My Axim, which was manufactured by HTC also came with a 3.5mm jack. That's not the issue guys. Sony Ericsson's X1, also manufactured by HTC came with 3.5mm jack. See a trend? We need to put pressure on HTC - why defend HTC's decision to not use 3.5mm jacks at all? They only do it so they can sell their stupid extUSB connectors, which are liable to break, fall apart and add bulk.
The next person to say "Bluetooth A2DP" gets the pleasure of buying me an extended battery by Seidio.
Also, why did the Touch HD come with 3.5mm jack and then they removed it on the TD2 and TP2?
