    While I can certainly understand the sentiments, and I love my D1 and the fact I can toss on lots of ROMs, I think that the true base of people running custom ROMs is rather small. In the real world (i.e. NOT on a forum devoted to modifying phones) I'd love to see what the number of modded D1s vs stock D1s is. The D1 is a dream phone for devs as it is basically unbrickable so if there is any one phone to give a true feeling for what is out there that would be the phone.

    I also have to wonder as Gingerbread and Honeycomb roll around if I will truly need a phone with an unlocked bootloader. Rooting will give me 95% of what I want, I am not so sure the other 5% is worth ditching some of these wonderful devices over.

    The question is how long will it take for those to roll out to your device.

    Another question would be security. I love custom ROMs (I've been running them for ages), but true full fledged ROMs (like for the D1, DI etc) you truly do not know if there is anything built into the ROM which could be mining data. Honestly we don't know much about many of these devs. Some even seem to have compromised principles, and while I don't think anyone is doing anything you really cannot be certain.

    Again, I am not saying anyone is doing this (again I run custom ROMs), but it is something to consider.

    Second thought is that perhaps Moto and others are just tired of people screwing up their phones and sending them in for replacements. If you don't think that happens, you certainly haven't really followed threads over the months.

    Seriously, somehow all of a sudden VZW has lower end phones? WTF is wrong with the Bionic??? Jeebus, in November / December people were DROOLING over the thought of half of these specs.
    Notice how I put it in quotes?? Every carrier has the option to pay the manufacturer extra money for a bit better "exclusive" phone than the other carriers. (Evo, iphone, droid...) the Atrix trumps this phone in many catagories and it mean vzw didn't want to pay the extra money to moto to get the best phone that they have in the first half of the year because their focus will be on the iphone. Not saying Bionic is a bad phone, just a shame that the amazing accessories and capabilities will be going to AT&T. I think my point is made. And I have yet to drool over any phone.

    The Atrix has more compelling accessories that you can buy for it, and it has more ram because of one of those accessories. Bionic has a 4.3in screen and 8 megapixel camera compared to the Atrix's 4in and 5 megapixel. Other than that, they are the same device. You all are that dissapointed in the Bionic? Lol, wow.

    • I don't know who u are, I don't know what u want. If u are looking for a ransom, I can tell u I don't have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills that I have acquired over the course of watching Chuck Norris in Walker, Texas Ranger, skills that make me a nightmare for people like u.

    I don't know how you can say "many catagories." It can be docked to computer and more memory (necessary for docking). But other than that capability, I don't see any place it "trumps" it.

    You're right, being able to use your phone as a laptop (netbook) replacement is really nothing. Just a silly accessory.
