Well I've been thinking about waiting myself. Since my D1 is still working so well and it seems we're on our way to seeing some very interesting phones in October-December.
But I think what I've learned with the Bionic is that since we never know any solid information about a product until the month or two prior to it's release, playing the waiting game could be pointless.
I will say this, I'm glad I kept my OG for this long and didn't jump on any of Motorola's phones between the OG and the Bionic, as I don't think anythings been worthy of upgrading to. Now if the Bionic comes out in late September, then I may wait until October to see what's supposedly on the horizon. Plus this may result in the Bionic dropping to $199 by then as well, with some bugs worked out.
I personally don't like the look of the HD, the square corners don't appeal to me, but it's thinness is exactly what I wanted to see in my next phone.

And I'm not sure why you can't get line breaks or paragraphs. Did you make that post from your phone? The new forums have a whole bunch of new features that allow for more detailed editting of posts so I'm not sure what the problem could be for you.
Nice to see the Bionic comes with a 16GB sd card.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
Which TI OMAP processor is it? Depending on articles I know it is either the 4430 or 4440 but which one? I also know the gpu is the vr540 which will work with either.

I never even for a moment considered getting any phone between the OG Droid and the Bionic. None of them impressed me at all. I like that the Bionic is feature loaded and hope it's not too thick or heavy.
I'm fine with the specs. The only spec left that I'm still concerned about is the front facing camera. I really hope it's not VGA and it's at least one megapixel. It's not a deal breaker for me but it is annoying. I think VGA cameras should be outlawed; they make pictures look like garbage and not even worth taking. From now on the entire tech industry should all agree that it's 1 megapixel and up from here on out
"Waht is the difference between VGA camera and 1.3 megapixel camera?" I figured this seemed like a good place to look. Top rated answer:
picture quality ....clarity....
vga is vry basic........4 higher picture resolutions and clearer piks u upgrade 2 mega pixel cameras...and as d mega pixels increase d pik quality increases.
so 1.3 megapixel camera is better dan vga and 2 ,3 ,4 or 10 megapixel wd b better dan 1.3
I just died a little on the inside
VGA camera should be fine. It is only used for video calling. Higher resolution isn't really needed since the feed will only be displayed on another cell phone screen. 1.3mp might have made for a slightly sharper picture but anything over that would just be overkill.
