    The Incredible went big on verizon, followed by the evo 4g on sprints network; it is no wonder HTC was named Device Manufacturer of the Year. So congrats to HTC and we expect the Thunderbolt and the Incredible S to live up to expectations. Full press release below:

    Agreed. I love my DroidX, but I want an unlocked bootloader.

    The OG Droid was the last amazing Moto phone IMO. After the lock down of the bootloader, build quality alone isn't enough to get my money. For those who don't care about rooting or ROMs, i doubt anyone will care.

    According to the article motorola was not even a finalist it was between HTC, Samsung, and Apple. But motorola has not even made a showing at the MWC so far except for showing their over-priced, in my opinion, tablet.

    Yes, the T-Bolt will be my next phone, and I really love the Droid Incredible that I already have. It's fast and has a gorgeous AMOLED screen. I'm torn though between the Dinc and my Droid X. That phone, with it's 4.3 screen is easy to love. Nonetheless, my next phone is oing to be the T-Bolt, not the Motorola Bionic, I'm done with Motorola for good.
