    So the tbolt is pretty much it for single core, eh?

    For single core phones, it looks to me like the tbolt might be its final, shining, hour. And if the unlocked bootloader rumor is true...(or at least I think I read that xda said it was as open as nexus/droid)

    It would make sense for it to be unlocked. We've seen how much longer the og droid has lasted than expected because of the openness, it would be logical for the tbolt to continue to be competitive with dual core phones by being open to the dev community.

    I'm not sure if the makers of the phone want their users to mod their phones. I'm not sure if Moto planned on the OG Droid to have such large support for flashing, but I don't believe that was their intent.

    As for last single core phones I don't think it will be. I think there will be more new models with single cores coming out and saving the dual core for their "top end" phones

    Ah, yea, I see what your saying. However, do you think development will continue on single core devices? Or is the tbolt as good as its gonna get?

    Certainly from this point, I doubt there will be any more single core flagship models.

    The DX2 and D3 will be dual core, not sure on the Inc2. But yes they will be 3g only.

    I certainly hope d3 is dual core. If not, I might give consideration to the xperia pro. Hell, I might still think about xperia pro if d3 is too far out from release.
