And this really has nothing to do with the iPhone, but thanks for revealing your bias once again.

They cost "what they do" because Apple has an extremely high markup. They will still make a lot of money selling them for 1/2 price. Anyone who thinks Apple is doing this solely because they "care about their customer's safety" is naive.

If you have read any of Blue's older posts, you would see a pattern of slamming the Android OS and Android phone manufacturers. This despite the fact that many of these phones were very positively received and thoroughly reviewed by professional sites. His posts are more often than not confrontational, in an attempt to draw a response. The very definition of bias.

I doubt if anything already in consumer's hands would need to be replaced, but this is sweet. Apple getting a taste of their own medicine. Perhaps they'll reconsider their Sue-happy strategy.

You've had a hard on against HTC for a few years now, don't you ever get tired of being wrong? HTC makes some great products, but the real loser here is the consumer. Not everyone is in love with Apple vanilla. It's sad that some twisted interpretation of patent laws rather than fair competition in the marketplace can decide our choices.

True enough. But as of now, one of their major selling points is that they neither cap nor throttle.

"Case closed" More like "mind closed" when it comes to any company other than Apple. Fortunately a judge, not you, will have the final say on Apple's whining. :cry: Btw, had a bagel the other say that was round. Maybe the English Muffin companies should file a lawsuit... :lol:

Well I would be happy with that speed, or anywhere near it on my Incredible. In my area if I'm lucky I pull in about 400-500kbps. If 3G lived up to it's potential then I wouldn't complain, but at least 4G will give me some improvement.

No, it's not just you. The sheer ego of people who make statements such as "I told all of you this would happen" is simply amazing. As if we are to believe we're witnessing the Word of God.

Except that Sprint has more Wimax coverage (40M people) than T-Mobile's entire customer base of 33M. Good try though.

Perhaps that's true where you live, but on this planet it's generally acknowledged that Verizon has better coverage.

How's it working? I'm considering an EVO, but not sure if the extra $10 is worth it. Also, one of the Sprint dealers said I could download an Android app to allow wireless tethering w/o needing to pay $30 for the Sprint Mobile Hotspot add-on. Does that sound right?

I agree that BB is another choice. My only point was that the OP's originally headline screaming "$200???" was both inaccurate and inflammatory.

$129.99
Jun 14, 2010, 11:41 AM
in the Article: AT&T Announces HTC Aria forum

Regardless if it's a $100 rebate, it's still only $129.99, not $200 or $229. I think that's a fair price for this phone.

You're right, cause Apple is the one losing sleep over Android!

But wasn't it just a little while ago you were scoffing at HTC phones as nothing but a collection of good specs? And now you quote the iPhone's specs? You can't have it both ways.

Yes, the Android OS updates will slow, but the pace of new phones with new hardware will not, at least not for awhile. Because of the multitude of manufacturers using Android, we're seeing an explosion of new devices with increasing capability. If Apple sticks to their once/year hardware updates, the iPhone will not be top dog for long, assuming this update puts it back in that position.

Well, not really...

but today is Apple's day, so let them enjoy it. Perhaps they'll even have another one in a year or so. Meantime Android will have several in the next couple months. :lol:

"Told you". What are you, 10?? One person's results are statistically irrelevant, especially when presented with such obvious bias. Wait until we get some input from thousands of new EVO users, and then well see how 4G stacks up to 3G

Re: Sure, you *could* skew the numbers. We didn't.
Jun 4, 2010, 9:30 PM
in the Article: 4G Networks Tested: WiMAX vs. HSPA+ forum

Fair enough, but using the average is probably not the best tool for this comparison. The extremes greatly affect the result. I think the median value would be more representative of actual performance.

Should have said "Flawed conclusions" , sorry.
