Default Need advice on new phone

I have a little dilemma. I have had this my touch 4g for a while now and love it. I am currently rooted running ics on my phone. The fact that I am a flashaholic and it seems lately new things are coming out for this phone every week or so, makes it even better.
My girlfriend just got added to my plan so we ordered a HTC amaze 4g because it was free. And after looking at the amaze section it doesn't seem likes there's much going on.from what I read they are stuck on drivers. Yet the amaze it set to get the official ics update.
All that being said my girlfriend had a flip phone so anything is an upgrade for her. Which phone should I take and which one should I give to her.

I keep hearing that they have s-off on the Amaze, but it hasn't been released yet...but that's just what I read on here. I don't know it to be a fact. But I would probably take the Amaze if it were free, because I have found out recently that I don't prefer ICS. Not that I'm knocking mt4g, its still my favorite, but I feel like the Amaze will explode in development soon...

I thought the same thing but then I saw that there isn't even Ám7 for the amaze which kind of made me worry about development. Thanks for your reply though

DONATE TO ME
Ive heard that the Amaze is a great phone, but time is ticking and the development window is getting smaller by the day. Without development going on currently, people will probably move to a new device sooner.

Just my two cents.

If you want a device for development, go for some thing else like sensation or upcoming one s. If you want a great device that works, go for the amaze.

I got the amaze for my girl and Im switching to it too.

Honestly, if you want great developer support and lots of ROM options, you should go with a Nexus. Be it a nexus S or the galaxy nexus. They tend to have the liveliest dev groups. however, if you are into sense ui, it might not be the best choice.

The only thing I am worried about from taking the amaze is the battery life
