    I havent even looked at the Razr Maxx as I returned my Razr for the Galaxy Nexus a week after I got it. But now that you brought it to my attention all I can say is wow....

    Not in the least. Nobody in the RAZR forums is upset or even giving it a second thought. Reason being is that the RAZR performs excellent otb with good battery. Whats odd is that others (who don't own it) are upset about it.

    I do have to say there would be an uproar if battery life was really poor or if the MAXX had a different processor, more RAM, etc etc. But right now I think most if not all of us are pretty darn happy and not feeling 'wronged" by Moto. The Droid RAZR is that good of a product.

    Anyway go check out the RAZR forums nobody is upset except other people :)

    What we need is a mobile OS with...
    -quality controlled ecosystem (with a set of standards)
    -good hardware
    -good software
    -decent screen sized phones

    I wish palm would have turned into something. What choice do we really have these days? iOS or Android, are those the only two competitors. We need something new.

    Actually, that would be a decent alternative. You get the hardware diversity android has, but with strict guidelines.

    I believe when WP7 first came out it was required to have 1ghz cpus with 512 MB of RAM.

    If I ever wanted to leave android WP7 would be my next choice. Assuming Bada is not here in the US.

    Yeah, I'd choose WP7 over iOS.

    WP7 doesn't seem to be on the same caliber as iOS and Android yet. I would much rather have an OS based on linux rather than windows too. But WP7 is enticing and I am keeping my eye on it. It's far from "there" yet. I say this though without using a windows phone much at all.

    In the same boat. Not buying what I think would be the best phone for me (Droid 4) and will settle for a Nexus if Moto / Verizon don't unlock bootloaders and update to ICS soon.

    Hopefully Moto is taking some time off to develop the next Nexus phone, with an unencrypted bootloader of course!

    They should have made the laptop dock compatible with all phones that can use the technology. It doesn't make sence to make the Bionic use the laptop doc, then make the Razr in such a way that the ports are in another place, so you can't use that laptop dock, then make the Droid 3, slightly different, so you can't use the same dock, etc.

    Standardize Motorola if you want your laptop dock to be a success. Maybe your laptop dock should work on other hardware, besides Motorola.

    The lapdock 100 and 500 works with the bionic, razr, photon and future moto devices. I do agree though that they should have made the Bionic and Atrix dock work with others.

    well apple sold their iphones with different storage capacity. whereas the ONLY difference between razr and razr maxxx is the battery, not even the price. i think that where people gets pissed off.
