NKT thank you very much for everything you've added to this forum. It's good to see that all of us that had some doubts that this phone would come out and not live up to its name are all on board now. You've done well sir, keep up the good work.

Who cares.... 768 should be plenty and probably help with power consumption. You know we will be able to root and overclock this bad boy anyway.

Alright, now we're getting somewhere. Thanks for the post, NKT and my sincere apologies if my previous comments offended you. We now know you're not a poser and I didn't mean to imply you were earlier. I've just become really skeptical of anyone claiming to know this and that about the device, but proof is in the pudding and you more than adequately qualified yourself. You do realize this will likely blow-up on the intrawebs, but I'm glad you posted it here first!

You can see they went for thin as possible... The reason the back is the way it is, is because of the battery. That bitty looks thin

Edit: and probably instead of keeping the back flat, kept it etched so keep weight down. Less material = lighter

Awesome pictures, Many people will rest easier now that we have a non-flaming back. You the man NKT.

My guess would be this isn't a final final production model because of the red accents....similar to how the desire had some red accents but they were removed in models shown at MWC.

I would guess it's a compromise to preserve battery life. You can always overclock if you want to save a few microseconds of launch, boot and run time, but I'm guessing that with the testing that's been done 768 is more than sufficient.

Look on youtube videos for the Blinder in action.

So someone educate me, how does this underclocking thing work... If the processor is rated for 1 Ghz does that mean that the remaining "potential" could be recaptured via rooting/custom ROM? In a sense i'm asking if you got the processor back to 1 Ghz would that even be considered "overclocking" or just getting it back to "stock"?

On the link I posted it said "maxium operating efficency" or something like that was 1ghz

so I figure they underclock it for power consumption and to get more life out of it. I mean you car might have a max speed of 120mph, but you don't drive it at that speed all the time (or ever) lol. Know what I mean?

I get all that...i should have perhaps been clearer...let me try again.

Is there a 1 Ghz processor inside and it's been dumbed down to 768? (meaning any "unlock" would restore full speed)

OR

Is there a 768 Mhz processor inside and running at 1 Ghz would require some sort of overclock (voltage, timing, etc...)

Not a bad example, Kappy, but better to look at it as putting a regulator or governor on a car engine that's capable of running at 120 mph, but actually gets better wear and life if it doesn't exceed 100mph.

MY BAD, I think 1 GHZ inside, with it underpowered, so if you unclocked it you could reach 1GHZ.

You are not gonna notice much of a difference between 768 and 1ghz anyway. I would rather have the better battery life.

It's a 1000 Mhz capable chip underclocked to 768 Mhz.

While i agree with you generally i'm on a Droid now and run it at several different clock speeds (600, 800, 1000, 1200, even 1300) and see a definite difference in general use (screen switch, app open, browsing, in particular scrolling, etc...overall snappiness). It's possible that being a different OS version (2.1 vs. 2.0.1), different processor (Snap vs. OMAP), more memory (320 vs. 256), etc... will make a huge difference, but from my experience with my Droid the overclock makes a big difference and is noticeable at each stage.

Not trying to minimize the importance (hell i got my phone right out to check), but just picture what you've already seen with that funky contoured back except in flat black.
