I'll almost certainly get the Evo, and voted accordingly...but the scientist in me needs to point out that a poll conducted in the Evo subforum is unlikely to offer anything even remotely like an unbiased sample of users. Most people reading this subforum are here because they are at least considering buying an Evo.

I want to see the size of the EVO - I played with the HD2 and it seems a bit unwieldy. I also am considering the Nexus One, but it needs to be added to a family plan (which is doubtful).
If neither of those pans out, I may grab the Legend if it comes to Sprint.

I will definitely be considering the Evo, but as an early adopter of the Pre, I really want to see what Palm is going to come up with. I also want to see what else is coming along. With Sprint starting to push 4G, there are sure to be several more new devices coming along. If something else is coming along with similar specs to the Evo and a physical keyboard, I may go that route.

I think the real point of the thread was to elicit comments on why people would choose the Evo over the other options.
I'd be open to getting the N1, since it's not saddled with Sense, but the Wimax, native tethering, and screen size of the Evo are a bigger draw. Eventually Cyanogen will have a Senseless ROM for the Evo, and as long as I can turn off the home screen in the interim, I'll live. I'm not on Verizon, so the Incredible is out of the running, and I've never been interested in the iPhone's walled garden. I prefer prosumer platforms like Android or WM (not WP7).

The 4.3" screen and kickstand is a unique feature I'm also looking forward too. We travel west and stay in cabins and there is no TV there; however how nice would the huge screen be on a table next to you while you watch a movie or two! EVO... FTW!
Lastly, I will say I do miss how lively the precentral.net camp was... I don't see much of that on these forums... I wonder why... am I just on the wrong forum... I'm as green behind the ear as anyone new to Android so please if you could, point me in the right direction, thanks guys!

rufflez thats not what i meant, I meant from PR stand point it be a good thing, thats all what i am saying. I am sure Apple is making its own decision on where to go LTE or WiMax. It be funny cause VZW is making big deal with Apple but Apple has yet to say something in return to VZW, it be funny if Apple surprises everyone and says iPhone 4G for Sprint 4G. Thats all, makes sense from PR stand point, if this going to happen I dont think so, but nice to think about.

That said, as far as custom UIs go, you could do a lot worse than Sense. I'm not completely against it. I just wish that HTC allowed it to be disabled in the user settings rather than requiring users to replace the ROM. It's inconvenient, but not fatal.

Anyway...doesn't matter. Here's the deal with me right now...
The longer Verizon waits to release the N1 or the Incredible, the more I'm leaning toward waiting another 8 weeks or so for the Evo. Heck, I've been waiting since what, January (?) for the N1 on Verizon so what's another few weeks for the hottest phone on the planet?
In the meantime, I'll just keep on using my Pay As You Go phone until June 13.
