    Nah it's called good marketing. The HDMI cable was intentionally missing, they want to get as much out of accessories as humanly possible.

    Keep one and give one to each of your 499 friends? LOL

    It's pretty new I mean I imagine that it'll mainstream when the Evo kicks off but it's a fairly new standard.

    The only thing I find missing in the "overall" specs is how much "internal storage" the phone will have.

    The Incredible lists 8GB of internal storage, as well as a slot for microSD up to 16GB. I'm assuming the EVO will have at least the same amount of internal storage, but there's no mention of it in the spec sheet yet.

    As for things that "should be included," the EVO is already going to have "1 up" on the incredible because it'll supposedly include a 8GB microSD. The Incredible has a slot for the microSD, but it is not included with the phone.

    I'm sure that Monoprice will have them soon. If they don't have them by the release date though, I'll probably pay Sprint pricing. Not very good at waiting for things I want. :(

    As far as features go:

    Super AMOLED screen is my only semi-realistic want on the phone. Noise cancellation would be nice too I guess.

    yes no and yes respectively

    tv remote only through a third party add on to your tv, like the ipod touch / i phone controling the itv thingy

    garage door opener no, totaly different frequencies, key-less entry for the car, yes the iphone already has this and android might too i just don't know

    The only feature this phone is missing is the MUTE your wife button.
