    When you've been following some of these insiders for a long time you begin to believe what they tell you. Personally, I do. So even if the Bionic is released, I'll pass. As for locking into unlimited 4g, I'm not too concerned about that. The speeds I get on my Wifi are fine so the only time I'll use LTE is if I'm not at home. Plus, no one really knows if the tiers will be worse and for all we know they could make you switch to the tiers when you get a new phone. There's too many ifs for me to lock into outdated hardware just for unlimited data which I don't use much of anyway.

    But we are in Q2 and yet we have no idea when the bionic is coming out we haven't even seen aanything on it since CES. I mean cmon people there has to be reason why we know absolutely nothing about its release when we are already in the time frame they told us at CES.

    This may be a little off topic, but let me tell you guys, one really negative thing with the way Verizon has been dealing with it's Android phone releases is it's alienating a lot of people with all the pushed back release dates and what not. My good friend, who's had a Droid since it came out, just told me the other day he's going with the iphone 5 when it comes out. I asked him if he was serious and told him he was nuts, but he came back with the fact that he's tired of the all the B.S. of waitng for the next best thing to come out and waiting to see what phone will be better. He said he's over it, and will just get the iphone 5 and be done with it and get a new iphone every two years. I can understand his point totally, cause unlike me, he doesn't root and rom like I do, so he just wants something that works. He wanted the Thunderbolt but it kept getting pushed back, then finally got it, and the battery life was terrible for him, and he returned it to get his Droid back. Not the greatest Android experience, and it probably steered him even more towards apple. He also expressed he wanted the Bionic when it was announced. but look now how it's supposedly been scrapped. Frustrating really. I really can't blame him honestly.

    Me personally, I'd never buy an iphone, I loathe apple and hate everything they stand for. But it's sad seeing lots of people go over to apple, and it's happening now that Verizon has the iphone, and especially with the way the new android phones are being(or not being)released.

    Another thing that's ridiculous is the how people on here are constantly having fights over who's android phone is better. It's childish and stupid. The way I see it, if you're rocking any Android phone, and it's not an Apple product, then cool, we're all on the same team. Let's not divide anymore than Apple is hoping we will. Steve Jobs probably loves the fact Android is fragmenting, it only makes his product look better.

    As far as the question of what phone to get next, me personally, I'm going to check out the X2, and if it doesn't impess me, I'll wait for the Targa. It depends on how much I can get it for retail, cause I hate being stuck with a phone for two years.

    Great post, leonozug. I'm fatigued as well from the waiting. I've been on a Storm 1 for way too long and sitting on my upgrade since November. I really hate using the Storm but am weary of jumping on something I don't 100% want. Last night I looked at X and D2 prices on Ebay just to see if there is something that could tide me over until the Bionic/Targa/whatever Moto dual-core LTE or S2 is released. But then I think, man, do I want to spend $200-$300 on a phone I'll have for a few months? And what if something great is released in 4 weeks - then I'll really feel like a chump.

    OK, enough of my whining and back on topic: From what I can tell everything except the fact that the Bionic is still on Moto's website strongly suggests that the Bionic is trouble or gone. Too many things seem wrong about this, although I hope I'm wrong an we see a release of a great device soon.

    I love how you all speculate just cause the Bionic isn't out yet that its having problems. If I'm not mistaken I believe "sometime in the 2nd quarter" was what Motorola announced at CES. Even the Motorola spokeswoman showing off the phone at CES said a LATE 2nd quarter release was expected. And also if I'm not mistaken I believe 2nd quarter runs until what? June 30th??? People getting impaitient and putting up rumors is the problem. Who's to say Motorola isn't trying to get the webtop app somewhat finished before the release? I love how everyone speculates something is wrong when it CAN still get released in the timeframe it said it would, doesn't make sense to me.
