    I think the "big secret" is that front facing camera that was talked about awhile back.

    How is that possible if you saw Kevin's pic?

    The "surprise" is on that phone on the picture.

    If Kevin's pic isn't photoshopped why does it say platform version 4.2.0.17?

    Its not, and the answer is pretty simple if you consider the fact that the phone will be out until next year.

    Way to break Kevin blogger secrets. When Kevin states that he "photoshopped" a picture, it's always the real deal. What a sly devil.

    And I'll say it again, the Essex is not just the Tour + Wifi. That's all the hint you need.

    Ok, a few wild shots in the dark:
    .
    A new chipset that does CDMA &
    850/1900 GSM
    .
    A new browser?
    .
    Hahaha LTE ready?
    .
    Wait, anyone know what the difference is between platform versions on qwerty and touchscreens? (My lunch break is over, no time to search).

    Edit: forget the touchscreen. Sal confirmed on the previous that the surprise is NOT a touchscreen.

    The only thing different from other pictures is the lighting. Part of the bottom of the phone almost looks white so maybe there is something there that we are missing? Maybe a sprint logo and its exclusive

    That chipset idea might be onto something. Doesn't the "Blackhawk 10000" have both CDMA and GSM LTE? It could very well be just a rumor but who knows. It has to be a feature that most people wouldn't immediately know as other sources have not mentioned this "surprise." So I'm guessing internals. New processor/battery? Come on Salo. We need more hints!!!

    This is what's NOT the surprise:

    1) NOT a touchscreen

    2) It comes with 5.0 OS version, but that's NOT it.

    3) NO camera on the front.

    Take a guess...
