I am past the whole Support factor. At this point I am mearly holding out for the next generation of processors (ie 2GHz, dual core, etc) and more RAM.

The Hummingbird is a nice processor and spanks the Snapdragon hands down. But it is still only 1GHz at heart.

When we get to the next generation and I am looking at phones I may consider Samsung but if HTC has a closely spec'd device I will choose HTC. Just a preference.
