This is my "Passion" theory put together by many bits and pieces of info and rumors. This is my first thread here and I know a lot of this info is found in other threads but I have a theory and wish to share and see what others think soo... -I think the code name "Passion" project is the Google phone and is supposed to be a huge undertaking in the smart phone world over many carriers, hence the great lengths everyone is going through to keep it hush hush. This also makes sense for Verizon to push the hell out of the Droid due to any deals they had with Motorola first...push that out the way instead of trying to run both advertising campaigns. -I think it was originally going to be VOIP but would probably end up hurting whoever carried it, plan wise... No money. Plans would start at like $30 - $40 bucks and I'm sure the execs up top weren't liking the sound of that. Probably benefits Google anyways cause they probably made a deal for more money not to have it VOIP. -I think that other HTC phone in most every rumored pictured web page is not the "Passion/Google" phone cause the screen is to small on it, aesthetically if it were it would make the phone too huge if it had a 4.3 inch screen in it. -I don't think it will be running Sense UI. Makes sense, if Google has total control, why would they allows another companies trademark software running over it. -Also makes what the C.E.O said about them not reproducing the HD2 with android also true cause then it would of had HTC sense on it and would have been HTC branded. This is probably due to a deal with Google again so no HTC phone will over shadow this phone for a while. -I think Google chose to go big with this phone, hardware-wise, because they weren't satisfied with the G1's hardware. Also helps sales if you have the current largest screen alone on the U.S. market. That alone will be a huge selling point in this country. Remember only like 20% of consumers use sites like this. So most people will walk in, say "WOW" and purchase on that alone! Most won't even know what a 1ghz Snapdragon processor brings just that it sounds cool. Now what I wanna know is, is HTC going to release a similar phone in the future with Sense on it? It looks, to me, like this will be "The Phone" for at least a little while. Hopefully they won't end up releasing something better a month or 2 after I purchase. I'd like to have something cutting edge for a while!
