    My biggest concern is the bloatware. The amount that was on my Droid 2 wasn't too bad, but that phone was released in the summer of 2010 and Verizon has gotten downright ridiculous with it on most of the phones it has released since then.

    In Verizon's defense, they did move to making some of the bloatware uninstallable, but point taken, it has grown to ridiculous proportions, specifically the V Cast apps.

    And BTW, from the screenshots I've seen they've added even more bloatware than on the D3/Bionic/RAZR. It's one thing to want your customers to have the best possible experience, but it's another thing to unnecessarily dictate to your customer what have on their phone to get that experience by shoving it down their throats, hence like 98% (if not 100%)of their preinstalled apps can be found on Android Market.

I don't think that Motorola will just let HTC (Rezound) and Google/Samsung (Galaxy Nexus) 1up them in the HD screen department like that.

    It wouldn't surprise me if the summer release of a D5 were to have a 1.5g processor, the RAZRMAX housing and battery, with the 720p 4.5" display and the 13mp camera from the Chinese RAZR. Even quad cores and Jellybean(?)... nah.

    Think I need a cheap used T-bolt to tide me over...

    It's paid advertising - like a pop-up on a website that won't go away. Blockbuster bought that space on your phone. Can't see vzw doing that out of the goodness of its heart.

    This "paid advertising" from a bankrupt company smacks of desperation. But whatever. I'm thankful that there is a hacking community out there that has been able to find ways for us to get this junk off our phones.

    The Droid 10 that should ship next February can do your laundry.

    So if it takes as much as a full second, at computer speeds, for the device to respond to the button press, then the button input is going back into the OS for processing. If the software is funky at that time... "unpredictable results".
    If the time delay is very short and always the same, and it shuts down hard like a PC, maybe that's in the switch... "10-15 seconds"? No way!

    This function actually would not have use the OS to function. This would more likely be a function of embedded software on an IC chip. I have worked in electronics for over 15 years and having a function wait for 15 cycles (seconds) before executing does not require interaction with an OS. Not trying to be arguementative, just a little FYI. Don't get me wrong, this function would still be software controlled and could possibly fail, but it would not have anything to do with what is happening with the OS.

    Side notes:
    1. I'm more skeptical about the battery lasting as long as required on any given day due to the 1st gen 4G chip in the phone.
    2. I'm not impressed with Moto's screen choice.
    3. Most importantly, as much as I generally love Moto's hardware, I just won't be buying another bloated phone with a locked bootloader. Come on Moto, set the Droid free!

    Actually, that's what I'm waiting on/hoping for...kinda/sorta. With the RAZRMAX in development with it's HD screen, I'd be a fool to buy the Droid 4 and get burned by the Droid 5/RAZRMAX variant with a slide-out keyboard after being burned with the Droid 4 releasing just a couple of months after the Droid 3. Specifically, I'll most likely wait to see if Motorola makes a phone that has the standard 1 GB of RAM, HD display, LTE, dual-core or quad-core processor, and slide-out QWERTY goodness.
