Hmm... D4 vs. Nexus... Let me think about it... NEXUS... That took a lot of thought... NOT! xD
The Droid 4 looks sick! Too bad the screen wasn't atleast 4.3 inches. Does anyone know if the touch buttons are white like they are on my D1, or are they "invisible" unless activated?
I think D2 owners got it worse than the D3 owners will if this rumor pans out. If the D2G wasn't the ultimate kick in the jewels, I don't know what is lol :P

After having the OG since launch I feel about slide out keyboards as I do capacitive buttons...OBSOLETE. Just as the world will one day be devoid of books, we will also see the extinction of hard keyboards. Don't get me wrong, I love the older keyboards that had big, loud buttons (the satisfaction of audible confirmation ) however if you don't keep an open and ever-evolving mind when it comes to technology, you're lost in the dust of changing times. Nexus for me for the time being!
I've decided that for me, the constant viewing of the new devices so close together, is a bad time investment as I will wind up in that constant I want state...lol so I'm stopping with the razr...Then if something COMPLETELY different comes out, then maybe I will consider. I have too many as it is. Verizon and the competitors have gotten what they wanted out of me for a while. Time to enjoy what I have..Always loved and mainly stuck with Motorola so I'm good
Tapped on the edge of a RAZR...
Thanks guys, the commiseration (well, from some of you!) and fellowship are a huge support for me in this difficult time. I am beginning to see that I can deal with this. I'm strong enough.
Seriously, here is my new cynical outlook: why am I OK with the D3 (owned less than 2 months) when a clearly superior (I say that, because everyone I work with keeps asking me, "Are you upset about the new Droid???") phone is days away? The answer will sound absurd and impossible (yet compellingly truthy at the same time):
Because my contract is up in October of 2013 (gulp), and I KNOW IN TWO YEARS THAT WHATEVER PHONE IS/ARE AVAILABLE WILL TOTALLY KICK TODAY'S DROID 4 BUTT! HAH! So there. I also figure that EVEN IF I sold my D3 and bought the D4, by March of next year I'd be in a similar predicament. I will not be Verizon's and Motorola's tool!
Yeah, I keep telling myself that. And it's working, a little bit.

Motorola has shown over the last 4 months that they have no customer loyalty. I expect my phone to be obsolete by other phones, but to be replaced by the next generation of the same phone less than 6 months is down right insulting. The D3 will be my last Motorola product (after 6 years of buying their phones). Their only concern is getting new customers, once you've bought their phone, you are no longer useful to them. Even after I bought the OG Droid and then the N1 came out I was ok, but this is unforgiveable.
It would be great to see if Moto would grant some sort of trade in policy for D3 owners, but even then I'm not sure I would trust them again.
WHY WHY WHY only a 4" screen... WTF... if it's going to look like a damn razr then make it literally a razr with a keyboard... instead of a small razr with a keyboard >_>
BAH!!!! I will probably get rid of my bionic for this... the on screen keyboard is still driving me nuts.

They just can't win. People were clamoring for a new slider, many claiming they didn't care about LTE...and 6 months later when they can bring it out with LTE people are upset. People act like a marginal upgrade renders their 6 month old phone a POS.
