    Would be a nice phone if not locked down the way it probably will be. The problem is all the OEMs want to be apple. They see the $ signs and they want the phone to be their way and no way else, they want the control and opportunities a locked down phone affords them and as long as we buy them it will not change.

    No where has it been said by moto that half the ram only works with the dock SW and half with android that is just speculation here. IMO more likely there will be 1gb of shared ram and the dock OS will just sit in the background using whatever ram it does while in phone mode.

    I would prefer the size of the atrix over the size of the bionic, but otherwise, I wouldn't say it's the better phone. The atrix has more RAM, but the bionic uses more efficient RAM

    It's still a separate OS that will take up ram whether you are running it or not. And likely it is a partition and not shared.

    My money is on $30 for 5gigs, $60-$70 for unlimited. They might even sneak in a high-tier at say $45 for 10 gigs.

    More efficient RAM? They both use the same DDR2 RAM, just one is 1 GB, while the other is 512 MB.

    Bionic has DDR2 PC-quality RAM. The Atrix does not.

    That is a great point, I thought the atrix was also using DDR2 ram, but nope every source I read up on keeps saying just RAM versus DDR2 ram.

    I've seen some sources like phone arena that specifically states that the Droid Bionic uses DDR2, but I don't see that for the Atrix.
