    I'm just eagerly waiting for this to drop so I can possibly sell off my D2G and pick up a D3 for little to no loss. Being out of date is not a concern with enough dev support, because look where it got the D2G. A basically fully functional CM7? Droid 2 Global does. Plenty of custom roms? That too. Gotta love its band unlock though.

    Gonna get this phone next week for my wife so that she can use the 4gLTE. If it had been out at the time of my Bionic, I probably would have gotten it instead. Consider me oldschool, but I prefer the keyboard to a touchscreen.

    I would never use a touchscreen LCD to replace the keyboard on my computer. Give me mechanical keys any day of the week!

    Wow, this is going to be a tough call. I'd love to have a physical keyboard, but the lack of removable battery and the whole locked bootloader thing is a bummer. It's still probably better to go with the official Google phone for various reasons, but this one sure is tempting. It's going to be tough on me to figure out which one to pick next week!

    Why is everyone complaining because it "only" has a 4 inch screen? Not every phone needs to be huge

    It should have a removable battery.

    Looking at the pic it says both the sim and sd cards are behind cover and point to the back of the phone.

    Then why would they put it there instead of on the side like on the razr?

    Narrower screen means less room for the system board, necessitating a change in design.

    Im not saying that it absolutely won't have a removable battery, in fact I really hope it does, but pointing to the removable cover as proof is not logically sound.

    I've just never seen a device where if it didn't have a removable battery you accessed that stuff by removing the entire back. They always put it on the sides or on top. In the case of some devices like the iPhone or the WP7 Nokias.

    It just seems weird to me.

    Also bear in mind that although this has the same hardware specs as the Razr, its very likely that the design is based off the Droid3(Same size screen and nearly identical form factor, only the shape changes to 'match' the Razr), which had the SIM and MicroSD cards internally mounted.

    Now to be fair, it also had a removable battery, but as I read in several of the pre-launch Razr threads, its progress in the arena of 'built-in obsolescence'. If you cant replace the battery yourself, its pressure to buy a new phone in 2 years when the battery starts loosing its oomph rather than paying huge fees (if even offered) to have the battery replaced by the factory.
