nice display! In fact, I can tell from the viewing angles & the colour rendering it's an AMOLED unit. Perfect

It probably gt onto other countries besides Taiwan, maybe it has parts required from that country or it is sent for testing.

is not smooth because is running a live wallpaper in the background and kills a lot of memory.

This is recorded somewhere in Balkan, since there is Serbian music playing in background. Serbia or Croatia..

This new HTC Ville reminds me of the HTC Sensation mainly for the hardware design, focusing on the software I believe this HTC Sense 4.0 looks nice and fantastic (by far this is the best looking Smartphone), but for some reason I'm not impressed with this new UI, but like I said on both Hardware (HTC Ville) and on Software (Android ICS and HTC Sense 4.0) this is the best looking Android ICS Smartphone.

I believe as well that this would be the new smartphone that HTC will be presenting on the MWC2012.

This is NOT THE FINAL BUILD VERSION, Windows phone/Android/IOS all go through a BETA testing stage before being released to the market, so what you see here is prone to lag.

Why do you think Sony Ericsson and the rest delay releases, to IRON OUT bugs from Beta to fully working production ready models.

HTC does not still have a flagship series. Like Samsung Galaxy S, LG Optimus Series. They should make "Desire" phone as their Flagship. Just to create interest and some spark going around..

"Smooth"? Where? My single-core Xperia neo is smooth, this is obviously rushed out the door. The guy is controlling the phone very slowly and each time it takes about half a second to respond.

And again, I don't really care about whatever those geeky numbers mean. Me and most of the buyers just care that the phone is fast which is for sure will be.

Yet, you state one fact against many others that I posted in my post.

This Htc Ville uses a Snapdragon Krait S4 CPU. more specifally the MSM8960 1.5GHz dual core, which it is 60% more powerful than the Snapdragon S3 dual core at 1.5GHz used in the Sony Ion, more the Adreno 225 GPU which has 50% more performance that the Adreno 220 GPU which it is the GPU of the Snapdragon S3 dual core of the Ion.
