    Hmmm, that's an interesting question. I considered using this as my mp3 player, but I didn't take the sound quality into account. I haven't heard anything specific on this subject.

    Way to make me think :S but +1

    I was wondering this myself.... mostly because it has a large metal kickstand blocking the speaker. Sound would have to travel through the kickstand and any table it's sitting on for you to hear it ringing.

    I have watched every video on youtube from CES, and I must say, even with all the loud background noise, I could still hear the TB's sound during the "demo" video thy kept playing. And in one video the guy asked the representative to turn the phone all the way up to hear the quality, and it did seem loud, and the filmer said it sounded good.

    So yes, we haven't heard it yet. But Honestly, I think the speaker in my droid1 sounds great. So a year later and with a "dolby" logo, it's gotta sound even better than that?

    Well see! On the 11th???

    How does the EVO sound? It's got to be along those same lines.

    If I see another "its just a Verizon EVO" I am going to blind my self out of desperation... to take a line form the social network "If Verizon was going to have an EVO it would the EVO". In short there similar in many ways but not the same.
    Damn_Smooth and aggie like this.

    LOL,C'mon it's not that bad. I know what you mean but in this case I would think the EVO would be a good comparison.

    I uunderstand the evo comparisons. 4.3 inch screen, kickstand. But it's more of a desire HD on steroids. IMO the design of the phone is that desire like. Sure it has features from the evo. But no speaker behind stand. No sense 2 Cause if htc makes anything with a 4.3 inch screen people that have the Evo will just hate an say it's just another evo. Sure it was first. But so were cavemen. An look at us now

    I forgot the EVO doesn't have a rear speaker behind the kickstand. But I've never used an EVO before so I don't know how well the speakerphone works for playing music and video.

    So can anybody explain this for me.... what exactly does Dolby and SRS do for a phone's sound system? Can it really make that much difference on a phone speaker?

    Probably not a whole lot. What it means is that the manufacturer (htc) paid for a Dolby "certification" on their hardware. Which means Dolby "checked" it, approved it, and allowed htc to use the name "Dolby" as a selling point. What the spec requirements for such a certification are, I have no idea.

    The Dolby name still carries value or status, and while I am not going to say this speaker will be awesome I also think Dolby hasn't sold themselves out for quick cash yet. There is a lot of potential, if you get a bad speaker take it back and get a new replacement. In the world of electronics and mass production stuff happens and not every device off the mfg line is perfect.

    I mean the internal amperage for headphones. i guess it is associated with speaker but who the hell listens to the speaker on their phone as a stand alone stereo? maybe watching movies. lol i am talking wearing headphones as mp3 player.

    I listen to music thru my Curve 8330's speakerphone all the time. Sounds very good and loud considering the source. The Bold 9000 has 3 or 4 speakers and sounds even better. I hate headphones so speakerphone quality is important issue to me.

    My belief is that it will be in par with all HTC phones.
