    I'll wait for LTE because I can't justify to myself buying a phone at this point in time not LTE capable...

    Man I can't stand AT&T, their service is horrible. Everytime I call my friends that have AT&T 2 out of 3 times I call them their call gets dropped. I think since AT&T has iPhone Verizon should get this first. I really don't want to wait until Q1 to get this so it looks like I have to hope that the HTC Incredible HD comes out when predicted next month.

    updated OP with more rumor


    "several tipsters have said it looks like a smaller version of the Droid X with the addition of a front-facing camera" "it will be powered by NVIDIA dual-core 1 GHz Tegra 2"

    Yeah my upgrade is in 2011. This might be my upgrade. Like someone else mentioned, next phone will be lte. So hopefully LTE gets rolled out at a decent pace.

    so with all the newest info coming in it's probably a pretty safe bet to say the screen will be 4". Which is the sweet spot in my opinion. Not too big and not too small. Just my personal thoughts.

    Your experience is very different from mine. When I switched to AT&T to get an iPhone I dropped more calls in seven months than I had the previous eight years with VZW.

    Even in Charlotte NC where their 3G is reported to be "excellent", I could not keep calls. The final event for me was sitting in Beaver Stadium (State College PA with "excellent" 3G) with all bars lit. I could not make a call, send or receive email or text. Yet the folks around me that had VZW were able. Even after I left the stadium the network was to overloaded to do anything.

    I've never had that bad of service with VZW in my travels.

    That should be AT&T's new tagline.

    AT&T - we're just as good as Verizon in some areas.

    I'm really looking forward to this phone... LTE, 4 inch screen, front facing camera, fast processor = all the things I am looking for in my next phone. Hopefully it won't be locked down, but with those specs and just a simple root for things like free tethering... idk if id really even care.

    The million dollar question : ) I'm honestly not sure and don't even have a good rumor to spread lol.

    Good to see you hanging in there Jon and waiting! I'm right here with you LOL.

    This looks to be my next device for sure. Motorola, Tegra 2, Dual core, LTE, 4" Screen whats to think about : )

    CK, you and I have always been on the same page about the 4" screen being the sweet spot. It's killing me but I am holding out for this one.

    As far as what's to think about ...... locked bootloader??? I've really grown to appreciate CM. Granted I can probably do 95% of what I want with root and some paid apps but still ............

    As much as I agree with you and hate locked bootloaders if the devs can pull off root as well as the same/similar magic that they have with the DX and D2 as far as ROMs and now O/C'ing I will be happy. REALLY REALLY happy. I just want me a Cortex A9 phone!

    4" screen is the sweet spot. 4.3" is a lil big IMO and the 3.7" looks miniature next to the 4.3".

    This. I believe it probably WOULD have come to VZW first if LTE was already widespread. The good news here is that if there are any issues with the initial AT&T launch device; hopefully they will be ironed out in the VZW version. At this point, it would make little sense to release it on VZW as a EV-DO Rev. A device.

    yeah locked bootloader is something I'm willing to sacrifice at this point. It's a tough call no doubt but at some point I knew there would come a defining moment bootloader/great device? bootloader/great device?

    I think the GREAT device has FINALLY come
