Indredible heading to Verizon soon?". His reply was:
Yes, the passion is scheduled for Q1 at the moment, but is subject to change
I then asked about the N1 to make sure he didnt think they were the same. "Do you know when the N1 will be heading to Verizon?" to which he replied:
I have heard end of Q1 beginning of Q2 for a launch date.
I have since emailed him telling him I am torn between a Droid and waiting for the Passion and asked if he could send specs. We shall see.
Anyhoo, thanks for all the entertaining and informative posts. Take it for what its worth but that is what I have received.
