    Unless you buy the phone full retail. But who the hell can afford that?

    It looks like a laptop in that it has a monitor and keyboard, but it uses the Bionic as the CPU. While it's nice to have a larger screen and the ability to connect to either 4G or WiFi, if you have a laptop you don't really need it. There's some information at Deal Alert: DROID Bionic Lapdock Now Going for $50 Brand New at Verizon – Droid Life

    i see alot of it going for $650+ and that's too much

    Really it's up to you. If you can go into a BB or Verizon store and hold them. Each person has certain expectations on what the ideal phone should be and they mey not be the same as yours. If all the phones were the same price, maybe the Bionic wouldn't be best choice, but given the current cost it's pretty good.

    Well in my world the only 2 affordable 4g phones are bionic and lucid. I've always been pulled towards the bionic for some reason. Hopefully it will still be around by next saturday

    The Bionic is a very solid phone. You will not be disappointed at all. Especially when ICS finally arrives ;).

    Official word from Motorola was "early quarter 3." To me, we're in early Q3. August would be mid Q3 and Sept would be late Q3. But that's just my opinion here.

    We have a couple weeks left to see if it actually happens or not.
