    If I had to name my greatest strength, I guess it would be my humility. Greatest weakness, it's possible that I'm a little too awesome.

    Wonder if they will produce an AT&T version like they did for the N1.

    What a disappointment indeed. No SD card slot, no 4G, no dual core processor, and judging by this I'll assume the GPU isn't an upgrade from the Galaxy S. Lackluster unveiling indeed. What is the point in upgrading to this? Why did they even make this phone?

    This is coming from a happy N1 user. I just really expected more out of a successor.
