Ohh man you are telling me! I just want to know all the ins & outs of Android Ice Cream Sandwich. I just can't wait to get it already. A true OS made for multi-core phones! Thanks to root I will be one of the few people who don't have to wait for an official update. Can't WAIT to have the HTC Evo 3D on ICS! XDA you guys are great! Once they release the code work until your heart's content! lol I want the juicy information already!

I'm excited to see what it looks like and whats under the hood, but I'm not getting it because it's Samsung. Could've been better if it's HTC made in my opinion.

Yeah i prefer the lock button on top, and HTC makes great phones. If they could only make their devices have better battery life.

what I think HTC is missing is a better screen. Super LCD does require more juice compared to the retinas and super amoleds. That's why their battery is suffering. I own a Desire HD and no complaints at all except for the battery life. I'm waiting for the first ICS phone out of the box from HTC. I bet it will be huge.

I really hope ICS can do something to move the Android ecosystem forward. OK, so Google may not have a true rival to Apple's book and music stores, but if things like high resolution screens and larger built-in storage are introduced more widely among Android phones, I think that will make them much more desirable. Also, the ability to use USB peripherals could add a lot to the Android experience. As of now I can't really think of much reasonable use for USB periphery in touchscreen Android devices, but it would be a step forward into the future. Especially if tablets really want to challenge notebook PCs. I would also love to see a clearly different visual experience on Samsung phones. That will finally cut the legal mess that is going on. Plus, I'm not that much of a fan of current TouchWiz. I think it's not up to the standard of the hardware in (some of) Sammy's phones.
