Cool. Can't wait. I'm hoping they'll announce the Flyer is released today since I just shipped my Galaxy Tab to some lucky ebayer :)

I'll watch this. Just need to hope my connection doesn't flake out. Or my laptop. I always struggle to watch YouTube on this thing...

Perhaps the Pyramid? Since the Flyer has been announced, and up for pre order?

This phone looks like the one I've been holding out for since my HTC Magic gave up the ghost last September and I switched to a Blade.

Just a couple of points need confirming:

What's the RAM? most rumours say 768mb but I'd have thought a brand new flagship device should be 1gb?

What's the battery power? Hopefully substantially better than the Desire HD, at least 1500mAh.

What are the dimensions? The casing looks slightly bigger than the Desire HD but same sized screen.

So it has a better resolution screen than Desire HD or samsung Galaxy S2, but less RAM, no NFC, larger than S2, less powerful battery...

Hm. Decision making is hard but I think I'll stick with the Samsung Galaxy S2.

Oh - and the screen technology is not as good, and it doesn't have such a good front facing camera! (my most important camera - video calling!)

Gorilla Glass is good news :)

Battery better than the DHD but nowhere near the Atrix and still below the Galaxy S II

Slightly larger, but lighter, than the DHD.

Excitement still hasn’t worn off. Definitely getting one of these on launch day, even if it involves paying for one upfront with actual physical money. :) :rolleyes:
