    Well I have been waiting patiently for the passion but as I read the review from engadget about the HD2 today:

    HTC HD2 review -- Engadget

    It occurred to me that the Passion, as bad *** at will undoubtedly be, will just be too large for me. It's a BIG phone and I'm not sure how that battery is going to power that display for longer than half a day. It dwarfs the droid and the iphone. I think the droid is the one for me.



    Also, I know the droid keyboard is getting a bad wrap but, there are benefits to hard keys, like being able to utilize hot keys in apps and google quick search. That is something I always envied on the bold and tour vs the storm.

    Just my opinion. To each his own on the phones.

    Guys, he's saying the size of the phone will be too big. Android will not cure that.

    ^landscape view should be wide enough, no?

    In regards to the op I was thinking the same thing about size of the passion / hd2. Some people like big girls though. That phone is just huge though. No way it fits in a pocket as easily or comfortably as the droid or iphone.

    Plus with a screen that size they're going to have issues with battery life if it's clocked at 1ghz...

    Geez you guys are harsh. Look how quick you bite! Yes I was referring to the size since the passion supposed to be a variation of this phone. A 4 inch screen is going to be hard to comfortably hold. I like the way the droid feels in my hand. Even my storm feels wide.

    Of course I know the passion will be android. You don't have to talk at me like I'm not in the room. Lol

    A device with the screen like the HD2 will only be a problem for the legions of folks that did not grow up using game controllers or portable game consoles.

    And not everyone needs to plop a phone into their pockets.

    And..a device like the HD2 will only be beneficial to folks who grew up using this:



    I'm not saying it wouldn't be cool to use, browse the web, run tons of widgets? Yes. Would it be good holding it up to your ear? I'm not sure about that...for me anyway.

    The droid is sick, sicker than sick. The keyboard gives it depth....applications can only get stronger......

    The HD2 form factor is awesome, if it had Android I would buy it in a heart beat.

    I'm not sure what any of this has to do with the Passion, it isn't going to be the same form factor and I doubt any bigger then the DROID.

    Out of curiosity, where did you get exact dimensions for a phone that is, for all intents and purposes, a rumor still?

    And for those talking about it being too big, it's 4mm taller and wider than the iPhone and less than mm thicker, assuming SG has the right dimensions.

    That phone looks sweet...and big. Have to wait and compare it to the Eris. If it's too big, I'll take the Eris, hands down. By then, 2.0 will be here or just around the bend.
