    hey guys...just a random question about some new phones that will be coming out, and your thoughts on the situation.

    I have a Droid 1, am due for an upgrade and I am trying my hardest to with for the next wave of great devices to come out. For now I am specifically looking at the Droid Bionic, HTC Thunderbolt, and the LG Revolution.

    I am assuming (since Moto has turned into a bootloader locking monster) that the Bionic could very well be the next Droid X and not easily rooted and customized. But now that the XOOM is out and it is unlockable and re-lockable for devs that they may have wised up and the Bionic will be the same way. Either way, until it more is known about that it is on the bottom of my list.

    HTC and I have got along since I have been helping my friend with an EVO, giving him root and flashing UD 3.1.1 on it. He complains constantly about the battery life and I have heard the same from Incredible users, so I am unsure about the Thunderbolt at the moment but am loving the specs and the fact that it is HTC.

    The LG Revolution intrigues me the most so far. First off it is a tegra 2 phone and second it is made by LG. I know LG makes great products in other markets but then again so does Samsung and their venture into android hasn't been that good in my opinion. For right now this is at the top of my list because of the tegra 2, the fact that I keep hearing that it will be stock android (with no skin such as Blur or Sense), and that is is made by LG and we haven't seen them make a smartphone yet.

    Any thoughts on what I just said is appreciated and adding to to them would be great. If I am not considering a phone that I should be then feel free to explain. This was just my thoughts on what I am considering for my next phone, any help is appreciated.

    P.S. sorry for the book (again) lol

    Well something got mixed up in my head for sure. The Revolution is NOT tegra 2 and the specs compared to the other 2 are not as good. So I guess the Thunderbolt is my new front runner.

    Still add anything you want to this.
    Sorry bout that.

    ud is gonna support tbolt. besides that, who knows currently. if bionic is unlocked then i will pick one up and boom it will be ud supported. but its doubtful.

    I feel moto will do like they did with the d1 and the phones with the tablets. 1st release sucks u in bc its unlocked, then lock them up like a serial killer! xoom is unlocked but i bet next moto tablet is like the atrix and locked like crazy. marketing is all it is, get you liking there devices then lock people out and let them be able to do enough still though to be contempt. just like the x and d2. just enough you arent completely pissed to own one.

    thats why i personally would go with the T'bolt. i mean hell, i love my inc even after almost a year. lol. in the past, it only took me a month or so to start not liking my phones. talking my g/f into a t'bolt. sh'e due for an upgrade. are there any smaller smartphones like the inc that i dont see out there. she doesnt like the bulkiness of the 4"+ screens
