    Has absolutely nothing to do with the supposed iPhone rumors.

    It's releasing on AT&T first because the VZW version is an LTE global device.

    That's fine. Actually makes my decision to go with the HTC Incredible HD even easier now. Now if Miami's release info holds true!

    I was glad to see the Galaxy S line on all 4 carriers, and I'm glad to see more high end Android phones on other carriers.

    It only strengthens Android that much more for more carriers to have good, high end Android phones. Now hopefully AT&T wont try to gimp it....

    Since I'm on Verizon of course I woulda wanted it to be here first, but as long as it comes at all, its all good.

    This sounds like it could be worth the wait!

    Tablet-style as opposed to flip, clamshell, slider, etc. I'm guessing that's the coined term for a phone that is all screen (minimal buttons), and has no sliding / folding parts. So that would make the iPhone and incredible also "tablet-style". Not sure what a blackberry-style with the exposed keyboard is called.

    Any idea when this bad boy might drop on VZW? I'm guessing not before Q1 2011 but any more info? I have an upgrade on 12/4 and I am dying!

    Thank you CK for the info!

    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.
