There is always a whiz-bang phone on the horizon that's better, cheaper, faster, and uses less power with more battery life. But there's also the possibility of delays and problems with all new phones until the bugs are worked out.
After my remaining 22 months are done with my X, I'll get a new phone that will blow away anything you get in the next six months. And six months from then, you'll get one that will be even better than my new one.
That's just the nature of today's technology.
