    You'll be damn right ill kick that Bionic to the curb. I wanted that bionic so bad for so long, but a month...and maybe a month and a half... I think I can hold off for that.

    There will always be something better coming out two months later, so eventually you have to pull the trigger on something.

    For me it'll be the Bionic. Having the Lapdock will remove my need of having a phone AND a tablet.

    True, but Verizon's first Nexus device, how can you ignore that? Your decision will haunt you.

    Nope, won't bother me at all. Not a rooter. And I like "Blur".

    I love almost everything the bionic has to offer, BUT a souped up nexus possibly 4.5 screen and ICS? it is kinda hard not to justify waiting just a little bit more. If the bionic has taught me anything...it has been to wait, and now im pretty damn good at it. The sour mark on this device is if it released to other carriers by the end of october, and vzw gets third helpings.

    Bionic will get ICS also, so maybe they'll work the bugs out of it by the time it comes.

    If ICS would be my main selling feature, I would be I would not look for the bionic given the slow response that Moto, as well as most older devices get for software upgrades. GB has just started to trickle out for a few of motos not so old devices the past month. How long do you think youll be waiting for ICS on the DB. To me thats not the case, but having no need for dedicated capacitive buttons in ics doesnt create a waste of height on a device that wont need them .

    This looks to be my next phone. Its between this and the Vigor. The Moto can take the Bionic and... well, you can insert your own derogatory word in there.

    If it is what they say it is, then yes it will be rootable right out of the box. That's what Nexus devices were meant for.

    For me I'm looking for the phone that will last me the longest. IMO the Prime will definitely outlast the Bionic, not because it will be a new phone but because the ratio of the lifespan.
