Re: I'm deploying in a month. What will be out when I return?
At the rate that mobile screen tech is progressing, I would not be surprised to see full 1080p HD screens on these devices being introduced at CES next year. The phones will probable have 2G of ram as apps and Android OS get more sophisticated.

I image companies like Motorola doing something putting 64 GB of storage, but they will miss that 199/299 price point that people like so much... Same thing that happened with the Xoom's 32GB. This is precisely why removable MicroSD should continue to be offered on these phones. Give the user the option to add more memory if he/she so desires. Furthermore, I understand that Cloud does not work everywhere the Military operates, but unfortunately, that is a technical issue that the military will have to address... I'm thinking Satellite tech???
It will have 64gb internal memory (because as nice as the cloud is, it does NOT work in all the places the military works.)
While I agree that there will probably be more phones offered with giant 3000mah + batteries, they will be few and far between by early next year. The fact is that battery tech and size is not making this big of improvement right now. The original Evo had a 1500 mah battery at the time of its release, which was one of the biggest in a smartphone. The latest one will have a 2000 mah battery 2 years after the original's release. Yes batteries are getting bigger in Cell phones, but they will not be at that range by next year. Yes, I am aware that the Droid Razr Maxx currently have a battery bigger than this size, but that is more of an exception than the rule.
3000mhz minimum battery, and will feature actual stereo speakers (on the back in landscape mode)
Stereo Speakers? Nope. Mobile devices are meant to be personal (read ear buds) not personal boom boxes. I can see this coming to tablets, but not phones. Besides, there isn't much demand for this. I could be wrong.
Then you are in the minority my friend. The market has spoken on this issue and the verdict is THIN IS IN... Ask Apple and Samsung. HTC is just now getting the message, shortly after Motorola received it loud and clear. This is the direction that future smartphones are headed.
I honestly do not care about the thinness, but hopefully around the same thickness as a Droid Charge.
Agreed, but check out this new phone Nokia just released: Nokia announces 808 PureView: Symbian Belle, 4-inch display, 41-megapixel camera! (hands-on video) -- Engadget
The camera won't have more than 10mp, but will be better engineered to not suck ***.
It has a friggin 40 mp camera!!!!! Could it be a game changer? I doubt it, but this is where we are headed.
