    Ok, already people are talking about the "Evo's successor". My question to you is, what more could we or anyone else possibly ask for in a phone? I mean we have video calling, a fast"enough" processor, HDMI out and coming with 2.2 full flash.. I don't know what the Evo successor could achieve that Evo can't. I mean mabye TRUE HD video and a better camera but far as specs go I don't know what else we could possibly want.

    What could possibly be next? Help me out here.

    More colors! My iPaq from 2003 had 65k colors. That's lame for a SuperPhone.
    Also more internal memory and a faster GPU for those that like gaming. Oh and the Camcorder bites right now.

    There's always room for improvement and more features. Just think, 10 years ago a phone that could make calls and send a text message was unheard of. It was just a dream in someones head. Now look at what phones do. 10 years from now...?

    Never hurts to have a faster processor, I would love that 1.5ghz dual-core snapdragon.

    I'll take a screen with higher DPI and 1080p output/video recording, as well. (not to mention a better sensor in the camera)

    Better Battery technology. Especially if we want to keep adding more "neat" features.

    I sincerely hope they focus on the build quality in the next Evo release. Obviously screen light leakage/separation issues need to be fixed. I would like to see the case to be made of different materials to be less "plasticky".

    Also.. the camera quality (both stills and video) can use a lot of improvements to be on par with iPhone 4. And I am taking about the optics/sensor quality, NOT the megapixel count.

    I wish for once HTC would stop with releasing 500 different phone models every year, and just focus on the incremental quality improvements in a few core models. But knowing HTC, that's unlikely.

    This will probably be the deciding factor on how far our future phones can grow. For instance, in the "gotta have it now" era that we live in... 4G networks (be it LTE or wimax) will be in high demand by consumers, but the power our EVO uses for just a couple hours of 4G use is ridiculous. There's got to be a battery innovation before these phones get better/more spec'd out, unless people only want to use their phones for a few hours at a time between charges.

    1. better battery
    2. faster processor, it can seriously never be 'to fast'
    3. faster RAM to go along with faster processor
    4. more RAM...no reason it can't have 2gb of RAM imo =P
    5. more dpi
    6. more fps

    that's all that could be improved easily. imo. we'll be there one day. can't imagine a phone having a dual core 2ghz processor with 2gb of ram...sheesh, the laptop i'm using is a dual core 1.8ghz with 3gb of ram lol

    How about it's exactly the same size, with the 4.3 inch screen, but folds open and has two 4.3 inch screens that act as one.

    -16G Internal Memory with 8+ MicroSD
    -Micro-cooling system
    -More colors/Higher resolution
    -Refined/truly higher res cameras
    -Screen size is fine.

    Take notes HTC!

    The biggest knocks I have are poor 4G coverage, battery life, software issues (processes running when I don't want them to, which I think could be fixed with Froyo)

    For me? I'd like to see a trackpad like the Incredible or Legend on the EVO 2. Also, Sprint/Clear/HTC need to figure out how to make 4G more "fuel efficient" so that it can be used for more than 30 minutes at a time... Always room for improvement, OP.

    Improved memory management. Once I quit an app I want its share of memory immediately available for use. The operating system should also be able to track app usage and see that there is no reason to cache an app that I have never even opened once. App caching should be based on usage.

    I remember when I had really old computer. People said that 133Mhz was the fastest a computer can get for a really long time. That ended after 2 months. The truth of matter is that, we can always use a better and faster and more efficient chip, better lasting battery, better camera, better wireless connectivity (N) but personally... I want a phone that can "Do my laundry and take out the trash" maybe I can call it the "HTC evolutionary Wife"

    Personally, all I'd change would be to go to a more vibrant and power-savings AMOLED display, and I'd make the 30 fps cap configurable by the user - because it can suck a bit more juice to go that route, and some of don't need more than that while others do.

    As for 1080p out - nah, that would require a more sophisticated video scaler, I don't see the point.

    However - it would be way cool to have a built-in pico projector, a digital micro mirror, similar to a DLP capability. That exists as an add-on for things like iPods, but it can be built right into a phone.

    How the tech works is here:

    Microvision: PicoP Technology

    Check out some commercials - note: no focusing, show anywhere:

    Microvision: Video Gallery

    Now, here's that concept on steroids. I saw one of these while I was in Taiwan this month:

    YouTube - Pomegranate Phone NS08

    Okay, okay - but the pico projector is very real. The Pomegranate, like a Global Link as seen in Earth: Final Conflict, sadly is not - yet.

    BTW - pico projecting phones exist, I just haven't seen one in the US - yet.

    MWC: Samsung Halo Packs Pico Projector, Super AMOLED, Android 2.1

    By the way - watch out - Microsoft's got one, too!

    Not as two together?

    YouTube - Microsoft "Courier" secret tablet

    Uhhhh - seriously - no comment on the Courier.

    However - folding screen phones are being worked on...

    I bet the OP wasn't expecting such a laundry list. lol. Isn't the battery seperate from what the phone can offer. I mean, they can make the phone use the battery more efficiently, but battery tech is not really a phone feature.

    I'll take whatever they come up with, i'm a simple guy. I talk, text, snap a few photos, watch some youtube surf the net. I don't need a super computer in my pocket. No matter what anyone comes up with today, it can be made better tomorrow and some people will never be satisfied.

    I read a article that said that battery technology can't keep up with our mobile demands anymore and I agree with that... we need new battery technology... like a miniature nuclear reactor or mobile hydrogen cell... lol

    i agree, we need to stop thinking of batteries in the same way.... the batteries we have now are the exact same as the first batteries that ever existed, the chemicals my be different but the process of storing energy is the exact same and it just doesn't work anymore. we need new energy source ideas on the small scale

    Batteries, huh? I agree.

    I'm just shy the 2800 clams to see what's inside this one:

    Batteries Supercapacitors Alternative Storage for Portable Devices

    Another approach: IBM Aims for a Battery Breakthrough - BusinessWeek

    Using Carbon Nanotubes to Produce Electricity

    And finally, somethin' for nothin' - from:

    Self-powered devices possible, researcher says
