Will it require an sd card? (Asking because of reviews on youtube)
Will it have Global Capabilities?
Comes with a huge 32GB microSD card preinstalled.
Does not have global capabilities.
Oh! Also what makes it superior to the Evo? they seem relatively similar...
Yes. It will require a SIM card.
You can make calls outside the US and Canada. Nothing else.
preinstalled is a weird way of saying that. It has 8GB internal memory and will come with a 32GB card as well.
Better screen, processor, ram, camera, new sense, better kickstand, LTE instead of Wimax. All I can think of now but there is others.
Does a SIM card come with the phone or will it be required separately.
this video may answer that for you..
You were talking about a SIM card not SD card.. Correct me if im wrong
50% more RAM
Next generation snapdragon processor which is nearly twice as fast and drains the battery less.
Much faster and more expansive 4G network on Verizon, which will continue to expand, while there are even rumors that Sprint may switch to LTE.
Comes with 32GB microSD card.
Better kickstand and speaker.
Much better customer service from Verizon, especially for long-time customers.
It comes with the phone when you activate it. It just holds info about the network on it. It is required for 4G and to use voice/data at the same time
Thanks! Youve all been a Huge help! BTW HTCThunderbolt, I LOVE the avatar
Why? That's the way HTC describes it in their specs. Of course, it is in addition to the internal memory.
Thanks! The user NCX Designs made it for me!
Don't forget that it farts sprinkles when it rings.
Also, the TBOLT will have DLNA to share media with other DLNA devices over wifi.
The TBOLT processor meets the DRM requirments to make Netfix a possibility in the future.
I have also heard rumored that a 2.4 OTA will be pushed rather quickly as well - please correct me if I'm wrong.
This is not yet certain. The Thunderbolt has the same processor as the LG Revolution (which demoed Netflix), but it is not yet known if the security keys were built in by HTC for the Thunderbolt. A Qualcomm engineer says that this is determined by the OEM, not by Qualcomm. I find that a little difficult to believe. It would not be good branding by Qualcomm, but that is what has been said publically so far.
I want a Thunderbolt badly, but I can't decide if I should wait for a dual core device.
Here's my question -- my "holy grail" vision is a 4G LTE Android phone that is itself awesome. PLUS, I want to eventually get a Honeycomb tablet WITHOUT a 4G plan (Wifi only) but that can pipe into my phone's 4G, either through bluetooth tethering or wifi hotspot.
This is obviously everybody's holy grail, and Verizon seems to be conniving to deny us this most excellent dream. And yet, it seems like the first carrier to get this done will be the One to Rule Them All.
Do you see reason why the Thunderbolt will NOT be able to do this? Am I more likely to get this dream out of a Motorola combo, or a Samsung combo?
Or is it as simple as "Yes, the Thunderbolt will Wifi hotspot, and just get the wifi only Xoom when it comes out or the next gen Galaxy Tab."
Well there really is no point in Dual core at this point. They will be a little bit faster than the TB but not by much. Also you will be able to tether devices by 4G (pay for it or I am sure someone will find a work a round to get it for free) as for the Tab I have a Nook Color. $250 it has honeycomb on it and its sweet... I will be able to use my TB to get internet on that when I do get my TB
I know, I have considered getting a Nook Color just to root and use as a tab.
But then I think the first gen Galaxy Tabs will drop in price soon and they are even better.
Yep. That might very well happen soon. I just couldn't wait
Continuing the Off Topic but...
I just put Honeycomb on my wife's Nook Color today and it's awesome!
SdCard or EMMC?
There isn't a ton of difference between a Sammy Gtab and a rooted Nook Color actually. Besides price. The NC is at Walmart for $249 right now.... very tempting. But I agree if the Sammy starts droppin under $300 I'm gonna be real tempted for that.
