Default Atrix or Inspire (or other)?

I have a choice of either staying with my Atrix (that I love a lot), or going with the HTC Inspire.

What do you think?

HTC Inspire if you need it now, No lock of getting decent firmwares with the Atrix. Look at the XDA Forums, a developer just posted the poor outlook for the Atrix.

You can also wait for either the Samsung Infuse 4G or Samsung Galaxy S II come summer. The LG Thrill 4G is also launching soon.

That's the only bad thing about this phone. I can't really do any modding because of the lock down kernel.

Main reason im sticking to my Captivate for personal phone, my Atrix is work only. Thinking about requesting an Inspire untill the Infuse launches.

When is the galaxy s ii coming? Rumors say after September? Is this true? Or will it come before fall?

I'd say the answer to this question depends on your needs. The vast majority of those out there don't need to make any modifications to their phones. If you fit in to that category, then the atrix is a great phone.

Man, you folks with other companies other than verizon are lucky right now. Verizon has crap for dual core phones, and the bionic I was so patiently waiting for ain't coming till freakin October now.
