    Nice phone, but the overall form factor is too big for my liking. I've held the bigger phones, (Droid X, EVO 4G, etc.) and I just don't like how big they are. I want a phone that fits easily in my back pocket and all these new phones are just to big. Plus, I have small hands and they are uncomfortable to hold while talking. The Ally and Incredible are about as big as I want a phone to be.

    Personally i'm not impressed with it :X. I've seen the unboxing vid and the review vid of it, It reminds of an Evo personally. Just with some more memory, more updated processor, and comes witha 32gb sdcard. There may be more but idk. If it really costs 750 (i think) off contract i'd rather just go ahead and get the Xoom then.

    Personally, I'm thinking this ---> Samsung Galaxy S II specs - Phone Arena looks more like my style. I realize these specs are for a GSM system, but considering Galaxy was released to all carriers, I would imagine they will do the same with this one.....

    Plus, the release will be closer to my upgrade date.

    If I had my choice of any phone right now it would be the Droid Bionic hands down! It completely destroys any of the other Verizon phones (including the Thunderbolt) in performance. I mean come on, look at the freakin specs. It's a beast!!!

    Nvidia Tegra 2 1GHz Dual-core processor
    512 RAM
    Adobe Flash Player and HTML5 support
    Front-facing VGA camera
    Rear-facing 8-megapixel camera
    Multiplayer gaming capabilities
    4.3-inch HD quality screen
    HDMI connectivity
    Full 1080p support
    "Mirror Mode

    Yes it is a 4G phone and it was listed on Amazon for a short time for 149.99. They took it down for some reason. So I am assuming that the price will be about 149.99-199.99 with a new contract. I'm not sure what the upgrade price will be. I'm about to head to Verizon and talk to one of my buddies that works there. Maybe he'll be able to give me more info onit.

    I agree. IMO-a phone is useless if it lacks a real,useable keyboard.

    LG seems to be making great turn around this year with their new line of high end Android like Optimus 2X, Black, 3D. 2X (Tegra 2) and 3D (OMAP4) are getting insane benchmark results lately.
    The problem is that none of their dual core super-phone is not announced for Verizon yet. Only the Revolution 4G LTE is supposed to hit verizon store sometime in Q2.

    Thunderbolt: oh yes!...I got to hold it before they put it on display when I went to get a new Ally this past Saturday. It wasn't on or anything and the rep joked that I probably thought it was too bulky as that was my excuse for not buying a case from him.

    Yes, has everything you could ever want in a smartphone EXCEPT the only thing it lacks is a slide out keyboard. It seems that most people nowadays are perfectly content with a touch-screen only phone, while I do really like having a slide-out keyboard.

    So are there any phones with a large screen that actually have a slide-out keyboard?

    Im gonna wait for a 4 row keyboard before I buy anything... Ive tried quite a few and always come back to my Ally... I use numbers to much to have a 3 row keyboard... But, thats just a preference, others could probably care less about it....

    Also, I wanna see how the data pricing is... Im not paying extra for 4g when im not near a 4g city...

    Have 3 upgrades on 5/11.... Curious to see whats out by then with a keyboard.....Lets not forget about this LG coming out..

    I was concerned about the 4G's astronomical pricing as well.... however I found out you can still use a 3g package on the 4G phones.
    Also they said they are working on similar pricing for 4g and working on unlimited on that.... well see I guess.
