    You forgot dimensions! We still have no idea how thick the LTE version will be. I don't know how I feel about the "little bit bigger" comment.... I don't want to carry around a brick when the alternative (Razr) is only 7.1mm.

    I thought I heard British in his voice. The character being French does make sense with the name now that I think of it.


    I think it is horrible that they make our military dress up like elves. Is it a holiday thing or just budget cuts?

    Agreed... seen so many of those... but this one was really good. The need to revise that battery spec, though ;)

    Don't I actually get my own avatar in 3 more posts?

    I have a good one to use...

    One more?

    How do I add an avatar?

    I'm very excited about no longer being "junior". My mother can now be proud.

    That elf costume would probably be more effective than the current USAF ABU uniform. That was a multi-million+ dollar mistake! Thankfully they're transitioning to Multicam uniforms for deployed personnel.

    Trying to think of something on topic to post with this but am drawing a blank. lol :D

    At least I've learned to "hide" my off topic stuff so it doesn't get deleted right away hopefully :p

    Congrats! Go into user CP (control panel) (top left of any forum page). Click into it, hit edit avatar and the rest is easy. You can only have a certain size. If you want a bigger size, you can become a vip member for 20 bucks and join is in the VIP lounge and schmooze. ;)

    I feel the same way. I don't need a tablet, so anything that fits in my pocket is good for me. It is a great thing the SGN fits! I still can't believe it is coming to Verizon! When I switched service, I never expected Verizon to get a Nexus device. I thought their desire to control everything would never allow it. Now that I think about it, maybe having the iCrap on the network helped. This may have paved the way for Verizon to be more open to not being able to control everything about a device. If so, thank you Crapple!

    Yea, sorry. Multi posting is ok on occasion, but is generally frowned upon so I needed to merge them all. No hard feelings? ;)

    Well, they did it with the OG droid and the Droid Eris. Then came the love of Bing (lord knows why) and the bloatware just expanded from there. I'm hoping that ICS will change that in a lot of ways, although with them knowing that bloat can be shut down, it may entice them to load even more bloat on future phones. Maybe Apple did help this in some way, if so I actually thank them for it.

    Maybe the bloat and extra bloat is actually a good thing if we can now get rid of it. The more bloat that they put, the more storage space they need to put into the phone!

    Was the Eris vanilla android? I thought it wasn't.
