    Wow, early upgrades, motoblur not looking horrible, and wifi tethering!

    Other than the 2.2, no front facing camera, and Flash FAIL
    What do you think?

    If you can do the 13 month upgrade this year, you can do it at launch (according to the conference)

    yeah i got the droid at launch. but i called vzw and was told that i wont qualify for the upgrade because its for those with contracts ending in 10. and my second line ends in feb 11. but if i can you can bet i will get it.

    Well I know that they still do the annual upgrades but I am wondering if they are prohibiting it for this device. Today has got me thinking very hard about it. I really hope that they have a demo unit in stores a few days early so that we can test it out. And also that it gets into the right hands and gets rooted before we get it... Vanilla flavored Froyo anyone? Sounds tasty to me!

    Edit: Also what do you do for an annual upgrade? This is the first time that I will use it. Do I have to go to the store for it or what?

    Yes, only REAL verizon stores will do the annual upgrades. (so no third party, mall kiosk, or BBY stores)


    You get one every 13 months.



    P.S. It does NOT ship with 2.2 (so no foryo)

    Well you wont preorder it on the day it comes out.


    Verizon has been very "meh" about preordering product through them.



    Best buy will assuredly have preorders, but you wont be able to take advantage of the early upgrade through them.

    I'm in the same boat with my curve. I'm eligible for an annual upgrade July 5th to be exact.

    I actually received a notification today from Big Red giving me a green light for an early upgrade and 50 dollars off to boot. I can barely contain myself. July 15 can't get here soon enough!

    Or even the 13 month upgrade for BBY.


    You need to be ready for your 2 year upgrade for BBY

    Where did you get that notification from? Why do I never get these?! I called and can upgrade at 1 year on July 13th. If only I could get $50 off, I would be ecstatic.
