  1. My upgrade is December 3rd. I hope they still have some around at that time unlike the Incredible and X

  2. That thing is ugly, I don’t think you’ll have a problem finding one laying around….

  3. @Nick: Especially if you don’t have a smartphone now, VZW may move your upgrade date without too much hassle.

  4. Go to hell, Todd Palminteri. You’re not the boss of me.

  5. A list has been established of all who do not heed my demands.

  6. I like the look of the Droid Pro, and if the keyboard is anything like the Blackberry, it should be a very good alternative. I am not a fan of the original Motorola Droid’s fold out keyboard, so I am anxious to see how the Droid Pro’s keyboard feels and works. I am not blown away by the specs on the Droid Pro, it seems like a limited upgrade from previous Droids. The internationalization is a nice to have, but really not something I would use regularly.
