    As much as I was hyped up about the Bionic I am sure I am going to let the release pass by while I watch on the sidelines - so if the Bionic isn't going to be your next mobile device then what is ?


    Personally - even though it's not a phone, I am keeping my eye on the Xoom (WiFi Only Version) -


    As far as mobile phones, looks like I will just have to wait and see -

    Thanks for starting this thread, tp76. I was heartbroken when I read CK's post about the PMU problems with the Bionic/Atrix. I've been waiting since August to upgrade to the dual-core Moto 4G (and suffering with a Storm 1 in the meantime) and now this. So, I see four options:

    1) Get one of the new phones coming out in the coming weeks (Thunderbolt or Revolution [why? why? LG/VZW was this phone so crippled?], not interested in the iPhone).

    2) Wait for the Bionic and return it if the problems are as bad as they say.

    3) Wait even longer for the summer crop of phones (X2, Incredible2, etc.)

    4) Just get an X now.

    1) Seems viable and these phones should be plenty fast, plus it has 4G which will also give me global capabilities, something I like. However, I live in a rural area and the weak antennas on HTC's don't thrill me. I think I read that LG's antennas are better. May or may not be true.

    2) Seems like a pretty safe bet, and if I really don't like it I can revert to 1).

    3) I've been waiting so long I can't hold out 'til summer. I'm getting a 1-yr contract anyway so summer '12 might fulfill my dual- (or with Tegra 3) *quad*-core dreams.

    4) I played with the X the day it came out but knew there was so much more around the corner. Now that I've seen what's around that corner I just can't look back, plus X isn't global, which is important to me.

    Anyway, that's my thinking right now. I look forward to seeing what others have to say.
