    Both are high-end Android phones on Verizon. So far, Bionic has significantly better specs than what we know about the Thunderbolt currently. Unless HTC pulls some kind of surprise, I will be skipping on it. LG will be announcing the Revolution and Samsung still has there turn to take in announcements. It's looking grim for the Thunderbolt.

    exactly, the dual core devices are another league IMO. They are the future while the HTC is just going out with a decent bang being the first LTE phone for VZW and being the last big single core device.

    I like that Motorola is setting the bar high, it gives everyone else a high standard to live up to.

    I agree that the Thunderbolt is going to have to surprise us with some amazing specs. Motorola, Samsung, and LG are going to dual cores and I would hope HTC does the same. An overclocked 2nd gen Snapdragon is good but not great. Watch as the Thunderbolt has a quad core! I love HTC phones and I'd like to keep upgrading to them.

    I really like the specs on the Bionic, although I much prefer Sense over Bing and Motoblur, even with all the features I want.. Hopefully HTC surprises us tomorrow, if not, I'll be happy with my DINC for now :)

    Here are some specs (although somewhat conjectured) from here for the Thunderbolt:

    • 1.2Ghz Qualcomm MSM8960 dual-core CPU
    • Android 2.3
    • LTE support
    • 4.3″ Touchscreen
    • 8 megapixel autofocus camera with Dual-LED flash (with HD video recording)
    • 5 megapixel front-facing camera
    • Radio: Quadband UMTS/LTE/HSDPA/HSUPA
    • 802.11b/g/n
    • Bluetooth
    • GPS/aGPS
    • Hotspot mode
    • 16 GB internal memory
    • 1800mAh battery
    If this is true, the Thunderbolt looks like it has a faster processor, more internal RAM, and a higher resolution front camera. Looks pretty good to me, hopefully we'll have real specs for these phones soon.

    512 MB RAM? Screw that.

    1 GB or better. I won't get a device with less than that.

    And how wants a 4.3" screen that'll drain battery? I want the ATRIX 4G with its 4" screen...

    Damnit. Disappointing.

    4.3 isnt really standard, there are many that are small still. 4" is a sweet spot for many people i think
