    I gave up waiting last month and bought a Charge, but my wife's 2 years is up in July. I'm thinking wifey's getting a Charge and I'm getting a Bionic ;-)

    My D1 is on it's last leg. Just gotta last one more month. I almost broke down and got a charge, but then I figured I would check this section of the forum. my GF just got the Charge, and i didn't really want to have the same phone she does.

    Since the actual release date for the Droid 3 in-store was the 14th (today) and you could preorder it a week or so before that...doesn't that mean we should be able to preorder the Bionic a week before it's August 4th release date? If so that means preorders should begin in like 2 weeks!

    The Droid 3 was released pretty quietly, so I wonder if they are going to make a big deal with the Bionic or if it's going to be a quiet release

    This Has Become A Joke

    OK. I am angry at this point and it is all directed at Motorola. While some of you may not agree I just can't hold my opinion inside any longer!

    I think I first heard rumors of the Motorola Targa back in June 2010 (379 Days Ago)

    I saw those hours of following and research go away when the Targa was changed / modified / renamed (whatever the case may be) to the Motorola Bionic "offically" in January 2011 (195 Days Ago)

    Since January we have all heard of system / network problems that caused a delay, several rounds of testing that caused another delay, modifications based on "feedback" that created yet another delay. At this point it is just crazy to me :icon_evil: !!!

    No question the phone sounds awesome. Specs looked great... images were ok and then got better with the style change (IMO)... and the "rumor" of a 1900+ battery... it's all great... but what the hell is going to make me really think this phone is going to come out on August 4th? And more importantly come out without a boat load of issues?

    Motorola has taken some serious heat with this phone and their inability to produce a result driven timeline. Motorola has always been known for horrible product cycles and difficulty in keeping promises (How is that 4G LTE Xoom working out - lol)

    So with all the issues they have had and all the funny looks they have gotten from industry leaders (like when they wanted to create their own silicon for their 4G LTE chips) why would I take another rumor to be anything other than just another let down?

    Think about it... Motorola hasn't had a homerun - knock it out of the park since the first Original Droid with Verizon (compaired to other huge hits like the Thunderbolt, Samsung SG II, Atrix, blah blah blah, so on and whatever).

    Doesn't it stand to reason that Motorola knows they messed up? Don't you think with August 4th being a short 21 days away we would have seen some serious buzz / ads / talk from real sources about this damn phone? We still don't know for 100% sure all the specs. The phone isn't even on Motorola's website!!! :icon_evil: Why would they take the heat they have gotten and not made an attempt to push market interest in this phone?

    If Mototorla does produce this phone August 4th it will be the FIRST dual core 4g LTE smartphone to hit Verizon EVER!!! Doesn't that sound like a homerun to you? Then why not produce noise about it other than ppl posting things like I'm doing. It just doesn't make sense to me.

    Do ppl really think the first ever 4G LTE DUAL CORE SMARTPHONE will be a silent release like the Doird 3? What am I missing... why am I waiting... I still have the original Droid and I want a NEW PHONE! Which is another point about this topic!!!

    Does anyone remember the original Droid? I do (mostly because I still have it) but it was also another type of "first" for Verizon. How long did we hear "Droid is Coming"... there was serious buzz / ads for that phone for like ever and a day. The Motorola Bionic... nothing but horrible 3rd party sites posting old rumor specs as new found information.

    Just the idea of waiting another 21 days for a possible issue filled phone is killing me. Knowing my luck the phone will turn out to be a candybar version of the Droidd 3 because of the 4G issues they experienced and then I will have waited a total of 400 Days for nothing more then a keyboard-less 300 dollar Droid 3.

    I wish I could say this rant made me feel better... but it hasn't... Sigh
