    what do you guys think they're gonna present? maybe unveil some new devices?

    i personally hope that they give us more info on the new version of Sense. i'm hoping the Inspire will be upgradeable to it ;)

    Well so far all they've unveiled is the HTC Sensation. It's a beautiful beast. Great specs too.
    Dual core, qHD screen, gorilla glass. *drool

    does it? all i know is that it's quad band. but if it does support AT&T's 3G it may persuade me to get it even more :)

    Not that I have read. It's for T-Mobile.

    I know it's for T-Mobile but on a spec sheet I saw the bands that AT&T uses (if I'm not mistaken). It's not out of the realm of possibility for a T-mobile phone to support at&t 3g. I saw a report on engadget (if I remember correctly) that the optimus phone they're getting supposedly has at&t bands as well, perhaps in preparation for the merger.

    Heard that the Inspire won't be getting any Sense 3.0 action. That let me know that the Inspire will soon be out of my group. Up next is the Samsung Galaxy S II! Can't wait for this beast of a phone! I am actually excited to use the new TouchWiz 4.0 overlay that Samsung has created!

    You know the 3D interface is probably the only thing they will leave out.

    The Inspire is plenty capable to handle the new dock and lockscreen.

    I'm no corporate stooge, but calmer heads should prevail. The Inspire is a nicely balanced piece of hardware that handles the UI and most apps snappily, came pretty damn cheap for 2 year contract reuppers, and is relatively stable machine.

    Given that I will give them my trust this time that some elements are outside the realm of the Snapdragon and/or the given interface, and will also trust them to follow through on delivering useful portions of Sense 3.0.

    Sense is the strongest selling point of this machine to most consumers and I'll like to see its usefulness extend while the hardware is still in play.

    That being said, I'm frustrated at this 4G branded machine not being able to handle true 4G when it does come available, to my current knowledge. But that's AT&T's normal technical stoginess bouncing against their marketing's flirtations with truth, and its not like I didn't know about this pattern.

    Folks have already ported portions of Sense 3 to the Desire HD. Turns out the hardware limitation isn't horsepower, its screen resolution. Sense 3 appears to be designed for quarter HD resolution only.
