    Yea....its basically physical keyboard vs. 4G, 4.3 vs 4.0 screen.

    It really depends on what you want more. Me, I barely used my keyboard on my Droid 1 so I will probably be doing all touch screen unless a phone with a physical keyboard is too hard to pass up. Like if I was on Sprint last year I probably woulda got the Epic over the EVO.

    Ya I agree too. I really think that the keyboard on the Droid bionic will be great and there really is not a reason to have a sliding keyboard.

    I also heard that the Droid 3 was going to be running on a 3G network?

    Is that true?

    Ya that is stupid.

    I'm using the Charge and the 4G is super fast but when it switches up to 3G it is really slow.

    Its not worth to get a 3G phone this time of the year.

    Will the Bionic have a unlocked bootloader on release?
    I am almost certain sometime it will, since the Atrix did.

    The big thing for me will be battery life.

    I have the extended battery in my Droid 2. If Neither of them have extended batteries, I won't be buying either of them.

    Does anyone know of any extended batteries for either of them?

    I haven't heard, but I am sure there will be.
    So far pretty much every "Droid" phone has had several.

    I hope is comes with the 19xx mAH battery though.
    Thats higher than some extended batteries for my X.

    Thanks for the quick reply! :)

    With that 4G it will need a huge battery.

    The D3 is only 3G, but its also a Global GSM phone which can be of benefit for business travelers. Plus we all have to remember 3G will be around for several more years at the minimum.

    Verizon wants to push 4G LTE all the way and eventually drop 3G from voice and data completely and lower their network costs (and charge us more money). Until then, a lot of markets are still 3G and Verizon will need a massive footprint to achieve 100% 4G LTE coverage.

    No problem.:)
    And thats true. It should have a 1800mAH+ battery if it is shipping LTE capable.
    The last thing we need is it to have battery life like the Thunderbolt.
    Even though there are ways to improve the life on any android phone.

    There was a leaked developer build that unlocked the bootloader as far as I know.
