Other oem should start using s615 and 2gb ram +16 gb internal in mid-range.
htc done a good job, now they just need to price it competitive.

I don't get why HTC has such a hard-on for thick bezels. Yuck.

I don't get why people have a hard on for thin bezels either. IMO it is a small price to pay for the Boomsound speakers, but as i said, it is only IMO.

Agreed, as much as I love small bezels on my tv/phone. If it comes down to it, I'd take front facing speakers over no bezels any day.
