There will be no microSD slot on the phone, but before you start cursing, there will be 32GB of native storage on the handset which comes in at 8.8mm thick. A microSIM slot is on board and an 1800mAh battery provides the juice. After reading through the specs, you can see where HTC got the name for the smartphone from. Imagine the display on the Apple iPhone 4S expanded to 4.7 inches on a phone that takes you where you want to go faster than all of today's dual-core hot shots.
It won't be out in time for this year's holiday season, but by the time we are half way through 2012, this beast could have smartphone users living on the Edge.
- Display 4.7" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.3 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus, Dual-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 16 GB
- Battery 1800 mAh(8.50h talk time)

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.

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

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.
