    I just came from the Inspire (returned it during the trial period), its a great phone, little smoother than the TB actually but the capped AT&T data (2.85down/1.45Up with Inspire...check my pic below for speeds with my T-Bolt) plus no unlimited plans from AT&T anymore really is what made me take it back. I stream Pandora all day & I was up to 600mb on my 2gb plan in only 5 days!

    Plus I really like the TB's kickstand & the fact it'll have a desktop cradle, AT&T has NO accessories for their Inspire what so ever!

    You are so right!! I just picked up my TB and passed on my Fascinate to my wife. She loves it especially after coming from the Samsung Rogue, which is ancient to me. As for updates, they suck! She doesn't know Froyo from Tokyo! I did, which was one of the reasons I wanted the TB...

    I'll bet the TB sees Gingerbread before Froyo hits the Fascinate...

    Good. The sooner this comes out, the sooner the Bionic will as well. I still have my money on the 4/28 for the Bionic. :)

    That's so not fair!!! Why wasn't the Thunderbolt a "DROID". That makes a phone like twice as cool.

    Spec-wise this seems almost identical to the TBolt. So no thank you, especially given Samsung's history of pushing updates.

    Probably the Bionic for me. Although it would be nice if the D3 or DX2 or one of the other phones due later this summer had LTE, but my guess is they are offering those to keep costs down and provide otherwise top-of-the-line features to people who don't have LTE or don't need it.

    I just imagine a lot of ticked off customers when they get LTE in their area a few months after they buy a 3G phone and discover they are SOL.

    Wow. If true, same sh*t different year for Verizon. HTC has the software support, Samsung the screen, and Motorola the processor. Sadly, the HTC seems marginal over the EVO design, the Samsung is using a 2010 processor, and I have no desire to have to put up with another pentile matrix display with the Bionic. Perhaps if they wouldn't test phones for 6 months ad nauseum, they wouldn't be releasing 6 month older hardware when everyone else is innovating. This just made up my mind not to exercise my annual upgrade at the end of April as nothing is worth it. I'll gladly wait until the end of the year.

    I'm hoping these specs on the Droid Stealth are incorrect. Several other sources have it listed as Dual Core so who knows at this point.

    As I said above Verizon needs to get off their butts and get us some good equipment and fast. This is just ridiculous.

    As others have said I'll keep my HTC Thunderbolt... Samsung is HORRIBLE with support and updates to their phones and HTC has always been great when I've had them....

    As to those of you whining about not being a 'dual-core'... seriously... the single core Thunderbolt is plenty fast out of the box with all the bloatware lagging it down, just wait until some nice ROMs hit, and the battery life is HORRIFIC... care to guess how much worse battery life will be on a dual-core, don't plan on being off of a charger more than a couple of hours (if that)... just relax, and breath and remember IT'S A PHONE!!!, lol:icon_ banana:

    I was under the impression dual-cores got better battery life for the speed... you're just running double the speed, should be good to go if you turn it down

    It runs at whatever speed it needs to run at. So with two cores, itll get the job done quicker and at a lower clock speed per core. Therefore, you should expect better battery life out of a dual core.
