    if it had LTE it would be a no brainer.
    id buy it on launch day.
    but with the lack of 4g, and with the pentile screen, im thinking of waiting

    ive had both the droid 2 and og.i dont understand why they are sabotaging themselves with this. im actually considering switching to sprint because i really really really would prefer a qwerty keyboard.

    I'm getting it with my upgrade. Then with my mom's upgrade I'm getting the Bionic and giving her the Droid. Then with my dad's upgrade I'm getting the Nexus Prime. Perfect solution, though I may well keep D3 if I like it enough, because I REALLY like having a physical keyboard.

    I am going to get the D3 and test it out. The KB will be handy for Flash content, Quake ports and game emulators (no more accidents hitting capacitive nav buttons). If the Play had similar specs- I would have bought it already.

    All 4G devices so far have been problematic and have to be rebooted in order to properly switch and turn off 3G/4G (seems best to wait for second generation radios). The .3" smaller display should look sharper and be better on battery (lack of 4G also will help battery). Probably cost $100 less than Bionic ($200 vs $300).

    My gTablet confirms that 512mb ram works great with a dual core IF allocated correctly. Curious of the D3 in that regard. DX2 has great benchmarks too, but does not stop the low ram issues, audio pops and random reboots.

    Both the D3 and Bionic apparently have the same 4430 and 16gb internal storage.

    If the D3 has flaky firmware like the DX2, it would not bode well for the Bionic. Poor Gingerbread update quality, DX2 issues and a bad D3 effort would not be the best trend to extrapolate the Bionic with.

    Some of the antenna modules reside in that area, I do believe. There tends to be little if any free space in these type of devices. The chin is not their for aesthetics. Still annoying though. Why not make the device a 4.3" if the footprint has the space, due to the chin?

    Seems counter-productive if LTE is the litmus. Sprints data coverage in that regard is very weak and even their 3G is not very good. Most areas for our company phones is 2G roaming courtesy of VZW towers.

    Would not hurt to try the D3 out. We are about a year away and another LTE chip generation away from stable and more power conservative 4G.

    Me too. It's hard to decide. I like the droid but the bionic has better feature including 4G. I'm not hot on the hype of 4G just yet, but having the bionic may help me adapt.

    Any word on the bootloader? Moto is really getting left behind because of this with ROM builders and themers... Especially when all the other devices are pretty easy to open up.....

    Can someone answer a few questions about the d3. One will it have the same CPU as the bionic as well as the same amount of ram? I have a dx now and don't have issues with it but I like the 4 inch screen and front facing camera . I get the impression the d3 is similar to the bionic. That being said the d2 was suppposed to have the same CPU as the x so I got my wife one and it was laggiest phone I've used I mean terrible I hated it she hated it. I just don't wanna get got by vzw again.
