    That was my favorite before the iPhone. I paid a whopping $600 for it and thought I was the coolest person in all of New York, LOL! :p

    I like the look but I don't see how they can call it the thinnest phone with a huge camera hump on the back. Is it LTE?

    Edit: Just saw the LTE slide. Looks like the thinnest LTE phone yet.

    Looks like a rather amazing phone... although the screen is too big, seriously.

    LTE confirmed. That is an impressively small device considering the tech inside.

    I must admit, I'd probably buy one of the competitors' phones if Apple licensed iOS to them. But since they wont, I'm probably going to be hooked onto the iOS devices for a while.

    Ugly Phone. Screen is too large. Phone is too large. I don't care about thinness I care about usability. The iPod Nano knockoff they demo'd as well is full of Lulz.

    I would be very careful buying any Android phone from Motorola. They have a history of not supporting their devices very well with upgrades. If you want an Android device, there are better choices.

    Likewise. Android simply kills it for me.

    Maybe its just me, but that comparison picture makes me appreciate the form factor of my 4s even more.

    Ha ha are you kidding me ? Man it took them over 7 months to update there droid x to update it, my friend end up getting something else, HTC has a better record for upgrades and Motorola has better record for build quality, it looks nice a 4" inch qHD will be better since it will attract more people but I'm no getting it I hate those humps on the back and im happy with my 4S anyways

    Is Apple the only one who can innovate? Motorola ACTV is a blatant rip-off of the iPod Nano, wth are Motorola engineers doing?

    Well Motorola took apples chance to capitalize on the watch. iPod nano was first but iPod nano doesn't have bluetooth you can't workout with a headphone wire attached to your wrist.

    That new MotoACTV watch is awesome! Apple really needs to do something with the Nano because Moto did it right.

    If you are on Verizon and you live in a 4G area or an area that will soon be 4G LTE I'd say the new RAZR would be a better buy then the 3G only iPhone 4S. The thing looks sweet, all stainless steel and kevlar and has a beautiful large display. They also claim it is the thinnest smartphone ever. I was following the live thread over at bgr.com and it appears battery life is pretty good as well. I wonder what version of Android this will ship with?

    Well I understand that some people may value Siri more then 4G LTE, a larger display, better overall specs, and a tougher more robust case design, but I'd say the other features look more appealing to me.

    Really? Does anyone else think that the MotoACTV will be pulled from the market within 6 months. Why? Because it's not an iPod. How many other companies, besides Apple, have successfully entered the mini .MP3 player space? I don't care how many bells and whistles you tack on to a product like this, if it's not an iPod, it'll sit on store shelves.
