HTC Rezound may be unveiled November 3rd
We've been waiting patiently for HTC to officially announce the Rezound (aka the HTC Vigor, aka the HTC Incredible HD), and it's looking more like we won't have to wait too much longer. HTC has sent around notices to the press that it will be hosting an event on November 3rd in New York City, and the rumor is that event will be for the announcement of the Rezound. 

The timing of it all makes the most sense, as we've seen a couple of different leaked documents from Verizon which suggest the Rezound will be released on November 10th. And, given that the Rezound will be HTC's flagship device on Verizon, going head-to-head with the Motorola DROID RAZR and Samsung Galaxy Nexus, it seems most likely that it will be the main topic for the event. 

Just a few days ago, we saw a leaked press shot of the Rezound, and if the specs match up with the rumors, this will be a beast of a device that could rival any of the top shelf handsets on the market. 

We'll be covering the event next Thursday at 3PM, and we'll have more updates as they happen.

I don't see what will make this attractive. Sense is pretty bad, HTC handsets don't feel good in the hand compared to motorola and it doesn't have ICS. Oh and throw in a S3 and you have a very unattractive phone to me.

A good portion of people love sense and feel it may be the only overlay UI that actually adds to the Android experience. It will have beats audio, which will give it a selling point that other devices really do not have: a music centered experience for those who use their phones as a MP3 style-device. HTC has an extremely loyal following and have a great rep for quality and durability in their phones. And really, I can count on one finger the number of devices that will be released with ICS. I think this has a fighting chance to be a real decent seller.

HTC has made Sense far too integrated into Android. that's been their greatest downfall as of late. after Sense 2.1 i thought HTC should have just made their own OS.

wow at all you HTC fanboys...you know it's true or at least you will know it is after half of 2012 is over and you still don't have ICS on your Sensation or EVO 3D.

Sense has been a boon for HTC, it set their phones apart from the rest of the Android crowd and reviewers consistently praised it as the best skin. The problem is that ICS is good enough stock that Sense won't be needed anymore.

it's not good enough to justify it's terrible updating pace and the Android experience is so far removed and the phones are so bogged down that they should do like i said and make their own OS and lighten up Sense on Android. kind of like what Samsung did with Bada.

Some people like Sense, some don't. I don't. While Beats is definitely better than the basic TI DAC, it's far from turning it into a Wolfson DAC. The first Samsung Galaxy S phone has the best audio DAC in any current smartphone, hands down. I'd also agree that the Qualcomm chipset is the weakest of the newly released (or soon to be) phones. IMO, the Nexus would be the phone that'd I get.

As for me HTC has blown it. Released the Thunderbolt and was probably one of the worse phones i have ev er had. GB skipped..no foreseen update in site or mentioned of...Horrible device...only diff is dual core and bigger processor and beats..just dont see this as 300 phone with razr and nexus approaching...plus every htc phone looks the same no matter no matter which carrier....razr..bionic..d3..photon..atrix...do not resemble that much...but you can tell a htc a mile away...only my take for htc let down and co tinued letdown with the tb. .when rezound launches..so long to the tb

GB wasn't skipped.. Loaded up just fine on my Thunderbolt Sept 29th. I've heard a few people having problems with the phone but for me.. the wife and I have had them since release and love them. Even Skype works great since GB allowed for Front Camera selection.

Heh... in the current world of Android, a 4.3" (16:9) screen is what we recommend for those with smaller hands.

It looks like a great device, it's just a few months too late. Once I saw the ICS interface, Sense became that much less...sensible. Still, I'd like to compare this and the Nexus side by side before I inevitably choose the Nexus.

Is anything coming to att from HTC? Holiday by chance???? why is verizon getting all the new phones???

I guess AT&T is still getting the Holiday, which is rumored to be their first LTE, right? It is supposed to be out before December last I heard. But no real gossip since they went live with their LTE network. I also remember the lowered spec Lead, but have seen nothing since the original report some months ago. I know they got the HTC Titan for the WP crowd in November sometime.

Really, when you stop to think of it, AT&T has been kinda quiet on the Android front and is kinda doubling down on WP devices. Really is strange.

thats a good point. I'm hoping the gsm version of Moto. razr will hit att. I mean, you can buy it and put a sim in it...why not offer it on contract!!!!! .....WP thing is odd, I was starting to like WP but after more looking it just wasnt for me...too limited like iOS for my tastes

I think HTC Sense is cool. It adds more useful functionalities than TouchWiz and Moto Blur. And it looks a lot better too.

My next phone is gonna be either SE or HTC with ICS out of the box. Which ever comes first will take my money.

Well this may be a dumb question....I've been searching all the sites , but cant find concrete answers.......
Does beats audio signify , ur only getting beats headphones with HTC phones, or will the speakers for HTC phones actually be Beats audio units as well ??????

cuz we all know htc speaker phone and audio is sub par, but i like all the new phones they (amaze, sensation xe) , but if beats deal only means ull only get earbuds, and no internal speakers , im prob gonna pass.....i would love to blast pandora or my music out off some kick ass speaker

I already seen the press shots that are leaked. As expected, red lit buttons, a nice black finish. As for audio, comes with the beats headphones, not sure what kind of wattage. I assume since its a cell phone, probably 100-300 watt without headphones, being used as a tiny boom box.

highest watt stereo system that I have heard is a 1000 watt in a Mercedes.
