Seems like Verizon is making a few big moves, they also/might get the 1st android powered moto called Calgary. If anything, I would like to see more phones with android.

I don't see how Verizon or Microsoft can really do much anymore. I've been a Verizon customer for a while and a smart phone owner for just as long. The current Windows mobile phones out right now can do just as much as any iPhone and more in my opinion. I currently have a XV6800 and I can do so much with it without having to buy all the "apps" separately.

this is a good idea actually, if they can get a better windows mobile out for entertainment rather than business.
