Good call out. I find it almost unacceptable for new phones to still be launching with 2.2. I wonder if they're having issues with implementing it on the phones...
I'm the opposite. I'm looking for 4G as well as FFC.

Leaving your GPS on drains battery.
Truth is: GPS is only used when you open an application that requires it. You can leave GPS toggled on at all times.
Oh man, that capacitative keyboard looks cool in a flashy image, but I would probably throw the phone against the wall in a fit of rage were it ever implemented. Actually no, because I wouldn't buy it... I had an old samsung with buttons like that (thankfully only call/end) and it was simply horrendous. They'd get stuck all the time, wouldn't respond properly, no tactile feeback. Physical buttons must remain physical, otherwise it's better to simply use a rotatable and configurable on-screen keyboard.
The only advantage I can see with this one is getting the Tegra 2 while still being able to hold on to all of your current accessories and cases. Doesn't bring much else to the table. I can;t see too many people pick this one over the Bionic other than on looks alone.
And word 'round the campfire is it will not be LTE.
My only question is why does 3G or LTE have to be a debate....If the LTE is backward compatible then VZW should figure out a way to sell every phone with that capability. I don't know how much it changes the cost, but it just seems really stupid for them to be chopping up their market like this - (A) is the phone you want but it's not LTE, (B) is LTE but it doesn't have a keyboard or whatnot.
