    It is our policy to add sections for all available phones here at DroidForums.net - but we also realize that some members would be happier on a website dedicated entirely to one particular device. On some more popular devices we are able to accomodate this.
    We believe the Droid Bionic will be one of those very popular devices with a good community following.

    So with that, We'd like to announce that we do have a sister site dedicated entirely to the Motorola Droid Bionic up at BionicForums.net

    Be sure to visit and register if you are interested in the Motorola Droid Bionic. ​

    Here's a question for the Bionic Folks. Droid X can not talk and do data at the same-time due to its chip(?). Will the Bionic be capable of data/talk at the same-time on 3G and 4G???
    Inquiring minds want to know????

    Others please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it has more to do with the fact that Verizon runs on a CDMA network which stops two separate streams of data from coming in while AT&T's GSM is able to compute multiple streams of data. And if that's the case, then Verizon phones have a while before they are able to talk and receive data simultaneously.

    Not entirely. The Thunderbolt will do voice and data simultaneously over 3g because it has the hardware to do so. Not sure if any other proposed phone will do so but I'm pretty sure they won't.

    Expect to see more vzw phones with the ability to do both data and voice at the same time. If one can do it others will follow.

    It's in the News section... LG just completed the first simultaneous voice/data over Verizon's network (albeit over 4G).... it's coming.

    ROM vs No ROM

    Hopefully, I am posting this right. haha

    So, I have read that the Bionic will have 2gb of ROM and the Atrix does not have any. What's the main difference? What's the ROM on the Bionic good for? I tried researching it, but I couldn't find anything. :/

    In the US, I believe that the GSM standard is a combination of TDMA protocol for voice and 2G data, and CDMA protocol for 3G/'4G' data (HSPDA, not LTE).

    So most GSM phones actually have two separate radios - one for voice and one for data. That's why you have support for simultaneous voice and data on GSM. On Verizon, the new combination of CDMA voice + LTD data provides the same capability.

    If the Tbird is able to support voice + 3g data at the same time, I'm guessing it has two separate CDMA radios or maybe the LTE radio supports CDMA data.

    I believe your right about cdma not doing back and forth data,but wrong about verizon not having it. LTE allows simultaneous data transfer
    My droid charge & thunderbolt are proof of this.
