Well, doesn't the TB have the 2nd gen Snapdragon? That will definitely help a lot.
I feel like it'll be fast enough to handle whatever app you throw at it, but we don't necessarily know until actual tests.
Evo - MIUI 1.1.28

New HTC Sense
New Snapdragon, which is more power efficient, has more potential for overclocking, and is just all around better than the old one.
SLCD screen rather than the EVO's LCD screen (those who complain it's not Super AMOLED: remember what happened with the Dinc...).
Probably more phone memory and internal storage
32 gb microSD card included (whoa, eat that iphone, this'll probably be cheaper than the 32 gb version, too).
It's a pretty decent step up. Not a huge one, but yeah...
Dual core is nice, but we don't know when an Android version that supports it fully will come out (rumored to be Honeycomb).

It's not an Evo since the Evo is not the family of devices hat HTC built these off of. Each one is unique to its own specifications based on what the carrier wanted and what was able to be offered at that time.
Similar in shape, size, weight, but internals are updated so that does not make them the same. Sprint is likely working on their next Evo or maybe it won't be an Evo it could be called something else.

Playing with a friends EVO is what instantly turned me off of blackberry. So, if the Tbolt is anything like the EVO, I'll be very happy. Keep in mind I don't know much about Android yet*PHILLIES* *FLYERS* *EAGLES*"The Island brought us here"...got LOST

It is like the evo + dolby srs a kickstand a better CPU but smaller batter and more RAM and no ugly circles around the home keys. Its like the desireHD but with a front facing camera, larger battery and better CPU. Its also like the DInc but a lil bigger better CPU different battery size and differnt version of sense. You can compare it to Droid X but its not, my point is it's a thunderbolt and different than everything else.Im T rop per and I approve this message
Thanks for watching = T

I dont think the Bionic is the second version of the Droid X. Moto and Verizon did not have a problem rolling out the Droid 2. While Bionic is better then the X I think when the X's replacement rolls out it will be call the Droid X2 just because of the huge amount of sells that Droid X brought Verizon, just like the original Droid.
but......I could be completely wrong as well!

If the Bionic as with the DX has an eFuse chip ... I won't buy one. I've had the DX since the day it was released and I thought I could deal with the hardware being DRM'd ... frankly I can't. It bothers me on a visceral level.
I think I'll be going for the Thunderbolt when it comes out. Android doesn't do SMP and rumors of when it will do not fill me with joy. Also, I've found the Blur just sucks. The widgets are horrible, the hacking they did to the SMS/MMS app (conversation) broke 2 of the utils I love and took a month to get resolved and a whole host of other stuff.
I think unless HTC starts screwing the pooch ... I'll give them a shot.
