Another Droid look-a-like -- but this one does video-conferencing...

    Could an app be made to allow a face-2-face phone call with the Droid somehow? I guess we would need another camera facing front (unless theres a secret one already in there that we don't know about, :rolleyes: hehehe...).

    Anyway, it's Android, and it's amazing how they can get away with duplicating the Droid, all the way down to the lint in the earpiece, but the keyboard looks better: :cool:

    There's also sample videos on youtube of this thing in action. Some sites suggest that it's going to Verizon as well.

    I don't see too much duplicated. The DPad is the same and it's black and rectangular, and the ear-peace is quite similar...but there's no lip, the keyboard is quite different, the back is much more curvy, the speaker on the back is different, the buttons at the bottom are quite different, etc.

    Nice phone. I guess you could do a video conf app for the Droid if you just used a headset to talk, otherwise talking to the back of the phone is going to muffle the voice, obviously.

    I wouldn't call it a look a like. The vphone has been floating around for about the same amount of time as the Droid.
