    The people saying the Atrix does not have DDR2 RAM may wish to check out the following:

    So far every Moto device with a locked boot-loader has been rooted. I think you are safe.

    Thank you very much. I don't even know how the mix up started in the first place. People are so desperate to find a fault with the phone (in comparison to the Bionic), they started making things up? They are both great phones in their own way, but don't make stuff up. Next time I use the Atrix, I should check if Android recognizes the whole 1 GB instead of this half and half business I hear people talking about also.

    Yeah I would also like to know more about the half and half thing. But the Bionic is going to be a great phone.

    And when did the Droid X's bootloader get rooted?

    The Droid X has been rooted for a long time now. The bootloader is still locked though so no custom kernels.

    I wouldn't say it's tethering... it's not giving your PC internet connection from your phone it's basically putting your phone on your laptop (browser on laptop screen, windowed Android).

    Sharing the 1GB memory on the Atrix isn't really a rumor... You will never see two operating systems not share memory equally (dual booting is something completely different).

    Lastly, when I said people were overreacting, I meant about the memory differences. People see 1 GB on the Atrix and 512 MB on the Bionic and automatically think the Bionic sucks because it has half the memory. They don't even research to find out it runs two operating systems while the Bionic runs one.

    I'm definitely going to get this phone. I don't need a $50+ laptop dock for Android and Firefox.

    Wow this looks like a worth replacement to my Droid X. Then again I literally JUST rooted it and put the Apex rom on there so I should be good for another couple months.

    After using the giant screen on the X I don't think I could switch to a smaller screen.

    While I was at the Verizon store in the mall today... The store rep told me that the Atrix is coming to Verizon by late 3rdQ or 4thQ.. This was the 2nd time I heard this the 1st time was by Phone Scholar in one of his videos and now the Store rep... Now this is having me think should I wait for the Atrix coming to Verizon or get the Bionic... How much I am suffering with my Storm 1 I do not think I can last until the Atrix..:icon_eek:

    Yeah just go and get the bionic. The only true difference is that the atrix has twice the ram that the bionic has and a older? Version of motoblur.

    I got a funny feeling the Bionic is gonna be the Atrix, it will just be named the Bionic. If the Droid X2 n Droid 3 does come out soon, and the Bionic gets pushed back it would make sense.

    This will be my new phone since I haven't had a new one since Christmas 2009.
