That is impressive but is that phone a smartphone or dumbphone and also (most importantly) is it coming to verizon?
It's an Android phone and I've been under the impression that all Androids are smartphones, but to be honest, that's more of an assumption. As to whether or not it'll come to Verizon, I doubt it. It'll make it's debut in the UK in February and it may never come to the States at all. I think it will, but I think Sprint or T-Mobile will be the lucky carrier.
The HTC Passion, though is RUMORED to be released before Christmas. It's also RUMORED to be going to Verizon. From what I can gather, it's (and this is completely just another of my assumptions) going to be a cross between the HTC Droid Eris and our beloved Motorola Droid. But both Verizon and HTC have been so tight-lipped, who knows. If we don't hear anything real soon, I don't suspect we'll see it till next year.
