The 8th is still the best looking date on the calendar.

In before the haters (who have been proven wrong repeatedly) start going on about how "Windsock" doesn't know what he's talking about. Seriously, it makes you guys look foolish. He contributed massively to the Droid X scene, and provided me (and many others) with the SBF's I needed when I first bricked my device.

Did he create them? No, but his sources made it possible for me to get them when I needed them most. I couldn't care less what his personality quirks are, because he comes through when it counts.

The Droid X forum was a great, positive place to talk about Android. I'm very disappointed in this one.

On topic for a second - that enlarged screen size, does it include the space that turns into the home/back/apps buttons? Or is that just the screen's viewing real estate?
Total screen is looking to be 4.72" and viewable screen left when smart buttons are up is still a whopping 4.43" - and I guess both are viewing real estate, it just depends if the app is displaying the smart buttons (normally) or not (watching movies or whatnot, I think).

By the way, in that link, I show the comparison measurements to a 4.3" 16:9 display - might be of interest as well.

I think this goes for all out of character moments in here...I think we hit a frustration point. We got testy, upset and it wasnt our finest hour.

In all fairness, the Droid X forum was much like this one, pre-launch.

Still, I've been very critical of P3 Droid for his personality, his look-at-me and if your nice I'll give you a crumb attitude, but I've NEVER attacked his development prowress. I've been quite the opposite, praising him for his great work on the DX and other platforms, and with his TBH counterparts.

We all want P3, he does truely do some great work. But his expertise is with technical matters. He honestly has no more credible release info than many other insiders. He gets his release info 3rd party, just like the others.

Fair enough and good for you for sticking up for your friend. Hopefully he didn't take any of the comments made on here too personal. People can be an emotional fickle bunch.

Send him our thanks for making us want to drink in celebration tonight.

You weren't around when he said VZW wasn't going to get the Gnex at all. And went on and on and on about it. And then VZW announced it officially the next day.

That's where most of this comes from.

was thinking it could be an average, but (4.43+4.72)/2 = 4.575. who knows where that mysterious 4.65 number came from.

Your thoughts?
If it was measured in PenTile inches, they woulda advertised it as 6" or more.

Maybe Samsungs/Googles measurements were the chord of the curved screen arc.

I have never heard of the dude before this forum, it just seems a little ironic that one of our members diggs around finds and the Nexus pics on Verizon's website and gives us all some renewed vigor and the all the sudden P3 after being somewhat quiet for a season pops up with these tweets that indicate he's in the know. Personality quirks is what makes you tolerable or intolerable.

Perhaps its not taking into account the contour, were the user measurements taken with the ruler bent to the screen?

Did he create them? No, but his sources made it possible for me to get them when I needed them most. I couldn't care less what his personality quirks are, because he comes through when it counts.

The Droid X forum was a great, positive place to talk about Android. I'm very disappointed in this one.
I would also add that it was thanks to his leaks that the droid charge has as much gingerbread development that it did. Being the last 4g phone to receive gingerbread(just yesterday/today), it didn't get a lot of support, and still to this date has no official CM support.

But like what was said a few posts ago, his ranting about verizon not carrying the nexus really left a sour taste for those here from the beginning.

I'll be hitting beer-thirty myself in no time and I think watching Episode IV is a must.

How's that?

Actually, no. My post had nothing to do with yours. I think you're a great Mod. You have a talent for explaining technical things, of which you have great knowledge, in a way us plebs can understand. It had more to do w/ this place being treated like a kindygarten at times, by some.

By the way, in that link, I show the comparison measurements to a 4.3" 16:9 display - might be of interest as well.





I'm anticipating a dev creating a way to disable the on-screen buttons "on by default" and enable a "swipe up gesture" from the bottom edge of the screen to bring them up. All screen= epic win. I believe its doable considering ICS gives the app devs the ability to easily make their apps scale to different screen sizes. Could be fun.

Your thoughts?
Yeah, that's what led me to start that thread. I've seen too many favorable, in-depth blog posts talking about the screen size being 4.7" - and like you, it seemed to me that there must be a story there.

I was expecting to find that it was 4.65" and maybe the bloggers had an imprecise ruler.

I was expecting a pretty warped aspect ratio or maybe not as much real real-estate (if you get my meaning) compared to a 4.3" phone with hard buttons and maybe there was just something that marketing was covering up the way marketing always seems to do, if that makes sense.

So, I don't get it - talking Google here -

  • Did some focus group object to 4.7" so 4.65 is better, like 4.99 isn't 5 bucks to (some) people?
  • And what's up with the screen being spec'd in inches in the UK? We've had a playful us vs. the metric system thread with our cousins in the Lounge - I'm think it's pretty clear it's metric or nothing for those cats.
  • Did they have some spec translation error along the way?
  • Did they have some production thing where they were happy with 4.7" displays but already committed the promotions?

Based on the phone width alone, I did some math and expected to uncover some lies somewhere, probably with aspect ratio - because I saw a movie being shown with the soft buttons in one vid. But with soft buttons, the aspect ratio is 1.64 - think 16.4:10 - pretty close to 16:9, closer than I'd expected when using 4.65" as a reference.

It's a mystery to me.

When I was in MN we went to my grandparents bank to get my grandma's will in Lucan,MN. They have a microbrewery out back Brau Brothers, with some fantastic beers. The Old 56 was an excellent light lager, and the Moojuice was one of the best cream stouts I had ever had. Mmmm I wish I could go back.
