    Can't you get the TB on Amazon for 1cent?

    Being serious, saw an article somewhere about it.

    Just think how the D1 struggles with the latest software and apps because of the limited memory and processing power. Apps are only going to get more advanced and require more resources. The Bionic will have the growing room needed to last for the next 2 years. A single core TB with less RAM will probably be struggling in a year or so like the D1's are now. If you're worried about spending a little extra on a phone you're not going to have to upgrade for at least a couple years, then why on Earth would you settle for a phone you'll HAVE to upgrade in one year? Honestly, if you take longevity into consideration, the Bionic is the better deal of the two.

    I would definitely agree that buying the TB because it's cheaper isn't exactly the smartest move, unless you literally cannot afford the Bionic obviously.

    It's like I told my father when he asked me what TV he should buy, he said, well this 720P is $699, I said, if you're willing to spend $700, you might as well spend $900 and get 1080p.

    In the end, you'll be saving money by not having to upgrade a lot sooner than normal and you'll enjoy a higher quality device.

    There is a big reason the Tbolt keeps dropping in price..... It's due to be retired in a few more months. What you need to keep in mind is; the Tbolt is a first gen 4G LTE device. As others have stated; it was old technology when the phone was released. I'm not thrilled about the high price of the Bionic but, it's what I am waiting on. I am still using my Droid 1 so; I expect to have my Bionic at least as long.

    It looks like you were on Wi-Fi alot and i thought the T-Bolts battery issues were when it was searching for 4G signal.

    So if you are in a 4G area and looking for good battery life i would go with the Bionic just my opinion tho

    This is in the back of my mind also and I'm having an OG Droid. There are two reasons the D1 isn't good enough for me. Firstly, RAM is too small and I often have to HotBoot because it won't work with 40 MB of RAM left. I believe the T-Bolt would have enough RAM to run smoothly. Secondly LTE is a big upgrade imho.

    However, while the fact that T-Bolt is a first gen device doesn't bother me as much, I'm concerned that I'll have to buy a bulky battery that will make my phone thicker than my D1. Second I'm also concerned that the device is being dumped by HTC and that it is made by HTC. By most people's accounts Motorola's hardware is more reliable.

    But the Bionic is not going to be without its issues. There's no example of any mobile device not needing a few OTA updates by a carrier. So my plan at the moment is to wait for a month for the Bionic's issues do be ironed out, for its price to drop, for the device to be rooted, the reviews to come out and for the competition to perhaps come up with something better.

    It seems ironic, but it seems that the best thing to do to the Bionic is to make it wait for you, like you have been waiting for it.
