    Interesting. Looks just like the rumored phone in this topic. Perhaps they'll both have sliders? Should be good for those wanting a touch pro 2 style keyboard.

    Could this be the first of the dual core processors? They were supposed to start showing up by the end of 2010. And knowing that there was supposed to be a leap in tech made me wait.

    It's been a challenge but I'm glad I haven't upgraded for just this reason.

    Yea it might have dual processors. Idk but I think it might.

    Only reason im not getting it is because its not a 4G phone. I'll wait till 2011 for dual core LTE phones.

    It is too early to tell what it is or isnt. And look at sprint, they have 4g phones but maybe some areas have 4g towers, heck they have not finished building all the 3g towers. I am no rush to get an LTE phone because about time they get it all ready it will be time for me to buy a new device anyway.

    Im sure Verizon might have some LTE towers out but they're only releasing LTE tablets and broadband cards this year. The phones wont be here till 2011.

    Also Sprint might switch from WiMax to LTE for obvious reasons.

    The phone looks nice though. Only concern is that HTC doesn't care about battery life. I had the Evo and now the Incredible and battery life on those aren't as long as my X's and Droid's.

    Well I am going back and forth with myself whether to wait for this or get the x. One minute im waiting, next Ima get the x.

    Patience is a virtue so I am tring to lean on patience. Ill give up a lil battery life for dual core.

    There's gonna be a lot more high end HTC and Moto phones coming out in the future. Reason why I upgraded a line for the X and I'll upgrade to an LTE phone in 2011.

    I dont think this is a slider. Look at the power button. And this is an Android phone. U can see the 4 square, 1 white button on this one.

    I hope this won't be released too late in this year, does anybody know or have idea when it'll be released? my upgrade is soon and this looks really nice, but I don't want to wait till december.

    The reason I hope it isn't released too soon is that it increases the chance that it'll have Gingerbread on it. Also, I know there are those that say this won't be LTE but we have no release date for this device. It could very well be Q1 '11. Does anyone know where the LTE radio in MetroPCS' feature phone is coming from?

    Ok I just checked the Verizon roadmap again and this isn't even on it. This phone is definitely not coming till at least winter but if comes after January 2011 then it'll probably be an Lte phone.

    Its gonna be a long wait for those who are waiting.
