    Oh yeah, and finally AT&T can't brag about talk/data at the same time as the TB can do that... on just 3G.

    Motorola did shoot itself in the foot so to speak, I am perfectly happy using my Droid and Droid X until someone donates a Thunderbolt or until a dual core developer device with a 4+ inch screen is released on Verizons network.

    I intend on defeating the X bootloader else I would have gone for a tbolt.

    These are the reasons for me
    1. HTC products have been reliable for me before, and I like the quality.
    2. LTE. Its fast.
    3. The data plan.
    4. Rootability

    "An improved ui with speed and features for users who did not want to mod, but the ability to do so if you so choose."

    This sums it up pretty well.

    And when motorola told those of us who wanted to use custom roms to go elsewhere I couldn't wait for the Thunderbolt. I missed my Droid 1 and felt let down by Motorola. The ball was dropped by motorola.

    Speaking of motorola, have you seen this? Made my day. Visualized: what Motorola Android users want -- Engadget

    A friend of mine still has his D1 with Cyanogen Gingerbread, and said he wants the Dbionic, but wondered about its ability for rooting.

    3. LTE. Being the first with Verizon 4G made it the leader without a single device sold.

    4. Unlocked bootloader. Not that important to the general public, but it will sell itself (exclusively, at this point) to the Mod community.


    Add all those things together, and its no surprise it is the biggest seller on the market right now.
    I'd like to add that the large sales are probably coming from the mentality that its basically an Evo for Verizon. It's a wildly popular and we'll recognized phone that people would love to own. The Thunderbolt basically rides on that success and failure HTC branding,

    I got mine for pretty much all the same reasons that the OP pointed out. Also just to say to hell with MOTO. When the response was to buy elsewhere that is exactly what I did. The TBOLT is a great device.

    Got my D1 the day they came out in Nov 2009 - came from a BB Storm. Never looked back. Like others are saying, the D1 has run its useful life. It opened my eyes to what a great OS android has and the ability to root your phone. The D1 was the first Motorola phone I owned since my bag phone in 1993. The TB came out and I was eligible to upgrade so I jumped on it before the tiered data pricing came out. Was it a wise choice, heck yes! It's everything I wish the D1 and D2 were. I'm very satisfied and don't think I'll mind owning this phone for the next 20 months (hey 19 months now). It's nice to see new devs making things for the TB too. I'm looking forward to seeing what Chevy has in store for us when he gets settled into his new home too.
    Thank you to all who have served or are serving our great country. You're always in my thoughts and prayers.
