Who here thinks that 90% of those type of sites will have completely phased out FLASH by 2011? ANYONE?

2012? MAYBE...

I HATE the OS, but if it had the EVO's specs and was 4g (the biggest deal) then yes I would consider it, and would definitely GET IT if the EVO itself didn't exist.

I'm not a huge fan of Android either... but at least the HTC EVO does almost everything I could ask for.

It depends. It depends who and what adopt it when. If, for example, YouTube goes completely HTML5 say in 5 months, and a major corporation tries it with one of their sites, it could be 2011, sure. It all has to do with cost. IT also has to do with each site's redesign schedule.

Google has already made some big steps. No more gears. YouTube adoption. Apps pretty much ready for it.

Which to match the EVO, the next Iphone would need to be available on the Sprint network... unless you want to wait 18-24 months for the next carrier to catch up.

4G is really Sprint only at this point.

So, I'm going to say no 4G. I'd put it at 10% that a Verizon phone would be LTE.

Why is 4g such a big deal?

Sounds like you're building up the EVO to be something it might not be. And I'm a fan of the EVO, sprint aside.

if EVERYONE jumped on the bandwagon I MIGHT be convinced of reaching that metric by Dec. 2011... you know... 20 months from now...

Google IS leading the charge due to the need for HTML5 regarding WAVE. Even with Google pushing for it, no one I know expects it any time soon. (< 12 months)

why build up 4g? because the data speeds whip the crap out of 3g (at least in Austin).. I can watch HD video on my phone... with an HDMI out I can watch NFL Ticket anywhere...

I can also use the EVO as a mobile hotspot... might be nice to have the speed to do that...

btw... let me know when Verizon actually does more than TALK about LTE... 2009? 2010? oh sorry.. END of 2010? Then devices for their LTE network... mid to late 2011... in 2015 all this wil be a moot point... but I kinda want my phone before I hit 40.

It's baffling, since the most recent Nanos have a camera. Although I think it's video-only and not still, which is also dumb.

If you have a more current cellphone with a camera and Bluetooth, you can probably take pics, zap 'em over to the Touch, and then mail 'em out. Pain in the ass, I know, but...

I didn't understand that move at all. Made no sense whatsoever.

For some people, it probably should have a webcam type of camera. I'm not that kind of user, though. I don't webchat and never have.
