    Agreed. I dont get the whole craze for a front facing camera like all of a sudden its a cant live without feature. Its nothing Ill even use. Just give me a dual core LTE phone with a 4 inch screen and make it as small as possible. Dont need a front facing camera, dont need a keyboard.

    So someone please correct me if I am wrong, but it appears that both the Optimus Black and Optimus 2X are both going to T-Mobile, while the Revolution will go to Verizon. Does that sound right?

    That's too bad, I was hoping the Black could be thrown in the mix on VZW, so now it looks like its a choice between the Thunderbolt, Bionic, and Revolution for those in the market in the next 1-4 months.

    Seems about right. Revolution seems like a winner so far. I wish it had 1gb memory though

    What does the Revolution have? 512 like the Bionic? I'm anxious to do a head-to-head comparison between the two and see which wins, matching up spec to spec. They seem "fairly even" right now, except the potential for the developer community, which no one really knows yet just how locked down they will each be. Might come down to UI and a couple key specs/capabilities.

    Guess death will have to do, since 4G coverage are is seriously lacking, check out Verizons 4G map in your area, you will be in for a big suprize, 4G won't have a foothold for anothe two years.

    Just saw a demo video of the LG Revolution. It looks to be "Binged"! FAIL! Why Verizon? Can't you take the hint that NO ONE likes Bing? It is a far inferior browser to Google. Hopefully this will change by the time production units roll out, but I'm not holding my breath. Looks like I'll be going with the Thunderbolt or Bionic.
