PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "What are the chances that we'll see something with the finesse of the One X with stock software down the road? 'The Nexus devices are Google’s lineup,' explains Kodera, 'but in general, we're very proud of HTC Sense, and we'd like to continue shipping it on every device.' Not exactly encouraging." Big letdown. Not unexpected, but a letdown still. I will never again buy a non-Nexus device.

Most, is not all. ;)

After using my wife's LG Eve, my own SE Xperia Pro, and a Motorola Droid4, I honestly don't understand how people can use a portable computer without a hardware keyboard.

It might be mostly tolerable in portrait where losing 300-odd pixels of screen isn't the end of the world. But the same is not true in landscape.

I used my Xperia all the time for server maintenance via Connectbot. Now that I have an Optimus G with a 4.5" screen, Connectbot isn't even installed. It was just too painful to use. And the only reason I have this phone is that it was $25 compared to importing a Droid4 for $200. ;)

My next one will definitely have a keyboard again.
