    I figure I will get one and give my lady my X. She needs a new phone anyway.

    Xoom will be $800. I will wait for something cheaper and better. Im not jumping out of my seat for $800.

    BUT with the 2 y/contract?
    possibly be cheaper or no?
    i will most likely get the phone first, then when i get a job during the summer, save up for the xoom.
    dunno, could be many other better things out by then xD
    damn the constantly changing technology.

    Its possible. All i know is whats posed on engadget right now. They said at minimum 800 which is extremly lame. I cant afford $900 for a tablet. I am eyeballing oshibas tablet though. Its got hardware buttons, which i like. :)

    I wouldn't be surprised if its worth every bit of $800 though.

    Will be looking for it when it comes out. Couple more weekends of overtime to work lol

    DX- rooted, strapped, deodexed,OC'd, and themed how I like it...

    Thw bionic interests me but I doubt I will have 4G in my area any time soon. Will the phone still work well if I have 3G or even 1x? I will stick with my Driod 1 until sept.

    I want to get a Droid Bionic, but I live in a 3G area that will be the last to upgrade, so I dont want to have to pay for a 4G connection until I can actually use it....
    If I knew for sure that you have to get a 4G contract with this phone, I would just upgrade now to a Droid X...

    If the new Droid X2 is dual core AND 3G, that might be a better alternative for a lot of people in non-4G areas.

    It would be hilarious if they required the 4g plan in order to get the phone. How messed up would that be? Most people wont be covered yet.

    Don't forget the vizio tablet, that looks intriguing, too.

    Not to mention htc might come out with one.

    Ya, I feel ya. My og droid is showing its age. I'm trying to root it for cyanogen, but I can't seem to get it done. Superoneclick says I'm rooted, but no apps can run that need root.

    I really want a keyboard, but I may jump on the bionic because my ne2 will probably expire before droid3 hits.

    Does anyone know how this will work out? If a 4G phone is offered in an area where service isn't available, will you have to pay for 4G service? Enquiring minds want to know.
