    I'm not as worried about new phones as wanting a better network...4G?? LTE?? My Evo is fine by me until Sprint's network supports at least 4G in my area!!

    I'm not buying anymore android phones with hardware buttons taking up valuable surface area on the face of the phone. with ics you can keep the large screen without adding to the overall size of the phone. also, that thing does not look sexy with the white bezel clawing over the edges.

    on most phones/tablets where you can't pull the battery, if you just hold the power button down it will shut off. that's how it works on the nook color, and I've looped that thing a bunch of times.

    I was super excited about the nexus, but now I might be waiting for the galaxy s3.

    Yeah saw that, but the s4 processor is no wimp from the benchmark and stories I read.

    The S4 has which Adreno GPU built-in, 225 or 320? I'm extremely disappointed in the 220 provided w/ the current gen MSM8660 in the 3VO.

    I'm interested in seeing the reviews for the S4 devices, mainly in regards to battery life.

    Likewise, but I think it's safe to assume that the S4-powered devices will have better batt life than our current gen stuff. Especially since the radios are built into the die.

    I rather they take their time and get all the bugs out and even add enhancements that one up the competition.

    The following GDoc shows on the second tab the months that Sprint usually releases the most phones. For the last 5 years it has been June and Oct, for the last 10 years its been Sept / Oct.

    That's all phones. Not just smartphone and not just high-end. The Epic 4G was released in August, The Nexus S in May, The Shift in January. There are always exceptions. I am willing to bet the Galaxy Nexus will be out before June, I would even say before May.

    Still love my ET4G, none of these newer phones have me pulling out my wallet. Besides, the S3 will blow them all away when its released. I am waiting for that. I am sure it won't be till around fall to go head to head with the new iPhone.

    I'm guessing that the Galaxy Nexus is coming in April. Sprint might announce the next EVO at CTIA in May. And hopefully the GS3 will be a Summer release.

    The galaxy s 2 looks good in white. I have the evo and I love it. But i'm considering on switching to the galaxy s2 or (hopefully) if sprint gets the Note I'll switch to that. I know it looks somewhat large, but I wouldn't mind it at all. and I wouldn't care what others think of me with my big ol' phone ahah.
    I really do hope Sprint does get the Note, because if they do I just might have to buy it :)
    Also I did hear that Sprint might be getting the Galaxy S III as well..but thats what I've been reading on other forums and such.

    I doubt Sprint will see a G Note, but it's safe to assume that we'll see a variation of the GS3.

    I think they'll have a weird variant of the One X. It will probably have some minor spec changes, but I think we will definitely see one at CTIA and it will be the next EVO.

    Isn't CTIA usually on March? I wonder why they pushed it back all the way to May.
