    Lightbulb HTC Thunderbolt might be getting simultaneous voice and data on 3G after all

    We won't lie: we've been pretty skeptical of the rumors so far that the HTC Thunderbolt would have support for simultaneous voice and data over EV-DO -- SVDO, as it's known -- turned on. Perhaps more than any other US carrier, Verizon has a reputation for testing the living daylights out of devices and locking out hardware that doesn't meet its reliability standards, and so we were a little leery of some supposedly leaked internal communication not long ago letting reps know that although it'll be enabled, it shouldn't be discussed because it doesn't offer an "experience... consistent with [their] brand." Well, we've just been fed a second document that features the same wording, so it looks like this might be real after all -- and what's more, it's got updated verbiage stating that mobile hotspot capability will be available at launch, contrary to other leaks floating around today. This particular document is dated today, so we're feeling good that the information is current -- and if anything, it should get potential Thunderbolt buyers more excited than ever.

    Hmm.. SVDO. Still some pretty good latency in that standard, because there are no infrastructure hardware upgrades... only updated software. If this is indeed true, I'm really really (read: super) excited to hear how this works in the real world. On AT&T, simultaneous voice and data are MAJOR battery hogs. My routine tests show around 100-150MS latency on our 3G networks (HSPA/HSPA+). 1x-EV features lower latency, but not much lower.

    This is definitely a step up - not being able to reference a simple email while on the phone is a hassle

    Check box one of this link Thunderbolt vs Bionic - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum it is a comparison but it outlines quite a bit of the TB's functionality.
