Calm down my friend, good things come to those who wait! I'm sure HTC and Verizon has gotten tons of calls from thunderbolt users and there are tired of them calling so we have to be next on the list! I rather have a solid build of gingerbread than one that needs a update after we get it! Most people who have stock ginger tell me it eats your battery...... So for thunderbolt users that's not something to look forward too when our battery is already getting tap dance on now everytime we use our 4g!
HTC has gone through many builds of Gingerbread and the fact that it's not out yet should tell you something. I'd rather have a stable build of GB than a rushed version just for the sake of having it. Just wait it out, it will be out when it's READY.
Do I want it. Yes. Do I need it. No. Like all others I would have to say I would much rather have a stable build. A friend got the GB update for his Evo 4G and his battery life improved like crazy. I hope they can do that for us. But I am not holding my breath.
Yup, found it! Old RAZR..... Seriously, I still have one, an old crappy V3a from the Alltel days. Always wanted one when they were the bomb, but was stuck on Sprint (Nextel at the time) and couldn't afford switching (or the cost of the phone). Wow, what a difference just looking at it compared to the Thunderbolt! Funny how things go, cell phones started out like a big brick (tethered to power in your vehicle), then the clam shell, now the candy bar..... got a bit of a sweet tooth these days! Ugh, I forgot how much I grew tired of the clam shell (opening/closing). Back in the drawer it goes.... ah, how cool the Thunderbolt looks and feels in hand now (GB or not)!
The roms available on Froyo are greater than any Gingerbread Verizon will send you because it'll still be loaded down with crapware. Get tired of it? Try another one. I couldn't care less about GB until it's stable enough on the other side.
