    Ordered my D3 today with overnight shipping, so not sure how much work will go into the D1 this weekend while i play with that and try to get a quick ROM to the community, but don't worry the D1 is still under developement.

    anyone else get/getting a D3??

    I'm holding out for the Bionic. I don't use my physical keyboard now and I want LTE for streaming. :)

    The D3 does look nice in the pics and it would probably be my next choice if it wasn't for the reason above. I like how solid Motorola builds these phones over some of the other manufacturers.

    Thinking hard about pushing that button. 4G will not likely make it to my woods before my next upgrade is available.
    What other reason do I have to wait?

    I'm waiting on the Bionic as well. I had originally thought that I would use the physical keyboard over an on-screen one but ever since I got swype I hardly ever touch the physical one, unless it is to enter something into the terminal or reboot into recovery.

    I really hope the Bionic is everything that we've been waiting for.

    I originally bought my D1 thinking I would use the keyboard, but when I started using swype I completely stopped using the keyboard. So now I'm waiting for the Bionic, since I have 4G coverage in my area it looks to be the one. I hope..

    I got a D3 even though I'm in a densely populated, fully capable 4G area.

    Have fun with the crap battery life you LTE users ;)

    I'd much rather wait for some maturation in the radios.

    Thinking about a D3 but the PenTile screen is a negative to me , will have a look see at a display model and go from there .

    You're probably going to have a hard time getting a rom out without root. Supposedly it's coming locked, and moto has patched all the exploits. Am I missing something obvious?

    Well I can say having owned all (3) 4G LTE Phones, ThunderBolt, Revolution and Droid Charge the ONLY one that had any decent battery life with an extended battery was the Droid Charge.

    That said, I sold mine last night, my D3 will arrive tomorrow boo yah and I look forward to it. I have used 4G LTE in markets around me but between work and home 4G LTE is a toss up and it won't hit until EOY.

    By then we will see what I call "the real" 4G LTE phones. The ones with 720p displays and ICS and 2nd Gen LTE chipsets. The ones that will actually have battery life without an extended battery on them.

    Motorola for me took way too long to get the Bionic out, I really don't want a 4.5" device and felt at this time I could be comfortable with 3G and a keyboard. I have unlimited data so I am not in any dire need or concerned about 4G later on. Besides Verizon has a lot of work ahead to get it fully rolled out and by late 2013/2014 as they push all phones to be 4G LTE and migrate off of 3G we will be sitting pretty compared to AT&T and their poor network.

    Do we have any clarity on how difficult this thing will be to get open?

    If "they" locked it I am pretty sure it can be unlocked. My bet is on woody and devs..:D
