The HTC ThunderBolt connects to Verizon’s 4G LTE network at lightning-fast speeds. This fact alone makes the ThunderBolt an impressive piece of hardware, especially for users who routinely run high-bandwidth apps such as video chat, online gaming, and HD video streaming.

MobileBurn.com – The Samsung Focus S is the second of two new Windows Phone 7.5 smartphones released by AT&T and Samsung this fall. Featuring a 4.3-inch, Super AMOLED Plus display and an 8.5mm thick frame, the Focus S is a dead ringer for the Galaxy S II Android smartphones from Samsung. It is powered by a 1.4GHz, single-core processor and has 16GB of internal storage, but lacks microSD expansion – like most Windows Phone smartphones. The Focus S has the same 8 megapixel autofocus camera as found on the Galaxy S II models, but it can only record 720p video, instead of 1080p. The Focus S is available now from AT&T for 9.99 with a new two-year contract. More info: www.mobileburn.com
