    sooo pumped for the 9900. tricky thing is i may be moving to somewhere the 9900 won't work so it will be the 9930. does anyone know any big differences between the 2? besides cdma v gsm?
    That's about it - besides the different carrier bloatware.

    Just noticed the dates in the video and photos are June 1st/2nd How come they put this preview up like a month after filming?
    Video editing and the write ups? The writing needs editing too..

    Great post. Thanks! Usually Engadget seems to post Blackberry hate articles all the time.

    ...and all the tablets are "1280 x 800, Nvidia Tegra 2, 16 GB Memory" blah blah blah. It's really one device manufactured (and designed, tested, marketed, distributed, etc.) by multiple companies... which is a huge wasteful duplication of effort.

    Imagine the cost savings if Google just put together a spec and companies would brand it and then install their own software layer to add value / differentiation... cuz the state of the art for Android devices is all the same internals with slightly different form factors or shapes or case designs (amongst a handful of processor / screen resolution / form factor combinations)

    It's not a sustainable business model for companies in competition with one another... it will all come down to who can manufacture and market their version of the Android devices cheapest.

    RIM at least has a unique value proposition. Despite the similarity of the devices in their product line, they don't have 5 to 10 competitors putting out almost the exactly same device with the same specs and operating system.
    I agree, not sustainable....must be why they aren't selling any ANDROID PHONES ANYWHERE.
