    Just because it says QWERTY doesn't mean that it will be a physical QWERTY.. I've seen this before on candybar touch phones. The Safari did throw me off at first but I realized it must be something within the name of the WebKit browser, since Safari is also WebKit..

    Well I guess Htc came out with the diamond2 and Touch Pro2 one had keyboard and one had a better camera but other than that they were the same so i guess Motorola could be doing the same thing.

    If it does have a 4.3" screen I think I am going to pass. I played with an Evo and IMO it is just a touch too big to comfortably hold and navigate one handed. I was hoping for the 4.1". May consider the Samsung Galaxy S again if the screen size on the X is true.

    Yeah, after i wrote that i figured they meant like text input on the physical keyboard was qwerty, the 4.3 inch screen is kinda huge though, i was hoping for a 4.1. Ah well, my phones are all dying on me now anyway.....

    So its a 3640? Wouldnt that put the proc at 1ghz. Maybe thats why your friend said it was a 1ghz processor? Would also show why it is benchmarking so high?

    That could be, but this person said snapdragon but maybe someone told him/her that it was 1Ghz and he/she assumed it was snapdragon. I guess will find out soon enough :)

    Am I correct to assume that July 29th is the date your NE2 agreement cycles? If not, are you suggesting that July 29th is a release date?

    There are rumors that around father's day there will be an announcement. I think most, myself included, are hoping release dates will be talked about at that point and hopefully preorder

    There is an insider on HoFo that is pretty reliable about stuff like this. bill23 I think is his name. but he always talks in code and riddles. His riddle about this implied that there would be some news about this phone on father's day.

    The more i hear about this phone the more i wish it would come to Europe. Anyway you guys on Verizon should consider yourselves lucky ur getting such an awesome phone. This destroys the EVO as far as im concerned.

    That's it for now- specs look good to me, man.. Might wanna put in the official name though.. I really don't know a whole lot more than any of you as far as official specs or release date- I just know that database is money, and when they put a phone in it, release is usually less than 2 months away. I'll definitely keep ya posted :)

    I'm just waiting for a android phone to come out with a good camera and scope for android updates.
    Droid X seems to be fiitting the bill, a Galaxy S rival with flash :p
    Anyone have any idea on Motorola's current camera quality? (IE As a hint hint nudge nudge of the "soon to be released" phone? ;) )

    AWESOME! Thanks! I just hope the 4.3" measurement doesn't include the glass part with black plastic under it (aka the part that isn't actually lcd screen). That would be a pretty big fail/let down. That wouldn't be the case, right? *pulls out his gun and sets it on the table* RIGHT?!

    Sweet pictures, the best leaked ones so far but they are still saying it has a snapdragon... but it has the 3630(most likely this) or 3640 clocked at 1Ghz at least that's what I'm gathering based off what insiders at howards have been saying.
