Check the update, says its a hoax. Furthermore, everyone gettin pumped about the snapdragon and its processor better check the phone its on before purchasing, i.e. Passion. Even with the snapdragon processor it will not be faster than the Droid. As told by BGR.
Even if this phone isn't as fast as the Droid, Ill be happier with the styling of the Passion. after using the Droid for a few weeks, i started to dislike the sharp corners and the "chin" especially when I tried to use the physical keyboard. I cant wait for the Passion to drop!
Verizon wants to sell both Droid and passion, so it lets droid keep Christmas sales and passion will take over after. The problem is it doesn't want people abandoning their Droids when Passion comes out, so it recently upgraded service cancellation fee for smartphones to $350!
Sorry to say, but Verizon's been expecting people to feel exactly the way you (and I) do, so I'm going to hold out on buying the Droid until the 2nd week of January just to see what happens. THEY ARE BOTH SO COOL im not used to having a problem of TOO MANY cool phones on verizon lol
