Or maybe Sprint will come out with one with a larger battery later. I'm sure Sprint doesn't want a lot of bad press over poor battery life. I'm sure they weren't expecting all the chatter about how ugly some people think the phone is anyway.
If people are concerned about battery life, buy the phone on launch day & disappointed with the battery life, only to suffer buyer's remorse when a 'MAXX' :-P version of this phone hits the shelves 6-8 weeks after initial launch, they have no one to blame but themselves.
For everyone's sake that are going to purchase this phone come Hell or high water, I hope HTC & SPRINT has done some serious realistic everyday testing w/battery life on this phone.
The last thing HTC, & especially SPRINT needs right now is a swing-and-a-miss all for the sake of a slightly slimmer phone that won't make it past noon w/o looking for an outlet to re-charge.
If this phone had an accompanying tablet a la ASUS PADFONE, I'd be all over this phone.
The rest of the specs & features are definitely top-notch & I'm glad to see HTC putting out such a phone, if for no other reason than to push the competition to keep up or exceed the LTEVO.
