    It is probably safe to assume we will see another Droid. But we are still off from seeing the device that along hearing rumors about it. My last few phones have been on screen keyboards and I must admit I miss having a slider. I heard back door rumors that the d5 could be moto/Google first unlocked device for vzw since the of Droid, but with any rumor just take it with a grain of salt. Still if you had moto/Google's ears what would you want in the droid 5 besides the obvious unlockable boot loader.

    I would think that San Jay would still have headed the D5. I mean Apple can still run off of Job's ideas for another couple of years, but I guess since it honestly can't be THAT hard for moto to unlock a bootloader.

    Anyways, I'm guessing the following.

    • A more defined 5 row QWERY keyboard
    • 4.3" 720p display
    • 2GB RAM
    • Dual/Quad SnapDragon S4 @ 1.5GHz. Though, maybe Moto will put an OMAP 5 in it.
    • 12MP rear Camera with 2MP FFC.
    • No removable battery
    • JellyBean
    Something tells me it's going to share specs with the upcoming DROID Razr HD, Fighter, or whatever it's called

    Like that. I believe you are right that it may be based on the maxx or maxx hd design. I too am hoping they go atleast 4.3 inch. But to add to that I would like at least the same super amoled display that is on the razr. I doubt it will come wit jelly bean because motorola would not have had enough time to test it with their software, but I would be cool with ics.

    4.7 would be awesome they would just have to find away to make the keyboard and device thinner so combined it will not be so bulky. If the combined bulk at most the thickness of the bionic I think people would be ok with that.

    I wouldn't put it past moto. In the past (excluding the D4) the OG DROID line always had the current version of Android. Like:

    D1: 2.0
    D2: 2.2
    D3: 2.3

    It's kind of weird, cause not even the X line launches with the current version, and there's only like a month between those two lines.

    Unfortunately, the D4 launched a month after ICS so it would be hard for moto to have ICS on it. But assuming JB is announced next week, and depending on when the D5 launches I think it's possible.

    Everything in this list, except I want it to have a removable battery.

    Thin, thin, thin!

    I went from the D1 -> D4 and there is almost no difference in thickness. I think the single most desirable physical change for the D5 would be to cut the thickness down by 15-20%.

    That would be great, as long as it doesn't affect build quality. It has to be sturdy, sturdy, sturdy. I'm satisfied with the thickness of my D3. I would like it to be a tad bit lighter, though.

    For the record, the ONLY way I would get another Motorola is if the bootloader is unlocked. I know it's obvious but I still gotta say it. :)

    Razr max with a slider and a unlocked bootloader. Oh, and a NFC chip.
