    Is everyone running out to get the much anticipated tbolt or is anybody waiting for the bionic?
    I plan on waiting, just curious what others are planning on doing.

    Unless the bootloader is unlocked on the Bionic, which I doubt, I'll be going with the TB

    Lol... I think everyone's "waiting" for the Thunderbolt... Once its actually available, I bet a bunch of people are going to jump on it. It is "first" afterall... Altho if I were up for an upgrade, I'd be going Bionic.

    Bionic for sure, locked boot loader or not, it's a nice phone.

    Bionic for sure, althought im not eligable for upgrade anytime soon since I just got my D2G a couple months ago, I may buy one off ebay after its been out for awhile tho. If I woulda known about the bionic sooner I woulda waited for my upgrade cause I want that dualcore soooo bad. And even if it does have a locked bootloader at first, someone will figure it out, just like they did with the D2G, just flashed fission to it and there working on more roms. A couple months ago, that wasn't possible

    I'll get the Thunderbolt of Stealth....whichever comes first. I have abandoned Motorola and won't touch them with a 10' pole anymore.

    I have another upgrade coming in October. If the upgrades are still available, I'll get another phone then also. Whatever the flavor of the day is at the time.

    At the rate verizon is going, the bionic wont be out until january. So thunderbolt. I like the unlocked bootloader too. I admit these rumored issues are worrying me about the TB

    This ^^ although in the long run I'll probably get the TB no matter what.

    Thunderbolt will perform better over all IMO due to the increased RAM. Also having two CPU's doesn't mean much if you're castrated by a lack of RAM.

    Ram is what had me all about the tb in the beginning but the dual core as well as a few other things has me waiting for the bionic. Also not having an upgrade till july has alot to do with it. I'm also into the smaller size of the phone. I don't care about a big screen rather the performance. As for the bootloader even if its locked I imagine they'll be ways around it.

    dont think the difference in ram will matter as the bionic will have 512 ddr from what im aware of, making it a better phone. but thats just my op
