Not only did the HTC DROID DNA visit the FCC, but there is now speculation that the device will launch on December 6th; this will certainly be a beastly model witrh a quad-core 1.5 GHz processor and 2GB of RAM on board to go with that 5 inch 1080p screen...

I never said it was proper English, I said it was a word. My point still stands on the fact that your original statement, saying "irregardless" wasn't a word, is wrong.

Y U USE WORN OUT AND STUPID INTERNET SAYINGS BRO?

Well I work for Verizon corporate and I had the device in my hand. I can tell you it is 16GB internal storage and no SD slot and 2500mah battery Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and Sense 4+ as they are calling it. The Sim card slot is on the top of the device. The screen is mind blowing don't know how I can read all these articles saying that 1080p on a phone won't make a difference it does. Also it is fast the s4 quad core is blazing fast and google now works well also.

If that is true then I apologize, and will have to rethink buying this device, as I need more than 16GB of storage. Plus, I like the security of knowing that if my phone fries for some reason, my pictures etc are still safe on my microSD card.

Can't tell you how many customers I've had with a fried phone and no microSD card get very upset that they have lost their pictures, and I don't want to be one of those people......

I would have to rethink buying the DNA also. 16 GB is not enough storage for me. Even if it were enough storage, I too am hesitant to rely on the phone's internal storage. Moreover, accessing on-line storage (assuming it's available) will tax data allotment. Well, I guess I will have to wait and see...

The data allotment doesn't affect me since I have unlimited data and will buy a phone at retail(no discount for agent reps on phones that amounts to anything). It's also not just pictures but music. I've got my iTunes sync'd to my Rezound(iSyncr app ftw) and other music I've downloaded and I'd rather not have to replace it.

As I've said before, I've got a 32GB microSD card filled with movies, music, and pictures, and actually have a need for the card that the dropbox storage just can't cover.

that's why unlimited data is awesome

Unlimited data is awesome. But I cannot afford to pay $600 for a mobile phone. So I will lose unlimited data when I upgrade. Of course I could get one from eBay, but I couldn't get the latest releases. So when I upgrade to the DNA, Note 2 or Optimus Blaze (A guy can hope it is an option, yes?) I will lose unlimited data.

Don't worry man, I'm all about tech, and right now, Android has the best tech imo. WP8 could be awesome, and Apple is always capable of making really cool stuff, IF they could gtfo of the courtroom lol.

I only have one question.

Where, is Harvy Dent....

Just kidding. I'm actually curious on what the battery capacity is with all these "beastly" features. Because they're useless if the phone doesn't last.

Current speculation is a 2500mah battery, which isn't bad. Hopefully this is the case, b/c otherwise it will have the 2020mah battery the J Butterfly does in Japan, which is not so nice.....

hopefully HTC pulls it off with this one. Can't wait to see how it does when I head to the Local Verizon to drool upon it! Not to mention after this badboy launches It'll be nice to see what the competition within android fires back with!

The jury is still out on that 2500mAh battery, it still seems too paltry for a phone this size and packing such a high density LCD. I seriously hope that S4 Pro is a power miser and that Super LCD screen doesn't use much power for this thing to last anywhere near 8 hours of regular usage, which is garbage on a phone this big. Big batteries are a must, Motorola has shown that this is key, even the Note II comes with a 3100mAh battery, why HTC why would you shoot your greatest phone by spec standards in the foot before it even gets out of the gate?

I swear it's like some Android manufacturers go to lunch on some part of the decision making when it comes to their kick ass products. Motorola tends to do that when it comes to cameras, HTC does it with measly batteries, Samsung does it when it comes to having sturdy outer shells...what the hell is wrong with these guys?

I got to use this device tonight at a VZW quarterly kickoff....it's badass! It's VERY light and considering its a 5" screen, it's easy to use with one hand. Also saw the Note 2 (real big), the HTC 8x and Lumnia 822 which got me thinking about given MS a shot, but when I saw the DNA I was sold. The screen is unreal, the OS is snappy and the camera was impressive. I got caught trying to snap a photo of it. The rep wasn't too happy with me...to put it mildly. We have some nice devices coming to the line up, but the DNA is a standout fo sho!!

I was there also it was an amazing phone I was sold on the Note 2 until I played with the DNA and now I want that phone it is amazing looking.

Ugh.. now you've got me thinking.. Note II or the DNA???

I'm generally not all that impressed with HTC phones and their UI, though my wife LOVES them.

I was really impressed with my brother's Note II.. the size is BIG.. but its' great for web pages and the S-pen is awesome!

I'm not sure what to do now..

If you tried this phone, can i ask if you saw a microsd card slot? or did they not let you poke around that much?

I walked away from the Nokia table thinking "im gonna go for it", but then I held the DNA and quickly changed my mind.
