    I have noticed that all the phones are starting to look alike. I realize that you can only make so many different designs. With that in mind, if a company can't come up with something original, why bother to continue to re-create the same things. For instance, if you look at all of the HTC phones, they all look the same! Why do we need another one that looks like the other, but has a different name?

    Its not about the look, its about the guts, all laptops more or less look the same, same for desktop PC's.

    Even Master designer Apple kind of look same. Very little difference from the 1st to the iPhone4.

    What matters is what we have in the brain not the looks per say.

    If our brains mattered so much, we wouldn't need 'smart' phones. LOL!

    How much differences are there on the insides to make such a difference? Well, the latest VZW HTC is supposed to have a kick stand!

    I recently saw my first Incredible. Stock. Blows my rooted, over clocked, custom ROMed Eris away. Most people probably wouldn't notice the difference but I sure did.

    Swyped from my Eris running xtrSense 3.

    Processors, camera MP, front camera, LTE (coming soon), size of screen and soon there will be dual core processors. Its going to be exciting to say the least.

    My wife had the Eris, then I got her the Fascinate, blew it out of the water, she was floored at the different in speeds.

    How many different ways can you configure the guts of a phone?

    I guess it's just me. There seems to be too many phones coming out; flooding the market with too many choices. There is a line between offering choices and confusing the consumer.

    Your observations are on-track, My-Droid. Android platforms have really converged in terms of offerings for various features and functionality. It may very well become only a matter of picking the network that works best for you.

    I've been on an eBay kick and trying out the different Verizon droid models. Functionality is pretty consistent over the DInc, Droid X and Fascinate. How the device feels in my hand (tend to drop the Droid X too much when using it one-handed), the UI (or lack of UI), and display. I keep going back and forth between devices trying to understand which features are most important to me. Not easy, by any sense of the imagination. Best recommendation is to think about how you use the device, and prioritize what is important. For me screen size is important. Too small, and the icons seem cramped. Too large, I tend to drop the device.

    My next conquest should have a Tegra 2 processor, LTE and AMOLED screen. Kind of narrows the playing field. But, that is what I've grown comfortable with.

    I saw the Motorola Atrix on the Wired site. Where is the line where a phone stops being a phone? Two processors? Hopefully, more ram will be available so I can play Battlefield: Bad Company 2 while at drill! But, seriously, does a phone need so much?

    I think when all but maybe the quarter inch perimeter of the face is a glass screen, they do tend to look alike. However I would hope that when u turn it on u can see a big difference.

    The guts are what u r buying. Oh, and coming from my 4.3" masterpiece, SIZE MATTERS!

    I guess you are right. I remember a time when you could tell what phone someone was using by just looking at it. Now, you REALLY have to look at a phone to tell what it is.
