    Looks to me that if VZW is not getting it, then it might be a good time to switch to Sprint. I am tired of $135 a month phone bills, when Sprint charges $79 for the same plan that I have with VZW. The fact that Sprint is also getting one of the coolest Android phones to ever hit the market, might be enough to make me jump ship.

    Lol, I was typing in the car and my dad was swerving. Some dumb cop walked into the middle of the street and just stopped, my dad was a foot away from him and he just stood there.
    I meant to say, The word liar never came out of my mouth. If you really think a pentile screen is better then you're just fooling yourself

    4.5 inch screen? Really come one too big. I want a phone, if I wanted a tablet Id buy a tablet. As far as Im concerned 4.3 is the upper limit for me and thats even pushing it. Replacing an already big phone with an even bigger one is not a replacement. The only way it would be ok is if they could basically make the whole front screen and have the bigger screen without making the phone any bigger.

    From what I've been hearing, most phones that pass the 4.3 mark are due to more utilization of the face of the phone and not a bigger overall device. Especially with the ICS phones because they can eliminate the capacitive buttons and pull the screen down even farther.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing what manufacturers take advantage of ICS to make the screen larger and reduce the size of the device.

    First one to do that gets my vote. Device improvements are what we need right now, bigger is not better anymore, it's just bigger.

    This has to come with increased battery management too. I know a bigger phone now usually means a bigger battery but if you keep the form the same size as the 4.3" phones of today and make the screen larger, the battery will suffer.

    Not stupid at all. It's the operating system that will be on future android devices, it's been given the name Ice Cream Sandwich.

    Lol, of course it is. Dont know for whatever reason I was thinking maybe it was some new hardware thing.

    so why or how does ICS allow them to ditch the buttons?

    Well its a mixture of HONEYCOMB AND GINGERBREAD and as we know, honeycomb haves the home,back,search,and menu buttons as icons on the screen not as actual buttons. Or capacitive buttons. So therefore, ics will most likely have the same ability

    Hence why I said Device Improvements must be the priority.

    In terms of what? We already know Moto can pull off great battery life and performance in their phones.
