Having a tough time deciding too

I really wanted to go with a Nexus, but am afraid the LTE is too much better to pass up.
Will be watching this thread with interest!
I had been 100% on getting the Galaxy Nexus when it launches later this month, but the new Evo LTE looks really cool, so now I'm not sure which to go with.
The Evo has a better camera - that's one of the features I love about the regular Evo 4G. Looks like it'll have better sound quality as well with the HD sound. But the problems with the USB ports breaking on the motherboard of the Evo has been a real hassle for me, I'm very gentle with my phone and I've had two where the USB port has come loose/stopped working. I wonder if the USB port has been redesigned to be more robust on the new Evo LTE? I also don't like the idea of a non-replaceable battery.
Right now I'm on my second Evo 4G with a busted USB port, and the only thing that's saving me is the fact that I can pop out the battery and charge it with an external charger. If it had a non-replaceable battery I'd be hosed.
So...heck I don't know. It'll be one or the other, just not sure yet. I do like the one-click rooting tool that Wug has up over on Androidcentral for the Galaxy Nexus. Very slick.
