3.6 inch screen? No 4g? No FFC? No 5-row keyboard? It seems like the phone will be obsolete by the time it comes out.

First, that's partly about Microsoft, not HTC. HTC can't do anything about the things the OS doesn't support, like video chat and 4G.

It may not be the best answer, but what Microsoft would tell you is that they're starting from behind, and doing their best to catch up. Apple and Google had a lot of missing features when their platforms launched, but at this point, they've had quite a head-start on Microsoft since Microsoft started from scratch with Windows Phone 7.

Microsoft is busy adding new features and catching up, but if they'd focused on adding video chat and 4G, they might not be able to also get copy-and-paste and multi-tasking out this year.

4"+ is too big. i want a phone that fits into my pocket, not a tablet.

4g is overrated. i have never once thought "oh man, this mobile site is loading soooo slow" on my 3g phone. plus the vast majority of wimax users all turn it off, it drains the battery faster than anything and the service is super spotty with limited range.

it does have a 5-row keyboard. in fact, i'm pretty sure it's the only modern phone on there with that.

It may have the five row keyboard but Like he said the OS is not ready still has alot of work to do and phone looks too heavy. But there are phones already here with dual core and 1.2 as opposed to the 1 mhz. 3.6 is to small in my opinion. should have gone with 4 in todays market.

My mistake on the keyboard, but the TP2 had a 5 row and that was a thousand years ago. I don't think 4g is overrated at all. Most users do keep it off, but its nice to have the option. Believe it or not, i was in a building that had no 3g coverage the other day, but it had 4g and I was able to put it on on my Evo and use it. Didn't make sense to me but it happened.

Unless you're a woman, or wear skinny jeans, there is no way a 4 inch plus phone it too big. I have and otter box on my evo and still pocket it. i don't wear baggy pants either. 4 inches at least should be the standard. I will NEVER purchase a phone with a smaller screen and i know a lot of people that would agree.

I'm not saying its a bad phone, but I think they left ...
