    Android Studio is a big deal for developers. So is Alpha and Beta testing. My major hope is still for a Motorola announcement. Sent from my Android phone on the HTF App!

    I'm tied up in a meeting can't really keep up. Looks like nothing major unexpected yet. Android studio looks cool.

    Sure if you don't mind spending $650 and being stuck on AT&T or Tmobile.

    I don't regard being on Tmobile as being "stuck". The phone being $650 (Apple charges the same price for an unsubsidized Iphone) doesn't imply that buying a subsidized phone would be cheaper. In fact, if I bought a subsidized "cheaper" phone from ATT or Verizon, I'd wind up paying a whopping $1350 to $1710 MORE over 3 years than I would by buying this S4 and sticking with my Tmobile plan. I could buy almost THREE new phones with that.
