Hi there, I'm new to this forum-actually new to Droid as well. I am a Verizon customer, previously Alltel. I am currently rocking a very slow running,horrible picture taking, freezing machine called the Blackberry Curve. I have been eligible for an upgrade for quite a while now. I've been waiting on the Bionic and I think I've almost reached my limit....lol. I was really pumped up to get my new phone and learn all about Droid and then boom-no release of the Bionic. Then, multiple rumors of releases that never happened make my little heart go up and down. So fast-forward to the present and I'm relieved because this August 4th date is looking pretty reliable. But then I hear another rumor there may be this super bad boy phone, (Dinara), coming out just months after the Bionic. My little heart sinks. If I'm going to lock myself into another 2 year contract with VZW I'd like to be sure I scored a pretty top-notch phone. Is it always this up and down with Droids? Or maybe just Motorola? And what's up with all these names? Ice-Cream Sandwich, Gingerbread? They're making me hungry!
