    We are going to write this one up as rumor folks. Pocketnow reports that a "trusted" source has informed them that the flagship device HTC Edge has gotten a name change. For unknown reasons the Edge is now going by the codename Endeavor. This is an unusual move for HTC and with MWC right around the corner what better way to generate some buzz.

    Specs remain the same and carrier release is still a mystery but this phone is packing a lot of heat.

    The Tegra 3 Quad Core clocked at 1.5GHZ is going to power this phone and it will sport a 4.7" "optically-laminated" 720p display all contained in a nice slender 10mm body.

    It should see an announcement next month at MWC with a release under the retail name of the Supreme. This is a very nice piece of equipment and it's sure to be a hot seller when it drops.

    Either a changed form factor or just a savvy PR move to generate buzz, imo :happy3:

    I like the looks of the front but the back would look much better if it was all the same color and texture.

    That looks pretty slick. Looks like a metal plate around the camera. It actually looks different from their typical "iphone 3" replicas.

    Not necessarily bud. Google has stated that ICS can function with the hard touch buttons.

    Texas Instruments was demoing OMAP 5 with ICS. It had capacitive buttons on the demo device. I dont get why ppl think if it has capacitive or hard buttons it wont run ICS...lol. I dont think Google is starting to limit choice in Android land that quick

    I'm almost certain that that device will ship with ICS.

    I know that ics will work with capacitive buttons...but why would a new device running pics have them? In would assume capacitive button function would be in place for phones that already have them. I just figured if it were cutting edge and new...running ics they would not have them possibly.

    Differentiation. Some devices will still use them, some won't. It's great that ICS added that functionality because now instead of the same old hardware designs we can have some choice.

    I'm sure there are other people out there that do not want the on-screen buttons besides myself. I'm also sure the manufacturers recognize this. Some people love convertibles, some people love a moon roof and some people just want a hardtop. There will be something for everyone.

    i personally love buttons on the screen. you can add what ever you want, change the look of them, change the color with what ever theme your running. It may just be a samsung design and not a ics design.
