    I'm sure there probably isn't yet, but is there any info about a verizon launch with LTE? My Droid 2 is painfully slow, and I'm ready for an upgrade :-) Bionic only has 512 ram.. It's not enough for my D2 so that's out I guess. This galaxy 2 looks awesome if it hits vz with lte!

    All the original Galaxy S's hit VZW i'm sure this one will too, and im sure it will have LTE, but that's just a guess.

    The fascinate is part of the original galaxy s line up of phones.

    Okay that's what I thought. Does that mean that they'll be making a second version of the fascinate?

    I'm hoping that Verizon announces this phone, hopefully with LTE, soon. I'm looking to switch to Verizon from Sprint, but want to wait for this phone.

    512mb DDR2 ram is better than the Non ddr2 512 on your droid2.

    Bing contract ended jsyk. Tbolt doesn't have Bing but it isn't a Droid phone.

    I think it will be. There was a blog post awhile back that had a screenshot of the Verizon system list, and the "Droid Thunderbolt" was listed.

    Verizon is getting the chunky single core i510 (Stealth) first. So it will pprobably be a at least until fall when the "Fascinate 2" comes out. Maybe September 9 to make it one year from the Fascinate release.

    I agree with this regardless of the leaked Verizon roadmap.

    So, any more updates on this? Or should we just go ahead and buy a Charge if we want S-AMOLED+ with LTE?

    Didn't the Commando just launch with Bing integration yesterday? Would have been a great phone for my son, but so hard to bring myself to purchase an Android with Bing on it.

    In addition, I was looking to the Bionic, but would definitely consider this phone. Currently have the OG Droid, and was a little upset that nothing is launching on Verizon with stock Android.

    I hear a lot of frustration from Sammy owners about updates. Any reason to think that they will be better with this phone?

    They've been great about updates recently. The international Galaxy S1 already had a Gingerbread release, and I'm running a Gingerbread leak. They seemed to have really stepped up their game.

    @ragnarokx thanks for the info. Anyone have a decent idea when this will be out on Verizon?

    Have been itching to upgrade for the last few months, but I convinced myself to wait for dual core, and to see if anything interesting was announced at Google I/O.

    For sure, remember, the Samsung Epic got WiMax 4g, so fore sure the majority of these Galaxy S2 devices will get 4g models on each carrier, unless T-Mobile just decides to do what they did with the Vibrant and wait 6 months to make it 4g. These devices will be 10x better with 4g, and even then they are already amazing as hell.

    Even if this isn't 4g, it is still a beast of a phone. But I really hope Verizon won't wait like they did for the Fascinate with this phone.

    If this phone has LTE you can bet that Verizon would sell it for $300 with a two year contract. They will also load the phone down with bloatware.

    I don't see the point in VZW launching this device without LTE, to be honest. This phone is definitely the latest and greatest, but getting it with just 3g at this point would really hold it back. I wouldn't imagine that people looking for the latest and greatest device (which this seems to be) would really consider a non-LTE device on VZW by the time this launches. I understand it would be easier and cheaper for them, I just don't see the point. Then again, reports still indicate that the iPhone5 will likely be launching without LTE as well, but its not like Apple fans have other choices the way Android does.

    But it seems as if LTE makes the phone thicker. I don't know if it's just the design but the Thunderbolt and Droid Charge are thick in comparision to their 3g counterparts

    I will take a little thicker phone to get LTE on the SGS II. There's no way VZW would release a phone this awesome as 3g only when I am sure At&t, Sprint and T-mo will release their versions as 4g phones.
