    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Damn, even the iPhone only costs $360 more a year for the data plan.
    It's misinformation. Vz charges $30/mo for the data plan, just like everybody else. BTW, pricing leaked earlier today via Gizdomo. It's $530 for a straight phone, or $180 subsidized by TMo (with a 2 year contract, obviously).

    Been using my 3gs on tmobile for a little while. Definitely will be selling it if the rumored specs are true. It's just an all around better phone than the iphone

    Unconfirmed tip on BGR about AT&T 3G. Would make sense for GOOG to do this IMO otherwise, as I've said in this thread, why even bother with an unlocked version. Other than TS being a special flower I mean.


    I am the most special flower. I bend Google to my will!!!

    T-Mobile charges $30. Should I have opted for the Droid, I'd have had to pay $45.99 to Vz.

    $550 a year for a data plan? No thanks. Not when my home DSL is half that.

    Let us know how you like it.

    Between this and the HD2 reportedly also going to T-Mobile I might have to switch carriers.

    I currently get 24% off my bill with AT&T. I should see if T-Mobile offers a similar (or better [​IMG] ) discount.

    I was wanting one but my TMobile account isn't up for renewal anytime soon. And there is no way in the world I'm spending $500 on a phone. For such hoopla around the release I was expecting something more novel. The only real novel idea out of this whole release is that the phone is sold independent of a wireless provider - at an over-inflated price at that. Big whoop!
    I figure I'll root my G1 for now. By the time I fuck it up I'll be eligible for the next Android-based phone that'll overtake the Nexus One.

    Looking at other things coming out at CES 2010... I'd much rather have a super-slim laptop/smartbook for $200 a la the one Marvell designed for use with their Armada 510 processor. That it was designed without Windows/Mac OS intended is an even bigger plus.

    I want this, and would potentially buy an unlocked version but I know those bitches at Sprint aren't going to let me activate it on my SERO plan. [​IMG]

    Do you live in the middle of bumfuck America that they have to charge you a $15.99/mo premium? I and everyone I know pay $30/mo for unlimited data for the Droid.

    I live in Houston, TX and according to their website the data plan on the Droid (or any smart phone) was going to run me $45.99 per month, and that doesn't even include texting.

    Went for the LG enV Touch with unlimited data and texts, and am quite happy w/ it. The only major gripe I have with it so far is that it doesn't natively sync address/calendar with MS Outlook, but there is a workaround that works kinda halfassed. So at least I didn't have to type in 400 contacts into the phone. It was still incapable of syncing the addresses though, just numbers and emails. *shrug.

    Anyway, I'm very excited about Android OS but have no problem waiting to see what's available in 2 years. So far it seems all I am missing out on is having to go home to upload my pics from the parties I go to onto Facebook, as opposed to all my friends being able to upload them directly from their phones.

    In 2 years I'm assuming phone and data prices will be down (hopefully), and there should be a nice repository of apps by then.

    Dude, what are you smoking? I just configured a Vz wireless plan for the Droid via verizonwireless.com using the Houston 77007 zip code. The email and web for smartphones plan is only $29.99.

    Smoking nothing and I was quoted $45.99 for 77081.

    Well, for shits and giggles, I checked again for my zip code and sure enough it's 30 dollars. When I signed up for Vz last month though I took advantage of the two for $99 deal they had, I added the two Droid Eris' to my basket, and the data package was quoted as $45.99 for each.

    Looks like they temporarily increased the price of the data plan for the Droid to make up for the fact that I would have gotten two of those phones for a hundred bucks. That's all I can think of, but I am surely not mistaken at that number, made my jaw drop.

    Better yet, the Nexus One is coming to Vz.

    We knew that already, that was yesterdays news. This is today.
