If the phone comes with a SD card and removable battery, it would be the perfect phone, if not I will go for Note II.

  • digitizer for all?

can a digitizer pen be bought seperately and used with any device with a touchscreen, or does the devics has to be especially and originally designed for this purpose?

1080p on a smartphone gives a pixel density of 441ppi and not 480ppi.

480 maybe software (standard) ppi used in Android, not a hardware ppi itself.

Whats the point of such high pixel count when you wont be able to see it working because the batterys dead all the time? Hope they do an awsome battery low indicator as this is all you will be staring at! Ooh an awsome 450+ ppi battery low indicator - just what weve all been waiting for! LOL LOL LOL!

  • lol what?

I believe these full HD packing gadgets are going to be really unstable devices & Snapdragon S4 Pro is just being used to push so many pixels. I am still waiting to see someone step up & come up with real use of the Snapdragon S4 Pro except powering such high pixel count. There are still not many apps which push the Exynos Quadcore (or its equivalent Krait Dualcore) to its limits, let alone the Quadcore Krait. What about the battery efficiency? Heating issues? Stability & durability? Exceptionally breath taking on paper but what's the real use for consumer? I would love to have a device rocking a printed magazine pixel density of 450 ppi but not at the cost of battery & stability. We are heading towards interesting times.

No expansion for memory card = DOA

Cue the arguments of "who needs expansion anyway"

Battery also needs to be up there with the Note and RAZR MAXX or back to the drawing board.

AND HTC sort out your reception issues!
