    True, but what I meant was that the cost of the omnivision chip (which can do up to 1080p) is factored into their pricing of the device. So, we paid for it. It's not like HTC cut us a bit of a break by lowering the cost of the device since they haven't yet loaded a proper driver yet.

    So, like I said, make use of the hardware we paid for. Hopefully a custom ROM comes out that gives us full capability.

    Man, would be nice if we were to be one of the first to get Froyo after N1. Hopefully this information is true. Stang DOES have the awesome HTC/Android Keychain, so sounds like it is.

    I know a few people here seem decently excited about the prospect of getting 720p recording, but i'm personally not. IMO if im going to use a feature i don't want it to be half baked like 720p video on ALL cell phones right now.

    Evo, IP4, Droid X they all have that "jello" effect as i've heard it referred to, and it really makes the video useless. IP4 probably does it best, but some of the video i have seen that include a good deal of movement and action it's still very crappy. Idk i suppose it's one of those marketable points for the phone. I guess i'm taking the "expect nothing" approach, if it does indeed happen and is completely useless i won't be disappointed, but if it works i'll be pleasantly surprised. My $.02

    Thanks for the info.

    The hotspot and 720p would be enough to keep me from buying the X. Unless it had the front facing camera, the bigger screen might not be enough for me to make the switch. I hope we can get more info on this before the X is released.

    Good'ish news for those looking for the keychains.. DX has them as a set of 4 (Green, Red, Blue, Black) for under $9 shipped, or $2.70 for a single one shipped in your choice of colors. I'm sure they won't have the "HTC" engraving, and I'm normally against most cheap knockoffs from china, but seeing as this is just a molded rubber item I figured you guys might want to save a few $$. Hope this helps:

    If they are going to make claims of 720P, then shouldn't it be: 1280x720 progressive scan 60fps? Is there are 720p standard they have to follow?

    Ya, It's not worth it if it will be 720p 20fps

    I have an HTC Incredible and got the software update 2 days ago. 720p and 3G Mobile Hotspot is definitely on there.
