    hehe that's the standard Transformer ;) His price is ridiculously high. It isn't hard to find a new Transformer for 330$ and a keyboard for 99~129$. Used/Like New should be under 400$ for the combo and 300$ just the Tablet and 100 for the keyboard, both shipped

    I just got a htc sensation, It has S-off and a custom rom with the cpu at 1.5ghz, and a 4.3" 540x960/16:9 screen,its a very nice phone indeed.

    Very similar to the Droid Incredible 2 but with 4G, very nice. I bet you love it.

    I think it's more similar to my phone, the Rezound. Actually, from what I read it's a slightly downgraded rezound. If that's true, it's got to be good. My Rezound is great now that I have one without the audio feedback problem. Just can't wait for the ICS upgrade.

    Either way all 3 are nice. I can't wait for March to get here when I can get my 2 year discounts again.

    Its running a custom 2.3.4 gbread rom, there are a few ICS based roms but they're not brilliant. This is the rom thats on it, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=14191938&postcount=1

    Yup i do love it, the screen size/rez makes browsing real nice, and it has full flash support too.

    If you phone supports flash, have a look here- http://www.kongregate.com/

    I have spent ages on here.

    Also i can plug my usb in and use the connection on my pc for the phone, such a useful thing.

    It has a MHL port too so it can output full hd movies to a tv and use DLNA to wirelessy stream to a tv too.

    Full spec is here- http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_sensation-3875.php

    The fiance is dying to get her hands on my DInc, and keeps insisting I go in Feb to get my 2-year upgrade, so she can have the DInc. Not really inclined to upgrade, enjoying my phone. But, assuming I lose the battle (a pretty good bet), any preferences? I like the sensation, but I'm a verizon user...

    First off, are you into rooting? Like HTC Sense?

    Mine's rooted, but I never got around to doing more than unlocking it, and installing a couple of root apps. I did a lot more with my old HTC-8125, custom roms, etc, but just really didn't with the DInc ;)

    I know I am keeping my eye on Thunderbolt, DInc2, & Droid Bionic. I have no plans of moving to 4g. If the Rezound gets cheap enough I will be getting one though. Gnex won't be dropping to a reasonable price when I am ready to upgrade I know that much.

    I suggest staying away from the Droid Razr if you LOVE rooting only due to its nonremovable battery. I had done many many battery pulls on my OG Droid it's pathetic.

    Got no need, desire, or reason to go 4G, and definitely not for the increased price. I'm just hoping we stay grandfathered in on the unlimited data plans when we DO update... I do like the dual core of the Rezound, but it's a bit too much, I think. Don't like paying that much for a phone ;(

    They don't seem to be very consistent with who gets grandfathered in and who doesn't...I got an X2 in June before the plan changes and was told that if I change my phone it will not get the unlimited plan.

    I have been snooping around Tmobile shop looking at phones. Even though we don't get out of contract until SEPT, Its always good to check out the phones they offer.

    paying 5$ / month first 10 months and 25$ afterwards (garanteed for life price) for unlimited talk text data

    That's what you call bargain hunting. Most people here pay 30$/month just for 6GB data

    We're paying...$110, 2 lines, unlimited data, no text plan... standard minutes, don't remember, I think it's 1000 between the two lines. I'm an IT geek, so I want my unlimited data.

    I'm looking at the Bionic... Not a big Motorola fan, REALLY an HTC fan, but Verizon's kinda limited on their HTC offerings right now... Anyone seen/played with one yet?

    I thought i found an app from Alldatasheet and I was very happy until it turned out it was just a link to the homepage. :(

    It's a Galaxy Gio btw, €120 and very well worth it.
