    Is it just me?..

    Or does the totally flat back on the Droid 3 with the camera protruding out seem like the wrong way to do it. For one, the speaker will be very muffled, and two the camera is gonna get scratched to sh*t.

    I like on the Droid 1 that there is a bevel on the edges to give the bottom of the device clearance. What are these engineers smokin?

    /end rant.

    Still anxiously waiting for the D3 or Bionic, I'm still deciding between the two.

    I think the Droid 1 was like that too. The Droid 1's speaker was so good n loud it didnt matter tho.

    So maybe it will be muffled, cuz the the Droid 1's speaker was more exposed. Buts it hard to say until the phone gets in ppl's hands.

    Using a droid 1 myself, there is an angled edge on each end (top/bottom) that gives clearance on the back when layed on a flat surface. It's not a deal breaker, just an annoyance that they didn't keep that simple and smart design the way it was. Iphone is the worst offender about this, set it on a table it will scratch no matter what.

    The speaker HAS to be fine. No way they could mess that up. The camera looks like it will be okay because it looks recessed.

    lol...I never noticed that before. That lil design difference probably made a big difference too for the speaker and camera lense while lying the phone on its back.

    If you look at the side-view (5th Picture on DL), you can see it barely protrudes, I doubt it'll make that much of an impact on anything. lol Just don't slide your phone around on rough surfaces.

    Saw the pic. Hopefully it should have a slight, slight, slight tilt to it

    I have always put some type of thin case on my phone and the D3 will not go unprotected so it should provide enough of a raised surface to prevent scratches. The bigger concern is if the battery door and the lens cover are not all one piece like we have seen on countless other phones. That could be the issue.
