Seriously, who told Motorola that tgey could build smartphones?

Before now their only attempt at a smartphone was the MOTO Q and Q9C, before that was the overdone Razr line (not a smartphone but their only discernable success since the STAR TAC.

They all come preloaded with manufacturer and carrier BLOATWARE ie MOTOBLUR. They are for the most part thoughtlessy engineered pieces of crap that are a cheap knock off of what their competitors have already done. You would think since GOOGLE created then GIFTED the OS to them (Android) by making it freeware that they would of spent more time on developing the hardware. But no, they jumped on the Android bandwagon and spent development money on advertising and licensing of Lucasart's Droid name because they were just that insecure about their inferior equipm...

Just a 4G X2?

is that all this phone is going to turn out to be? Why the wait? The specs sure sound like a 4G variant of their X series....

About the Motorola Droid Bionic...

Which is what these discussions are supposed to be about...

So far, it is a GREAT device. Extremely fast and suprisingly stable (for a Motorola Android phone).

Cool

Just like the thunderbolt

I'm willing to bet this phone will be like the thunderbolt. People couldn't wait (including myself) for it to come out. It was delayed several times and when it finally came out there were hardly any lines at the stores and if came with only HALF of the features that were promised. Here it is July and there's no gingerbread update, no skype, and it's like finding a needle in a haystack for extended battery cases. This phone works better since the last update but it still falls behind the other htc phones. So as far as this phone being a big hit I'm not going to hold my breath.

I give up

Considering this will have a $299 price tag for the VZW crapware plus Advanced Blur (or whatever the hell they are calling it) - I now officially pass. I picked up the T-Bolt instead. It may be "old" but its on the market and has 4G. Moto would rather play games with release dates than getting the product to market with the customers. The only phone worth paying the $299 for was the OG Droid because it was vanilla Android AND no crapware.

Several "X" Features - Vital for Bionic!

I started with the first Droid and upgraded to the X when I discovered Swiftkey Ap, which made the glass keyboard "Road Ready." Now, Motorola, I strongly request two small X features that must carry over to the Bionic. 1. Any camera worthy of "the Road" has an index finger activated Shutter Release. Please give me the X's good, Red Button, Shutter Release on side w/ the volume button for Zooming the great 8 meg camera. Pushing a glass button with one's thumb just won't do the job! 2. For equipment safety on "the Road" please keep the wrist strap Loop on the bottom corner. Simple but very important. When my Grandson plays Fruit Ninja, I say "put the Strap on your wrist, James!" Thanks!

Facebook interface for the Bionic vs Thunderbolt

I wonder will the contact interface be like the HTC where you can see your facebook friends photos without actually getting on the facebook app.

Motorola Droid Bionic vs. Other Verizon 4G Phones

What does everyone think about the Motorola Droid Bionic compared to the other Verizon 4G phones coming out that were shown on CES. I would say that I would rather have the Thunderbolt but it doesn't have a dual-core processor. What do you guys think?

This phone is no more...

Could it be? I've done a fair amount of reading on the web. From what I can see, this phone is be replaced even before its release. I'd much rather have a cancellation rather than end up with a turd for 2 years. wht do you think? Any bets??

Hmm

Delays that long usually mean, 'Oh crap we broke something and gotta fix it!'

Damn, I was seriously looking forward to this phone as a replacement to my Droid X. Now gotta wait till the fall, though that might be a good thing, if they can fix what they broke. Whatever that may be.

Why no gingerbread?

What is with this trend of not adding gingerbread as the OS instead of froyo? I mean it's out, it's available, so why not use it? Gingerbread is said to be faster, more powerful, and more energy efficient so would not having it on a 4G phone be a good thing? Confused

FM Radio

I hope it shows up with an FM radio. I use my radio in my Droid X.

Moto, PLEASE keep FM radios in your cell-phone designs!

Phone will not be so good

So riddle me this. Why do people trip on this phone because its a dual core processor when it only has 512mhz of RAM??? The htc incredible had the same RAM as that....now unlike the bionic the Thunderbolt has one processor butWAY MORE RAM 768....making it a smoother running device. A phone can have ten processors but with no memory space to do the processing its SOL. also less thn a gig internal memory meaning VERY limited app space. thunderbolt can hold 8 times the amount of aps.
