2. How good is AT&T LTE with this device?

3. Can anyone comfirm LTE working with CM10 beta rom?

The camera quality is pretty poor...much like the iPod4g's camera. It's definitely nothing to brag about.

Not sure that anyone around here has the LTE...at least not that I've seen.

Not yet but developers are hard at work on it. In all fairness, I think very few people thought it would even get this far. You'll just have to be patient.

When CM9 was first ported to the original KF, we had no sound, no hardware acceleration, constant SODs, and it wouldn't charge. That was about a year ago. Now they have quite bit of development and several fully working ROMS based on CM10, CM10.1 AOKP and AOSP along with good developer support.

With access to custom recovery and amazing developers like Hashcode and Fattire, it's only a matter of time until the HDs are in the same boat.
