Another big disappointment is they still use off screen navigation, when 4.0 supports on screen just fine (after using the nexus 7 I prefer on screen navigation).

Wow. You might be the first person I've ever heard say that! Wink

But I know HTC's answer from a direct conversation with their head designers. They feel that on-screen Android controls are a waste of valuable screen area. They basically never change, so why waste pixels on them? Why not give you more screen to see more stuff? That's their position.
