Could be sort of a BB killer for some. I might go take a look myself.

I held this Droid Pro side by side with a Torch... Very similar in many ways...
Except, given my experience, the Torch battery will last much longer.

A very high possibility that you are correct NJ. The battery life on my 9800 has been quite impressive ever since I got it. Much better than the iPhone and even my 9000.

Journalists have imagination? I thought they were just reusing what the company PR department sent them. Sometimes they are even paid to do that.

I try to be rational about a lot of the latest and greatest. I am curious when something will be marketed as the Android killer. It's only a matter of time. My issue is that it likely will come out of China.

German engineering at it's best? Or is it German propaganda at it's best? At least the guy in the photo did not have a Hitler mustache.
