The 1 ghz is a let down, kinda thought they'd go at least 1.2 but the phone will still fly regardless.

honestly dual core is great but i have an htc incrediable and it flys now so do i really need the second core to suck battery life. don't think it worth it, give me a higher res screen.

Basically, Verizon's Evo. Latest Snapdragon, but the Evo is no slouch either. Good for Verizon. Same 1500maH battery? :-) Will someone please do some battery technology research? When I want to make a call I need some juice!!

Yes, release date and price, plz - for phone and data/4G network. We've seen the pics and rumored specs for weeks now, so how about the next step?

I already love and own htc products and i really wanted this phone to blow me away.Didn't htc's ad say it's not your dream phone, it's the one after, really...what a joke. Aside from the front camera, and LTE what makes the phones hardware specs so much more impressive than the HD2 which is almost a year old now? The winner for me would have been a dual core and a higher-res screen. sorry HTC.

Looks like the Evo trailblazed the standard for every phone to come out of CES '11. The Evo is now 7 months old and still a contender!

So wish it came with HDMI.... DNLA seems expensive to get it set up and working in your home... I saw set up kits for $400.... Idk seems crazy to not also include the option of HDMI as well...

I'm sooooooo PASSING on this phone...Now I have to decide on either waiting out for the BIONIC or just jumping ship all together and seeing what the 2nd generation of the EVO brings on the Sprint!!! All I know is that Verizon dropped the ball on this one seriously and the $70 unlimited data, text, and talk plan on Sprint is looking so much better each passing second!!!
