    So I set my phone down on a large paperclip and the paperclip stuck to the phone over the rear speaker hole. I wonder if it does have the magnetic docking deal like the Droid?

    If it does have magnets they don't provide the dock "awareness" functionality that the moto does. I think moto may have patented that.

    Depends on the type of speaker. Speakers like the ones found in your stereo or your car do. However, piezo-electric speakers don't. They use a varying voltage accross a piezo-electric substance, like a crystal, to generate the vibrations. I think, though I'm not positive, that cell phones use piezo-electric and not standard speakers. Anybody know for sure?

    Edit: Guess I should have pulled out my XV6900 before I posted. There seems to be a magnet at the bottom of it's speaker hole. Though on a normal speaker the magnet is in the center.

    I read somewhere that the magnet is used to hold the kickstand in place when it's not being used. I haven't seen the phone so I can't confirm.

    There is no kickstand. You could be thinking of the EVO (Sprint).

    Sorry, after looking for a link I figured out it was the EVO I was reading about with the magnetic kickstand. :eek:

    Carry on, I have no idea why a phone would have a magnet strong enough to pick up a paperclip.

    Cant we just have 5 more min to speculate on the magnet, why you gots to go and ruin our funzys.

    I imagine the magnet is actually a wireless charging component. And that all i will have to do is just place my phone near a wall outlet and presto, that mofo is charged all up and stuff.

    Now im imagining it allowing the phone to levitate. This will revolutionize the corporate desk accessories market. Instead of the 4 hanging magnetic balls that soo many managers have on their desks, you can call up 4 lackies with the 3 way calling feature on teh incredible, and have them all stack their incredibles on your desk and watch them magically click and clack together.

    Take that "goldman sacks".

    Plus the incredible will make those inspirational posters obsolete.

    Hang in there kitty will be replaced with 1 incredible, but the cuteness factor will be instantly upped 10 fold.

    there,

    Now, END OF STORY> ?
