    I spent yesterday seeking out the best tablets and smartphones at CES. Anyone considering the Thunderbolt will not be disappointed. It is a well made phone and the UI is very good.

    Screen looked as good or better than my amoled incredible screen.
    Weight in hand feels nice.
    No hdmi out but it will stream to DLNA compatible device. HTC media box?

    Speed on 4g is totally re-tar-ded!!! NFL live started playing a live football game after about 1/2 second buffer.

    Thunderbolt will be the winner if it is all google. If they bing it it will come in a close second to the bionic.

    You have every right to be excited about this phone.

    If they release it around the same time as the Bionic at the $199 price point and the Bionic also costs $199 I just don't see people flocking to the device since it lacks some features.

    The verizon rep mentioned Feb release fwiw.

    I can't say it enough...4g is fricken fast.

    I was playing with the Panasonic HD video conferencing over 4g at the Verizon booth. Cute blonde was on the other end. I believe she was in PA. Connection was solid, only a 1/2 second delay, and 1080i clear. It looked like I could reach out and touch her.

    Amazing what you can do over the 4g network.

    HTC will come out around March 12 and Bionic not before May. They will not be released together.

    If I say source people will ask who I am who the source is, so let's leave it the way it is for now :)

    Only after tried to grab her boob. What could I do? She looked to life like.

    Never miss an opportunity I always say.
     
  14. I don't know whether I should get the Bionic or the Thunderbolt. I love HTC Sense and don't really have any interest in the New MotoBlur but I want the dual-core processor so the phone will be fast. Also, I want the qHD display. What should I do?

    I'm leaning more towards the Bionic because you're basically ahead of the game for a loooooong time with a dual core processor, qHD screen, and 4G.

    All that HD streaming capability, all that massive storage capability ...

    And NO HDMI OUT??

    That's like the biggest slap in the face in the whole world. ok, ok ... just almost.
