You can't stop the Beats!  Verizon's launching the HTC Rezound, the first Beats by Dr. Dre handset to land in the United States.  Rezound will be available on November 14th for $299.99, and offers a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 4.3-inch 720p HD (Super LCD) display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 1,620 mAh battery, 4G LTE connectivity, and Android 2.3.4 with HTC Sense 3.5. 

It's another high-end 4G device on Verizon and comes with a great pair of Beats earbuds, but it packs a small battery and faces competition from the Motorola DROID RAZR and Samsung Galaxy Nexus.  Is it the winning device this holiday season?

Art Rathbun HTC Rezound all the way. I have a Motorola Photon and it reboots by itself all the time. So many bugs and Motorola wont even admit theres a problem with there hardware/software. Im going back to HTC. Forget Motorola.

Ramiah Deeron Davis I been a big fan of Motorola for a while now and it seems Too me that after the Droid 2 the glitches in software. Just got insane I just traded a bionic for a razr tho and the performance is so much better once the bionic glitches are patched more people would want it I am one that's also waiting on the quad core phones tho

Mackenzie Davis Schemel Rezound! Motorola UI is always laggy and has a boxy look. HTC sense just seems to have a much better look and overall response.
