New fast boot feature. Phone boots up in 4 seconds: YouTube - HTC Fast Boot on Desire Z Hands on footage: YouTube - Engadget: HTC Desire Z Hands On YouTube - HTC Desire Z Introduction & New HTC Sense YouTube - HTC Desire HD & Z hands-on YouTube - HTC Desire Z I am so excited about this phone. Build quality is on point and will be perfect for my business/networking needs. People can complain about power all they want, but the fact is this phone does not require a 1ghz processor. That would require a bigger battery which means more bulk on the phone. You can tell that even with HTC Sense the phone flies, nothing lags at all. Imagine this on stock android! Wow. Did I say the build quality is excellent? This is the first phone that really matches the N1 in build quality. The phone looks so damn sturdy for some reason. If I were to throw it at a wall I feel like the wall would break and not the phone. People don't understand that power isn't always everything if it doesn't function right. Example, the Vibrant is the most powerful phone on the market, even more powerful than the Desire HD. However, because of the OS you can never even use that power. It bottlenecks the phone, you can't even tell how powerful the hardware really is. On top of that, Android 2.2 doesn't require much processing power. Sure this phone would be fine and dandy with a nice dual core processor, but half of that power would never be used! HTV would be spending billions to put a beefed up processor into the phone, but as of now, there is no real use for that power. Are you going to buy a 5Ghz computer if all you do is browse the web, play an occasional game, and send email? Come on now. If you want unnecessary power and a pretty screen so you can watch youtube videos a tad bit more clearly, go get a Vibrant and deal with the issues it has. Or you can wait for the G2 which will work as advertised, no crappy UI messing things up. For someone like me who needs basic things like GPS, email/text, web browsing with full flash etc. to work flawlessly, the Vibrant doesn't cut it. The Vibrant feels like a toy that was made to make people salivate because they can watch avatar in HD. Big deal. The GPS doesn't work and the phone lags for no reason. Not to mention battery life is horrible. Don't worry about Android 3.x. It hasn't been announced and more than likely, just like the update from 1.x to 2.x, next generation hardware will be needed to run it. I expect Google to release new hardware with 3.x that dwarfs everything on the market so they can display their OS and show what's needed to run it smoothly. To uphold the integrity of Android Google has to release hardware with major updates, otherwise they'll have nothing to show it off with. But again, 3.x is so far off and out of your control that it shouldn't factor into you getting the G2 or not. Just be happy that this is the SECOND phone that runs 2.2 stock, and is more powerful than the Nexus One. So excited for this phone. I hope the G2 has the same dark grey color tone as the Desire Z.
