    Despite being very happy with my DroidX, I want this phone. Though I don't need much more than what my DX is offering me right now, the techie in me wants the latest and greatest. You never know, if the demand for the DX stays strong, maybe I'll ebay it and but this one. Or, I'll just keep my DX since money is tight for most everyone and I don't need to upgrade, I just want to =P.

    I could have sworn VZW said they would have at least a few LTE devices in Q4, and one would probably be a handset.

    I want to see the Stats for this phone. I have not heard anything about HDMI or 720P.

    They will have a few LTE devices this year. One of them is the Samsung tablet. They will not have any LTE phones until 2011. This phone might not even be coming till Q2 2011.

    Actually if you look good at that ad it's actually 16Hz. dancedroid

    I am looking for a Dual Core with 4.3" LED, 8-16GB on board with MicroSD, Physical Keyboard, 4G, 8-10MP Camera, HD Recording & Front-Facing Camera. Am I asking for too much?

    I don't think so, but it's starting to look like there is a bit of a game going on with adding one feature but not another, or adding two features and dropping one. Undoubtedly all in the name of getting tech hungry consumers to upgrade every year or every 6 months.

    I'm going to write-off stuff like front facing camera and HDMI out as nice to have but not something I'd really use. A better camera would be nice, even HD recording.

    Now, an HDMI out that I can hook into a 21" monitor for surfing is a neat idea, but I thought the current HDMI out was only for pics and recorded video?

    I feel like they could come out with all of this in a superphone, but then you don't have any real reason to upgrade for a long, long time. And that's probably why we won't see a phone with EVERYTHING we want for a good while.

    I haven't looked at the roadmap in a while, but i remember the samsung fascinate wasn't on it. there are many phones that were not mentioned on that so-called roadmap.

    I also heard that if you see a phone leaked, it will be out in ~3-4 months. not sure how accurate this is though, and i'm too lazy to research this.

    I thought we'd see an LTE phone late this year, but stand corrected. I did see where VZW's CEO promised 5 LTE handsets by May 2011....I'm thinking it will be earlier than that, maybe March when we see the first?

    I don't think this is the HTC Merge. I remember the pictures of the Merge having a slider.

    1. Just because it has a front facing camera doesn't mean it'll be 4g. There are already phones out with front facing cameras without 4g, like the iPhone 4.

    2. This phone is coming anywherr between Nov-Jan

    And Im leaning towards this not being the merge either, because the merge I saw was maroon and like DroidXpert said, it had a slider.

    But it was rumored that HTC would release a LTE phone by years end, and vzw is testing LTE in some markets so it really isnt that far fetched. Im guessing this phone will be 1.3 ghz or higher, but just a guess.

    Theres gonna be other high end handsets before the years over, some Im sure we havent even heard of yet.

    Ima wait for it as well, if it turns out not to be what its cracked out to be, by then we will know if any other devices that are soon to be released are indeed better.

    I am hearing maybe 1.3 to 1.5 and im not sure of the name yet, but I can tell you. If it holds that look (colors and all) I will be all in on it. Then HTC will have a seriously popular device too

    Yea, you really cant beat a brushed steel look... I just wished it had a slider. But, Im still very happy with my droid 1 and am not up for an upgrade till next Nov. By then Im sure Cray will have a 200ghz phone with a front facing 1080 3D camera and built in kegmeister :)dancedroid

    Oh, and at the risk of looking stupid, is that silver strip on the back/bottom of the phone the kickstand?

    Nexus Two! I am absolutely 100% positive about this! And even if it isn't, I would still love to get this!
