    It's been over a month now with many of us eagerly waiting the Droid Bionic. The device has been pushed back many times because of hardware issues, well it might finally be ready. The latest FCC fillings is of a device that apparently has EVDO and LTE 700MHz radios. Bluetooth, Wifi b/g/n, and inductive charging battery cover are also covered in this FCC fillings and considering the shape and design, the Droid Bionic is the first that comes to mind. This device went in with a cloaking device in the form of an agreement that keeps all the information about the device (pictures, manuals) privet until August 7th. Nonetheless, lets speculate till the fireworks go off.

    Funny you say that, my Droid 1 has been acting up for a month or so too. I think low RAM is the culprit. I have nearly all of my apps on my SD, but with the number of widgets I'm running and all the data for the apps there just isn't enough memory space anymore...time for an upgrade.

    Let me add to the Droid 1 owners who's beloved phone has been hanging by a thread for the last few months. I, too, am pretty sure it's due to low memory. My home screen regularly takes a good 20 to 30 seconds to refresh. My update will be available on July 7th and I'm not totally sold on either the Thunderbolt or the Charge. Come on Bionic, I need you!!!

    Yeah, it's gotten progressively worse with Froyo and then GB. They've obviously done something to the memory management that is too much for the limited memory in the D1, unless maybe you run a stripped down home theme.

    The overclocking does wonders. So does the lock home in memory (I set mine to 0, and redraws are pretty much gone but it sometimes takes a long time to return to the homescreen). Unfortunately, the tradeoff is I seem to have some services constantly being killed an restarting, which is a problem with my corp email.

    but I've only got 3 months until my upgrade so I'm going to hold out. I'm using my tablet a lot more, so pretty much all my phone is for is email, calls and google nav, the occasional surfing. I really should strip the thing down to get satisfactory performance given how my usage has changed.

    The alternative is to pay retail for the Bionic and then flip my upgrade on the latest, but I think that scenario may still end-up costing me $100 extra so I'll probably just wait.
