    I was at the verizon store and me and my dad were talking about upcoming phones and we were talking about the touch diamond & when the verizon guy shows us this thunder dummy he had laying around so i got to mess with it and boy is it heavyy, but the back steel part feels nice and cold on your hands :] well here are some shots of the phones. Oh and that push button screen thingy yeah its not as hard actually its pretty easy to press.

    so how did the "push in" mechanism work? was the screen like soft or something? or was it hard?

    also, it makes wonder how long they had that thing lying around! it seems like that guy just pulled it out of nowhere!

    Nice, so it looks like the Verizon logo IS going to be on the back and not on the front. They are really dealing with this in the right way now. Thanks for posting these.

    BBerry, is there anything that was unimpressive about the dummy that you think will bother you on the final version?

    haha wow, i love that picture. i got a good laugh out of that.

    anyways, you say the pushing mechanism it's complicated, but do you think it was something you wouldn't personally like? do you personally feel they completely messed up on this?

    (i'm going to the nearest verizon store tomorrow, have to check this out)

    Not really the phone is perfect size not to wide but not to long and the battery door cover feels really really good in the hand, but the weight =/ im not sure it weighs more than the verizon voyager and thats kinda huge so idk but yeah the bottom buttons were easily pushed and overall ii really like the design of the phone

    Ok, all I can deduce from all this is that a release is imminent.

    I meant its complicated to explain but yeah it feels good to press it like an actual button how it would apply when writing an email i do not know =/ lol but it presses in very easily and i like that not to little force not to much force its actually pretty good just wanna figure out how it would apply with the actual applications

    I would HAVE to think, that if the stores have the dummy phones, the real deal CAN'T be far behind.

    Strange how the dummy model was heavy. Aren't the components inside missing?

    I like when a phone has a little bit of heaviness though, obviously not that much. It makes it feel less cheap and sturdy. I think I'm weird.

    When does the NDA usually get lifted before a phone release? I'm waiting for Crucial to cough up the differences between the 9500 and 9530.

    Wow - why would they have the dummies so far in advance of the release, unless, of course the release is sooner than we think. I'm still hoping for/betting on 10.01.08
