    I like how the www.verizonwireless.com/thunderbolt still takes you to the "Stikes Soon" page. Am I the only one who didn't get an email to "know before it hits" ?

    Kind of anti-climactic since there was so much evidence over the past couple of days, but I'm glad its "official" now. This -----> x 1,000,000 for no more release date threads! On to the tech itself! Can't wait for Thursday!!!

    This is soooo tempting. Especially with free hotspotting.

    I want to wait for a dual core LTE phone from HTC (locked bootloaders are not a feature sorry Bionic). But, I don't know if i can pass up saving $240 a year for an unlimited hotspot.

    I did buy a Xoom (no contract) and if I return it for the WiFi version I save $200 and can parlay that into a TB...

    Hmmmm.....

    Maybe I read that wrong but it looks like hotspot is unlimited/free only until May 2011.

    If I understand it correctly, someone correct me please if I'm wrong...

    If you start your plan before May 2011 you get free hotspotting as part of your plan. If you buy in after you'll be charged $20 per month.
