    What's the main purpose of your phone? Sounds to me like you aren't really streaming any data right? So would 4G make that big of a difference for you?

    I love my OG Droid and am sticking with an Android phone because it's conducive to my lifestyle. I have a lot of appts I have to keep. Everything is backed up to my Gmail & Google Calendar. I use the internet on rare occasions when I'm either bored or if I need to find something on the fly. I don't stream movies and my Pandora sounds just fine. So unless I'm missing something, 4G isn't going to overtly affect me so I can wait 'til I get my next phone.

    Plus from what I've read/heard, the 4G may be a contributing factor to the TB's horrible battery life. I'm no expert like a lot of the guys on here, just my 2 cents.

    Maybe I could just stick with 3G, but goddamn... I still think the price of some phones can be a little insane. I just think that for sometime in the future, for new 3G phones, they should always be cheaper than the 4G phones. Want the faster speed, you have to spend more. The only reason I could see the Droid 3 being 200 for another 2 years is because it's dual core, that's how I see it. But I'd use it for web browsing, some apps, and when it comes to the Droid 3, the physical keyboard is a great thing.

    3G phones on Verizon are cheaper than 4G phones. Verizon is charging $250 - $300 for LTE phones. They can be found for cheaper at other retailers, but so can the 3G phones. It seems that $199 is the price for high end 3G phones and $249 or $299 is the price for 4G phones. That's not to say that I agree with the way they're pricing the phones, because I don't, but they are charging less for 3G.

    I'd say the benchmarking (which included confirmation of some specs) and finding out that it will definitely be sporting Blur over the past two days are pretty good chunks of information for a phone that's not due out for a month/month and a half yet. I'm sure that after the X2 drops there will be a lot more forthcoming.

    The only deal breaker for me will be if this phone is unlockable. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed.

    I think he was referring to the bootloader.
