After a few weeks of development on the HTC Inspire 4G, the developers found out that software on the Desire HD can be run on the Inspire 4G without any modification. This means that, when you develop a ROM for the Desire HD, it can run on the Inspire 4G, and vice-versa. XDA member gunnyman suggested to merge the forums, because why would we have two different forums if the software is the same? It looks pretty obvious that merging the forums would be the best option, but there is still some discussion going on, as there are some members who state it would be better to keep the forums as they are now.
I agree. It would be much easier for the DEVS, which is more important. They wouldnt have to maintain 2 different threads for the same ROM, Theme or Kernel as well..
Keep in mind even though they are pretty much the same phone, they run on different networks, have different radio software, and are supported by different cell providers. People’s experiences will be different than their European counterparts.
I think the time is not right yet for a conjoined forum. Right now, there are a number of great ROMs for DHD that install easily and run without issues. This is not the case yet for the I4G. I think we need to wait until that happens, then we can merge the DHD & I4G forums, breaking out the carrier specific issues in the General section.
So, what do you think? Join the discussion in the thread!
Do you remember how excited we all got when the new members of the Desire family hit the shelves? The Desire HD in particular ended up being a sure fire hit. As it turns out, the Desire HD now has a brother, which was announced at CES this past month. The HTC Inspire 4G includes the ability of connecting to AT&T’s HSPA+, which would allow it to blaze through the interwebs. This is one of the much anticipated devices that were announced at CES as this will be one of AT&T’s entry points into the 4G wars. The remaining specs for this device are similar (and as impressive) as the Desire HD.
Do you have any goodies from this one yet? Maybe some info on pricing, availability, or maybe you got your hands on one already. If so, why don’t you share this with us?
