This is the question. Lets take 2 scenarios. First is rooted vs rooted, saying there is some miracle that will allow us access the the Bionics bootloader. The second and probably more realistic one is a rooted TB vs and unrooted Bionic. They both have 1gig processors, yes the Bionic is dual core but that's moot right now in anything but benchmarks. So thats a wash I think. The TB has 768megs, while the Bionic has 512 supposedly. But the Bionic has DDR2 and the TB does not. How much of a difference does that make or is that a wash too becasue the TB has more? So that's the question, which phone should perform better in the long run. I'm still trying to figure out if I should wait for the Bionic or not. I like the TB, I just don't like the price right now and I don't want to be stuck with it if for whatever reason the Bionic ends up being much better. It would also be great to know the final specs on the Bionic, but thats a different story.
