HTC Inspire 4G

A leaked ad shows the HTC Inspire 4G. The 4G looks like it will be HSPA+ but if T-Mobile can do it, I suppose AT&T might as well claim it. Looks like it will most likely have a 4.3" screen with sense so that will make it amazing. The only thing that would make me not purchase this would be whether or not it is going to be a dual-core phone. The Motorola Olympus looks good (minus Motoblur) so this will be tough decision. I have been waiting for well over a year for a good Android phone and I thought the Olympus might be it but now the decision looks a bit more complicated.

On phonedogs review of the Desire HD, (same as Inspire) that when the phone is set down, the camera lens is what rests on the surface.

Doesn't that seem like it would scratch the camera lens...? Besides, I never set my phone down on a hard surface. I have a fear that it will get scratched on the bottom.

Re: HTC Inspire 4G

That was the complaint about it laying on the camera lens...scratching it up. Personally, the inspire is uninspiring. The 1ghz Snapdragon processor has been in phones for a year, or longer, companies are moving to faster ones such as the 1.2ghz for the infuse, and the Atrix will have the dual core IntegraII. Again, personally, I will avoid the 1ghz phones because they will be out dated in a few months. But, same with any phone I suppose. The Atrix will probably be "old" come September. But by then, I'll have another upgrade available on my account. My wife is right...I AM a phone junkie!

Haven't seen the Desire HD in person.  But if its anything like the Desire Z, the lens has a metal "rim" around the glass, which protrudes to that the glass does not touch anything when the phone is laid on a flat surface.

Lol, was there ever really any doubt on that?

I watched a review of it on Phonedog. They didn't mention a rim, would make better sense if it did though.

No...no doubt. Just finally recognizing my addiction. A cure should be just around the corner. Although, I am getting a bad case of the shakes...Ive had this i4 for nearly 3 months...I need an Android fix!

The first step is admitting you have a problem, LOL!

 

Spending over $600 on an unlocked Desire Z probably qualifies me, as well.

Re: HTC Inspire 4G

I'm guilty of that...paid $500 for the first unsubsidized iPhone and $567 after taxes for the N1. Usually, I can get at least what I pay when I resale. Took a hit on the N1 though. Can't go wrong when I resale these subsidized iPhones...use them for a few months, and usually get close to double my money back.

I hit "post" on accident.

The money made on the sale of this i4 will buy me an Inspre or Atrix. I'm leaning toward the Atrix though.

Re: HTC Inspire 4G

The Desire HD has the rim around it just like the Desire and the Desire Z does, I have seen all three, I own the Desire and the Desire Z, and as for Phone Junkie how about $1264.00 in the span of four months, that is what my two phone's set me back!!!

Re: HTC Inspire 4G

Im praying its coming before the VZ Ip4 is released. Ive been drooling over the Desire hd specs & wonderin when ATT will FINALLY give it to us. Ive been with ATT for 13 years,and have been a WM user forever. I just returned a SSfocus. WP7 was VERY disappointing. Its sad to see WMOS screwing thingsup. I love HTC. Looks like its time to give Android a try. The only thing thatll make me giveup on HTC,is if they release the Infuse first! Screen size does matter to me. Not to mention that SuperAmoledPlus killerdisplay. Cmon ATT......dont keepus waitin!

Me too, drooled over Desire. Im also a big HTC fan. I liked their phone designs and how most of their earlier sets were built the way i like a phone.  I dont like the too-thin, plasiticy toy feel even thought the sleekness is really nice.  But id rather 'feel' the solidity of a phone like the Tilt (both 8925 and Tilt 2).  im a WM guy for years too but looks like we're being squeezed into moving to WP7 or Android. (i think id rather go android over WP7

Re: HTC Inspire 4G

Anyone given the choice of freedom (android),or restrictive (WP7),would certainly go with Android. Ive never owned an Android phone,but from what I see,its a freindlyer system. WP7 is certainly a refined system but way too clampedown by someone. Letsgo ATT. Im dyin for oneodem Inspire/Infuze! Whats the holdup?

The hold up, I would guess, is that AT&T needs to develop and test their new 4G netowork in at least one place before these new 4G devices can be released. They're probably working on it right now...

 

The term HTC Inspire "4G" wouldn't be quite the same if there was no 4G available. Smiley Wink

 

Yep, I'm likin' this phone just as much as you. It's pretty sweet.

Re: HTC Inspire 4G

I dought theres much testing thats needed. I think the + in HSPA+ is upgrading from coaxial to fiberoptics on the 3G towers. They probably wanna get that as widespread as possible. Im already noticeing faster downloads here in NYC. But I hope theres still a fiberoptic/+ upgrade comin tomy tower!

Re: HTC Inspire 4G

Funny fact...

 

at&t released free Wi-Fi to it's customers in the NYC area to help take some of the bandwidth off of their mobile network in that area.  So, say your in a popular NYC area (say Herald Sq.) and your trying to use your phone for internet stuff but noticed it's slow, switch to Wi-Fi.  Chances are you'll find an at&t hot spot close to you.
