    Exactly. Not to mention, I doubt they use the same size chip for a tablet when they can space it out more due to the option of being able to do that.

    Also placement, orientation and proximity to other components and the interaction of the electromagnetic fields surrounding the components and their effect on operation of components and antennas.

    Very good points.

    The bottom line is that eventually there will be Qualcomm chipsets with the LTE radio built into the SoC, saving some space. But the first generation LTE radios are separate and are bigger, just like in any other silicon/chip technology... they will get smaller over time.

    Granted I've never installed or even held a 4G LTE radio in my hand, but I've built computers for over 15 years and I have a hard time believing they stack 4G LTE radios to save space. So honestly, these are all just guesses, as I've yet to see someone post a picture of a 4G LTE radio.

    Another thing, they most likely built 4G LTE radios for phones first, before the tablets. Since building a new one just for the tablet would cost millions in R&D, wouldn't it be more likely that they would use the 4G LTE radio they had already developed for phones in their tablets to save money?

    Here's something...at this moment, iPhone users *can't* even set a custom ringtone/alert sound, whereas we....can. Droid does in a world that doesn't :laugh:

    I was being a tad bit generic when talking about stacking. Basically, to fit things inside that small of a package, there are some things like DRAM stacked to make space for more radios, and the PCB is thicker. I'll let Anandtech get specific: AnandTech - LG Optimus 2X & NVIDIA Tegra 2 Review: The First Dual-Core Smartphone

    If we look at the Thunderbolt's thickness, it's because they packed in dual radios (for 3G data & voice) plus an LTE radio:

    So the PCB had to be longer, making the device have to be thicker in order to include the battery over the top of the PCB, instead of alongside it.

    This remains to be seen. The SII is the cream of the Android crop at the moment. A lot of Droid-ers like myself, whose contracts are expiring about now, will probably get the SII because of its impeccable reviews, and impatience. By the time the Bionic rolls around, it'll be snapping up new customers but not too many renewals.

    I have a feeling the ad campaign for the Bionic will be huge, and most mainstream consumers that don't follow these types of boards know the Motorola brand. I think that makes the Bionic a more mainstream phone than the Galaxy S II, but as you said it remains to be seen.

    Yea the Droid advertising for the Bionic will be the wild card. And seeing as how the DX2 and D3 havent been in any Droid commercials yet that I know of.....I can see a big Droid marketing campaign coming up after the Bionic launches.

    right now its just names and brands... no specs, prices or release dates on any of them that I know of

    are these all going to vze? and if the gs2 is the same as the global I don't see them fitting in a 4g in that slim phone

    This is a load of B.S. based on nothing. Call me crazy be we haven't seen anything about the Verizon GS2 passing any FCC testing. Less than 10 days away from launch and no screenshots or pictures or anything? The GS2 is not coming out for Verizon in August. Even if by some miracle they do rush one out it's not going to have an LTE radio in it. We'll just have to wait for the Bionic and be happy with whatever hardware is in it.
