    They are also a lot of Android pros but hey, that's why we got it!
    Ton of hardware pros.

    And the pros are compared to my (non jailbroken) 3G that I gave up.

    All pros - You can get the cons from other sources. IMO, yes there are cons - but what phone doesn't have any?!?!

    Pros:
    Removable Battery
    Additional touch pad on back of phone
    Compass
    90 degree clock and display mode
    Very usable keyboard
    Price - $100 after rebate
    Expandable. I have a 16GB class 6 sd card now - up to 32GB
    Internal speaker kicks butt
    Responsive touch screen - no lag here
    Background apps and notifications
    5MP camera with video and LED flash
    Widgets. No need to launch an app to figure out what's going on
    Unified contact info from multiple social net sites
    Decent app store and growing
    No DRM on music or need for iTunes to manage library
    Micro USB - no propriety charging or syncing cable needed
    Restoring phone from Motoblur
    I can get shell access to the phone
    SDK runs on Linux (or those other two OSes).

    I'm sure i'll think of more right after I hit Submit. Add yours to the thread.

    You hit it dead on with that. With so many people complaining about the backflip it's nice to see someone who is posting the positives of it :) It's the best phone I've had on AT&T so far. And based off of the other androids I've messed with, this one is on par with them.

    Granted the processor could be better, I have had no speed complaints. It has run very smoothly for me. Everyone kept saying before it came out, how slow it was going to be. It might not exactly beat a droid, but compared to my boss's at work, I don't feel a difference.

    Glad to see that someone else is actually liking the Motoblur. Granted it could use more R&D or some extra features, but they could always add those with an update. I don't mind if it 2.1 doesn't come out right away. I am enjoying the phone a whole lot. Just wishing it was more free or unlocked. Hopefully either motorola, google, or AT&T hears out complaints. (doubt it'll be AT&T).

    I agree on the device speed; I have been able to keep with with my friends Droid, PLUS (and a big plus) my data speed is 50-150% faster the his. In fact unless someone has a rooted/unlocked phone, this is bay far the fastest android phone when it comes to data.

    7.2MB Hsdpa? Wow; where can I find a map showing where that exists. I still can't wait to see the new AT&T 4G; now that is going to be fast
