Call me a pessimist, but the leaked HTC Eternity Windows Phone doesn't excite me very much. The specs sound fantastic: a 4.7-inch WVGA Super LCD touchscreen, 8 mega-pixel camera, 1.5GHz processor, 512MB Ram, and 16GB or internal storage. The problem is that these specs sound great for a phone that is out now! Besides the screen, all of the other specs are already available on Android devices, and this will only become more apparent as those devices continue to evolve. Secondly, does anyone actually need a 4.7-inch screen? If you compare the specs to the HD7 (already a large phone) you can see that body of the Eternity has gotten even larger. If this is the best WP7 enthusiasts have to choose from I still may get one come the fall, but my bet is that a Nokia built device will be in my pocket by late this year/early next. What kind of hardware do you want to see in your next Windows Phone?
