    I thought we should maybe put all of BSOD posts into one single post so people can read what is going on. Especially since that thread is for features wanted in the EVO 2 and not what we think it is. Feel free to delete if needed Mods. His posts had me too excited in that thread to keep my head on straight. My chances at studying for my exams are shot now lol. I hope you don't mind BlueScreen having this all in one post. I thought it would help keep things from getting scattered and having multiple questions asked. As stated, feel free to delete Mods.

    EarlyMon, Black Dynamite, and Drexappeal had a huge contribution to that thread. And last but not least, BSOD.

    Oh, and to the 5+ threads asking whether or not you should get an EVO now...read all of this and then decide.

    Too cool, jd. Really appreciate collecting all of BlueScreen's posts. Wish there was a way to merge this thread with the EVO 2 thread, while still keeping your post locked in the first post.

    IDK what setup they have here on Androidforums. On my forum I can move posts from one thread to another...if Earlymon wanted, and this site had the capabilities, they could just move all those posts into here...

    Yep, I'm just deciding if or where...

    No need to jump the gun and confuse people. ;)

    Pages of responses are already streaming by.

    So, I'll tell you what I'm gonna do.

    I'm going to lock this one and move subsequent BSOD posts into the OP of this thread and bump it.

    That way, there will be this summary here to save lots of confusion in searching, and discussions over there.

    And for those that don't know - clicking that triangle next to BSOD's name in any of those quotes will take you to the original thread/post.

    If anyone has a better idea, freely PM me.

    Cheers, thanks a lot!

    Well I think it's obvious Blue Screen was totally full of it. He should be banned for trolling.

    I fail to see the "glaring" differences between what BSOD said would be announced and what was actually announced. Anyone want to point them out for me (seriously)?

    well despite the kickstand, 3MP ffc, and the ROM space tidbits, to me he was pretty spot on. a little long winded but he was close enough. even other confirmed he was pretty much accurate with OG Evo news before launch.

    Seriously, can you point out something that he actually got right that we didn't already know about in advance?

    Out of everything he said, we either already knew about it or he was flat out wrong. and this was the night before the announcement (where he was supposedly going to be on stage making the announcement, and giving a shout out to this forum). I would think if he was legit, he would have known about the device the night before he was supposed to announce it.

    He was a troll.

    THe only thing That I would not put in there right now is all the stuff that the twin cams can do, just b/c it was not announced they could do them, that part sounds more like a software thing and might still be in the works, OR cam software available later from the market to take advantage of this, the hardware may still be able to do/handle this, they just dont have the software fully worked out yet. but who knows untill it happends!!!! (BTW this is all IMHO... in no way do I know that this is correct, but its just my logical mind working, lol)

    Well he said they were going to announce/demo it today, so he was wrong either way.

    He claimed that all the stuff he "leaked" to us was going to be announced, plus a lot more that he couldn't leak.

    I think this and the kickstand removal is my only shortcomings in yesterday.

    But dont think for a moment I wont be getting my new evo 3d the FIRST DAY it is released. I will do like I did last year...take the day off from work for baby bonding....:D

    Well as a person who thinks positive - one thing BSOD did was keep us excited and hyped for the device 3 days before the presentation....so I can appreciate that!!!!:)

    Don't assume that this isn't right. There is a possibility. The phone isn't being sold at the store right now. We have months to go before launch. How do you know they cannot sneak it in there?

    I think the point is that currently, this is nothing more than rumor. There are certainly any number of things they could "squeeze in there", but there is no reason for us to assume this will happen outside of another poster who states he works for HTC has said this would happen. Quite frankly, I think an antenna like this would come only if Sprint was absolutely certain they were going with LTE. If they are certain NOW, I think we would have heard an announcement. Even though there seems to be good information suggesting Sprint will go with LTE in the future, they are not about to go announcing anything until all the T's have been crossed and I's dotted.

    It would show up in the FCC filing. So it will come out in the end if it has it or not.

    if HTC/Sprint do decide to make any changes, does the device have to go back through the FCC?

    Yeah, the FCC would definitely have to approve any changes to the radios.
