Which one would you get/like better and why?
Tough question. I'll really need to compare side-by-side in the store. TBolt is a nice piece of hardware, but the advantages of a dual core could be significant, however that could be offset by limitations of less ram in the Bionic.
Honestly, the ability to root and flash a custom rom with HTC could be the difference maker. Overclocking to 1.5 could make the advantage of the dual core less and, in some cases, the TBolt could be faster oc'd to 1.5ghz.
So I'm taking a wait and see approach. The other thing I'm disappointed about with the TBolt is lack of HDMI out. Sure, it has DLNA but only newer, high-end tv's support that (HDMI out is something I might use in the hotel to watch a movie or programs from my slingbox).
Ehhh, most likely the Bionic is the phone I'll get. Maybe Google eventually gets around to incorporating compcache when it gets perfected (sort of like JIT) and it solves any issues with inadequate ram.
Not to be an a** h*** but DF does have a pretty solid search function and this topic has been repeated over and over and over again...but to answer your question, I'll be getting which ever one has the better dev community.

The bionic is dual core. Silas long as the bootloader isn't locked I will go with the bionic.

At first I was thinking Bionic, but now probably Thunderbolt only because from what I'm reading it'll be more dev friendly. I'm not getting it right away though, gonna see what everyone says before I make the plunge. I don't really care about dual core, it's not going to make my phone suddenly magical.
