    I was looking into getting the Thunderbolt. I am upgrading my envy touch so its a big upgrade for me. I was wondering if anyone knows if this is the same size as the EVO. I want to start buyin some accessories but not from verizon because everyone knows they are an arm and a leg.

    I use Phantom Skinz. I have used Zaggs on several and IMHO I do not like the orange peel. I was a big believer in Zagg, but when reviews of the Phantom Skinz came out, I tried. Went on easier, cheaper (also get 2), always a 15% discount code etc etc.

    I am sure there will be millions of debates about this as there was on the Incredible... I think it all comes down to personal preference. I like Zagg.

    I haven't heard anything about any other accessories. Personally, I am most interested in a car dock, desktop dock and Battery options. Those are my number one complaints about the Dinc.

    What do you guys think about the ultra clear SPG or that brand in general for screen protectors?

    Amazon is taking pre-orders for the Innocase and the Clip holster for a non-cased ThunderBolt. Innocase/Holster combo isn't up yet it seems.

    $25.00 for the Holster on Amazon ($5.00 off vs Seidio online)

    Innocase II Surface - Black
    Seidio Spring-Clip Holster for Non-Cased ThunderBolt

    BestBuy's across the country started receiving accessories yesterday from Seidio and Rocketfish. Amzer has accessories listed for Body Glove but there only saying "coming soon" Metallic colors like black/grey/red/blue.

    then I found some snap on cases, which i ended up buying just to see the actual size since it was only $2, it says its made by Luxmo and its a rubberized case.

    I'm waiting for those Carbon Fiber material cases that Offwire leaked before the phone was announced.

    Griffin is going to have accessories available, but not sure if there going to have them at launch and i don't know what they will be, i just know the rep said they were working on cases for the T-bolt. Would be nice if Casemate had some coming too, and hopefully since the T-bolt has its USB on the side that we will get a better car dock this time along with a desktop dock since this phone supports landscape because of the new Sense 2.0.

    Has anyone heard of any other cases? I would like to order one before I get the Thunderbolt. Or very soon after.

    Looking at a couple of videos comparing the two, the TB is not the same size as the EVO; the TB is thicker.

    I picked up the ZAGG from BB today, and I think they have a case too. Go to their website and do in store pick up.

    Thought I would share a find. This was on Engadget but was talking about the Incredible 2 coming to VZW. I noticed all the T-Bolt accessories and wanted to share. Is that a car mount showing??? maybe even an extended battery. Who knows.

    I ditched Zagg a few devices ago and went with Phantom Skinz. Same as above, better and no orange peel.

    Does it get a lot of fingerprints? I was wondering if I was better off with the Ultra Fine Anti-Fingerprint?

    It wasn't bad. Better than the naked screen. I haven't tried the anti fingerprint. One nice thing is you get two protector's for half the price of the sagging plus its a dry install no solution needed.

    I hope HTC makes a desk dock and car mount for the TB.
