    Flash? Keyboard layout?

    I didn't find anything regarding the camera flash (if there) and I haven't seen keyboard pics in a while. Though it could be buried in the 800+ posts.

    Ok, so it won't be released with Eclair.

    1) Will it be OpenGL ES 2.0 capable on release?
    2) Any information regarding the CPU/GPU combo?
    3) If it's coming before holidays (late Nov early Dec), how will it not be running Eclair? Could it be possible that the one you saw 3 weeks ago had Donut because, simply put, Eclair isn't just ready?
    4) Will it have MotoBlur?

    Here is current info from someone who actually has the newest H/W. Fact is it is not running Donut seeing as the info is wks old posted above. this is info from is as of this AM. And no it will not have Blur. That is Moto Andriod UI, and this device is being released as a google experience device so it can't have Blur.

    and has a app market so you can dl tons of free apps or paid apps
    youtube plays in full HQ,my pc doesnt even do that
    the music player plays very clear and just loud enough.
    the soft qwerty is so damn accurate it isnt funny
    the hard qwerty board is like the htc i would say
    phone is super slim and thin but like a large dare
    the load time of pages is lightning fast.

    i wish i could post h/w pics or screen shots but its under wraps tight.
    i wonder where the other fellows are getting there pics from? *cough*

    Here's another prediction since we're in a prognosticating mood...

    This thread will crack 1500 posts before it is released!

    I don't think that was/is the current model that was shipped to the ~10-15k VZW employees.

    -Any chance the verizon network won't be able to handle the network load of these types of phones (anything is better than ATT)
    -will the big app makers finally turn to Android for the better apps (navigation, the best fart apps)
    -will it come out too late for my 2 year upgrade to be used effectively (not likely, Verizon lags hard and only takes on phones after months tuning)
    Verizon will not Gimp the OS of the phone, Motorola will be designing their UI. This is said to be a Google Experience phone so they cannot change much when it comes to Googles OS ref model. Verizon Wireless joined the Open Source Alliance so the only thing I can think of them possibly "crippling" is the GPS functionality due to networks Apps like VZNavigator, Vcast, etc. A solid version of Android 2.0 will probably come late December unless there is a hold back. Verizon's Network will be able to handle the phone perfectly fine due to the fact that it isn't on a crappy network like the American GSM networks (AT&T & T-Mobile) and for the last question it depends when your NE2 is due.

    They won't cripple GPS on this device. they have been unlocking it on some of there older units with firmware updates recently. And as we've seen by the pics already using google maps it really couldn't be crippled I wouldn't think.
