    Well, my Droid (with overclocking, compcache and other tweaks) strains to run 24+ widgets and the equivalent of 12 or so homescreens....

    So 4 times the ram and a dual-core should easily handle twice my current home set-up. I could add another 5 screens with stock/portfolio widgets.. muahahahhaa

    Is Verizon still expected to announce the Etna at the CES? I feel like we keep hearing about the Olympus and AT&T and only the previous reports that the Etna would follow "a month or two later"

    Rumor: Motorola Olympus to be revealed by AT&T next week

    Rumor: Motorola Olympus to be revealed by AT&T next week



    Did you know that we are giving away up-to 100 iPads, Samsung Galaxy S tablets, and Blackberry Playbooks on January 17th? Enter on Facebook at PhoneDog Sweepstakes on Facebook to receive your ticket numbers today!

    Motorola's Tegra 2-powered Olympus is one of the most anticipated Android phones around, especially for AT&T customers, and a new rumor suggests that we'll be seeing it unveiled as soon as next week. A source claims that ATT will announce the Olympus at a press conference next week, although it's not clear when they'll actually be launching the thing. A possible January release has been kicked around a bit, and even appeared briefly on AT&T's Facebook page, so don't be surprised if the Olympus lands shortly after its debut.

    Although things will likely change after the launch of the Verizon iPhone, as of now AT&T isn't really known for its wide selection of high-end Android phones, which explains why a lot of people are excited about the Olympus. With rumored specs like a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2, 4-inch display, and perhaps even Gingerbread, the Olympus will instantly be catapulted to the top of AT&T's Android lineup when it arrives, even if it is sporting MOTOBLUR. How many of you are looking forward to the launch of the Olympus (or its rumored Verizon LTE brother, the Etna)?

    I have been sitting on my upgrade since the end of July and was very anxious about this and the Thunderbolt. I am actually kind of happy that it is Launching on AT&T 1st. That way everyone can see rather they want the Thunderbolt or the Etna. I imagine I will be getting the Etna.

    I thought the LG had HDMI too? That phone arena spec list says it doesnt.

    Guess we can chalk that one up to being over excited....lol

    Cant wait til my upgrade in Apr.

    Five days and we should see the real specs. That is horribly incomplete regarding the star. Especially considering the Star is coming with the same Tegra2. Yeah, I'll wait the five days for CES confirmation of LG specs. Plus, rumor out there is of the LG B being shown as well.

    For me it will come down to when the Motorola device is released. I will be buying either the HTC Thunderbolt or the Motorola phone - whichever comes out first. If I don't like whatever comes out first - I will just trade it in on the other device.

    CES can't get here soon enough though.

    Happy New Year everyone!!!

    I might not be balling but if I buy either this full retail and sell my droid x for atleast 300, then I wouldnt be breaking the bank, just might have to buy both the thunderbolt, then this and decide which is better.
