    Each year, high school athletes have a day where they sign a letter of intent for which college they are going to commit. With android now evolving into more than just HTC and Motorola, and the fact that most of us are coming up on our 2 year we are not sure where to go.
    We will be updating this thread with the latest news from android news sources on the latest different products. We will also allow for people to weigh in how they feel, what concerns they have, and what questions they need answered. So get your pens ready........

    I have not committed yet but I must admit I am swaying toward an HTC product; from all the talks I have been having with motorola I do not feel confident in the next couple of products they are going to release. Having a device with blur and playing with people's HTC device with sense they are almost like night and day. Sense is polished and just add a ui to the device, blur is heavy and just weighs the device down. Now on the flip side motorola makes better hardware. Lg concerns me because I do not think it will have any development and samsung lost my vote based on how they are handling their updates. It will be interesting to see this all unfold. The Droid made motorola the king of android beating out the hero and the droid eris. Htc responded with the incredible and the evo which were a much better product than the droid 2 and droid x only because of blur. So for round 3 we will see if motorola can respond or will htc continue to hold the crown, but their is a possibility that a new comer could win the hearts of android users.

    HTC Inspire 4G Headed to AT&T on February 13 for $99


    On 02.01.11, In ATT, Inspire 4G, News, by Kellex
    [​IMG]
    Verizon and the HTC Thunderbolt better look out if this is the model that AT&T has planned going forward with their 4G devices. The HTC Inspire 4G which is essentially the exact same device as the TBolt, will launch February 13th for $99 on 2-year agreement. No, that’s not a type-o. The TBolt is expected to launch somewhere around $249, and while it runs on VZW’s LTE network, thats a pretty big difference in price. Nice work AT&T.
    HTC Inspire 4G Arrives for AT&T Customers on Feb. 13
    AT&T 4G Smartphone is the First of Many Planned for the Nation’s Fastest Mobile Broadband Network
    Key Facts

    • AT&T* will begin selling the HTC Inspire™ 4G on Feb. 13.
    • The first 4G mobile phone offered by AT&T, the HTC Inspire 4G is the first to run the Android 2.2 platform and AT&T Mobile Hotspot application.
    • The 4.3-inch super LCD display on the HTC Inspire 4G will be the largest in the AT&T portfolio, and the first to offer the next-generation HTC Sense experience.
    • HTC Inspire 4G will cost $99.99 after a two-year agreement beginning Feb. 13 in company owned retail stores and online at www.wireless.att.com.
    4G Portfolio
    AT&T is the leader in smartphones and expects to widen that lead in 2011. In January, AT&T committed to an industry-leading Android portfolio in the U.S. in 2011 and said it plans to offer two 4G smartphones in the first quarter. The HTC Inspire 4G is the first of more than 20 4G devices AT&T plans to deliver in 2011. AT&T has completed the deployment of HSPA+ to virtually 100 percent of its mobile broadband network, which enables 4G speeds when combined with Ethernet or fiber backhaul.
    HTC Inspire™ 4G
    The HTC Inspire™ 4G will be the first 4G smartphone in AT&T stores and will have the largest screen of any AT&T smartphone, with a 4.3-inch super LCD display, and will offer an 8-megapixel camera with HD video recording. Running on the Android 2.2 platform, the HTC Inspire 4G will be the first smartphone in the U.S. to feature the next-generation HTC Sense™ experience with cloud services. The HTC Inspire 4G will also be the first to introduce AT&T Mobile Hotspot service built into the smartphone, allowing users to connect additional Wi-Fi-enabled devices.
    Exclusively available to AT&T customers for $99.99 after a two-year agreement, the HTC Inspire 4G will include a 1 GHz processor, Dolby® Mobile and SRS WOW HD sound, and a premium, aluminum unibody design. HTC Inspire 4G comes preloaded with a Blockbuster and eReader application to keep users entertained on the go. For more information, visitwww.att.com/inspire4G.
    With the next-generation of HTC Sense, the HTC Inspire 4G offers even more ways to stay connected, including FriendStream™, which delivers Facebook, Twitter and Flickr updates in a consolidated view. The HTC Inspire 4G also offers customers the ability to pinpoint the location of a lost phone on a map and send a command to make the phone sound an alert – even while on “silent” mode – through the htcsense.com website. If needed, owners can also remotely wipe all of the phone’s data with a single command in addition to forwarding calls and text messages to a different number.
    Quotes
    “We are kicking off an exciting year for AT&T’s smartphone portfolio, and leading off with our first 4G phone,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, Devices, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. “With its iconic design, 4G speeds and awesome features, Inspire 4G is going to attract new customers and please existing AT&T subscribers.”
    “With a 4.3 inch screen, latest version of the HTC Sense experience and a sleek unibody aluminum design, the HTC Inspire 4G is the first true superphone to launch at under $100, bringing unparalleled power to more people than ever before,” said Jason Mackenzie, president of HTC Americas.

    AT&T offering 4G phones for cheap is nice. The fact that they don't have a 4G network might prove troublesome to those that think beyond the price they're paying for a device, though.

    Call me old skool, but I need a 4G device with a QWERTY keyboard. Until I see one, I'm perfectly happy with my Motorola Droid.

    Sorry, I forgot to mention that 4G device would have to actually have a 4G network to connect with...

    I was swaying towards the Thunderbolt but after seeing this $99 I dont know. AT&T though :/ I got used to VZW network. I guess it would depend on the pricing plan as well.

    ^Same hear. The fact that I might have to leave Verizon has opened up all kinds of possibilities for me.

    But after what I seen from the LG phone earlier....Moto might be losing a customer.

    I have an upgrade in April. I really want to wait for the Bionic, see how the dev community is with it. But, with all of the crap their putting on the devices (blur, sense, apps, etc etc etc), I may just go to an iPhone and have it dual boot Andy (did I just say iPhone :icon_eek:)... It's not like anyone is making money off of the OS like Windows is with theirs. That would truly be open-source, because I wouldn't have any of the big companies spying on me, ready to flip a switch when they want to put me back to stock and without root.

    So I'm going to go ahead and rant like almost everyone else.

    I'm on the big red and I'm not thrilled that the Atrix **cough cough** I mean Bionic is castrated to 512mb ram. While a gig of ram might seem a bit much RIGHT NOW, in a year? Year and a half? Where will the Bionic fall to stay in the ring... right now this is what I'm leaning towards myself but I'm not happy about the RAM drop.. it doesn't make sense but lately, when has Verizon made business sense?

    HTC... not a fan of HTC phones in general. At the start of this thread someone mentions that blur makes Moto phones seem 'heavy' while Sense doesn't....??? Care to explain that one to me? Moto Blur is what allowed the Droid 1 to out preform the Droid Incredible in graphics because Sense bogs the system down while blur doesn't.

    Having rooted the incredible, evo, droid 1, 2, global, and X I personally feel that the Droid brand is nicer to root. Doesn't mean much, but the hoops you have to jump through to root an HTC device seems out of this world. Doesn't really apply, just a HEY I LIKE Rooting Moto devices.

    Honestly, I don't know the we could throw LG Optimus into the ring, but personally, I don't think LG has proven itself as an android platform provider. The novel idea of a 3D phone is nice... but in truth, it's novel and will get old. The whole idea of why a dual core processor phones attract me is the battery life. The processors will split the work load and therefore run at lower mhz extending the life of the battery.... mean while, LG is creating an OS built to negate the whole premise.

    Ok.. sure, we all want better programs, better games, better graphics, and it is going to come at the price of the battery... but I think LG is jumping the gun. We need better battery tech before I'm willing to buy a device that won't make it through a work day without being charged 3 or 4 times.

    Kind of brings me back to Bionic and Thunderbolt. Thunderbolt or Bionic... These are my choices... I'm not comfortable with HTC... sooooooooo I'm gonna get a XOOM... Hahahahahahahaha

    The droid 1 do not have blur. I have the droid 2 and I am also able to see first hand what blur has done with the droid x. Now a vanilla rom will run better than any ui but sense is more polished and runs better than blur. Moto may get it together and make blur better and time will tell. That is the reason for this thread to keep adding news and bits and pieces that we find about different devices to help those looking to upgrade to find what choice is right for him/her.
