    I'm looking at you Droid DNA. I really thought I was going to jump all over the RAZR Maxx HD but I wanted to wait for user reviews. Now I need you all to buy this phone and test it for me :)

    Definitely an intriguing device. I have always liked HTC phones. Of course, I really like the way Moto is going with their MAXX line. Hopefully the battery in this one is respectable...

    I definitely hope so. If the battery life is terrible and non removable, Galaxy Note 2 here I come. I've been really looking forward to this device.

    So I'll be the first to ask...is there going to be an "HTC DROID DNA" dedicated board at AF? Perhaps after the 11/13 event?

    Yeah it should still be this board just renamed. Af can't keep changing board names based on rumors. I'm sure ought after the announcement they will change the name relatively soon.

    The phone will launch on the 20th, which is surprising that they pushed this out so quickly.

    I hear that. I have a pre order in for the note 2, but i will be heading to Verizon to check this out before making a final decision. I do miss LCD screens, so as long as this phone doesn't have battery life issues, I'll have a tough choice to make.

    Yeah the Incredible was great, but the EVO was a huge success as well. I have to say the HTC One X was really nice, battery life was alright, sucked it was locked down on ATT though.

    I am anxiously awaiting the announcement though.

    True dat.

    The Incredible was the first of it's kind really (besides the HTC Nexus just released, which no one bought, lol)

    The EVO didn't really bring anything new to the table (for me) the One series, while great, #1 weren't available on VZW and #2 didn't have anything that wow'd me. Though again, since they weren't on my carrier I never gave them a moments thought, except to complain that they had newer version of sense compared to my Rezound...

    The DROID DNA by HTC is a game-changer IMO

    SOOOOOOOOOOO can't wait till Tuesday :)

    Yeah I agree with most of that. I was on Verizon when the Incredible came out and I got it on release day, it was truly an awesome phone. But wasn't the EVO the first android phone with a 4.3 inch screen? Isn't that what made Steve Jobs throw a hissy fit saying no one would want a screen that big? I'm not sure, but I was thinking it was.

    I totally agree with you about if phones aren't on your carrier then usually they are not as big as a deal, but for me I switch carriers a lot just to play with new phones.

    This phone is going to be great, it would be absolutely perfect if it was a Nexus device with at least a 3,000 mah battery, but if it is 2500 mah it should be fine. I will live without it being a Nexus, but it would have been nice.
