This thread can be the new and only thread for Passion/Bravo latest news.
i love me some dream angelz
my new favorite thread.
Me'z predicts that only 1 in 10 posts here will be about new news.
Being that THIS post is number 4, that means 5 more posts before someone posts actual news
i wish we could get matching tops for the outside angels to match the middle angel....
ok. just spoke to HTC Taiwan, global office:
Phone: +886 266391147
the nice person that I chatted to said that he has no information about release dates of any new HTC models.
he said its up to the marketing team when they make an announcement. he said to keep checking the HTC website.
I asked him if new phones would be released in Taiwan before other countries, and he said that there could be a more global release date, rather than staggered. (but this may just be his own opinion). he had a good knowledge of the website and the phones and english language.
i let him know that I want to buy a phone ASAP, and I am prepared to wait a month or two for a new phone (bravo/passion/incredible), but if its going to be 4 or 5 months, then I am not prepared to wait.
he said he wished he could help me and tell me a release date, but he has no idea.
again, he mentioned for me to keep checking the HTC website.
annoying! coz I want to decide whether to get an iphone 3gs or wait for the upcoming new HTC phones!!
on a side note (but an IMPORTANT ONE):
the nexus one (made by HTC) ranks in with a VERY HIGH SAR (radiation level)... and since the bravo/passion/incredible are pretty much the same phone (rumor), then I am worried that they will also carry a HIGH radiation level!!
nexus one SAR (radiation rating) from the 'owners manual' (page 26) is:
0.867 w/kg Head @ 1g
1.39 w/kg Body @ 1g
0.823 w/kg Head @ 10g
1.53 w/kg Body @ 10g
the US absolute limit is 1.6 !!!
so you can see that the nexus one comes VERY close to this!!
the iphone 3Gs is around 0.79 (as a comparison)
(1g is the US standard, and 10g is the European standard).
so, if the bravo/passion/incredible are equally as high as the Nexus One, then i am definitely (sadly) not buying any of them
so,, now is waiting time!!
I feel bad posting this,a s it makes 2 bravo-related posts before we hit 10..
(me - i've read for a while - but not posted, this was the first time i had anything worth posting).
I was speaking with a friend on how i was going to pick up a droid on friday, as there has been no word on the bravo. Her response:
Release date: March 7th. She was the supervisor for the Warranty department for Verizon, and was laid off two weeks ago.
A phone released on a sunday?
Could your friend have been talking about the recently tipped HTC Incredible instead?
Could be. But the fact its a sunday is questionable. I hadn't even noticed that fact.
my personal and professional opinion is that I am not concerned with non-ionizing radiation
Did she say a name of a phone specifically that's coming out? Could be the Devour, Incredible, or something else really cool we don't even know about (doubt the last one, though).
With that in mind, drill her for as much information as you can buddy!
Yes, silkchaos, if you get to talk to her again, see if you can figure out which phone she was actually referring to. I am very curious, thanks for the info.
I've heard around these parts people mentioning a couple devices that might hit end of month and now this. All I can say is, something better show up on the FCC approval database by the end of the week, or next week at the absolute latest. Only once have I seen Verizon release anything relatively soon after FCC approval and that was the Blackberry Tour in about 14 days. Everything else has been a month or longer after approval. Odds aren't in favor of any early March launches at this point.
If the rumored Bravo is different than the Incredible, I hope there is enough to differentiate them so as to make it easier for me to decide.
Biggest difference will probably be that they will be on different carriers.
Got a briefing today that T-Mobile UK stores are taking the first intake of the HTC Bravo in wk 13 which will be around March 22nd onwards
I hope it'll be out here around the same time!!
