Great webcast guys! The intel CPU sounds pretty impressive, I really like the low energy technology. It gets me excited about upcoming mobile devices. The flash topic seems really interesting, it's a bit over my head but I'm glad they found out the problem early so they can research new things. Nice transition to the Droid lol! I have to say, longer battery life is great. I got the extended battery for my Rezound and its awesome even though its a brick now! The Maxx looks like it has a nice design for it's larger battery. Like Iyaz said, the larger screens make for a larger case, fill the extra room with more battery. Always bringing the great contests, love it!! Did you guys see the omap 5 testing? I'm excited for that bad boy to be released. Playboy.com/hothardware LOL!

Now you're just mashing it!

Flash memory is awesome but I would never store data that is not replaceable on it. Once it dies it dies there is no recovering information off the drives.

Emm.. I smell ASUS Transformer Prime(s) on the giveaway block lol.

HH gem of the day: "It's not like it's so heavy that it'll make your pants fall down."

Love these shows!
