    Droid DNA's front-facing camera has an 88 degree wide angle so no one is left out, he says.

    With Sense 4.0, there's better face detection, smile capture, and HDR, he says.

    Erwin says Droid advertising draws back on original Droid elements -- a big campaign positioning this as flagship product for the holidays.
  • Roger Cheng 11/13/2012 4:25:44 PM
    Well, HTC needed a big device, and this might be it.
  • Roger Cheng 11/13/2012 4:25:56 PM
    We think it's poised to be a blockbuster in the holiday and 2013, Erwin says.
