    Well, nothing is known for sure yet, but the Droid 2 is said to have almost identical specs.

    Thanks for the info.

    How does the screen compare to the Incredibles's AMOLED screen? I love the colors and brightness of the AMOLED but feel very tempted by the Xtreme. If the screen is just as nice, I will probably take the plunge.

    I would imagine the screen will be on par with the Droid's screen as it's LCD and not AMOLED. For me that's better because I really don't like seeing the pixels on my Incredible's screen due to the pentacel issue.

    Thanks for the post! One more question than you might be able to answer and is really critical to some of us (I have two days left to return my INC.) Can you see the screen in daylight. I love the INC but its almost worthless outdoors in direct light. Thanks again!

    I'd try the Shadow (or even the Droid or Incredible) in the store before you decide that you MUST have a physical keyboard. I know several people who got the Droid because they HAD to have a physical keyboard because they hated X phone that didn't have one. Now, they don't use the physical keyboard on the Droid.

    Even if I get a Droid 2 and don't use the physical keyboard, it'll be worth it if the PS1 emulator comes to fruition.

    OK since everyone else missed a little something from mad's earlier post I guess I will inquire. Or maybe I am reading too much into it.

    MAD: I notice you said you had the X in hand. Now is that just short for Extreme or are we to assume that this is actually called the X or the Droid X????

    I'd like to know about the camera since the Droid 1 was very bad. Also would like to hear about the quality of the pictures and 720p videos as well as the HDMI output quality.

    Thanks for all of the info!

    I have a very simple question. I currently have a Storm 2 but am considering an android phone (I was a previous iPhone user, until my office moved and I got no service) I love the fact that I can make the font larger on the Storm 2, up to 14 pts. Can the font be made this large (my eyes are very bad)

    Does it have a front facing camera? The CEO of Motorola said today that they will release 2-4 phones this year with front facing cameras. Is this one of them?

    I don't get all the hype with the front facing cameras...I have one on my laptop and have only used it once in the year that I had it. Phones definitely dont need it IMO. So I hope the Xtreme doesnt have one since its just one more thing to break....

    I don't know how this comparison even makes sense. Do you make phone calls on your laptop? Is your laptop the same kind of communications device as your cell phone? It's two different things... In the long-run, the cell phone is the "right" device to have video calls and the laptop most certainly is not.

    Video calling itself has many hurdles to become successful. First of all, both parties have to have a device that's capable. Secondly, both devices should have a compatible service. Last of all, 3G can't sustain the speeds, thus the iPhone only does it over WiFi, which makes the usefulness quite limited. We really need 4G to make it a usable feature.

    So I actually agree that a front-facing camera is not that useful...yet. Maybe in a year or two.

    I really don't care about a front facing camera either, but would you say you wouldn't want one? I guess I am all about having extra features even if I will never use them, at least I will have it if I ever want to use it. Well as long as they are going to charge the same price for it, why not have more features if you can.

    Do you have kids?

    I have a 21month and a 5 month old and I use my webcam on my computers all the time with my family out of state. Most of my family are all on Verizon and are moving to Android phones as well. Having that option available at anytime would be priceless so my parents wouldn't miss an important event.

    Do you not have any friends and/or a girlfriend/wife? I use my webcam all the time and would also use a front facing camera often...

    But would It matter since Verizon can't do voice and data at the same time.
    Or is it using data to get VOIP and Video?
