that means you can have as many microsd cards as you want so "technically" its unlimited but that is misleading.

Thanks... I've tried the Touch twice now but I just prefer some type of keypad. I hope Sprint gets the Dual.

It would be nice if they got the Dual, but I know a lot of people with the Touch that would be upset. I wouldn't mind getting the Dual to have the slide out keyboard. I actually liked that on my Mogul. But I think as stated above I bet some new HTC phones will be out and much better by the time they would think to release the Dual.

Why would folks with the touch be upset? Personally I like the soft keyboard on the touch but I know a few people that dont so that would give everyone another option. I like the dual but wouldn't see myself upgrading. Looks like the only difference would be the keypad.

this is hilarious, does any one have a link to the fcc document proving the dual is coming to sprint? without this no phone will be "coming to sprint"

I have the European Touch Dual sitting on my desk (with an ATT sim in it) and the funny thing for me is after using the Sprint Touch, I find myself not sliding the keyboard as often as I thought I would. I guess I got used to the onscreen keyboard and I find it faster to just use that then slide the screen up every time I want to type an email or make a call.

It is amazing how small the Touch Dual is, it is narrower then the Sprint Touch and just a little bit thicker and longer....

Mashie, how does the dual compare to the verizon voyager size wise (if you have seen one)?

ok great question. I Had a Voyger here for a little but but had to send it back so I can't do any comparison pics. But.. The Voyager is a nice little device. I really like the dual hinge idea. Size wise, the Touch Dual is a little longer, the Voyager is a little wider and they are both about the same thickness.

The wierd thing with the Voygaer (same with the old Moto MPx) is that when you opent he phone in flip mode, you are using keys on the QWERTY to dial that are fairly high up in the keyboard. I would have prefered keys closer to the bottom of the keyboard/phone which would make for easier dialing.

interesting, i like the touch so much because it is thin. i cant get over bulky cell phones in today's world, it was fine for the analog days.

Thats how I think I would handle the Dual as well. I have gotten quite quick using the stock onscreen keypads. Believe it or not I think I am better texting on the touch than I was on a Q9.

I'm still trying to get used to the touchscreen keyboard fully. So I wouldn't mind having both, but maybe when I've had my Touch a little longer I'll get more used to the touch keys.
