    I think Verizon got the original Pro phone.  My guess is that this phone will probably be exclusive to Verizon, since it seems like Vz and Moto are best pals as far as Android phones are concerned.

    On the other hand, there is a chance this could come to T-mo.  It’s not a screaming high end phone, which are the only Moto phones that come to T-mo.

     Super-sized new Samsung smartphone snapped by spies? Sadly notLooking like a combination between the previously spotted Samsung Hercules and the current Galaxy S2 model seen in the UK, this whopper of a device could have literally been the next big thing from Samsung’s phone wing.Instead, it appears to be Samsung’s Galaxy S Personal Media Player - an Android-powered iPod Touch rival, replete with the Android Market for apps.There’s a few points that suggest it’s the PMP (on the right) the front-facing camera is on the right of the front, whilst the traditional physical button is a rare occurrence with most of Samsung’s recent Android offerings; all the US variants have plumped for four capacitive buttons below the screen.We could be wrong, but as it stands, we’re going to call a spade a spade; it’s probably not a new Samsung Galaxy smartphone. The device hasn’t been pegged for launch just yet, but that five-inch model looks pretty tempting.Source: GSM Arena

    Since Motorola learned that MotoBlur is a dirty word in our circles and retired it, we won’t know how much junk is in this phone until it comes out…I so miss the keyboard on my Treos…

    I need a physical portrait keyboard. I would consider this phone, especially since Blackberry brainlocked and priced the 9900 above even the iPhone…and then T-Mobile priced it into the stratosphere. If this phone was $375 off contract I might buy it.

    Was at a T-Mobile store in Manhattan today. The manager told me that the off-contract price will be $599. After I picked my jaw off the floor and stopped laughing, I skulked out of the store.

    A sidebar here. There was a customer who was standing near a store phone…on hold with Customer Care. She had been on hold for 75 minutes. That way, way, way beyond awful T-Mobile on-hold music was blaring from the speakerphone. I guess that “Sharon” and “Peggy” and “Marv” in the Philippines were busy weaving their magic for other lucky T-Mobile call-ins.
