    Given that there are no CDMA Nexus One's available... nope, no second guessing whatsoever.

    The Evo will get Froyo sooner or later... so no big deal.

    I guess... The really big upside to the EVO i guess is that it wont gett BOGGED down after a month like my Hero did .... Having that Snapdragon and all... and I wouldnt mind riding the Wimax wave until LTE goes live

    Absolutely not. I'm new to Android, so I don't mind starting with 2.1 and then getting the update for 2.2 at a later date. Either way, we know we'll get it eventually.

    Second half of 2010 started 27 days before the Evo comes out, so, no.

    Negative. HTC has already said that they're working on it. XDA is probably already working on it right now as it is.

    Zero concern here.

    Well heck if you are going to not buy a phone because the new os is coming out in the next few months, then heck do not get the froyo. Get gingerbread! It will be out in the 4th quarter and is going to be the greatest ever!

    I am sorry but if you want to run around chasing what is always going to be 2 months away, then do.

    Mean while I will enjoy my evo. 2.1 is good enough for me.

    From what I've read.. LTE is just a software upgrade form existing WiMAX hardware (thats from Clear) and if sprint decides to move to LTE and dump WiMAX it'll be a quick upgrade and nothing on our side.

    I don't see anything here to worry about. The N1 isn't cdma and we will have Froyo in no time even if we have to use custom roms which we likely will.

    honestly, if you want it that badly, why not just wait for a ROM?

    Why would you commit to 2 years of another phone because you can't wait an extra month for an OS upgrade? You really want to give up 4G and the other features for that long just to avoid a one month wait on the OS features?

    no iphoneHD till 2011? thats pretty shocking itself. that basically would hand the market to android. who knows whether thats true. was sort of looking forward to the new iphone just to see if they'd raise the stakes. if its not till 2011 then heck EVO2 will probably be out and be even more of a monster.

    After looking at some of his posts, he is probably one of those Incredible fan boys trying to find anyway he can to steal our joy.

    well from what an extremely knowledgable source (riverofice) says, lte and wimax will be buddies one day and work together, and neither one is competing with the other (paraphrasing)...riverofice if you're reading this, i would like to know if like wimax, lte will also hav bugs, spotty areas etc. when it becomes operational for mobile devices, which i understand to be in 2011....if so, would it be logical to assume that by the time that happens, wimax, because of it's early jump will be even more fine tuned and working even better, while lte will be experiencing the minor hiccups and such that wimax may go thru in these early stages?

    also i'm not sure if you saw the wimax signal repeater thing that radioshack is rumored to be installing in some of its stores, but if you have, are these the types of things you were talking about in reference to wimax being implemented all over cities, buses, buildings etc.? grassy ass in advance
