Totally agree. Thought it was a trackball because what else would it be. Now, though, I can see a lack of depth that would make sense if it was a trackpad. I actually like the idea of no moving parts to gum up. I'm excited about this feature, among others. Can't wait for this phone to get announced, let alone released!
I wrote this in another post but no one has realized that the original passion photo does not make sense. It has a Motorola key on an HTC phone. The menu key thats on the droid appears in that photo rather than the normal word menu that shows up on HTC phones. Which makes me think it was altered somewhat so who knows what it has.
Maybe its fake. Or maybe its meant to be part of the Droid lineup and Verizon asked for a different menu button to match the droids 4 buttons (notice how the 2 droids have 4 touchscreen buttons).
It seems on at least 2 of the models (Buzz for sure and Photon maybe) from the leaked 2010 lineup HTC has changed the menu key. so it could just be they're trying out new designs and what was pictured was a prototype.
I respectfully beg to differ. My I've gone through two HTC Touch (VX6900) phones due to dead/dying touchscreens. The only things that made them useable until the replacemnt came were the face buttons. To my experience, limited it may be, touchscreens are unreliable and prone to getting easily busted or inaccurate (like if scratched). Face buttons make the phone still useable.
Unlikely it may be, I'm still hoping for a physical keyboard as a backup.
Hopefully this phone comes to T-Mobile's lineup just like the HTC HD2, that would make me a happy camper.
Ahh so many choices.
On the hero/eris I used it all the time. As a business user the trackball is essential on android because the cut and paste is terrible and just placing the cursor accurately by finger touch on a capacitive screen is a bitch.
I think its safe to say this thing wont be out anytime soon in the US? For sure not Jan like the rumors claimed as fact
I agree. All these rumors are coming off of blog sites and internet forums. The HTC roadmap lists April as the release date for the HTC Bravo. It's April. As much as others may want it earlier, it's not coming out earlier. HTC has been very accurate and reliable with their release dates. If they say April, it means April.
Yea, but its April for the UK release. Still no guarantee it even comes to the US.
It's already been reported. USA carrier T-mobile is getting the Bravo to be released on NATCO day in April.
I don't think this is accurate, please stop posting this without a solid source link.
it hasnt been reported it will go to t-mobile USA in april. the NATCO day was for the european launch for t-mobile UK
She said that? Do you think she was thinking about the Nexus?
Thats what she said. But you could be right. Obviously as all of us doing the research, trying to get some real information have found, the verizon reps seem to not know too much.
I am under the same impression as some of the other guys here that verizon wont want to harm the palm pre plus and pixi plus sales so we are going to be waiting a while.
I have long debated about the Eris myself. My contract was up in Nov and I am dying to get a new phone cause mine is falling apart. Ill probably make some phone calls and store visits tomorrow and see what I come up with.
My contact was up in October. I wouldn't mind the Pre though. Keep in mind that the ERIS has a very laggy keyboard. If that is something you can't stand, or if you are a fast phone typer, then don't get it.
I thought the eris has multi-touch on the keyboard (or chording as google calls it)?
It is laggy?
darn, i was thinking about getting it for the interim.
Do. a. search.
It's called NATCO day. Bet you don't even know when that is. It's called T-mobile. It's called Google.com. Use it.
You are not right, Tmobile in Europe, not USA.
Post. a. link.
You're either extremely lazy or you have no proof. My money is on the latter.
theres no release date/carrier for the Bravo in the US yet. that is a fact.
Oh. It isn't. Well, it is only, as in ONE and ONLY, going to be released in Europe? Well, you could have fooled me. Gee. Now, the almighty forum nerds are saying its ONLY Europe! Ha!
I have to keeping fixing this stuff for you. Jeez!
Hey Stinky, I mean Blinky, why don't you not post anymore since all you do is criticize or tell people they are wrong, without providing any information other than telling them they are wrong.
Stop being a troll, go back to you bridge.
Haha! Garbage. Pure trash. Reporting on rumors = the same thing as speculating on rumors. So, don't act like you are some sort of expert. You are not. Nobody on this forum (me included) is. So, step back from the keyboard. Take a nice deep breath. And count to 10.
