    There's no such thing as a "thunderbolt". there are lightning bolts of course, but thunder is just a sound. Congratulations, you just bought a phone with a dumb name!

    Of course that still doesn't mean I'm not jealous though...

    So is Merriam Webster like an "authority" or something? Go back to your library nerd!

    I can see a little mean spiritedness sneaking in here. How about keeping this decent. Try not to antagonize each other too much.

    no i understand. i felt the same way when i heard the name. i don't really think it should be a thing, and mostly my problem was with the fact that as a marketing tool to describe a fast phone, you'd think they'd want to give it the name of lightning and not it's significantly slower companion.

    Maybe it was just an off handed thought, and I didn't even really think before I posted it... *foot in mouth* lol. The tbolt is definitely an awesome phone.

    Don't sweat it, think everyone is still good. Just wanting to check. How is the Droid 2 holding up? Still a really good phone in it's own right. I'm still stuck with my Incredible until I see what else is coming down the line.

    Definitely wanting a bigger screen, but besides that, its great. I don't need 4g so that's not something I'm too worried about. I probably should have bought a dx, but buying this phone was kind of hard to justify at the time, so I didn't want to spend much more. I think the thing that bothers me the most isn't the phone, but just how it feels like an afterthought to the Droid instead of a true sequel.

    The Incredible is one great phone.

    Maybe an Incredible2?

    That is actually the top of my list right now. I honestly would rather stay with 3G at this point, and the 4.3 is a touch large for my liking. The 4.0 would be the perfect size for me. I still can't believe HTC still hasn't corrected the charging issues. Wish they would get that fixed. But the Inc 2 is definitely the main that I am looking at now.

    And actually, I should clarify. I do like my Incredible, just the charging issue is my only gripe. Rooting it definitely helped. Praying to be able to root the Inc 2 if I pick that up next.

    If the Dx has a nicer screen ill probably go for that next time around, I don't mind the larger size, it makes everything nicer. But if the pixel density is still crap then I'll probably look at the Inc 2 or the d3, although I hardly use my KB as it is.

    Keep an eye on the Incredible Forum. We're trying to keep any information we can find posting up over there. Still waiting on a release date, but I'm betting April May timeframe. If you look up the Incredible S on HTC's website, you can see the specs and all of the info on it. Looks promising.
