    I love the Evo 4G. I was just wishing the other day that I could have the same phone with a faster CPU and GPU combo. Obviously someone else was thinking similarly but where is the kickstand? The kickstand was one of the best features of the Evo in my opinion. I guess that opinion is not widely held. Reply

    I'm glad you're please then. Just bear in mind, Sprint has already announced transition away from WiMax. I imagine that this phone will be well supported throughout the 2 year contract you'd be signing yourself into, and indeed I bet they will offer you mighty large discounts on their LTE phones to make the switch before the end of that contract. A friend of mine was offered his choice of smartphone, I believe it was with Sprint, several years back, if he would give up his StarTAC. He finally gave in, moments after dropping his StarTAC in the toilet and finding himself unwilling to pay the prices eBayers sought for the phone that had long since become something of a collector's item. Good luck and enjoy the phone.

    I have the Thunderbolt on Verizon and do find the kickstand rather nice. While charging I can prop the phone up into portrait mode and leave it there as an alarm clock. while taking up less space than placing flat down on the desk.

    I just don't like that HTC seems to drag their feet at releasing software updates for their recent phones while focusing too much time rehashing something similar every month (it seems).

    New phones generate sales. Updated software doesn't. It's that simple. It'll be interesting to see what the likes of HTC do with ICS, it'd be nice if there skins exist as removable layers, more like Windows skins of the 90's, but it's unlikely. Instead we'll probably have the same issues we have now.
    Either way, enjoy your TB!
