    The 2.1 ROM I'm pretty sure is finalized the 2.5 ROM is probably what they're working on that will probably be released as an update after the phone is released as the Hero/Moment was done being released with 1.5 and later upgraded to 2.1 via an update.

    That's what I'm hoping for as well....and also that they clear up their stance on the cost of 4G aka NO EXTRA FEE (hopefully that's not one of the changes they hinted about!). Whether mobile hotspot is free or not isn't a big issue for me.

    It's a WVGA LCD and 1GB ROM, 512MB RAM. Very little chance it will be anything different.

    Yeah, but I hate the tiny screen on the Pre. I've held an HD2 and it's barely bigger than an iphone. Kinda like an iphone in a case. I'm fine with it as it is but probably wouldn't go any larger for a phone.

    The N1 isn't much smaller than Evo. Use this link to overlay the N1 on the Evo and you'll see that there is not too much of a difference.

    There's conflicting information if that 8GB "internal memory" is flash memory (where you could store apps) or just a pre-installed MicroSD card...I doubt we'll know until release.

    Sprint is supposed to announce the official specs for the released version when they start their media blitz. That means we could find out something soon.

    All indications point toward TFT LCD.

    So after all this talk about what the big announcement will be this friday I know what that is..... Sprint.com will be 100% up and running again! That will be the big announcement LOL

    It will have nothing to do with anything we are all waiting for like.... the EVO :)

    Looked at an HD2 again today.... my opinion - it just doesn't look as good as the Nexus' AMOLED.... but that could partly be due to how shitty winmo 6.5 looks despite Sense... definitely not as crisp a UI as Sense on Android

    I've held an HD2 alongside my Nexus.... definitely a BIG difference in size... seeing in person is the only way to get a feel

    don't kid yourself... HD2/EVO are gigantic compared with a Nexus

    Yota ? HTC MAX 4G

    Look at the way the memory is listed on this phone by htc. It is pretty clear IMO that it is "built in memory."

    No?

    I think that Jackson mentioned that the EVO would have 8 or 10 GB. Anyone remember?

    I thought I saw somewhere that it would come with a 8GB memory card. I could be wrong but I am to lazy too hunt the website down.

    Incredible has 512 MB ROM and 576 MB RAM

    EVO has 1GB ROM, 512MB RAM


    Then Incredible and EVO both have 8GB of storage which is expandable of course. The EVO ships with an 8GB microSD card and it's unclear whether the Incredible's is built-in or also a 8GB card. Doesn't really matter though.

    8GB of built in storage space not RAM OR ROM is highly unlikely and unseen for the most part except on the iphone but that's Steve Jobs for you. I'm 99.9% sure it will ship with an 8or16GB Micro SDHC card, the card reader inside the phone will read cards up to 32GB so it's expandable up to that by simply replacing the Micro SDHC card.

    I figured it out! It's a new Type D connector, aka Micro HDMI.

    "Type D
    A Micro connector defined in the HDMI 1.4 specification,[50][53] it keeps the standard 19 pins of Types A and C but shrinks the connector size to something resembling a micro-USB connector.[54] The Type D connector is 2.8 mm
