I don't know how "obsolete" the HD is (ALL phones on the market now will be "obsolete" fairly shortly, depending on when new software is available) but the HD still seems like a great deal. I have literally read 20+ different reviews and the battery life and camera are the problem areas on all of them. That said, I don't use my phone as my camera when on vacation or when the pictures are important, and I have a car charger and spare office charger, so charging during the day isn't that much of a hassle for me.
HD performs nearly as well as the HTC One in nearly every category, and has some of the same hardware. I am seriously considering the HD as my next phone. I have the Atrix 2 and am unhappy with some of the quirks that the upgrade to ICS has caused. It seems that the upgrade from ICS to Jelly Bean was not nearly as problematic as for the HD.
And I can go to AT&T and get a $100 gift card for upgrading to HD OR just go to Radio Shack and get the HD for FREE with a re-newed contract.
Any reason I SHOULDN'T go with HD?
