    Great.
    I said that when I got my Incredible in May of last year, now I cant wait for a new phone :p
    I love my phone still, no doubt, but they always like to dangle something new and shinny in front of me :)

    Naviculture, I see you've now had both the Inspire and the Atrix. So, which one do you like better? I'm asking, because I've been waiting for the Atrix to come out for months now with my heart set on it, but I just got back from Walmart where they have a working model of both phones. For some strange reason, I almost like the Inspire more :dft006:unhappy Please convince me otherwise! :dft012:wink

    LOL - I was ALL set with the Atrix today, I took it to work, and used it all day.

    I get home, and start playing with the Inspire, and now I can't make my bloody mind up! Without question, the Atrix is FASTER. And overall seems better. We do have to remember the Inspire is old hardware; pure and simple...

    At this rate, I'll probably keep the Atrix. But, of course, only time will tell...

    PS: I do wish I could zoom, and focus properly with the camera on the Atrix. Maybe I just don't know how to use\do it...

    Ha! It's funny you say that, bc I one of the things that disappointed me about the Atrix is that I was having a lot of trouble with that same thing as well as overall touchscreen reaction. I'm a 3GS user, so when I went to the internet and tried to zoom in, I pinched in and out like on my iPhone, but it didn't zoom; it made the screen go all over the place and do really strange things. It was very annoying :dft007:angry I did eventually realize that it responds way better by barely touching the screen. It is really fast though.
    Like you said, I really like the screen size of the Inspire, and I think I like HTC's UI better than Motorola :dft002:zombie Hopefully, I don't get lynched for saying that! :dft012:wink

    Agreed camera is mediocre at best. HTC cameras are much better. My Droid x camera is the exact same. I can't find much to complain about though with the Atrix. I really love it. Just need to decide if I want to keep it or wait for tbolt. Got a feeling once I get a taste of LTE I wont be able to go back. Unlimited LTE at that where as I only get 2gb hspa+ on att. Decisions decisions.

    @aggieman - seriously, I'm just not sure if I'm keeping the Atrix, or the Inspire. Sad really...

    Well, one thing I am glad for is that I am grandfathered in on the Unlimited data, so I don't have to worry about that. BUT, I do have to wonder if I would still need the tethering plan for the dock if I already have unlimited....

    Imo the inspire is already an outdated device. Nice but outdated. When the Atrix gets an update to a build of android that is actually optimized to take advantage of the dual cores it should be a beautiful thing. This device isn't even scratching the surface of its full potential.

    Well, if you decide to keep the Atrix, I may be interested in your HTC ;)

    After almost a full week with the atrix im still in love with this phone. I liked the inspire but battery life front camera really did it in for me and when I looked at it everything seems to be moving to dual core so didn't want a phone that will be out of date once updates start rolling out. Im hoping this phone will last me a few years
