Default Pocketnow.com - HTC Inspire 4G; 2-13, $100

Here is some information from Pocketnow.com. Click here for the full story.

Quote:
Perhaps trying to steal some of the thunder from the many announcements scheduled for that day at Europe's Mobile World Congress, AT&T will release its HTC Inspire 4G Android handset on February 13th, according to someone familiar with the plans. The CES-debuted Inspire will only cost $99.99 on contract, after a $50 mail-in rebate. With most high-end hardware launching at around the $200 mark, we have to wonder if the relatively low price is a tacit admission that this model is a rebadge of last fall's Desire HD -- whose aging specs would have trouble going up against Motorola's Atrix 4G and Samsung's Infuse 4G on an even playing field. Atrix is also expected in February, although it's not clear when Infuse will ship. All three models will have to compete with four LTE-capable smartphones from Verizon in the near future as well.

Wonder if that means you can get it @ 200 for a 1 year deal. I'd be down with that.

So, I've been lurking for a little while looking to drop my iPhone for this or the Atrix, and I felt that it was time to join the fun. Hello! Anyways, I gotta ask...aging technology? They make it sound as if it's gonna be slow and doomed to failure. Is this a possibility?

Ah.....The "latest and greatest" sheep device! Lol

It would be fantastic to see this drop on the 13th along with the Atrix, but it'll be really hard deciding which to get. Decisions, decisions.

Yup, the HTC has been pulling me closer and closer since unveiled. Coming from an iPhone, rooting is foreign to me. I suppose I'll get up to speed fast enough

I would assume I could get the same for my 3GS, plus I have my old Tilt so I'm wondering if they'll give me anything for that.

$200 for a one year contract and then we will see where we are with the whole 3g/lte situation and what ever additional tegra 2/tegra 3, android 2.3+ phones come out from someone who ISN'T samsung or motorola in March of 2012...

sounds like a plan to me....

One month? They actually let you do the upgrade 3 months ahead of time (if im not mistaken).

My contract is April (i think) and im already showing as eligible.

Do they do extra perks for long time customers who have had high rate plans in the past? i see people complaining about AT&Ts customer service and every time i have a request..they pretty much roll out a red carpet for me and bring refreshments....

My contract is over in August but my upgrade is eligible in March. I'm hoping they give me an early advanced on the upgrade so I can pick this up. It will be my valentines day present to myself.

DOH!

So i have been hanging on to this 3GS longer than i should have. Truth is i was kinda waiting to see what iphone 5 was before i bought the Gtab, decided i liked having andorid/sd card/adobe flash (for news clips) better than having a few more apps and netflix on a tiny 3.2 screen....

Long story short.....getting one of these new AT&T 4g android phones...BRAND NEW IDEA pretty much last week....

I'm so excited that I think I just wet myself!

But Pocketnow dissing on my Inspire, not cool. LOL

Matt

P.S. - AndreaChristiano: Are you sure that your going with the Inspire? I saw that Motorola said that the Atrix will launch that the end of Feb.

And do you think that this will be a disappointing phone? The Inspire of course. I'm interested in feedback.

I am not expert on this but here is how i see it:

Atrix versus inspire

Atrix Pros:

Faster processor/More Ram

Ability to swap back and forth between lap top mode and phone mode for creating content moving files without having to do a synch/file transfer/side-load type of operation between a PC and phone.

Lap top port includes an additional battery

Media Port that includes HDMI output

Front facing camera

Larger battery

Could possibly be more future proof if (and thats a BIG IF), Motorola releases updates in the OS and or tegra II optimizations as they come out.

Superior gaming and video device (although with a smaller screen thats kinda self-defeating)

Atrix Cons:

Blur

Comment that it will be bootloader locked and or to "buy elsewhere" by Motorola representative if you don't like that (that combined with blur is a kind of "one-two punch" in the gut for many).

Smaller screen on phone

Highly unlikely that Android will be optimized to use the dual-cores much

Added expense of buying Lap top port and/or multi media port

Lap top port probably only useful to someone who doesn't already have a lap top or tablet type device (which i suspect is VERY FEW people)

Probably no HDMi port on phone (not on inspire either).

Only a 5mp camera versus inspires 8mp

Brand new device...most likely will be released with a very immature version of blur (as opposed to the inspire which will have a very matured version of sense) - translation, expect it to be buggy (at least at first).

No man I'm sure.

For one I dont think the actual real world difference in speed will be noticeable.

two the Inspire is a much nicer looking phone

three HTC bring the fastest updates beside pure google

four unless your using the Nvidia games I dont believe the dual core processor will be utilized much if any

And the BIGGEST plus no LOCKED BOOT!!!!!!! easier to root and you can install full ROMS with no work arounds or any other BS needed.

Oh and also if you keep it stock SENSE kills MOTOBLUR
and sense 2.0 with the new features like find my HTC etc etc kill it

There are definitely some good points here, but I will say this half of those Atrix pros will never be used by the majority, which in turn becomes a pro for the inspire

Also what I bolded here I completely concur if dual core was what google wanted the Nexus S would have came out that way.

very cool and very true. The inspire is a jacked up Desire HD which is loved the world over!! The UI is pretty flawless on the Desire so with the added ram its gonna be incredibly fluid. Ya know its funny the Inspire has almost 800MB of ram while the Atrix has 1GB in the real world use that wont even be recognizable

Regarding Ram.

My first 'real" windows PC had 64k of ram and a 1.6Ghz hard drive. I think it had 486dx2 intel processor( i think) that ran between 33mhz and 66mhz (no kidding), the 66mhz version was "high end". It was made by Packard Bell and was called the "Microsoft Station" It had every bit of micorsoft software avail pre-installed on it from office, to windows to enclopedia info etc. It cost almost $3,000.00

If they cant make these phones "awesome" with 1gh processors, 768 to 1g ram and 4g to 32g rom..running LIGHTER operating systems...."sumthins wrong"

Even with that it would run playstation one level graphics when the voodoo graphics cards came out with a WHOPPING 2-4g of ram (i believe it was) as i used to play tomb raider on it, and it looked better than the same game on the ps1 (although it would lag at times)

I totally get what you are saying, but think of this if you take the second core out of the Atrix it has nothing on the Inspire so the only reason theres all this hype is ...well hype ....first dual core etc etc but as many have stated Android wont be optimized for dual core anytime soon so who really cares. Also the majority of people dont play video games on their phones like a PSP so who needs the dual core again?

I was actually sort of agreeing with you...with a little "perspective" circa 1994-1995. Truth be told that thing may have had the first pentium processor in it..i think it was either the 100 or the 133.... woa....

I actually remember the 33hmz/66mhz/100mhz and 133mhz computers

Going to go lay down and feel old now...

No wait...when i was a kid i had an IBM PCjr that ran at


Wait for it..

4.77mhz

Amazon.com has pulled the pages for the Inspire 4G and the Atrix.

Well, looks like I have some bargaining power with AT&T. My ETF is so low to buy myself out, I can hang that over their head with a threat to go to Sprint or Verizon.

It's simple, AT&T. Let me upgrade a few months early, or lose me! ;-)

And the BIGGEST plus no LOCKED BOOT!!!!!!! easier to root and you can install full ROMS with no work arounds or any other BS needed.

Oh and also if you keep it stock SENSE kills MOTOBLUR
and sense 2.0 with the new features like find my HTC etc etc kill it
Very true. I'm not planning on running Sense at all. I'll root it and ROM it.

Plus Nvidia is sort of useless at this point in time. I'm sure that the Nvidia games are cool, but I wouldn't be using that technology to its fullest potential.

I'm definitely getting this on launch day.

If your with at&t, you should check if your available for an upgrade. I wasn't due until March, but I've been upgrade ready for a while now.

Well if I was you I would run sense for a bit and see how you feel many HTC modders leave it. You would be surprised

Yeah, there are some great sense mods.

I think for me, I'll probably run Sense for a while, then go about modding it, then on to a custom rom, probably cynogen or something along those lines.

Being brand new to the Android community, I'll be picking your brains for information on the best hacks and roots an what not. My ultimate goal, as I have stated previously, is to remove all bloat-ware and garbage applications. I only want what I need to run and certain apps that I have on my iPhone (I've already checked, they're available in the Android Marketplace) on the Inspire 4G. Anything non-essential I will remove to streamline the OS.
