I think the only thing that's known for sure right now is that it will have LTE 4G, a 4.3" screen, a front facing camera and a kickstand. The official announcement will come at CES on the 6th. There was one spec sheet leaked out of Germany that showed some crazy top-end stuff in this thing, but I suspect it won't be too much different from the EVO.

oh hey there Mr Thunderbolt that isn't coming.  No dual core and no hdmi means it'll be outdated as soon as it's released though with the devices coming from Motorola , LG and Samsung.  And hopefully that android 2.1 is a typo

If any of you are still interested, I've been trying to keep up with when the Thunderbolt might be getting released. I heard in-store that they were supposed to get a dummy model on 1/16, but they never received it. they were scheduled to get the test model this week, which apparently has held true, and have the phone for sale no more than 2 weeks after that. So from what I personally have heard, I would say that the Thunderbolt will launch at the end of Jan.

 

However, everything I can find online says that it is looking to be a month after that, the end of Feb.

 

There's a lot of info from the last week , and even the last two days, if you follow this Google link and check out the news section!

And I know this talks about more than just the Thunderbolt, but if you're thinking about the phone, this is a pretty great resource to see.

Sorry to even bring this up, but it's kind of sad that the Verizon iPhone is so outmatched. I know they are going to release a new one in just about 6 months, but there was WAY more potential for it after such a long wait to get it here. Anyways, it IS comforting to see that the phone I want beats out the iPhone in so many ways. :smileyhappy:
