I'm sitting here on the cusp of getting my insurance payment from my D1 breaking and I'll have every phone at my disposal Thanks State Farm for being Ten Million % > Asurion.
So I'm all excited about the Thunderbolt and as I look into it, it's still got the limited 800 pixel screen, it's only going to have a 1400 mAh battery, and the bluetooth will not support me using my headset to access my phonebook, or really anything that bluetooth is capable of. Couple all of those things with the horrible location of the charge port (which is placed properly on the Sprint version) It pretty much made my decision for me that this phone just is the bastard child of the middle ground of someone making some money before putting out any real new technology.
I just got off the phone trying to pry out any more info on the Thunderbolt that I can, I did find 1 thing really encouraging about it, that it will apparently have simultaneous data+talk. I didn't think that was possible on the 3G network setup, but the rep I talked to told me for sure that this was going to be backwards compatible and not only for use in 4G areas.
Guess I'll just have to wait for more info on the Bionic, but right now the dual core processor, the 3d graphics accelerator, the 1930mAh battery, the 960 pixel screen, and having the ability to playback H.263 and H.264 video, on top of being able to use bluetooth to access phonebook, and data transfer et all has me thinking Bionic is worth the wait.
