Well, I've already said why I don't personally want a 4g phone right now. I am waiting for the technology to get better. It's so new and has tons of room for improvement. As far as my jealously statement. I'm simply jealous because his phone is all around nicer than mine, and I rarely let him have any tech device better or newer than mine. Don't even get me started on his Kindle 3 vs. my Kindle 2. Let's just say he's had a lucky year. I very much prefer HTC sense over the Droid's UI. I think the screen response is far more responsive. The speed is zillions times faster, even when I have wiped my phone out with no extra software bogging it down. I NEVER liked the keyboard on the Droid, which was one of the reasons I chose it over the HTC Droid Eris. I now wish I had gone the HTC route from the beginning. I know that this phone is just a tiny bit upgraded from the original Incredible, and I'm okay with that. Why aren't you? I just don't see the point in trying to change people's minds about purchasing this phone if it's right for them. What does it matter? Not everyone wants or needs the 4g at this time. Nothing wrong with that. And it doesn't matter if I hold out for the Motorola Bionic or the next big thing, as you said, in a few months, something better will come along, as it always does. I'm okay with that too. Had I waited just a few more months for the Incredible, I would have probably chosen IT over the Moto Droid. The interface of HTC Sense is a huge selling point for me now. I have never been a fan of Motorola. I owned the Razr back when it was popular, and had nothing but issues with the reception. I had hoped that their venture into the smart phone industry would improve that. Unfortunately, I've had nothing but reception issues, involving the 3g and regular 1x for the past 6 months. Even the replacement they sent me was having the same issues. I ended up keeping mine since the problem was still there, and the one they sent had a loose slider on it as well. I don't expect my husband to be jealous of my new phone at all. I could get the best phone in the world, and he wouldn't be jealous. Because he's not really into cell phones like me. I use to be one of those people who upgraded their phone at least once a year (just because I could) to get the next best thing, because I am addicted to new technology (cell phones, specifically). I use to really keep up with all the new features and technology. I was constantly shopping for phones, even when I wasn't ready to move on from my current phone. Unfortunately, times have changed and I don't have the money to do so anymore. So I buy the most sensible thing for me, while still getting my technology fix. My husband could care less. I had to talk him into buying a smart phone. He now loves it and uses it more than I do. But mostly to surf the internet. He reads news and sports stories galore. He never has to call me from work anymore to ask "Hey honey, who sang this song?", because his buddy and him have a bet on who's right lol. It's a toy to him. Hell, it's a toy to me too, and I'm going to enjoy it. If I don't like it when I get it (tomorrow), I'll be the first to admit I don't like it. But as I said, if it's even as good as the original Incredible, I'll be thrilled. To sum up, I'm not waiting for anything 4g to come out this year because I don't want something that huge to deal with, and from what I've read, eventually they'll be able to make them smaller and lighter. The Incredible 2 is going to be big enough as it is. I've seen the lineup of phones coming out and rumored to be coming out this year, and nothing has excited me as much as the Thunderbolt. But after handling it, I just don't like it for me. And trust me when I say 4g won't be here anytime soon. I live in an area that is so technologically challenged, we're lucky we have 3g. I have to use Verizon's Mifi for my internet. No cable, satellite sucks, no DSL, no ISDN. So mobile broadband it is. I have also waited as long as I am willing to wait for a new phone. This Droid has got to go before it goes through a window.
And yes, Verizon no longer has New Every Two or annual upgrades. So in 20 months, I get to be excited all over again.
