HP Press recap We’ll fill in the details when we get some of them

Tom Krazit:
It’s somewhat like the Pre with a slider design that moves up to reveal a QWERTY keyboard, one of the best they’ve made, he says. 2.6-inch screen, a gesture area, and it supports Flash. Built-in GPS.

Tom Krazit:
It also has a 5MP camera, and a USB port. It supports HSPA+, Wi-Fi, 8GB of storage, and the same memory as the Pre 2. It’s got the Snapdragon chip running at (I think) 850MHz. It can also be a hotspot for up to five other devices. ”

Hey Guys, I work for Verizon and just want to add a bit of info on skipping the activation setup an android device from show 1403. It is true that if you tap the four corners of the screen it will bypass he initial set up. But this method only works on some android devices. It is different for each “”skin”" ie. HTC sense or Samsung. And as far as adding an android phone without a datapack just by doing this think again. As Verizon will automatically add the data on there as soon as any smart phone ESN is activated on a line.

Love the Show, RJF


Hey Buzz Crew,

I'm listening to episode 1403, Rafe stated that if he could talk on his mobile phone and surf the Internet while doing so, he would switch to Verizon. Does this mean he's going to switch to Sprint's 4G service? I own a Sprint EVO and live in Brandon (Tampa), FL which is a 4G area. I can surf and talk on the phone (only while on 4G) without any problem, I can voice dial, dictate text messages and even use voice commands to find directions on my built in, free navigation software, Google Navigate. Eat that AT&T/iPhone!!

Luv da show

Another Sprint customer...
