    Erm, the Bionic is in there as well. I thought the Bionic got scratched, at least as the Bionic?

    Not exactly. The Etna got scratched, which was the internal code name for what was supposed to be the Bionic. They ran into significant hardware problems with it, so they cancelled it. The Targa, which was the internal code name for what was supposed to be a completely different phone with a later target launch date, is now going to be released with the Bionic name.

    So, the hardware that was originally announced/showed off as the Bionic will not make it to market. But rather than admit flaws in the design and publicly cancel the Bionic, they delayed the Bionic for "upgrades" and will just slap the name on a different phone.

    What kind of marketing approach is that to leave it out?

    I'm also wondering about Battery Life and whatnot. Does it have a bigger battery? Or the same size? Has it been optimized to use less battery? What? I wanna know.

    And the other big question that came to mind:

    Since the Tbolt has DUAL RADIOS making it able to Talk'n'Surf... will this have dual radios? And will future phones have dual radios so we can have Voice+Data? That would be awesome. Not a deal breaker... but would be a total amenity.
    From what I hear, on 4g you can talk and use data unlike 3g, obviously. So any phone that's 4g can do that

    It has nothing to do with 4G. It works solely over the 3G/1x network.
    The ThunderBolt has SVDO for simultaneous Voice and Data, Voice on 1X, data on EVDO, no other 4G phone on Verizon has this. The LG Revolution is the ONLY 4G phone on Verizon that supports VoLTE which completed its test earlier this year. So it can do voice over LTE when Verizon rolls that out, in what 2020.

    4G on the Evo (Sprint) is different than 4G on the Thunderbolt (Verizon). But as far as I know, voice over LTE has not been enabled. The ability to use voice and data at the same time with the Thunderbolt is on 3G right now, but I believe it uses a different type of 3G radio than the norm to make this happen.
    Ok, let's clarify this.

    The TBolt uses CDMA for voice and 3G Data. Voice and Data are only guaranteed to work in 4G coverage areas.

    The reason? 3G CDMA and 4G LTE are two different technologies with different radios.

    You are right that 4G only supports data which is why you can be on a CDMA (dates back past 1X) voice call and still use LTE data.

    Ok I will clarify. The TB has SVDO, which means it can do Voice on 1X at the same time using Data on EVDO, it has nothing to do with 4G LTE. The TB is also not capable of VoLTE only the LG Revolution is.

    I hope that helps.

    Looking forward to the DX2...probably gonna sell my X on ebay and buy the X2 outright. The more RAM, dual-core, and better screen has me wantin' it. I won't have 4G in my area for years so I'm fine with just 3G. Really wish it had the FFC but eh, I can live without it. But, knowing me, the Bionic will come out a few months from now and then I'll be selling the X2 to get that!! lol
