    Does anyone know the differences between these two chips found in the Thunderbolt and Inspire? Both appear to be 2nd gen snapdragon's clocked at 1GHz. I was under the impression that the 8655 in the thunderbolt was a faster processor. So far the only differences I can find is that the 8655 supports CDMA2000 and 1xEV-DO. Quadrant scores appear to be similar between the two devices. Is the only differences between the two chips network support? I am considering canceling my pre-order and sticking with AT&T after seeing how Verizon is handling the release of this device.

    Actually they both have two different separate Qualcomm RF chips. For instance TB has MDM9600 and it's independent from the qualcomm's CPU.
