    There's a gallery at the bottom, HD prolly won't come to market until 2012 after being announced at CES in January and having a forray of delays, but back to the bionic.

    Notice the 3.5 mm jack coming out the side... Really WTH!?! I am going to have to get new headphones with the elbow jack or buy some kind of adapter to get this thing in my pocket with headphones on, and even then this thing will prolly still be wider than my wallet.

    Which leads me to my next article...

    After seeing what the idiots at Motorola did with the headphone jack, this article makes perfect sense.

    Sad part is, I'll prolly still get the phone, but the more and more I see with this phone, the less and less I like it.

    I actually like the 4th picture, shows a nice shot of the Bionic. The squareness of the HD makes it not appealing. It's thinness is the only thing going for it. Yes that headphone jack is in a ridiculous spot.

    Notice the orientation of the camera. They rotated the Bionic and it is on the top.

    It looks like verizon's photon in my opinion, agreed on the picture quality, but it still looks like it was shot from and OG Droid.

    How could you put a headphone jack on the side like that? I do not plan on holding my phone in my hand everytime I listen to music. Maybe, just maybe, because it is the Bionic afterall, when you plug in your headphones the Bionic mutates and forms a perfect seal around the headphones plug to keep it from falling out of the jack while it's in your pocket..................maybe.

    The Bionic is turned, noticed the orientation of the camera. It is in the same spot it has been in all leaked photos.

    Looks like its running ICS. Could this be the Nexus Prime? I dont see any capacitive buttons...

    that would be very, very surprising. I don't think Moto could keep a Nexus device secret.

    It's probably just the same type of buttons as the DINC 2.
