    let me guess...locked bootloader? : )

    I've surrendered to that whole thing. Would love an unlocked bootloader but I wont purchase a phone based solely on it being unlocked. I can't see myself purchasing a piece of hardware that I really don't care for just to run custom ROMS.

    Overclocking and such will be a thing of the past with these architectures. With all the available launchers and home replacements customization will still be available. Not the same as a custom ROM but I'll give up one thing to gain another. It's all about what your willing to sacrifice and we are all different. Like I said I wont let a locked bootloader stand in the way of pristine hardware, no way no how : )

    @Cereal. Thats exactly what I was saying. I have the original droid and I have been waiting for a device to come that is worth replacing my droid. This is worth the wait.

    The only downfall will be buying a device with 2.2 while my Droid Classic is running 2.3.1

    @ Cereal. im 99.5% in agreeance with ya. I'd dont care to over-clock/custom ROM nearly as much as being able to under-clocking and under-voltingl. ;-)

    However, as for the rest of your opinion, i second that notion.

    Notion: passed. ;-)

    The fact that I can OC my D1 makes it able to keep up with other devices today. It's nice to have a device that I can choose to scale up to keep it semi-current. The longer I have it, the higher the OC creeps.

    I love overclocking my devices to keep them current . My Droid is running at 1.2Ghz , that's faster than the Evo 4G . I also have a Pentium 4 on which I installed a custom cooler so I can overclock it to 4 Ghz , it's even smoking an i7 980X because that one only has 3.33 Ghz

    I have a droid x and the bionic looks to be running a different blur than the atrix. Much like the droid x blur. But since I flashed gummy jar without the blur I have noticed a huge difference. But I would have to see if the 512 mb DDR2 would keep it screaming. Very nice specs though. Just hope no full on blur.

    Off topic here a bit, but an i7 980 is far superior to a p4 that's oc'd to 4ghz. Faarrrrr better.

    in particular I really like wireless (free) tethering... that's a huge one for me of rooted phones. I care less about how it looks. With an LTE phone I would really want a good wireless tehter capability

    How is it your point? You said it was "smoking" the i7 980, the 980 at stock speeds is still faster and more powerful than your P4 at 4GHZ.
