    I just called my local stores... they never said they have it "in store" but they all had to check if there was a floor model. and one of the reps said that "its not for sale yet." I'll take that as, they have it but cant sell it.....

    Seems like a solid p-review.

    Look forward to some more video reviews cropping up.

    The X2's screen is much better than the X1's screen, by a long shot.

    Somehow I don't think you "played with it at a local store."

    I definitely beg to differ. I would never own the X2 and one of the big reasons (other than the music skipping issues), is the terrible screen. Brightness does not equal a good screen.

    The Droid X's screen is the worst of all the Droids, not sure what your angle is here.

    What does skipping music have to do with a discussion about screen quality?

    I will say like someone said at another forum. At THEIR normal viewing distance...the DX2 screen wasnt a problem. Neither was the D3's.

    Everyone's different. Just cuz the screen sucks to them doesnt mean it will to you. Just take everyone's opinion as that: opinion. Someone at another forum that actually has the Bionic and is doing extended testing says the screen looks better than the DX2 and D3.

    Go figure, right? Its ALL opinion ppl.

    Preach, have you seen anything about the induction back/charger combo? Haven't seen much about it since all the news has started coming in, but it's something I've been looking forward to.

    I was just looking into this as well, but the reviews I read about induction charging say that it's inferior to a normal charging system because it's slower, so I'm kinda on the fence about it...sometimes I don't have 2 hours to charge my phone.

    Have any links? The last 2 articles I read about induction charging showed one induction test being superior to plug charging, while the other test was nearly equal in terms of charge speed.

    I'm mostly interested in the induction back for the Bionic, since it flattens the device. The humps on these last few Moto devices has really killed it for me design wise.

    I think you are mistaken. I own the X and have a friend with the X2. He likes the phone but it has music skipping issues and the screen is subpar. Unless you think brightness makes screen quality better, qHD sucks.

    And you're right, the music issue doesn't relate to the screen, I just threw that in there. I still wont own a device that has a screen worse than my X.

    The Powermat 3X I was looking at is 5volts, took a reviewer 2.5 hours to charge from 0-100%.

    MobileTechReview News, Reviews and Discussion: Wireless Charging Station Review for iPhone 4 and More: Powermat 3X Mat with Powercube
    The others I looked at are questionable if they will be compatible with the door provided, different technologies are being implemented.

    The Qi Pad from Energizer is cool, but very expensive...so I'm just not sold yet.
