If it would have said (wonderbread) in his post and that he'd proven you wrong, I'm sure you would have just sat there and let it slide. haha Who knows, maybe you would have. I, for one, wouldn't and wont. It's one thing to just randomly spew out theories and statements, it's ANOTHER thing to mention people's names specifically and say that you've told them so when nothing has come to light that proves that person wrong. You forget, I'm not the one who posted someone's name in a post saying "hate to say I told you so but..." when NOTHING has come out that is proving me wrong. If it would have been your name in that post, I would HOPE that you would defend yourself, just as I did. Goodness...

OK. Sounds fair to me. I'm not mad at anyone, it's just that when I see BIG BOLD RED TYPE I tend to think someone is being aggressive.

So, back on track...Newsradio, what is the new bits of information that are corroborating your information. I still haven't seen the new "bit by bit" that is new news but would love to see a link or something. I'm just here for information and am always looking for new information. So, if there's new information proving what you've been claiming is true, then lay it on us! I love hearing new info. Post a link or something. Thanks in advance.

And just for the record, I want what you're saying about the Bravo/Passion to be true. I posted theories exactly like what you're claiming is true weeks ago in the "confident the Bravo is coming" thread. So, we want the exact same thing. Everything you have said about the Bravo/Passion would be VERY exciting if it turns out to actually happen in the near future. So, don't think that that I'm somehow against this phone. I'm all for it, I just like a little more solid evidence, that's all. So, if you have some new information for us...share.

What do you guys think about this. This article makes a pretty matter of fact statement about the Passion.

Quote:
The makers of the Nexus One, HTC, will also display its own Android based products. A CDMA version of the Google Nexus One called HTC Passion will also be displayed in the show.

I am not familiar with the blog or it's authors so, who knows. They certainly sound confident in their assertions.

I saw that too and thought their post seems legit. I thought HTC would wait until after the Jan. 13th return deadline for Verizon holiday purchases to announce the Passion. I bought the Eris on a 1-year contract, thinking by next year, we'd have thorough reviews of this and others to choose from. I'm very happy with my Eris but a faster processor and better/bigger screen would sure be nice. However, posts here and elsewhere indicate the Passion won't have the Sense UI and I would really miss that.

If what is being released on Verizon really is just just the HTC Bravo in the US it won't have sense (as the Bravo in the 2010 catalog is not only pictured without Sense buts its not listed as installed software).
The good news is that Google has somewhat taken the hint and integrated some features of Sense into Android 2.1 (more screens, weather widget).

It provides more hope to us Verizon folks. We shall see soon enough. I like that more info lately keeps saying similar stuff about a CDMA variant being introduced at the CES. Maybe not all super legit yet, but trends forming are good signs.

I thought the speculated reason for the delay from the December release was so HTC could integrate Sense into Android 2.1?

so coming from winmo, i have followed a site called everythingwm. this guy over there named brent i think works for verizon. he sees new phones being tested and sees new roms on a server.
I asked him about any new android phones coming-well hit the link if you want to read that, nothing special. but he had heard of an incredible rom. i said if there is an incredible rom, then there should be an incredible phone, right? HE SAID YUP!

I remember this guy. He was talking about the TP2 and Omnia II a couple months back when I was following the winmo scene. I remember that he said he sees this stuff come across his system. Still have a user id over there so I posted a follow up question about how far ahead he sees the phones.

I never believed that was the reason for the delay because there was a leaked 2.1 ROM with Sense running on it.
All I'm saying is that the leaked 2010 catalog has the Bravo without Sense (check the pics and specs compared to other sense phones in the catalog). This may be why there is the Incredible codename (damn HTC and their naming conventions) being thrown around, a different version of the same physical phone. The Passion became the N1 (as thats the name the Bravo was supposed to launch over here with) and the Incredible will be slightly different as the Desire (aka Droid Eris) was slightly different from the Hero line.

If bravo=passion=CDMA, why is even being released in UK at all?
Newsradio seems upset that we're getting a CDMA phone months before they are. do they even use CDMA?

What part of the story am I missing here?

Hey Newsradio2261, can you confirm the new HTC Sense is the same as the recent HTC Exprersso ROM leaked photos, or will it be something different. I personally don't care for the bubble icons. Thanks

I would say it's the former since "training on it" really assumes training the sales staff, which are pretty low level.
I forgot to ask, how far in advance of the 11/6 release date did you get the training module for the Eris?

You trying to play daddy and referee the fight is equally boring, I'd have to say. If you find it boring, just stay out of it and ignore it. Simple as that. There was no reason for you to get in the middle of it in the first place. Mind your business.

I know, right? That new bubble look is just ugly. I'd take the old version over the new version any day. Why mess with a good thing. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Couldn't agree more!

One downside to the Passion not having the same hardware as the N1 (if it does or doesn't, who knows), there won't be as many accessories, case choices, etc. Everybody is going to want a piece of the N1 when it arrives. Probably not so much with the Passion, especially if it's one of a kind.

I became a member only two weeks ago. So I don't know how far in advance they posted it. I finished my Eris training module as soon as I joined.
I remember an engadget story about Verizon having a training module on it on Oct 27th (Droid Eris turns up in Verizon training course -- Engadget) but I'm not sure when the HTC site got the module, sorry.

You mean not being a child? When your posting in public your making it everyone's business. Use IM when it's personal. This isn't the right venue for a soap opera.

I bought a droid this weekend. Paid $250 and it was only a week old. Sweetest deal ever.

Anyway. I went to the Verizon store to meet the girl to have the droid added to my account. The verizon rep asked how much I paid. When I told him he was shocked. I told him that I got the droid while I'm waiting for the passion. He asked he how I knew about the passion. I told him I read the rumors on the net. He said the phone is coming. Reps have training next week and he expects to be given info about the passion. He said that release day should be late January but might change to end of Q1 as that is the time Verizon usually releases new phones.

Any verizon reps going to training next week?

The guy helping me is NOT a sales rep. He is a tech in the repair dept.

that's a huge gap difference. but this IS the 3rd time i've heard a VZW rep talking about an upcoming training for the Passion. DEFINITELY encouraging.

He said it is unusual that Verizon would release phones at the begining of a quarter but he expects it to happen.

Thanks a bunch for the info but sounds to me like the tech guy has the passion confused with the N1. The N1 is rumored to be for sale late Q1 but maybe end of Jan. I've emailed htc from my Verizon training account asking when the module will be available but I don't expect any kind of useful reply.

The N1 will supposedly be available online tomorrow at 9am, not at the end of the month. He may be wrong, but I don't think he has the Passion and the N1 mixed up.

Other than the Devour/Calgary, I'm looking to buy at almost any android device that comes out in the next 30 days on Verizon. Don't care which flavor of the existing rumors it is.

I thought it was just being announced tomorrow but the google website now seems pretty poised to active phones although I don't see an order form yet: www.google.com/phone now live

I have to assume it's 9am PST. I was just looking at the press invitation again and the schedule is for the official announcement and presentation portion of the event to be from 10am to 11am in Mountain View. That has to be PST, so 1pm EST. I'm just anxious to hear if they're gonna say anything more than, "uh, we've got a phone for you that works with t-mobile". Otherwise, bring on Thursday and CES.

Well it looks like it will be coming to big red. Spring 2010 so not too far off but not soon enough either. I'm going to pick up a droid and just sell it on ebay when this or the bravo comes out.

From Cnet's live coverage of the google press event:

"
10:48 a.m.: Verizon and Vodafone have also agreed to join the program (Vodafone owns part of Verizon Wireless).
10:50 a.m.: Queiroz takes us through screenshots of the store. Potential customers can get demos of various Nexus One applications within the store, and take a 3D tour. The phone will be available for $529 without service, and $179 with a two-year contract from T-Mobile. The prices aren't yet available for Verizon Wireless or Vodafone yet. All of this can be done from your PC; you won't have to go into T-Mobile's store.
10:52 a.m.: Verizon and Vodafone are on track to participate by spring 2010, Queiroz said. He selects the phone without a service plan, and goes through the checkout process. You'll need a Google Account and a Google Checkout account to buy the Nexus One. At the moment, the Google.com/phone site won't let you buy a phone with service contracts from T-Mobile, but it's not clear if that is a temporary glitch.

I'm hoping BY spring (as most everyone else probably is too). That makes sense as many people predicted a release towards the end of Q1.

At least you have something smart. I'm stuck with my LG Dare until this thing comes out. I'm tempted to get a Droid or something to tide me over, but I'll probably just stick it out and save the money

Anyone here have the N900? That is probably the only phone on the market at the moment that I want that I can actually use in the US since the HD2 is only offered with WinMo.

I spoke to a Nokia rep. online who told me that the 3G aspect of that phone will only work on T-Mobile. I was checking out T-Mobile's plan's as well as local coverage and it turns out I have good to excellent voice and data coverage in my area and with the $79.99 Even More Plus Unlimited Talk + Text + Web, its very hard to beat considering if I wanted a similar plan on Verizon it would cost me no less then $180 a month under contract no less which I would not have to get with T-Mobile.

What do you guys think?
