Good point there. Thanks for the reply.

My thoughts: Why would you hand someone Pandora's box, tell them not to open it and walk away. Good news story, bad idea providing the link...
I think this phone has it's audience. Although I may not be inclined to purchase a flip phone, i suspect that there is a population of folks out there who would love to have the Android experience in a flip form factor with the large key pad. Sammy has the latitude to experiment either way, so why not?
What is the equivalent of 4 ultrapixels in megapixels?
send some Nexus 7 goodness my way, guys!
Deliver to me some Tegra goodness!
I would love the Nexus 7 so I could return my iPad2 to my employer and have the all around Android experience!
I agree. It has to sound pretty kick-ass at $149.00. $199.00 is just too much.
Sweet! I was recently at a conference and got to hear a woman from IBM who worked with Watson (the computer system that was featured on Jeopardy). The way that she explained Watson working is very very similar to the description given here. The difference is that Watson had to be completely self contained (no Internet access) for "fairness". Of course there are probably myriad other differences, but the concept is strikingly similar.
Looking forward to this...
Yessssss! Believe it or not, this is one of the things that I was hoping my next phone would have. I have the OG EVO 4G and I use the kick stand every day! As a matter of fact, it's on the kick stand right now!
I'm not worried so much about the two-tone thing. It's a phone, not a car. I wouldn't care if they made it gloss and matte striped on the back. The specs and the functionality are what I concern myself with. The lack of a kick stand may not have prevented me from buying the phone, but having it is a much appreciated bonus!
Finally. A phone for the photography enthusiast! Thank you, HTC!!!
I wonder if they'll add an LTE tax like they did when the Evo 4G came out. I wouldn't put it past them. Even though their prices are really competitive that "premium data charge" really pissed me off!
I'm definitely looking forward to this app. Not even 100% sure of what it does, but I have friends on the iOS version who love it. I want to see what all the buzz is about and I would love the opportunity to tout a better version on Android!
HTC - Sprint
Though Sprint has been a little slow to get on the LTE bus, I'm gonna stick it out with them. To me, it comes down to saving money and not having to worry about how much data i'm using. Any mobile, any time is the shiznit - meaning i can subscribe to a plan w/ 450 anytime minutes and not worry about overages.
As for a manufacturer, I've had an HTC phone every since I came to Android and i'm pretty much sold on Sense. I also love the kick stand on my EVO 4G. I just hope sprint gets a new HTC phone before i'm ready to upgrade. HTC for me.
As a photography enthusiast, this really piqued my interest. It is really disappointing that the actual phone specs are so low-end because camera quality is one of the major gripes that I have about smart phones. It could be that my Nikon D7000 has me jaded, but I think that a little more time effort and resources should be put into camera optics on these high end smart phones.
Honestly, i'm realistic and don't expect DSLR quality photos from my phone and the photos are actually quite decent when you capture images of still objects/people. Still, I'd like to see less of an emphasis on megapixels, more on lens quality and shutter speed to capture moving objects with much less blur. We use the cameras on our phones for spontaneous moments and often times that spontaneity comes in motion!
So so picture quality could be a side effect of the phone that I have (HTC EVO 4G) or it could be a pervasive issue with smart phones. Either way, I think all we have to do is wait long enough and smart phone camera optics wil begin to approach those of entry level DSLRs with kit lenses.
They sound like a pretty interesting bunch of accessories on the surface. I know they are brand spankin new, but i'd like to actually see them at work, at least in a demo vid, before rendering a decision.
Overall, I'm loving the direction in which things are moving with all of these Android "extras". Very exciting...
Tried the app. I love the interface, but I don't need another way to search the internet. The interoperability with certain apps is a cool feature though.
Merry Christmas to me?
