HTC phone are pretty decent with battery despite having a lower capacity. The stand-by life is quite good on HTC phones I have owned (Incredible, Thunderbolt, Rezound). My Rezound with a 1620mAH battery gets good moderate/ mixed usage life with okay heavy usage.

Saying the Thunderbolt has good battery life is kinda hilarious

No. Ultimate phone is the international DLX that is going to be released, most likey with SD card slot like the J Butterfly.

For those of you wanting a review She claims the battery lasts a day easily, so those battery comments will go down the drain.

New HTC flagship device? Don't expect more than 1 OS upgrade in the future for it - ala Desire HD.

If you mean Japan, HTC Butterfly J will be released in December there. So, no. it's not yet released in Asia.

you forgot non removable small capacity battery on the cons side it looks very very nice (awesome design and astonishing screen) but IMO i rather get G Note 2 (i said in my opinion) b/c it has sd card slot with 64GB support, removable battery with much bigger capacity, multiview, and etc etc....
