    I know a lot of Tmobilers where anxiously awaiting an android phone worthy of the competition (that cannot get a NEXUS) to be released. The time has come. who is getting it?

    I was going to get it for sure, but after the Droid X was announced, I'm now a bit 50/50. I just wished it was released before the 20th since that's when my bill cycle ends, but whatever. Also, the pre-loaded apps on the Droid X is more useful to me then the ones coming with the Vibrant.

    One more thing, the accessories that comes with the phones is a plus for me with the Droid X. So, if T-Mobile is going to release similar accessories with the Vibrant(mainly dock and car mount) then it's going to be a tough choice for me.

    i will more than likely pick it up just because it seems like the only real superphone tmo will get in the next six months. if i can hold onto my G1 till the holidays i might do that but it is REALLY starting to show its age and i dont seem to have any other options. just sucks they took out the FFC

    It is both exciting and dissapointing. The deivce lacks:

    True HSPA+ hardware
    A front facing camera
    Bluetooth 3.0. :) (not that many or any other phones do, but I'm power hungry)
    Abundant ram/rom (again power hungry here)

    My choices were the galaxy-s or the dell streak. I guess I play the waiting game longer.

    there is no comparison.... vibrant>dell streak hands down. Nexus doesnt have true HSPA+ capability but i still get 4500 to 5000 download and .80 upload speeds. BLAZING

    I'm not worry about the connection. It's the dimensions of each phone. The design is a bit different besides the Vibrant/Fascinate. Also, just because it's going to be launched on all major carriers doesn't mean it will be backed up with loads of accessories. Only time will tell though.

    More of a market share means more of a chance. The nexus which is not as highly distributed as the galaxy will be. Probably the most poorly distributed powerhouse phone ever. But yet you can type Nexus one accessories into ebay search and a ton of products will come up

    *notice the bold*

    You can do that with practically any phone. I'm talking about good quality docks, cases, and car mount specifically made for the Vibrant that charges and has aux plug. I somehow doubt there will be a car mount for this device; and no, not talking about the crappy ebay ones that come from China. Like I said before, only time will tell. Well, hopefully it'll come out with the launch date and not months after.

    Yes, I know there is more of a chance of it getting accessories, but chance isn't a word I want to hear. I want to hear "it will" not "high probability." ;)

    the one good thing about the vibrant is its a lot like the Euro version of the Galaxy S so im sure any of the millions of accessories they make for those ones will fit and work for ours prolly not the sprint or AT&T one

    I've been excited since this was leaked way back when. And now that the hands on videos from the NYC event were released, I'm even more excited. I personally don't care about the lack of flash (night mode is pro) or the FFC. It's still a beast.

    Can the silver lining around the phone be removed, or changed more like Verizon's Fascinate? That thing could attract sharks its so damn shinny & metallic.

    The original Galaxy S dosen't have the silver lining does it?

    I'm personally glad it doesn't have a keyboard. No need for it with Swype. Since you work for TMo, have you not got your hands on the Slide? I had it for a week and it seemed Snapdragon-ish with how snappy it was.
