In terms of what I might want to do on a smartphone in the near future I think what's coming in a few months should be just fine. At some point (sooner rather than later) it becomes overkill and a phone is perfectly capable but maybe just a little slower. LTE is the technological leap here - apps and the OS haven't made even the stock D1 truly obsolete yet. Obsolescence gets thrown around liberally, and incorrectly. Now when Vista came out, that DID make some older PC's obsolete because they didn't have the hardware to run it, but actually those PC's continued to work just fine because other than security concerns there's really not a need to upgrade the OS.

    Then in 18-24 months the truly beastly laptop/tablet replacement cells should be out in force.
    It would be amazing if we could make our own custom phones. Id have at least a grand into the thing.

    That's what I'm thinking here, these first generation Tegra 2 probably won't run nearly as efficient as the next way of processors like the Tegra 3. The same can be said about the Tegra 4 not running as effiently as the next generation of Tegra or equivalent processors. First generation technological leaps in my opinion generally don't measure up to expectations.

    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.

    Wow... Looks like I might be keeping my Droid a little longer than I had expected.

    The more one thinks about it it may be better to hold off on the T2s for a few months. As people mentioned before a lot of the software wont be able to take advantage of both of the cores for a little while and its a brand new technology so of course its going to be slightly buggy.

    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.

    Replace the D1 keyboard with a honking big battery and we'd get some serious mileage out of a single charge.

    In all seriousness, the 1400mah battery is pretty small. They should be able to work 2 into a phone, especially if there's no physical keyboard

    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.

    But it's a mobile phone, 5-6 hours of continuous use like that on a battery isn't really intended use. They aren't laptop replacements, and there aren't many laptops (even with extended batteries) that will get you more than 5-6 hours.

    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.
