Went to lunch today, grabbed a fastfood burger and headed over to the local Vz store. Right inside the door...there it was...Thunderbolt! Weee...I wet my pants a little.
I know a lot of people were disappointed over the delays to launching this thing and began talking about what a non issue this phone is, but I had to touch it. It loads websites very fast comapared to my OG Droid. The Sense UI is not terrible. I thought it would be.
So the sales guys asks me if I want one and I told him I was a bit bummed because my nE2 was not till November. So we walk over to the register and he looks me up and says "Good news...you don't have to wait til November...computer says October 26." LOL
He scratches his head and says he can do an early upgrade for 230 bucks if I buy 3 accesories. So I got the TB, a soft case, a creen protector and could not justify buying anything else and he gives in on the accesories...LOL I knew he was just upselling.
Right now I am transfering map tiles for my USGS GPS apps which is estimated to take another 3 hours. I can't play with it till it's done. Bummer for me.
But I have to say...this screen is awesome. The speed is great. No lag. It just works. I am going to like this thing.
I have 14 days to change my mind and go back to the OG Droid. It was a good run but I really dont see myself returning this phone. Maybe the wife will want the OG. She's not a power user and I could probably set it up stock for her use. It's kind of sad...it was a great phone.
