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.

A Google-only version of the S4 sounds intriguing.

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.
