Will it be the first quad-core smartphone to reach the market? Regardless of whether it is the first, second or third such model, the HTC Edge brings some sizzling hot specs to the table including the 4.7 inch display that is now expected to be Super LCD 2 with optimal lamination that makes the display as clear as Retina display...

the others are not apart of the original lineage. if that's how it worked we'd be expecting the Droid 12 soon than the Droid 4.

what do you expect?
Galaxy Nexus is going to release in this year.
It's gonna be at least 5 months old phone when HTC Edge releases. If HTC's Edge isn't better than a 5 months old reference phone then i would be a shame of HTC.
Plus when Edge releases, im pretty sure other manufacturers release Tegra 3 equipped phones as well. Just HTC did after LG released Optimus x2(Tegra2), which wasn't that successful.
and im afraid HTC is following the steps of LG here.

This is the specification level that Apple is going to have to compete with on the iPhone 5.
Nothing like competition to spur innovation....

What can you do with a quadcore processor on a small screen, on a tablet, this would be killer, just not for a phone... unless..... Adobe releases indesign, photoshop, ect and Microsoft releases new products for phones on quadcore devices. Because right now, Microsoft office works fine on my 1ghz processor samsung focus

it's same resolution as a tablet mate. What is it for? What else? Gaming. You cant have developers make nice looking games if there is no hardware to support it.

There isn't no Retina. Only LG IPS LCD.
In fact, since Samsung gonna buy all share of S-LCD, which is initally a joint venture of Samsung&Sony from Sony.
It's gonna be just Samsung vs LG.

Only 1800mAH? Jesus... I hope that thing is optimized to all hell. I'm terrified to see what our battery life will be like on phones next year if we keep seeing batteries under 2000.

quad core doesn't mean more power usage, in fact it increases power efficiency because most of the time those cores will be idle and the lesser core will do most of the common tasks.

Yes...5th core is something like little brother taking care of standby mode or that kind of tasks.
