Technically an unlocked/overclocked thunderbolt should blow the atrix away with stock motoblur. Or at least be at similar performance, they really bogged down the UI with motoblur and 2.2, upgrading the tbolt to 2.3, some custom kernels, and overclocks makes it a pretty snappy phone.
I was actually thinking about getting the tbolt because it has an unlocked bootloader, but I waited to hear the exact specs and details from the S2. And I'm glad I did, it is a better phone internally, but unlocked as well.
Moto recently said they have listened to the customers and are going to offer an unlocked bootloader in future phones. But they have said things along these lines before, with no follow through, not to mention they also said if the carriers allowed the change. Fine print that could kill the whole deal. Users on OCN average a fair amount of computer knowledge, with that said they should never buy a locked down phone, the benefits for the opposite are too huge.Edited by Grief - 5/3/11 at 12:03pm
