    Laptop Mag review = Washington Post Review. Both are pitiful.

    Quadrant scores really do not mean anything. Smartbench 2010 (also in market) is the most accurate benchmark test I have come across.

    For example, Acer recently released a patch for Liquid E that gave the phone Quadrant scores of over 1600 (last years Snapdragon, QSD8250, running at a clockspeed of 768MHz. And this Quadrant score is very high, higher than a stock Galaxy S which has the best GPU for any single-core processor). YET, the phone felt slower (I tried it out) and when I did a Smartbench test, the scores (for both productivity AND gaming) WERE LOWER.

    Ever since then, I don't really trust Quadrant scores to much.

    Next time you get a chance, run a Smartbench test.

    No big. Im just saying this review was irrelevant and irresponsible. For one its extreme use not heavy. Two no user will use it that way three why explain it as.a negative when no one will use it that way? ?

    I _Never_ use battery life as a deciding factor when buying a new laptop or smartphone.

    And believe me I _need_ long battery life since my work demands I travel worldwide.

    So why do I ignore battery life? Because first of all there are too many usage scenarios that effect battery, and do _not_ reflect my use.

    Second I can always find a power outlet when I need one.

    Third, why let someone elses assessment of battery life keep me from buying a great device?

    That's my take on it.

    Cheers :)

    Okay, so I got in touch with HTCSource, and this is what he said:

    "from what I can tell, they are identical in every way. I'll contact HTC just to make sure"

    This is extremely good news. I trust the guys at HTCSource so far. If they say its identical, it almost assuredly is.

    Seidio is already renaming their equipment as Desire/Inspire compatible. I think that was already stated somewhere in the forums, but just in case:

    seidioonline.com

    Edit: Link is directly to an Inspire search @Seidioonline.com

    Looking forward to flashing the ROM on this phone to one that will support HSUPA, assuming that it's not enabled with the 4G switch being turned on.

    I know we've discussed it a million times, but the upload speeds on this thing are pathetic

    Unrelated, but somewhat related, Atrix 4G looks like its HSUPA has been gimped as well. Yes its before the so called HSPA+ hard launch, but like Blanco, we will see next month. :p

    Edit: On topic, probably to the disdain of Andrea, lol, Pocketnow's Review (4.5/5): http://pocketnow.com/android/htc-inspire-4g-review

    Thanks. I was about skip the Inspire and jump to Verizon after reading about the slow speeds. Would like to see a comparison with big red though.
