Re: ATT version hands on.
My big concern is how I use my current phone. The Epic 4G, for the longest time, has been the PERFECT phone. The screen + the video codecs means I can use it to play movies while I'm at work. it will play any movie I throw on it. I usually catch up on my TV shows this way. I use every single bit of my 32GB SD card as well.
I know Samsung has been the only phone manufacturer to actually include the video codecs that it does. Usually to play h.264 MKV movies on phones, you have to convert them first. Not on Galaxy phones though. I also love the slideout keyboard.
Now I'm probably moving to the One X which has no storage space, probably no video codecs, and no slideout keyboard. There are NO decent phones with keyboards anymore so I've come to terms with that. Just worried about how I'll be able to use my phone to play movies going forward.
I'm sure there are adapters that allow you to use SD cards though. I have one for my tablet. When I went on vacation with my wife a few months ago, I loaded up all kinds of TV shows onto an SD card, plugged it into my tablet with my adapter, and we were able to watch them that way. It's not ideal... as having that adapter sticking out isn't always practical, but it will probably alleviate some of my misgivings about storage space when it comes to media. Just need to see if there is an adapter for micro USB slots.
Still can't wait to get my hands on it though... only way to know if I really want it or not.
