@tpriddy,
Thanks for the post. Im not sure how u got the table to fit but thats pretty cool.

Side by side towards the iphone its looking pretty good. The battery life we will defintely lose but at least well have the capabilities of multiple batteries. The downside of running multiple applications simultaneously.

The storage and memory are the same card or different slot? I dont know to much about that stuff.

@Droid Motorola,
Considering Google voice is free, should minimum/month be "voice +$30 data +$5 SMS" vs "voice +$30 data" or "voice +$30 data +$3 VVM"?
