    The Rezound will get new life with Jelly Bean. They are really close to having ICS run vanilla Android without a hitch, and jelly bean supposedly already addresses some issues they have.

    But I've been running the same rom for months and months without barely an issue. No longer do I waste time tweaking and flashing roms trying to squeeze every last bit of power out. And I don't mind sense - with the senseless rom I'm running it really isn't even noticeable, and I actually like some of the HTC widgets.

    Anyway, until you give me a phone that's actually powerful enough to dual-boot Windows and run something more than a simple spreadsheet I don't see a need for an upgrade. You'll get my attention when you have something that I can leave my laptop at home and just plug-in a monitor and keyboard to my phone and not skip a beat.

    You read my mind or I read yours either way HTC Rezound just seem a prefect phone. I have had issues with it, but that was all apps side. I'm also rooted which has had some side effects but that's the rooted issues. Minor and not caring to fix them due to they never really show up. Stock / Rooted.. loving me some HTC... Wife updated and loves the new interface and OS..

    Nice to see HTC dropping beats. All they need to do now is partner with a proper audio equipment company and work on battery life. I'd personally love to see UE or Audio Technica play a part in smartphone audio so people really listen properly and safely rather than just hear some rapper screaming away at 100dB.

    Breakfast beats worrying.

    Well guys, check this out.
    UPDATE: A company spokesperson said, “HTC doesn’t comment on rumors and speculation.”


    UPDATE 2: A change of heart: “HTC remains strongly committed to Beats Audio and including their innovation in our devices,” HTC said in an emailed statement. “Any rumor of HTC no longer integrating Beats Audio into our devices is categorically false.”

    one president said no new taxes, and promptly gave us new taxes. another president said he didn't have "relations" with that woman, which turned out to be a smoking load of cigar BS.

    If the most powerful man in the world can lie, then so can a podunk company trying to save some market share.

    So now I'm wondering if the price drop rumor was wrong too. I hope not. They need to do something to jump start things.

    And remember politicians don't lie...they embellish the truth.
