    So, upon doing some research, I discovered that the Inspire 4G won't have a kickstand. This threw me for a loop. I know the EVO 4G has it, but the Desire HD lacks it. This is a bummer for me, but not a deal breaker. Anyone else a little bummed about the lack of the kickstand on this device?

    Because this is an exact replica of the Desire HD AT&T just added more memory and a Super LCD but other than that same phone

    I also noticed that this has no kickstand and no front facing camera. Not deal breakers for me, either. I just have to ask myself how much I am willing to pay Verizon for slower speeds and less service.... I will have some hard choices to make when Verizon announces how much they think LTE is worth...

    It's not a dealbreaker for me. It would be nice though. It seems really easy to put on. I wonder why they didn't do it.

    Honestly, we don't really need a kickstand on phones.

    My hands work just fine. If you get to the point where the phone become a burden to hold, you should probably start working out.

    i guess because of the way the Inspire is designed. kickstands on the Evo/Thunderbolt are possible because of that one piece battery cover they have.
    but i guess designers couldve found a way to fit a kickstand on the Inspire. but i wouldn't know.. haha

    The point of the kickstand is so that you can watch videos with the phone on a counter or table while you do other things with you hands.

    There is nothing about a kickstand that even makes me want one. If i'm going to watch something on my phone for that long, then I'll just use my computer.

    There was a press release last month that Jerry did about Smartphone Coasters that work as a kickstand. I bought a few and really like them, have one next to my computer and one upstairs next to my bed.

    Does anyone know of a case that has a kickstand built in?

    Its only $99 at most places. Seems like they tried keeping the price down so no kick stand. No big deal

    I must disagree with ya bud!

    The kickstand on my Evo is such a valuable feature!
    While watching a movie,youtube,Sprint TV,video chatting,
    and even browsing the net the kickstand makes for an almost
    hands free device!

    If there are any cases for the Inspire that comes with a kickstand?
    Even a horizontal dock will do!

    I would recommend getting one in a heart beat!
