    149.99, half inch smaller screen, looks like the same specs with ICS. I might would consider picking this up at that price alone. Discuss...

    Dual core, 1 gig of RAM and ICS. All for $149. You can't beat that with a baseball bat.

    And 1080hdp video.

    I wonder what this does for our chances of getting an official ICS update that has been rumored around the board.

    If true then that's super awesome! I'm not too sure about that half inch though, my girl has the attain which is 3.5 and it just looks so small compared to my connect. But damn is the price nice..

    Could it be said this phone will end up being better than ours? What's our ram size? I can't find the specs for that on the metro site

    There pretty much the same. Except the connect has a 4" screen and gb. While the motion has a 3.5" screen and ics. They both have a gig of ram.

    It's a huge improvement over the S2 which I have in my evo shift, the S4 is mostly GPU integration and power management over the S3.

    So minus screen size there's no real cons to this Motion in comparison to our Connect so far?

    Damn that price, I bought my connect the week it dropped at full 349.99, damn that price....

    It's a DAMN good phone for that price. A frikin steal. It'll probably drop down a bit in a month or two.

    It's gonna fly off the shelves.

    I still can't get over the fact the (pretty much) upgrade to our connect will cost 200.00 less than what the connect cost when it dropped. M/f'ing metro...

    Edit:
    Oh and the esteem is still @ 300+ btw

    lets hope the phone is similar in other ways too. devs may be able to port ics or pick at the kernel and see what they need for the connect. but that's just wishful thinking
