    This IS my next device! Its AMAZING. So fast, thin, just a few grams in weight. So far this is the biggest highlight of CTIA 2010! Video to come of size by side with my iPhone.

    I'm excited our contract is up soon on our BB 8330... Been waiting to make the leap to Android and if this goes to Verizon in the summer it could very well be it.

    If this works on TMO with 3G, it may be my next phone, but I also want to see what Apple does with the new iPhone. It would be nice to have an open source like Android though.

    It does make me anxious for the next iPhone. I really hope Apple changes it up some while adding 1GHz processor. Seems a few are going with the larger 4. screen size and I think it's appealing.

    Nice specs, but I never could get over Samsungs ugly hardware.

    Ok, now that is the first phone that could make me think about letting my Droid go, but the carrier (Sprint / T-Mobile / ATT) will keep me at Verizon.

    I think a 4.0 screen size is the perfect size. 4.3 is pushing it.
