As much I like to get Thunderbolt more I wait more I think about having plan B. The biggest reason for having plan B is 4G data prices for Verizon. If it's anything more then $30 I am going else where.

What do you guys thing? Atrix, Inspire, which one would be close to TBolt?

Plan B: Get the 1 year upgrade and buy a new phone before 4g is even available in your area. (unless you live in a major city/airport).

Thanks, Isn't Atrix loaded (with dual core and 1 GB RAM) too?

If what I've heard is correct, the 1GB is so that you have 512 for the phone, and 512 for the dock. Not sure if that means that you will only have 512 available when you don't have it docked, but that's as much as I've heard.

If you care about the FFC, go for the Atrix, if you don't and you are already sold on the TB, then the Inspire will be the phone for you. My only concern with the Inspire is that you will probably be stuck with smaller batteries on it. The back doesn't come off, the battery slides out of a slot. I wonder how that will go.

Yeah it's dual core and has a gig of ram, not sure on now the ram works between the phone and the dock as the previous poster stated. But, it's Moto so you'll have to deal with Blur and a locked bootloader etc. if that's important to you at all.

As far as I'm concerned, AT&T dropped the ball by making the laptop dock $500 on its own (or $500 total with the phone + a tethering plan) which is outrageous considering it's just a shell with a screen, battery and keyboard. And they require the tethering plan even if you buy the laptop dock at full price if you want to use Firefox on it which is just ridiculous. I was planning on getting the Atrix till they announced that BS, so I'm sticking with TBolt now.

I'm starting to think no one in the US is willing to take it. Saw Engagdet's kinda poor review on it yesterday. LG probably has a high exclusive price attached to it.

FFC is most important to me so Inspire is out. So am I just left with Atris only? I don't want Tmobile.

My plan B is to stick with my Dinc until something better comes out on Verizon like the Dinc 2.
