    Yeah...it's a shame, but taking what HTC did with their overlay of WinMo 6.5 and the awesome hardware of the HD2, it's not a huge loss.
    Man, if it had a sliding keypad..wow.

    Do you guys think the transition to android from winmo will be a smooth one ? I honestly don't know much about android. I am a big fan of motorola. The partnership of Motorola,Google and Verizon sounds like a good team to me.

    Now your talking!!!

    While I miss my trusty Nap ... just a bit, I am loving the Droid. It took me a couple of hours to figure out how to efficiently work within the Droid, and another day or so to find my favorite apps, but all and all, I am very happy:
    • Amazing screen
    • Great web browser (and true browsing experience)
    • Very service-able keyboard (it took me a day to use efficiently)

    THAT IS IT....IM DONE....
    last night while i ran clear temp to clean up a bit.... my phone froze. all i could do is a batt pull. when i turned it back on, all was lost. even My Storage was erased. well all but 3gb. so i lost 4gb of photos of my lil girl i wont see again.... most of them.
    i tried to run a sync every few days with My Phone but it never connects.

    well to my point.... im done with WM. today im going to check out the Droid and see what its really like.... F!!!!!!!!!!! im so miffed

    For anybody interested, we have a Toshiba TG01 floating around the office, although I have not seen it yet, its existence is confirmed. There are questions though if it will ever make it to market.

    I am jumping ship to Sprint and I got the Pre. If you can hold out, definitely get it when it hits for VZW. It is LEAPS and bounds above any WinMo phone including the TP2.

    No, thank you. There is nothing the Pre does that the Omnia doesn't do equally well or better, IMHO. And that keyboard..... :dft011:tounge_out

    But...to each his own! Enjoy.

    didnt do anything besides sware enough to cover a crew on an air craft carrier...
    i cant upgrade yet and full retain is stupid. ive started putting things back in but yall know how that goes. i still cant seem to get a full sync out of My Phone. it always says "cant connect yada yada yada" any ideas on that or am i the only one it doesnt like? and yes i did update to the new version.
    i have awhile to upgrade so by then all these new phones will be out dated so ill wait and see.

    If I understand everything correctly, you can see these at Sprint's website - they are just Verizon-branded versions of what is already out there, plus a tweak or two.
