    the waiting game is a dangerous one to play though because that next big phone will ALWAYS be on the horizon. No matter what phone you buy it's a matter of weeks or couple of months at the most till the next best thing is out. If the Bionic seems like your cup of tea I say go for it.

    I am waiting. I don't really see why not. The bionic might be good (except for the pentile screen) but the Prime is going to be way better and its only a month or two away.

    No one who has unboxed the phone early has any problems with the screen at all, in fact I've heard nothing but good things. I'm getting this phone at a retardedly good price so I'm not going to bother. I also have another upgrade coming in May, in case I want to try out the Samsung. Like the other guy said though, as soon as the Nexus is out, we're going to hear about another super secret mobile phone project.

    yeah I am not saying you shouldn't wait, like Winner said, he wants the Prime so that's fine. My point was if you think you want the Bionic than go ahead and get it because if you keep waiting around the for the next best thing you will be waiting forever.

    There's no doubt this is going to be a good, maybe even a great device, but something tells me this will be Verizon's best phone for a very short amount of time. That's not necessarily a bad thing though. There are a lot of us who have waited a long time for a good LTE device and this will serve them well. If it looks good to you, then jump on it. You have 14 days to give it hell and see if it's the phone for you. And maybe within those 14 days Google will drop a Nexus bomb

    I personally am waiting on word about the Prime. Hopefully it comes to Verizon as a Nexus or I might honestly consider switching carriers. On the other hand, if it comes as a Droid but is "developer friendly" (i.e. unlocked), I would be perfectly okay with that too.

    Just give me an unlocked device with no capacitive buttons and ICS... Thanks Verizon!

    Buying the costco bundle, then hoping to sell the package back off with only taking a minimal hit on retail prime.

    if you wait for the Prime, by the time it's released the next great phone will have been announced and will be 2 months away.. so you wait for that one.. and another phone is announced for Q1 of next year so you wait... and then another phone is announced....

    Bionic is the best device available today on any carrier. If you're ready to upgrade from whatever your current device is then do it... or you'll be waiting waiting waiting forever.

    That's actually a pretty damn good idea.

    This is so true. Such a vicious cycle. I've been waiting since April to pull the trigger.
