    I would suggest the DROID Prime/ Nexus Prime if they decide on a name. There are good sourced rumors that it will be coming to Verizon and therefore, not $600. So, 1.5Ghz dual core, 4.5" screen and most likely LTE. Since big red got rid of 1 year contract, I could see this lasting anyone two years.
    DROID Paraphernalia:

    G-Tablet - Running the latest version of Flashback
    Moto DROID - ROM Test Device - Steel Droid 9
    Galaxy Nexus - Codename Android 1.1.1

    OP here...
    I took a little break and thought through all the choices. In this economy and with Christmas coming up, a $300+ phone is out of the question. I *might* be able to swing $250, but that's even a little steep right now. Here are my thoughts... and I am definitely asking for your opinions -- as quickly as possible. I accidentally broke my OG Droid this morning, so I have to get a phone right away.

    After making some comparisons, I think I've eliminated the HTC Incredible 2 and HTC Thunderbolt because of their lower rez screens (800x400). My ol' eyes need better, brighter screens. Also, both have Froyo OS (I assume they can be ROM'd to Gingerbread, tho). LMK if I'm wrong. I want make fair comparisons.

    The Moto Razr and HTC Rezound are out of my price range, so I had to nix both of them.

    That leaves the Motrola Bionic or the Moto Droid 3. Looks like the differences there are .3" more screen real estate on the Bionic, 4G vs 3G and $50. BTW, I even considered the dark side, an iPhone 4S 16Gb -- but the screen is only 3.5" (almost a full inch smaller than the Bionic).

    So, what say you? Bionic or Droid 3? Or, reconsider the Thunderbolt if the 800x400 display won't be a huge variance?

    I live in the Wilmington, NC (regional market) area. I have read 4G is available in that market, though I am actually ~60miles west of Wilmington. If I could be assured of 4G/LTE coverage and know the Bionic is as solidly built as the OG was, I'm willing to dish out the extra $50 to get the faster data speed and larger screen.

    It was good logic, too. Haha. THANKS! Oh well, I got the phone I secretly wanted anyway... and it will be my Christmas present. So, now I gotta get used to the BIG change from the OG Droid.

    I've been wanting the Bionic since it came out but I think i'll go for the RAZR as well. You can get almost all of the same accessories. Bad thing is I have alot for my D1. The Car Dock, the Desktop Dock, 2 car chargers, 1 home charger, pc cable, ect... I use the crap out of my Navigation so i'll have to get the car dock. Ugh this new phones going to cost me a fortune. Did you buy any accessories or plan to buy any for it. I like the laptop dock idea and the tv dock idea but they are kinda pricey. I mean i don't need them I have a laptop for that.

    Grats on the new phone!
