    I meant to go check out the D3 in person today, but forgot to run by Verizon. Seems like a lot of people are suggesting it's performance should be similar to the Bionics.

    I disagree; the Droid came completely unlocked, and it was the first truly formidable mainstream Android phone... not many other comparable options when it first came out. Those three factors made it the "go to" phone for custom development.

    The Bionic will be popular but completely dwarfed by the SII, globally speaking. Cyanogen is already releasing nightly builds for the SII, and it's not even available in the U.S. yet.

    Keep in mind, the Motorola Droid/Milestone sold 1.05 million units in the first 75 days of sales. The Galaxy SII sold 5 million units in 85 days.

    Man the GSII is so thin, that thing is nice. Is that a physical button on the bottom though, like the Iphone's?

    I disagree. Domestically the Bionic will probably be much more popular on Verizon than whatever the SGSII Verizon phone ends up being.

    And comparing what the Droid1 sold at the very beginning of the Android renaissance to what the SGSII sold when the Android world was tens of millions strong isn't exactly and apples-to-apples comparison.

    Bionic or SGSII. Don't know the full specs of either so who knows. Although the phone I get must be 4g which puts the bionic in the lead for me until we know about the SGSII.

    I wouldn't even trade my droid 1 for an iphone 5 right now. Iphone sucks.

    Well value wise yes it is better than the OG droid. I would trade to sell the iphone for more money and get a better android phone. If I was forced to stick with one or the other I would take my OG droid any day because of the fact that I absolutely hate Iphone OS.

    I wouldn't say iphone sucks. I wanted it to come to verizon for a long time, but when the OG Droid came, I couldn't care less about the iphone. Now I'm to entrenched into the google ecosystem to even consider it.

    For me it's GSII with LTE over Bionic. If not, I gotta wait to find the Bionic at a discounted price. $300 is too much.:icon_eek:

    LTE is a MUST for me . An LTE compatible GSII would entice me more with an unlocked bootloader.

    That was one of my biggest questions as well.

    But...:Galaxy Tab 10.1 for Verizon, hands-on with the new 4G speed king -- Engadget
    Sammy seemed to do alright with this device. I wonder if this could be telling enough to pre-judge the SGSII's 4G efficacy.

    It is much easier to fit an LTE modem in a tablet.

    Why exactly is it easier? It's nearly the same thickness as a normal smart phone.

    Because it's much wider/longer. The radios themselves aren't huge, but in a 4" device there is only so much space, so additional radios may have to be stacked. In a 10" tablet, they don't have to be stacked.
