Which carrier gets the LG Optimus 2x ?
not much of a video, everyone kept trying to grab it from eachother lol
I believe Sprint does
Wait a second: What are the specs for the Revolution? Surely it has a Tegra 2, or is VZW screwing consumers with an inferior chipset?
One positive I do see with the Thunderbolt is the 32gb SD included. That's a big selling point for someone like myself who is in the market for a 32gb.
im trying to find any info on it now. i think i want the LG but it needs to be dual core, otherwise i might as well just get the thunderbolt
My guess it is not dual core for a few reasons:
1. Product differentiation between carriers
2. They would have touted it as a feature
3. 4.3 and 16gb built-in seems to be the tradeoff for probably an older chipset.
4. 2.2 on device and NOT 2.3
Not much confidence this is a dual core.
Not sure if this is true or not but this says dual core for the LG:
LG Revolution specs - Phone Arena
Also this contradicts the above: http://www.wirelessandmobilenews.co...4g-lte-news-lg-revolution-specs-revealed.html
"At the Verizon press conference at CES, LG unveiled their 4G Android 2.2 smartphone, the LG Revolution. The LG Revolution is not as full-powered as the LG Optimus 2X, which has a dual-core processor.
The LG Revolution has a 4.3-inch touchscreen, DLNA, HDMI, DivX compatibility, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G/LTE mobile hotspot capabilities, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and a microSD card slot . It also has a front-facing camera for video calls. TheLG Revolutionrecords and plays 1080p HD video.
The LG Revolution has a rear-facing 5-megapixel camera and front-facing camera for video conferencing.
No pricing has been set yet. It is one of many LTE smartphones coming from Verizon."
FWIW Engadget seemed to be impressed with it's speed. Tough choices between the 4g phones...
This is why.
Verizons got all these good phones. Wondering what might be out next year. 5G? Maybe even Quad Core.
Tegra 2 Flash and PSX performance DESTROYS all other chipsets (two apps that show true chipset power), including the newer 1.2ghz in the Droid Global. BTW, it destroys other devices and has GREAT battery life.
People rationalizing the non-advantage for dual cores are respectfully incorrect.
Hey, I know! It is absolutely revolutionary, but you cannot act like you knew that was coming! Don't get me wrong I am certainly jealous of what their doing with the Atrix 4G, but Motorola really screwed themselves by not giving the Droid Bionic similar capablities. The specs are great, but I hate blur and the phone itself is kind of ugly. I don't really like Motorola phones, especially because they're so locked down, HTC phones are so easy to root and customize. Right now I'm on the fence about getting the HTC ThunderBolt, if I do it'll be on a one-year contract and I won't mind waiting until December for the better Tegra 2 phones. Depending on the price I might just get the Motorola XOOM and stick with my Incredible. Hard to decide, they hardly announced anything at the Verizon event, we have no idea on pricing or release dates on anything which is a major factor in my decision.
this, anything not running dual core by 2012 will be obsolete. No sense in wasting a 2 year contact on last years phones. The thunderbolt is hardly exclusive, where it matters it's exactly like the 6 month old evo.
HTC Thunderbolt first hands-on (update: video!) -- Engadget
I thought it was funny that he got it taken away like three times.
So has the madness subsided?
Yes. You got anything good for us? So we heard march as the first LTE handset. You think it could be earlier or is that set in stone? You have info on HTC devices, what about any other device (LG, Sammy, Moto)?
The only one I've seen so far is the HTC. The Moto and LG's are starting to make their way around though.
Like I said, I don't think the Thunderbolt is Feb. at the absolute earliest. It just started rolling out to the testers. Average time frame for initial field testing is 4-8 weeks. Take it for what it's worth...
I think the CES coverage of the devices has been pretty good. Decent hands on with a ton of stuff
PS- I'm getting a Xoom, no matter what
I am still getting one. I have always liked the EVO. All the reviews so far are positive and no one is making a big deal about the tegra 2, except in here. HTC makes better phones IMHO and will get on a 1 yr contract and start the whole process over 10 months from then.
I will also be getting the xoom. I am excited about that the most.
That sounds like a good game plan for me as well. Of course I could be dead by then and not have to bother.
I am sure I could easily look, but when is the Xoom set to launch?
"Rumor" is Feb 14th.
HTC ThunderBolt? at Verizon
Received this link in an email from HTC
still said not to be released until march smh
