    I hope the real phone feels like the dummy phone. I love this thing! Wish it came out sooner.

    It has a great weight feel to it. A durable feel. I hope it's the same weight.

    i like the feel of the dummy but it feels a tad bit too plasticy especially the kickstand.

    Good point on the kickstand, but I don't use my phone like that anyway. I may in the future though.

    Best Buy hasn't gotten the dummy/demo yet :(

    I only got to play with the Atrix

    Felt solid to me. Kickstand seemed ok. Back cover has the standard HTC rubbery feel of my Eris.

    The dummy phone is not built to full specs....that's why the kickstand felt that way. The real version is much, much better!

    With HTC's LACK of accessories (desk top chargers) you might have to. I hope they follow Moto's lead and make lots of accessories.

    Yeah, I got to play with a dummy phone yesterday too and the phone definitely felt nice and had some weight to it. Felt very comparable to the Droid 2's weight. But... I will confirm that the kickstand did feel flimsy, making me wonder if it would even hold up. I do feel confident that like another poster said, that this was not the true build. All those videos we saw at CES showed guys talking about how nice and strong the kickstand was. Even that guy at Wirefly was bragging about it and bumping it to show how it stayed up.

    That's why my Droid X went on Ebay last weekend. I'll wait however long I have to.. (just hope it's not past the 24th):)

    I dont think the demo phones will be in best buy until the actual phone sadly enough

    Yup! Right off Georgia Avenue.

    And, as soon as I get 100% confirmation on pricing points...I'll put up my pricing because I plan to beat everyones price!

    Where are you guys finding these dummy phones? I've been to both my local Verizon stores and Best Buy and haven't found anything. The Verizon stores are just filled with iPhone junk.

    I was under the impression that only BB and VZW corporate stores are selling the TB at least at first. Are other VZW stores selling them as well? And how are they different from BB in terms of retail exclusivity?

    I have them because I own a Wireless Zone.


    That once I know with complete certainty what the pricing points of the phone is for me and customers....I want to offer a better price for new avtivations, upgrades, and retail price than the other stores.

    For anyone in the DMV...they can come to my store and get the phone and accessories cheaper than anyone else!


    Wireless Zone will be an authorized dealer of the Thunderbolt as well.

    Every store that got the Thunderbolt collateral was asked to pull it because of the delay.
