    Yeah, me too. I'm hoping that Motorola as a few phones to announce at MWC. This phone is missing the camera "hump" which I am now used to, but that wouldn't stop me from trying it out.

    Good luck to us,

    Isn't LG threatening to have a phone more powerful than the Spectrum? I've loved each of their feature phones that I had. Maybe it's going to be a WP7 device. I'm still interested.

    with the ICS/no-capacitive-button phones i've seen (galaxy nexus, this image, etc), i can't stop staring and being so disappointed with all the real estate wasted on the bottom of these phones....

    I used to feel the same way about the onscreen buttons of ICS. I've been running the EncounterICS ROM on my DX for a while now with the onscreen button mod and I gotta say I've changed my mind. Granted, the buttons are modified and the space they take up is only slightly more than the status bar so the space is smaller than what the picture shows. The "recent apps" button alone makes multitasking an absolute breeze.

    What is the next "hot" phone that everyone is waiting for for use on verizon?

    It is almost upgrade time, and I want to know which phone to wait for.


    Thanks

    Well, I have just officially read that none of the
    devices at MWC will hit VZW...shame. MWC is
    mainly for gsm boys...
    Have to wait for CTIA...
    Looks like all we have to look forward to is the
    Dinc3/fireball, lg cayman and Droid fighter,
    whatever that's gonna be, hitting VZW...
    Shame, none of the HTC one series will hit VZW...
    I got an upgrade coming 7/28/12...

    Droid fighter might actually be the Dinc3/fireball...maybe...
    It was on hTC's code name list... Fighter that is...

    You know what they say about great minds...

    I would be cool if VZW would drop a hTC One S variant.
    This variant is rumored to be the Fighter/Dinc3.
    Dual core 1.5 GHz S4 processor with LTE chip built in.
    I hope it is truly a variant with user replaceable battery and Sd card...
    The Dinc2 first surfaced as the Incredible S at the last MWC and we got the variant of that sooooo, we'll see... ;D...C'mon CTIA in NOLA...

    Yup, it looks like the CTIA show in New Orleans will the next place that the manufacturers smartphones will be showcased. It's May 7th thru the 10th. A long way off for me, I have a NE2 (my last, I'm guessing) available on March 15th.

    Luckily my "X" is still doing a "bang-up" job for me. (he said with his fingers crossed)

    Hopefully there will be some new smartphones announced or at least rumored before CTIA. There was nothing from Motorola at MWC, so I'm hoping that Google/Motorola Mobility have something coming down the pipe that will absolutely blow us away. Hopefully anyway.

    Patiently waiting,

    Ok, forget about any verified info regarding Verizons next big phone.

    How about some rumors of Verizons next big phone! At one time awhile back a phone called the Dinara was mentioned... but no mention of it lately.

    Then this phone was mentioned,

    Said to be an ICS/no-capacitive-button phone.

    [​IMG]


    Since it was rumored..... nothing more...

    C'mon, anything we can talk about?

    Should I get the Galaxy Nexus now or wait to see if the quad-core phones come out in April like some are speculating?

    I'd wait unless you're itching to get something new. My Galaxy Nexus isn't all that.

    My DH and I are both up for upgrades within the next week. Unusually (because I'm typically the must-have-tech-geek in the family) he's asking me when the quad core phone are being released at VZW!! I promised him I'd check but it doesn't sound like there's any info on when that is, correct? To make things crazier (as in, I really want a quad core LTE phone NOW), even though our city isn't anywhere on the LTE list, I was told by a mobile phone sales person at Costco who had VZW herself that she started getting 4G in the area in the last couple of weeks and that they are testing for a release in a few more weeks.

    Slightly on and off topic, am I correct that if I have an unlimited data plan that VZW will grandfather that in on an LTE phone? I'm keeping fingers crossed for that!

    My wife and I are coming over from Sprint and need to do so by this weekend in order to keep our numbers. I'm looking at the GNex and RAZR (not MAXX) on Amazon and Wirefly. The RAZR was just reduced to $35 on a two year contract. I really want the GNex and ICS, but it's priced at $99. We don't want to spend alot on phones since we're already taking a jump in the monthly bill. My wife just want a 4G phone and to be off of Sprint. I'm either going to get the GNex and her a Bionic (free this weekend), or two RAZRs... What should I do?

    well it seems the price would even out which ever way you choose, so its all about the features you want. i dont know much about either phone (though people really seem to like the GNex). my dad has the bionic and he says its ok (came from the OG Droid). compare the features each one has and go from there. If you really want ICS, then GNex seems to be the way to go.

    Of All of Verizons current offerings, I'd take a Gnex or Rezound. Both have developer support with great roms. Much better than stock. Increased battery life etc. Between the Razr and Bionic, get the Razr. Better phone.

    You get stock ICS on GNex, and you can install really good working ICS Roms on the Rezound. The RAZR is at the mercy of Motorola, probably without ICS till this summer at the earliest. There is NO development for the RAZR.

    The rezound has a better 4G Radio than the GNEX. I have no experience with the motorola radio.

    I don't think We will see a quad core phone probably till late summer.

    It beginning to look like the Motorola Droid Fighter may be the next big phone from Verizon.

    It may be a RAZR MAXX with a 4.6" HD touchscreen and no physical buttons. Also most likely will be released with ICS 4.0. Rumor is that it could launch some time in April.

    Here's some info with a picture (albiet not to good of one) from UnWiredView.com.

    Verizon’s Droid Fighter made by Motorola, it’s a RAZR with HD screen Unwired View

    Might be a phone I'd give some thought to buying.....

    Yeah, I hadn't heard about the Fighter till I read this article this AM. Looks like it and the Inc 4G (DINC3, I guess) both may hit Verizon next month. I might not be able to wait on the SG3 if the Fighter shows up!

    DROID Duo To Strike Verizon Hard Before Samsung Galaxy S3 & iPhone 5


    Verizon has historically considered unlimited data as just that. 3G or 4G makes no difference. So going from a 3G phone to a 4G phone you retain your unlimited data. It may change in the future, but I'm hoping not, as I still have a Droid X.

    Hey, thanks for this link, I hadn't seen it before. It says the Fighter may come with a 1.8 Ghz processor.... Cool.

    Now just have to wait for more leaked info soon to be followed by official release specs.

    Patiently/impatiently waiting......
