My biggest concern is battery life and these phones carrying 1900+ battery due to the the dual core processor as well as LTE service aren't making me feel any better.

this is exactly why i upgraded to the DroidX during christmas even though i knew the dual cores were coming out, id rather have the BEST of the current generation than a shakey "new" phone just because it has hype
What i'd rather see come out is better battery tech. You can add all the fancy bells and whistles to things you want, sooner or later you will reach the limit of what you can do with the current battery tech.
Resistance is futile.

I'll definitely agree that we need better battery tech. If I run my droid at 1 GHz constantly while the screen is on (and from 125-500 with the screen off) it will last maybe about 5 or 6 hours, which is pretty pathetic IMO.
I agree with you that better battery life is desired, but other than a long flight there aren't many places I would be using 5-6 hours continuously away from a power source. And the reality is, battery tech in general has been disappointing, whether it be laptops, electric cars, etc...
Like I said, take the keyboard off the D1 and you could put a big honking extended battery on there to create about the same size. But more than bulk and weight, I think the issue is such a large battery would push costs to a point where phones would be higher than the "sweet spot" mfrs think prices are at. I think a big part of why we aren't seeing a phone with the latest tech on everything is it will simply cost too much to sell well.
