I can get the X right now for 150.
Will the Thunderbolt really be that much better that it's worth paying 300 for?
It comes with 40GB of storage, 32GB of it real storage, not like the iPhone where 32GB includes the OS, etc.
It's the first CDMA phone to do voice and data simultaneously. Does it do it well? Jury is out....but I'd bet it's fine for most.
First LTE phone, after seeing how fast LTE is on a USB modem..I'm hooked.
My personal thoughts are shortly after the Tbolt is announced they will tier data pricing (if not during launch, but here's to hoping).
If I switch to a Tbolt from my current blackberry my hosted exchange email (work email) is 5 bucks cheaper per month. My data plan is 10 bucks cheaper per month (if I can get in on 29.99 unlimited).
That means this phone pays for itself in 20 months if it retails for 300 w/ renew or 16 months if 250.
And the ability to actually use the power and speed of the web on actual web pages...is worth it for me!!
HTC does not lock down their bootloader the way Motorola does now. So yes, the T-bolt is worth it.

You won't know until it comes out and real people post real opinions. All there is now is speculation. It also looks like you'll be able to get a Bionic for $150, so that's a pretty good reason to wait unless you're getting that X off-contract at $150. Bad time to get an X on contract. My son's Dare is on its last gasp and he decided to wait for a TB.
Like it has been proven that we can't rely on BB for release dates, we also can't rely on them for price. There has been no official VzW announcement of the product. What BB is willing to put in an ad is meaningless, they just want to grab eyeball and pump non-refundable gift cards.
The LTE and battery issues are a little more concerning to me. Hopefully they have it fixed, only time will tell.

Not to me. I'll wait for the price to drop below $250, and/or wait to see what else comes into play.
