    Yep, and I think the plastic that is there maybe be denser or just more meaty pieces rather than big light flimsy pieces that surround a lot of the edges of the phone like the cover does on the charge. Basically the fact the light flimsy cover being relegated mostly to just the back face and not the actual sides that you are gripping helps give this solid effect.

    It did seem plenty dense and weighty though even though it didn't weigh much. I would guess the S2's have a similar feel.

    Right now you can get unlimited data (throttled after 5GB) and 100 minutes for $30 a month on T-Mobile. Great plan. I just would like to have the Verizon unlimited LTE.

    But every day that passes takes me a little closer.

    This is EXACTLY what was told to my buddy that is a Verizon reseller on Wednesday from one of the Verizon higher ups. He said that it had nothing to do with the LTE issues and everything to do with some software bug. Posted this awhile back.

    Holla! If I had a Vikings polo on today I would also be sporting the paper bag hat. Instead of watching games with hope I've taken to watching them for entertainment. A little piece of me died the night Brett Favre made the most ill-advised throw in recent memory.

    I'm still in awestruck that the box is plain white, and VZ actually kept something vanilla for once. Maybe they ARE learning a little (even though its just a stupid box) :) Anyway, looks very sexy.

    Ah... yes I remember Tastee and they were not great. But I'll take almost any place in NJ over the pizza here in Ohio.

    That's a pretty nice MPG. I think I get like 12 in the city. I wouldn't have it any other way though... I love my M5.

    Just got back from a Radio Shack in Los Angeles. They had just received a shipment of them. Thought I might be able to pull a fast one but their system is not showing a price. I was able to fondle it for 5 minutes. It does feel bigger than by DX but felt lighter and fit in my hand well.

    They said they would call me as soon as it was ready to sell.

    Got my nexy fix for the day. Anyone else wanting one might try a local Radio Shack.

    So I went to my Verizon store today asking for a nexus. He said he can sell me one next week. So I got a rent-a rezound which will hold me over.

    This is subjective. When I was able to play with the Nexus my only complaint was that I thought it felt too light and a little cheap compared to my Droid X. I wasn't thrilled with the heft of it. It won't stop me from getting one but I don't know if I would say it feels solid. Again, this is all subjective.

    What do you do with 100 minutes? I'm not one to yack on the phone but that's pretty small. Especially with most people ditching land lines these days.

    That's interesting because I am actually coming from a DX, and I love the feel of a semi-heavy phone. I'm a pretty big guy too and having something heavier makes it less susceptible to it flying out of my pancake hands lol.

    I am actually thrilled to see the ear buds are nearly identical to my stereo bluetooth headphones. I lost one of the rubber ear pieces somehow, now I will have a new one to replace it!! It just gets better and better :D

    Dang, "VCast Media Manager" cable... I know it means nothing besides the annoying sticker, but it's just another thing that should be untouched by Verizon :/
