I've never seen or heard about any phones with an optical out, but that would definitely be an option. Still, 4G wouldn't be enough to stream FLAC.

Probably pretty long (forever) since they're saying it will take up to 20,000 songs...

No, I'm just kidding.

I don't think there are any portable devices that assume high end output. I mainly listen to music at home on my studio monitors, so FLAC is the best option for me. And in all honesty, portable devices are rarely used in situations where FLAC would be of any benefit.

4g should be fine, the true 4g not 3g+

4g's definition

Also, is streaming really an assumed prerequisite?

With storage so cheap, why should wireless transfer speed limit the native capabilities of the device?

Maybe, but what about the carriers and their bandwidth? You know full well AT&T will be like "Ok, data plan 89.99 a month, tethering 15.99 a month, downloading 1 album 12.99 a month, plus an album surplus charge of 2.99 an album..."

Ugh..

I put FLAC songs on my Incredible, only because i'm too lazy to convert them to 320s. Very excited to try this out.

My sansa fuze+ uses .ogg and i find it better than mp3 on a pair of mdr-7505

My Cowon S9 does FLAC really well. But when this service hits, a 320kbps version won't be too bad for my phone. Besides, it would not be taxing on my net connection and battery compared to lossless formats.
