HTC announces new versions of the Wildfire, Desire and Incredible

Tickle me a little disappointed. Really wanted more from the Incredible refresh. Hell, wanted more from the HTC event in general. Guess I will settle for the Thunderbolt.

There has to be something else, right? I hate being brand loyal (my number one knock on Iphone users), but I was really hoping to go from my Evo to "whatever else HTC did next" and not even blink. But now, maybe it's already time to move on...........

Same/similar single core Snapdragon that they're already using on the old Desire HD, Thunderbolt, and Inspire? Or was the HD using the older gen SoC? Either way, where's the new dual core super phones to compete with the Bionic, the Atrix, the Galaxy S2, and the Optimus 2X? I think the Engadget/Anandtech reviews have proven that battery life is not a real big concern with those and that they do improve the general use of the device even with Froyo (probably more so with GB). HTC's either falling behind or holding back on us, hopefully the latter.

Sprint is my last hope at CTIA to show the Evo 2. Very disappointed at HTC, I was hoping to see some new devices running the dual core 8660 chip. I really didn't expect them to show the Evo 2 here since that is probably Sprint's flagship and they would not want HTC to be announcing it at this event

pretty disappointed to be honest. I was hoping for some dual-core full qwerty keyboard love coming to GB/EU
...might be sticking to the best HTC android device I ever had: HTC DREAM (aka G1)

this is lame!
I love htc but the phones are nearly identitcal to the older versions
So whats the point?!
I guess im getting the galaxy s2...
It looks like the best phone at mwc

And... where is that T-Mo Pyramid.. eh?? eeehh?!?!

We can already get this phone in the US anyway in the form of the MyTouch 4G.. Same CPU and RAM...

Disappointing HTC...Good increase in ram and battery, Bad increase in thickness, only single core cpu and no touchpad.

Samsung & LG's phones are miles ahead. How long do HTC take to develop a device? So long that they are now missing the latest tech it seems:(
