    hahaha. True. But the Attrix has 512 reserved for the laptop dock, so basically the same as Bionic.
    Didn't moto say that they were going to put the laptop thing in the bionic too?

    So thunderbolt uses ddr ram? I guess i havent been reading up on these phones as much.

    Ok.

    Thanks for the replies guys

    Btw. It would be nice for it to be a little more than 512 but no complaints here. Im sure the community here will be able to speed things up with the roms wink wink

    Something about it coming to all smart phones that are released after June? but don't quote me on that, it's assumed and most likely it will come to the Bionic. And who says it's going to be the exact dock the Atrix uses, couldn't the dock have 512mb or even 1gb of DDR2 build into the dock that the Bionic uses when docked?

    But, AT&T priced the Atrix at $150 unless I'm mistaken...if that is true, don't you think Motorola wouldn't want Verizon to price it higher than the Tbolt to stay competitive especially if they didn't price their only other 4G phone that's essentially the same as the Droid Bionic. I think it's unlikely they'll price a phone the same as the Xoom...

    All smartphones use LPDDR, Low Power ddr which is smaller sized and more like old SDRAM than conventional DDR.

    This isnt the ddr2 you find in a computer, it is called (believe it or not) LP DDR2. It offers similar functionality, it works slightly different, and like comparing ddr to ddr2, it uses less power than its predecessor. The guy talking about latency is correct, but the latency is higher so that commands and access dont get muddled from the faster speed. Its not a bad thing.

    No, the higher latency isn't a bad thing to accomodate the higher rates, but the speculations that DDR2 is twice as fast as DDR is misguided .... the only true actual benefit I can see is basically less voltage required

    Oooook. I thought the architecture of the ram is different. I know ddr2 isnt double ram or twice as fast, but i didnt know about the LP ddr...

    Alright, well the ram on the bionic isnt seeming as great as it sounded before lol.

    Its too bad someone cant just come out with that superphone that just stays up to par with what we want.

    Yeah, for the Bionics dualcore processor, they should've put in 1 Gig of DDR2 RAM..... to avoid the bottleneck that would likely happen on the Bionic as stands now

    What they should have done was put the 512mb in and said it was a gig! That phone will be super fast and no one would ever think twice about it! From what I've read, nothing out right now (OS, apps etc) can push a phone's ram to use the whole 512mb for any length of time anyway.
