    I am not sure, it looks like the Hero's trackball. All I know is that it is rumored to come with the 1GHZ SnapDragon processor....

    So far from pictures (the limited ones out there), it appears that the trackball will be the only physical button....well, I am not counting the navigation on screen keys. It does look hot....the only thing, I wish they would change the color from that tan to something darker

    I am not a good judge since I have always liked the trackball but like I posted earlier the trackball on the eris is only needed foe the camera. Which I like versus tapping the screen

    I could forgive the trackball and color considering it will have a 1Ghz processor and Sense UI....

    I can not believe we are all excited about ditching our beloved Storms. And on BlackBerryOS!!!

    I played with my buddies new Droid last night. If it weren't for the fact that the darn thing is clunky (needs rounded corners) and that the slide out keyboard is a dud it would be a nice phone. I AM sold on Android--it WILL be the OS everyone will try and emulate.

    Will the HTC Passion have the same or similar screen resolution? If so I want it NOW!!!

    Like I said I don't know it to be true. The one reason I THOUGHT it might be an Android phone was the pull-up tab at the bottom middle of the screen. Very similar to the Droid pull-up tab.

    Never thought you were. True Cowboy fans never are! :hail:

    I did look at the Imagio and you are correct--it is the same phone with a different home screen.

    At any rate--I just hope the Passion isn't what the Droid is--a rectangular brick with a useless slider!!!

    I ditched the Storm2 and got the Droid and must say that its refreshing to have something thats inovating. As for clunky, try looking at Blackberry OS.

    I wasn't even going to consider the Storm2 as an upgrade until I got to play with the Droid. All I needed do was compare the time that WeatherBug takes to update the GPS fix in Storm vs. Droid and I was sold.

    As an aside, my pal downloaded some third-party apps that allowed him to tether the Droid to his laptop. I asked him to go to speedtest.net and test the connection speed. 14.2 MB per second. Wow!!! My broadband card does 2.2 MB. I fell out of my chair!
