    Thanks - I did that from the phandroid app in a hurry while on the bus. Much easier than copying and pasting the url.

    Here's your chance to put in your 2 cents in a wider forum.

    My only change would be a better speakerphone.

    I agree. I can't think of anything else, either. To me, the size is great, the speed is fine, battery life is very good, and it's very stable.

    Better speaker and maybe a physical keyboard. Although the latter would probably stray too far from it's predecessor's roots. If not, I'd have taken the "customization" of scenes and skins to the next level and let us customize the keyboard. I'm not a fan of the awkward Sense keyboard

    Move the USB port. The phone is hard to hold while plugged in.

    +1 for better speakerphone & USB placement, it is hard to hold while connected.

    Now that you mention it - yes, the usb placement is awkward. I liked it better on the bottom (on the Eris); it being on the side also limits your selection of desk and car mounts.

    This thread is so much more intelligent than the ignorant folks posting on the Engadget blog. Everyone on there was arguing and spouting out nonsense.

    What was amazing to me was the number of people giving their opinions without obviously ever using one. One person even said it needed Gingerbread.

    Seriously though,
    usb on the bottom, better antenna, power button on the other side of the top, Keep the single core processor (we don't need or want a quad-core suckin the battery life out), HDMI output, better loudspeaker, and super-amoled screen.
    BAM. Super baddass battery sippin Incredible 3!

    I'd make the e-mail application (including the Sense feature) like the old one... it would reflect whatever is in your inbox, and not the 30 days or less (depending on your settings) of whatever you've received.

    This "new" feature has got me ready to jump ship to iPhone :-(

    You can turn the shutter sound off. When you press the menu while in camera mode, scroll down the menu and you'll find "Shutter sound" as one of the selections.

    Folders - tired of the manila vanilla, HDMI, that cool clock from a phone that begins with H and not the drop in a circle folders that the Xoom has.
