    dgstorm and I were having this discussion earlier. A lot of people are probably thinking this should have been the D3 but better late than never right?

    "Finally, we are seeing a 4G LTE phone with a slide-our keyboard. The only negative to the phone they reported is that because of the super-thin design, the battery will not be removable."

    He said that in the OP ;).

    What's with all these phones pushing out before the proceeding "new" phones are in customer hands? New phones obsolete before they hit the stores, strange, dontcha think?

    I remember it was a good time after the OGDroid was released that they announced the DX, not a few weeks

    Just as the Bionic should have been the DX2 and the Razr should have been the Bionic, something got messed up along the way this year but the X2 and D3 should have never existed as they stand now

    I don't get what your saying. All these phones have practically the same generation tech in a different form factor. I think obsolete is a bad word to use because it make no sense. Just because you have a variety of something doesn't mean they are obsolete. Id imagine a couple won't sell well but variety is a very good thing.

    Haha nice. But I think the RAZR and D4 are targeting different people. I think people who want a keyboard and a high powered LTE phone will go for the D4 while people who want the slimness that you see in non LTE phones, and a SAMOLED screen will go for the slim 4G Droid RAZR. Plus the industrial and solid feel might appeal to people who are outdoors a lot.

    The statement made about finally a 4G LTE phone with a slide out keyboard must have meant a Motorola phone because the Samsung stratosphere is a 4g phone with slide out keyboard. Just sayin.

    Hmm...*raises eyebrow in interest*
    You know I'm not a fan of the capacitive buttons anymore, and I was just starting to get used to the idea of not having physical keys anymore but depending on the visual quality, build quality, and features (not referring to bloatware) this may be a good third option to the RAZR and Nexus. Would certainly feel very familiar.

    Yeah this definitely should have been the Droid 3. I think they should let me upgrade for free lol jk. I wonder if it will have 1gb of ram. I would like it even more if it didn't have capacitive buttons and launches with ICS. I don't think I'm going to be getting moto for a while.

    I would have bought this instead of my Bionic had I waited. Alas, I have my Bionic for the next 18 months.
