    AMOLED vs TFT LCD

    AMOLED displays are far superior than TFT LCD but I think this was chosen made to lower the cost of the handset and prolong battery life. I don't think we will be that bad but here is were AMOLED wins against the TFT LCD.

    True Color and High Resolution
    Readability under/in sunlight
    Viewing Angle

    By no means is this a reason to pass on buying this phone. But I don think people would of had a problem with a couple extra bucks for a top of the line display.

    I have been reading up on this a bit more and I don't think there is enough information yet to make a call on whether this is AMOLED or TFT LCD.

    In this video at exactly 3:00, some representative (from Sprint or HTC?) specifically says that the display is a 4.3" TFT display and NOT AMOLED :

    http://developer.sprint.com/site/glo...id/android.jsp
    I also found this link in a thread on androidcentral.com which is a Sprint developers site that states the following:

    Display
    Type: amoled captive multi-touch
    Size: 4.3 inches wga
    Resolution: 800x480 (WVGA)
    HDMI output: YES

    I guess the verdict is still out on this issue unless someone else has anything to add.

    completely WRONG... AMOLED - as used on the Nexus - is absolutely HORRIBLE in bright sunlight... the screen is practically useless... even at 100% brightness, can hardly read it... the problem is that AMOLED does not have a reflective back layer... with TFT, you can view it in direct sunlight... i had an iphone 3GS and a Blackberry 9700... both TFT and both were EXCELLENT in direct sunlight... in fact, you could have brightness set to minimum and still read it... because the TFT screen has a reflective property - the sunlight actually acts like the backlight...

    Man i would allmost packup and move to tha US to get and use this device....!!
    It may have GSM ? For Roaming ? if 3G/HSPA we all know it would be crap 2100 And Not 850/1900

    When will they stop toying with us?

    I Really hope to see this, HTC Desire or Tha HTC HD2 with NA HSPA (850/1900 of course)!!!


    Allthough i guess i could get tha T-mobile HD2 and use it on WindMobile in canada as they have AWS 1700...

    This phone is definitely on my radar. I had the original iphone when it came out, then the 3G (still my current). I skipped the 3GS and I'll be a free agent this summer when all the new hotness hits.
    I won't have any qualms about leaving ATT when the time comes. I only left Sprint before (years ago) because of the asstasticly horrible customer service, but I've heard it has gotten better in the past few years.

    I'm still interested in checking out whatever new iphone might come along, but as someone said here already, I'm sure the changes will be lackluster compared to something like this.

    I'm concerned about getting this device as I'm on MetroPCS and they're going to LTE, not WiMax. This is a downer for me as all my MPCS phones have been re-flashed Sprint devices and this phone is stupid powerful. Though with my wife clamoring to have my TouchPro 2, it may happen yet.
