    Agreed, i have a Droid now and it seems that it's at least as big as that. Camera angle could be playing tricks or something but it looks to be at least 3.7.

    Also, it looks really really thin! I'd love for some Photoshop guru to render this thing up based on what we've seen and maybe try to extrapolate thickness based on what the camera is showing.

    I'm also hoping that RAM is bumped up to what the HD2 has. Perhaps it's also "hidden" in some way and can be unlocked with new ROM.

    I'm anxious to hear more about:
    * Processor clock
    * exact RAM
    * Wireless N?
    * Multitouch (right away? in all apps?)
    * FM (transmit and/or receive)
    * What makes it Dolby, Xvid/Divx, etc...there has to be something new to that
    * More about faceplate; can it be swapped? is that the final design? other color available?

    However, the back is ugly.

    Also it will have multitouch in everything because it has sense UI.

    Now we are talking. I know its still early, but what do you think the weight of this phone going to be? Compared to the Moto Droid at 5.96 ounces and the Nexus One 4.58 ounces w/ battery.

    I agree to the back cover..I hope they will change it when they release the phone.

    This might be more of a prototype. Notice that there is no Verizon branding on the front or back which a production VZW phone wouldn't be seen without.

    Great point.

    Now, let's not confuse. This is not the Nexus One. Google released the Nexus One, and that is how the Nexus One will in fact look.

    My requests:
    More Ram...how about 512. I don't understand why they would ruin a perfectly good phone that can multi task and not put in enough RAM
    A black back
    A decent release date
    physical buttons?

    Other Items for Thought....

    How much onboard storage memory or ROM? If that's how people like to refer to it.

    Is this gonna be our version of the Bravo as has been a pretty popular theory, or is this an entirely separate phone? The fact that it has an optical track pad and similar specs, seems like it's plausible. However, to answer the question about touch or physical buttons, from some of the pics and I think even in the video it appears the buttons are touch buttons. You kind of see them lit up at certain points, so this would be a deviation from the Bravo design.

    The optical track pad also looks different than the Bravo's. To put it the best way I can, The Incredible looks more like an optical track "ball" where as the Bravo looks more like a "pad" or flatter surface. That's only going off what I see in the pics and video though, which are all very dark on the bottom end of the phone so it's hard to tell.

    I also don't like the back, agree with the others who think it's ugly. I'd have to see it in person to decide for sure, but I'm fairly certain. Hopefully this gets changed or has options, but I don't know why I've always considered phones with interchangeable back / front covers sort of cheap looking.

    The RAM dissapoints me to, and I hope we haven't seen the final number. I'd like it to equal the N1, or I'm gonna have a hard time buying it over the N1. I'm spec obsessed, so if I know there's a stronger option spec wise, I'll really have hard time buying something with lower specs.

    Hopefully the screen is 3.7" at a minimum as well.

    Other question is that if this is NOT the U.S. Bravo, then will we still be seeing the Bravo over here on some carrier, or will that just never come to the U.S.?

    Nice looking phone either way, and exciting to see some new news.

    Got to get back to the Super Bowl, but the red back ruined it for me. I was looking forward to a big sense device that looked like the Bravo, but it kinda ruined it for me. Sorry, VZW. I'll just go with your Nexus unless you change the back to something more...black.

    That red back would nearly be a deal breaker for me. I do hope that it's not in red, or that it is interchangeable, or something.

    Great to see some confirmation. I'm ready, and have been waiting for this for a long time now. We will probably hear more about it next week at MWC if I had to guess.

    Lightened pic to see buttons. looks capacative and the trackpad looks very flush and small. me likey so far. I don't care about the back as we should be able to replace it.
    Would like the soft-touch coating though.

    Haha I know seriously, you guys are complaining about the red back? After waiting so long for a phone like this to come to VZW, the back your deal breaker? Put a cover on it. I think the N1 looks so out of date compared to this.

    No worries Bro. Someone will come out with a black back about 3 days after release. and it will probably support a bigger battery.
