But let's say, for arguments sake, that they do all this and blow Android out of the water. You're looking at $399 with a two year contract for a 32GB iphone, period. If Jobs indeed throws his all into the next gen iphone, he'll be throwing his all into pricing as well. Par for the course. Game over. Android lives! This is why Apple hasn't kicked the PC to the curb which they have allegedly blown out of the water for years, nor any other portable music player. With Apple, it has always been a price/performance trade-off and it always will be. It is what keeps them from dominating market share in any particular segment (except maybe with the ipod where they actually have a reasonable entry level price point despite the extreme lack of features).
Great point. Slug, don't worry -- we'ere actually ending it here. The only iPhone advantage is the fact that it can play iTunes DRM movies and tv shows.

Clearly you haven't been following this sub-forum very long. The guy ran out of "chances" a long time ago, and I think I was more patient than Nash. Anyone who back tracks and deletes their posts, or threatens to leave for good a dozen or so times but still comes back... Somethings not right here. Besides, as much as I appreciated his info when he first claimed to have it, news from across the pond doesn't help a whole lot here. Just wait for BGR, Engadget, or some other mobile blog to publish something when their local connect has something to say. 'Til then...

Okay everyone, let's stop with the redundant comments please If he doesn't have the news, then yapping about it won't help at all -- it will only fill this thread. I guess all we can do is wait.

Was just daydreaming about phones and thought what if the Bravo and Incredible both came to Verizon. The bravo being a junior incredible at 3.7" and the incredible taking the gold as the flagship verizon superphone.


....and nobody say "and then you wake up"..lol...it could happen

in one of the [I]Incredible[I] blogs, didn't it say something about it being red? Oh man, can you imagine, it gets released, for VZ, has all the specs we're hoping for, and the thing is flaming red! That would be a freakin riot! Talking about having to choose between things that should matter and things that don't. "N1, beautiful phone, great specs, ugly stock android.... or INCREDIBLE, beautiful Sense UI, great specs, and phone looks like its wearing underoos!"

Honestly, the more I look at these the more I'm kind of leaning towards the N1. The bravo information is so mediocre at this point that it's hard to really put all my desire towards it as we don't even know that it will land on VZW (yes, I understand that all signs point to it coming). I don't know, I feel that the N1 actually suits my needs especially now with multitouch capability. I do like the look of Sense but I'm not so sure it's worth the wait following the N1 coming out...

you're right, it is going to be a tough call. But I just really like the sense ui, man they did a nice job with that. I know its eye candy, but it is easy-to-understand-and-use eye candy. I've been waiting so long, at this point I think I can wait as long as I have to.

I completely understand the eye candy thing...hell Apple has gotten away with that for years now...

The only thing that concerns me about the N1 is the stock keyboard, I have heard from multiple people that the sense keyboard is leaps and bounds ahead of it.

There can never be fault for someone wanting something aesthetically pleasing! I really just want to get an Android phone in hand as I'm using a BB right now...I'm ready for the change...I wish VZW would just comply and put out something that isn't the Droid or Eris.

I was under the impression that you had to root it, but I'm not positive on that. Anyone that knows for sure please correct me or verify.

News do have any idea what the phone is that passed through the FCC yesterday. The htc model number is PB81120. The model number for the HD2 is PB81100. Looks like the PB81120 might be the android version for T-mobile here in the states or the HD2. Any thoughts on this. Thanks!

I agree with what was previously stated. If you get info just post it, prove the doubters wrong. I know if I were in your position I would most definitely want to be the one to post it just to make us all stfu...

This doesn't mean I believe you, this means I'm providing you an opening to make me stop doubting and eat my words...up to you...

Newsy, nothing got closed, it was just moved. Don't be baited, if you have something, post it however you choose. Engaging in arguments on the interwebz is just teh dumb. If there are those of us willing to listen to newsy, so what? What am I going to do otherwise? continue to wait? That's what we're already doing.

Off thread topic (but like that really matters anymore)

I'd really like to commend Ruben for fighting the good fight and trying to keep this thread on topic. I've been following these forums for many months now and its been refreshing to see someone not focused on personal insults (there are many more great posters as well but Ruben deserves his due). Why people enjoy bashing the one person who "may" have helpful info is beyond me. If newsradio turns out to be right, that's awesome and I'll say thanks in advance. If he's wrong, who cares? We'll have no less credible evidence than we did yesterday. Lack of credible leaked info is turning this forum into a lord-of-the-flies-like devolution. So in closing, best of luck to newsradio or anyone else out there that is able to track something down.

I believe what is attempting to be conveyed by those that doubt and/or bash newsradio isn't so much a desperation for credible evidence, but more so a call to credibility. If you read through the forums he had lost credibility with many people as he has not come through with any info as he has stated, he's continuously deleted his posts (clearing accountability), and has generally just been wrong.

I do hope that he comes out and can shut up those that are skeptical, but I think many people are sick of getting their hopes up and being let down. You cry wolf enough times and soon enough people don't come running anymore.

Cheers.

I think what's the most frustrating to me is the same people complaining over and over again after he fails to come through with info that doesn't meet their expectations. If he consistently lets you down, what is the purpose of continually being shocked and bashing him when he does it again.

We should just all calmly sit back and wait for bits and pieces of info and combine them here...which we've been doing so far. So can we all just cool and calmly stfu....help ME help YOU STFU (...aaaand it rhymes )


That being said, I've set the clock to 5hrs from now, and if we get nothing, oh well. Rueben, please be diligant in checking your email (refresh like the wind my friend!!!)

I wouldn't consider what I'm saying to be bashing or flaming. I am doing nothing more than stating the skeptics side. I'm not making this personal, I'm not going to either, but just stating facts. You can think I'm bashing, hell people can bash me, but I'm not going to care because I'm going to state my opinion.

My apologies eipee, I didn't realize I quoted your post (I've corrected my original post). It was not targeted at you nor meant to say that you bashed anyone. I was simply stating my opinion of how this thread has progressed overall.

Fair enough, no hard feelings, it's nothing personal. I do agree in an overall sense with you.

What's the most frustrating to me is jumping on here and reading 12-15 posts all revolving around the same individual who fails to deliver. I don't care, but it generates a lot of useless posts to sift through, just as many as the bashing back and forth that the rest of you complain about. For the record, I have nothing against newsradio. I'm not slinging insults at him. But until I see some real evidence that he indeed is privi to unreleased info, I don't believe he has anything to offer us or that he's anything more than one of us just waiting to get a new phone. So far his completion rate is 0%.

Doesn't the Hero and Eris already support flash? I would expect future HTC Android offerings to follow, whether it be HTC or native Android support (eventually coming).

I do hope that he comes out and can shut up those that are skeptical, but I think many people are sick of getting their hopes up and being let down. You cry wolf enough times and soon enough people don't come running anymore.

Cheers.
That is EXACTLY what has happened. Everyone saying that we're being mean or doubting/bashing him, well...you guys weren't around a LONG time ago when this all started. This game has been going on for MONTHS! This is not new behavior, this is how shady and unreliable he's acted the entire time.

Please dont get your hopes up. If you have been reading, you would think nothing of it. Feb 16th is when we should here some real news. Until then keep your sights on the N1, since it will more than likely be the next Android 2.1 smartphone for verizon. It will be out early spring hopefully and i have no problem waiting a couple months.

Getting somewhere? Are you guys kidding? He has been saying that wireless sync would 100 billion% come on this phone FOR MONTHS!!! Seriously, look back and read through the old locked thread that we've all been participating in for months now. He said that media sync would be available months ago, this is NOT NEW NEWS.

They guy could be sitting on the other side rolling on the ground in laughter because he has so many people waiting for his "news"

I have been laughing for quite some time. Its not that serious and we know the N1 is coming so who cares...

Now if we could just find a moderator who would say the same thing, and enforce it. This has seriously gone on for months, just like this, and it needs to end.

Edit: VERY good point BradGfromBoo, we're ALL waiting till Feb. 16th, and that includes Newsradio as well. We don't have much longer. I'm pretty excited about MWC.

So, where are those touch sensitive buttons that you were 100 billion percent sure would be on the Bravo? What's that? They're not there? Well guess what then? Your signature under you posts is making you look pretty silly right now. You might want to change it or just get rid of a signature all together, because you WERE NOT RIGHT ALL ALONG. I'd love to see the look on YOUR face right now when it dawns on you that everyone in here is finally starting to see what a few of us have seen all along; that you're full of it. So, how about you (to put it in your words) "stfu."

It comes standard with a 16GB card. This is old news. And yes, we know about the Legend too, and we've all been hearing about the Hero 2 as well. Dude, where is your insider information? That's what all of your loyal followers are waiting for. Give them what they want. You were supposed to have it yesterday, and now today is going to go by and all you are trying to tell us is stuff that is already public knowledge.

"Has anyone heard about the HTC Supersonic? No? Want me to give you the BREAKING NEWS about it?" That has ALWAYS been the extent of the value that your information has.
