My name is Nicholaus. I am fairly new to the android world, but am enjoying it very much so far. Never thought I would need a "fancy" phone, but didn't think I would ever text either. My wife started out with a Sprint EVO, but after various problems (namely battery life) and lack of customer support we have switched to AT&T. She was happy with the function of the EVO so she opted to go with the Inspire. Were as the EVO would not last half-day with limited use the Inspire can go from 5am till late afternoon. I myself opted for the Motorola Atrix, the Inspire just seemed a little bulky to me. I have been very happy with it. I do not know how much the dual-core processor helps, but it sounds cool when I tell people about it. I have joined this forum because I am finding out that you can never know enough about these type of phones. I believe this site/forum will help myself and maybe I can help someone else.
