Default Why no love for HTC Inspire??

Honestly the HTC Desire HD is one of the most lauded after phone in Europe and Asia and here it comes as the Inspire in America and there is no love for it? So what if the Atrix does what it does this phone is sick as well in it's own right

My biggest worry is, what will HTC be dropping at Mobile World Conference and CTIA? I know it's useless to worry about future technology, because something better is always around the corner but with both of those coming up in a relatively short period and an unknown release date for the Inspire, is it already dead in the water?

well the inspire will be out by march the latest so whatever is announced at the next shows all depends on what quarter they will be released so you will get at least 6 good months and besides if this phone does what you need it too who cares

It's basically a year old EVO with a faster GPU. No front facing camera, a very small amount of onboard storage and a low resolution (relative to the Atrix and iPhone 4) screen.

Nothing very exciting except that it has a huge screen.

If it's camera is like other HTC Cameras, then it's nothing to write home about.

The Inspire will be my 2nd option if the Atrix doesn't come to fruition. I was actually waiting for a Desire HD model phone to come to the states. HTC has always been my first choice and l love the form factor and 4.3" screen. With that said, even if the Atrix's tegra 2 chip is a bust, the 1Gb or RAM is just too tempting to pass on.

I also have a feeling that the Atrix will be up at the $299 subsidized price-point while the Inspire will be down at the "normal" $199.

The Atrix has top-of-the-line hardware but I feel that current applications (including the OS) still haven't fully utilized the current hardware norm (1 Ghz CPU with 512 MB of RAM). I still think buying a phone with the Inspire's specs is still a safe bet. Because of this, to me it's really coming down to the fact that HTC seems to have nailed a polished UI with Sense. Motoblur looks like a real heavy skin. Of course, all of that applies if you don't really want to root your phone. I'm sure there will be ROMs closer to AOSP than what Motorola is going to offer.

For me the Inspire inspires too little with smallish battery (1230mAH) and no front camera.

Otherwise, very decent phone.

Yeah, HTC has no clue when it comes to battery life.

Too little? Are you talking about the actual phone size?

I disagree maybe in the specs department but in total package im gonna tell you that the everyday use you will barely see a difference for the average user.

The lack of front facing camera (especially when the other two and the iPhone have it) will be a major disadvantage.

Skype is going to be a major player in 2011 and video chatting is going to be pushed further to the forefront this year. I think it's gonna be a bigger deal that it was last year. Could be wrong, but now that you can face chat with people on other carriers (thru Skype), I believe it will be a hit.

we will see but my cousins in Italy who have had these feature for many years almost never use it so if I take them as evidence I'm leaning to no

Skype has been listed as the next big thing since it's inception. I remember using it as a simple p2p voice service in 03.

I have no need for video calling, its another (battery wasting) gimmick.

My brother's family use Facetime quite a bit too. My friend also but he complained that he thinks his wife insist on using it to check up on him..

High end phones should have front camera these days.

No argument here. I never make my laptop purchasing decisions based on the position/quality of the webcam. In fact, I'd be perfectly fine if it didn't have one. I have no need for it. It doesn't take the place of a real face to face conversation and interaction with someone.

In that sense then, a touchscreen isn't a necessity, nor is a screen with more than one line of resolution. If all people wanted was a phone, we'd still be using brick sized phones.

The Inspire is getting very little attention due to the fact that the Atrix's specs blow it out of the water. Not saying that the Inspire isn't impressive in its own right, it just doesn't stack up compared to the Atrix.

Given what limited knowledge we have of the two phones, I'm one of the many people who are more excited over the Atrix than the Inspire. But I'm still going to keep my eye on the Inspire. The reason: HTC has proven to be the company with the most robust products, and best device support. So while the Atrix is amazing on paper, it may end up having some major flaw(s) -- much like the incredibly anticipated, but heavily disappointing Galaxy S line. If that ends up being the case, you can count on the Inspire being the polished, high-end device you can rely on.

Your assessment actually sums up why I will most probably go with the HTC. Especially if I am getting rid of my nexus S at least I know I will be getting update.

I'm really torn. I like the idea that I'll get better support (potentially faster OS roll-out) from HTC. I don't care about front-facing camera so that has no bearing on my ultimate choice but I do love the fingerprint scanner on the Atrix. That actually has me more geeked than the dual-core processing - which will likely be unnoticeable to me anyway...lol. I'm definitely waffling bewteen this and the Atrix.

Well I will say that as geek as the scanner is it will be a gimmicky thing when you lay out the usage from your phones. I also concur that the front facing camera is a non issue. So for me I'm starting to lean Inspire. Better build quality ,nicer UI Andy faster updates. As i probably wont be doing gaming on my phone the dual cores mean nothing to me

If it would have had qHD display and a larger battery maybe. But, without those two, at LEAST, I'm just un-Inspired. Pun intended.

The battery is a big disappointment for me too. I'm hoping seido releases a 1750mah battery like they did for the evo. This thing is a lot more efficient than the evo CPU wise, which seems to be a big reason why they went with the smaller battery, but I'd still feel more comfortable with the 1750 mAh extended battery.

The battery has to slide inside a little door. Hopefully they make one that will fit.

So for me I'm starting to lean Inspire. Better build quality ,nicer UI Andy faster updates. As i probably wont be doing gaming on my phone the dual cores mean nothing to me
Ya - I just like locking my phone and having a quick to p/w protect it without having to punch anything in would make me happy.

I also agree, not going to be gaming so dual-core won;t make a big difference for me. Just like you, my pendulum is swinging the way of the inspire. Having good support for updates is pretty high on my priority list (aside from my essentials).

Well I know the 1750 mAh battery that replaced the evo's stock 1500 was no bigger than the original, so hopefully that will be true here as well. I think even a 1600 mAh battery will be a huge difference and should make a days worth of battery a non-issue.

Don't mean to piss on the Inspire 4G party (got here from another thread) but personally I wouldn't buy a smartphone that doesn't have a FFC at this point. I use my EVO's FFC for group photos & Skype Mobile with Video should make video calls much more popular soon. Additionally video calling & augmented reality are considered to part of Android's future.

If that or dual core handsets don't interest you then AT&T customers certainly deserve more HTC options..

For me a front facing camera doesn't really matter so I rather have the accessability of the HTC openness and their quality. Besides sense kicks motoblurs ass

Sense is an even bigger intrusion that BLUR in my opinion. When I had my Desire, the first thing I did was get rid of Sense UI.

Also, Motorola is the original, they KNOW how to build phones with great RF, cameras and displays. HTC is hit and miss.

Motorola made a living off the RAZR forever. They have been terrible in the modern phone era, until they started really putting all their eggs in Android and the original Droid.
