ll good phones must be succeeded by a similar-sounding phone...but what's this Targa (pictured above)? A high-end Android phone with 4G support? Whatever it is, it's making the leaked Droid X 2 and Droid 3 look almost boring.

The Droid 3 is said to have a slide-out keyboard (though it's not pictured in the below leaked snap), with the Droid X 2 using a qHD screen and running on a dual-core processor. Unlike the Targa, both of these phones will lack 4G connectivity. There is one rather interesting feature worth noting on the Targa—did you spot that fat upper back? We presume it's for the camera—a 13MP one, it's rumored, but that's quite a hunchback it's got.

Also suggested by the grainy pics is a forward-facing camera; a HDMI output and capacitive buttons. This is definitely a phone worth watching out for, by the looks of things. [HowardForums Targa, Howard Forums Droid X2 and Howard Forums Droid 3 via PhoneArena]

Just another Android phone . . . Except for us gadget geeks, I feel as though the Android phone market is saturated with models. An average phone shopper is bound to just get the cheapest phone that'll give them a keyboard and some bells and whistles. Droid this, HTC that, Targa who . . . Everyone wants a piece of the "Apple" pie and thus, has to release multiple versions of cheap imitations to fill in where someone doesn't want an iPhone.

I love gadgets as much as the next guy, but this morning when I was glancing over Gizmodo, I realized that it has all just become static. I swear it seems like every manufacturer comes out with a new model every few months, and the are all beginning to look the same to me. I just pass on by, without even looking at what they offer.

I love my iPhone, but it doesn't quite do everything I want it to do. In order to get that, maybe I need an Android phone? But, you know what, I find them all to be plastic attention hounds that seem to be jumping up and down with one or two features that try to differentiate them from the others. In order to find one that I feel would be adequate, would require exhaustive research and careful consideration. And, quite frankly, at the end of the day, it's just a phone, and I don't really care that much to invest time into it.

It might sound mindless and sad, but I don't mind only having one iPhone to pick from. Yeah, the home screen sucks. App management needs a shot in the arm, and don't get me started on multitasking! But, all in all, it just works, and it does so better than anything I've seen. It doesn't creak in my hands like it's going to fall apart, it's nice to hold and use, and my whole family stays connected with them.
