    While everyone is hyped up about the onyx 9700 and the storm 2 I would not be surprised if the motorola sholes coming out on verizon projected to be named the motorola droid according to the latest rumor steals the show from everyone.

    I wouldn't be surprised either. That thing looks like it its going to be great and I'd take it over the storm 2 and onyx. But I think this forum is for rumored blackberries.

    The Motorola Sholes/Tao/Droid has been slated for VZW from the beginning... Nobody here is excited because it is not made by RIM.

    I have to admit the new Moto Android devices and the new Windows 6.5 devices have my attention.

    yeah, mine too. This week I discovered seven beta, and it works very well on this clunky blackjack 1, winmo 6. I am getting both gmail and yahoo pushed to me with noticeably less battery drain than 15 minute pull intervals and it takes up a reasonable amount of memory, less than the browser, anyway. I have wandering eyes... or whatever that expression is.

    Either way, for the time being I am a little less sick of the device i'm using, and I can make a more informed decision about my next one.

    can a mod move this thread to the "other smartphones" forum? I'd like to discuss this one more, I know this isn't the place for it and I don't want it to get closed.

    I'm definitely going to take a good look at the Sholes/Tao/Droid when it comes out.

    I was hoping for a release before black Friday though.

    I admit... as much as I'm loving the BlackBerry world, the Android phones might be what it takes me to pull me away. The Storm 2, as much as I want it, makes me think I might get left behind. Not because it's bad hardware, but because the OS seems to be pretty stale and archiac.

    Then on the other hand... I trust Google with my data and information about as much as I do Microsoft. <shudder>

    It looks like VZW/RIM are just going to try and saturate the market with everything they have.

    I just dug around and BGR said its the Hero coming sometime in November. Although the exact quote said "several weeks" for releasing new devices. As far i know the Sholes is still on track for a December 1st release. Now if the Hero drops sooner before the Sholes, poor Storm its gonna not be very pretty.
