    I find it interesting that you guys keep talking up HTC. My wife had an HTC inspire not too long ago and the voice quality was dismal. Apart from that there was nothing that stood out about it, good nor bad.

    As someone who will be making their first plunge into the smart phone realm soon, I'm really only concerned with voice quality. Everything else is just icing on the cake for me. That being said voice quality seems to be something that is generally glossed over in most reviews. At most it gets a "yeah I called someone and they said my voice sounded like this or that."

    I've never had a Samsung device give me outstanding voice quality either, of course that was with models from quite a few years ago. With all this positive talk, you guys have me second guessing my initial write off of anything HTC.

    Can anyone give me input on whether voice quality has improved for Samsung devices over the years or HTC since the days of the inspire?

    I forgot to mention, your latest podcast is excellent work as usual. It makes a few of my commutes substantially less painful. Thank you.

    I cannot answer your question, but I'd be really curious if you could ping back in a couple of months if you still think voice quality is the most important factor in purchasing a smartphone. I suspect your usage model is going to change dramatically after switching from a featurephone.

    With AMD supposedly providing the GPU for all 3 next gen consoles and the CPU for 2 of the 3, one thing I haven't heard discussed at all is the effect this is going to have on AMD's bottom line. They've got to be getting a huge licensing/royalty stream from this, right? Right?

    I love the podcast, but the random interval is making me mental. How about once a week for 3 hours? Posts on Friday, which is normally slow for you guys. Am I asking too much?

    Love the Podcast, but this 6 week hiatus is driving me nuts!! Could you do a regular schedule of once every 2 weeks?
