    about a month to late! I already got the incredible.

    I agree the Evo is a better phone as long as you dont mind the size and dont have issue with sprint.

    I am toying with the wild idea of getting the evo but activating on vzw

    there comes a time when size gets TOO big and i think this one runs a fine line. i'm sure MANY will love the phone, and, it is really cool. but the incredible's just the right size to make it a viable option as a phone as well, so not to feel as if you're holding a tablet up to your face.

    Sprint is CDMA so yes it can be done, however i don't believe it can use Verizon's 3G.

    that's what i mean. without 3G whats the point?

    the Nexus one can be used on ATT but with no 3G. if it's the same way here then it's pointless. no point to having a smartphone with no 3G.

    i would agree. i don't need a kickstand on my phone and i would RARELY use HDMI output. cool to have, but low on the list of useful items for me. front facing camera? COOL. how often would i ever find a need to use it? probably never, but again, just me!

    So some day when it is all 4G will 3G phones still work on the 4G network?

    Can you imagine what the battery consumption must be on this baby?

    exactly it has a couple features over the Inc, but i'll never use them. and the phone is just to big. i have seen and used the HD2(essentially the same phone), it's just to big.

    But isn't there a Nexus 1 w/AT&T 3G bands? Much like there is a "Euro GSM/UTMS Moto Droid" in addition to a Canadian/AT&T GSM/UTMS Moto Droid?

    no kidding, with the crap battery they put in the Inc, I'm curious as to what they'll ship the EVO with. i'd laugh my ass off if it was the 1300, but doubtful. prob the 1500, as they shoulda done with the inc.

    yes there is, but there's not an EVO made for Verizon's 3G network. it's just for sprint, at least for right now, so it will only use sprints 3g/4g. add the fact that verizon won't even be using the same 4g technology as sprint (LTE vs Wimax respectively), it would even make less sense to activate it on verizons network.

    The battery on this thing is going to crap out at about Noon...My HD2 was an absolute Pig, and CDMA is way worse.

    1500 mAh, according to the specs on Sprint's website. Sprint - HTC EVO? 4G

    There is also a $10 monthly 4G additional charge. Figures they would try to be pigs.
