    3G for talking? Why does the 3G icon disappear when I make a phone call?

    It is a dummy. I don't think they're trying to pass it off as a live model; at least I hope not.

    These are display models. I work at a retailer. Both are the exact screens of the dummies. Exact screen layouts of both. I don't see either of these launching this week. I can upload pics tomorrow.

    On that note, does this mean I have to buy a 4g data plan in addition to 3g?

    Alright, that answers my question. Hope there's automerge so I don't make a doublepost. Sorry if I do.

    Yea I know. They've arrived for some the weekend of the 14th before the delay was known throughout (hence the Feb 14th date on the display models). Expect the Xoom to come this week for sure, but March for the Thunderbolt is more realistic.

    March sounds about right for the Bolt.
