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??

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 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.

DUal core, work phone...

this is the only phone verizon offers with a dual core processor? And that should make the phone faster? More memory?

I settled for the fascinate because of the price. I don't want to make that mistake again.

I have 13,520 sku's. And 3x's as many batch codes. We warehouse food, dry, caned only. Nothing cold or frozen. When items come with in. six months of date it goes on sale, bulk first, case pick what's left. I deal with every grocery store, restaurant, and other food warehouses across the US. We also export food, there fore deal with the USDA to get caned meats certified. People who are on probation,.last warning, for missing to much work. Osha reportable's. Pictures of employees .... Doing doughnuts on fork trucks... Ect. Shoping...

Bionic Specs

I have gone to every site I can find and none of them address the radio installed in this phone. I am trying to determine if it has an FM radio in it. Most of the new phones do so I assume this one does too. However, nowhere does it say there is one.
Any comment on this question?

Upgrade time!!!!!!!!!!!!

SO my upgrade is in july!! I have a droid eris (ROOTED-overclocked-806mhz) and this is like the best upgrade man kind can offer me lol. UNLESS the HTC merge comes out carrying the Droid moniker and dual core processors but this will work too lol. I just really need a device with a physical qwerty keybaord offering perfomance like this ya kno. My eris is overclocked to 806 mhz (anything more and it reboots over and over) and it runs beautifully (htc should've given it a 1ghz chip) anyway this is like THE phone to upgrade to right? Very Happy Drooling

I just want to make a disclaimer about our storage memory number.

The demo units we tried clearly had 4 GB of built-in flash memory, with 2.7 available to the user.

Motorola claims 16 GB.

Based on past experience, Motorola's spec sheet could be wrong. (It wouldn't be the first time.) But it's also possible that early prototypes have 4 GB, and the final shipping version will have 16 GB. Perhaps a decision was made late in development to change the memory spec.

We're looking into it and trying to get confirmation of the real number.

Kudos for the high-res LCD!

Thanks Motorola for being the first one to copy the iPhones high resolutions LCD! Most other manufacturers are still making the 800x480 pixels, which was nice for a 3.0" size LCD, but not anymore for 4.0" or 4.3" sizes!

But - Why still Android 2.2? Where is version 2.3?
