    I agree. Laptop dock does nothing for me, if I want to use a bigger pc ill use my laptop if I want unlimited power ill use the computer I built. A phone is a phone, internet on my phone is an awesome feature for when your out and about or at work and gonna kill time.
    I will probably wait at least a month or more after its release, till its rooted at least.
    I just got my X less than a month ago to at least hold me over.
    And I'm really havin a hard time seeing what all the hype is over the TB.
    The bionic seems like it is the first of the next gen of phones for VZW, all the TB seems to be is a revamped evo

    I am also not interested in the netbook dock but the fingerprint scanner might be nice to have (since I have a toddler and she has my old Droid). We will have to wait and see if the Bionic would get webtop. There was a post going around that Atrix was coming to Verizon this Christmas.

    I think that hardware wise this is one of the best options to go with on Verizon.
    Should upgrade the OS and a stronger battery would be nice.

    If I understand the Engaget review of the Atrix docks correctly they have basically built an entire small computer into the docks. While I certainly understand the value of hooking a smartphone up to a larger display and keyboard, that seems like a bizarre way to get there.

    I question the longevity of Webtop to begin with. Seems like future versions of Android should/will have that feature stock. I'm pretty sure Chrome OS is eventually coming to Android in some form, and it likely will be lighter and more efficient than Webtop.

    I was under the impression that the Bionic came stock with 16g, and no mSD card, but was compatible with up to 32g mSDs... Allowing for a potential 48g storage... Is this no longer the case, or was this 16g stock + free 16 mSD included that you refer to as part of some special promotion?

    I ask, because one of the primary things I did with my driod, and that is attracting me to the bionic is the ability to store/watch movies at my leisure, and also potentially play them via hdmi out.

    Thanks..

    Fixed the embedded video - should seem like more of a review now :)


    ...and yes, it supports up to 32GB MicroSD - it just ships with a 16

    16GB internal + 16GB microSD!

    What an improvement over the 200 some MB we got from the OG Droid!

    Has great specs but the look of it, to me, has a cheap feel to it. Looks a little wide as well
