    Aside from sporting a 4.3-inch 720p HD display, 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, and 1GB of RAM, the HTC Vigor could blast some serious bass if new rumors pan out. Following HTC’s acquisition, the speaker technology found in Beats by Dre headphones will find a home in future Android handsets from the manufacturer. The HTC Vigor could be among the first, even sporting Beats branding on the case (which is said to resemble the HTC Thunderbolt without the kickstand). The reported Gingerbread handset will run a next-gen version of HTC Sense when it launches, though the specifics on when that will be remain a closely guarded secret.

    I can't wait for this. I use my phone's speaker (Droid Charge) at work for music almost everyday. Hate on Beats all you want but it'll definitely be better than our speakers we have now.

    I think if they wanted better speakers and more bass they should have bought Jawbone, my Jambox puts out amazing sound for it's size.

    No big deal with Beats; I have it on my HP laptop and I am not impressed.

    But I do need something other than a Motorola to replace my Droid X in a few months, and the specs are interesting. Thanks to Motorola, GB and the fact that Motorola has remained silent about the problems on the X and GB; I will not get another motorola product.

    Beats is overrated. You can buy headphones that sound just as good for less money.
    Buying a pair of Beats is like buying a Mac. Yes, it's good, but you can get something just as good for a lot less money. It's mostly just marketing.

    Macs are of quality at least that will last years. Beats? They break in-store. (Look at a best buy for example)

    Some are missing the point. If I want to watch some qucik netflix with amazing sound, this would be my ticket.

    5.1 surround would be amazing, not just a beats equipped single speaker htc phone.

    Really don't care about the Beats side, but the rest of the specs sure have my attention. A good speaker would be a nice addition.

    I couldnt care less about this beats part of the phone.

    Specs look nice. Would rather the nexus prime though.

    This is the first phone to really sound like it will be enough for Verizon to take my money.

    The specs themselves are awesome. Beats aren't top of the lines, but they are an A-. It sure beats what HTC has now.

    This will not hurt one bit.

    Now THIS looks like a flagship phone.
    -16GB internal memory
    -1.5Ghz Dual-Core Qualcomm processor
    -720x1280 (HD) Res
    -1GB of RAM
    -Sense 3.5
    -Gingerbread 2.3.4 out of the box
    -2MP FFC and 8MP BF
    -Adreno 220 GPU
    +the new HTC unlocked bootloader policy....

    I don't know about all of you but the thunderbolt was my dream phone...however, THE VIGOR is the one after that:)
