    Wow, I know this is not official yet, but if this is what is going to be the new Bionic, I'm glad that I decided to go with the Thunderbolt. I would have assumed that since they went back to the drawing board with this that it would have come back pretty loaded. If I was Motorola, I would have took note of the compitition (Charge, T-bolt, etc), and then made my Bionic way better. Is it me or have Motorola products gone downhill? I have enjoyed my D1 and X, but this Bionic is too old school for me. It looks like Motorola may have lost another happy customer. Just my $.02...:)

    I wish I could just get the new specs in my OG Droid.

    Thing is built like a tank and I love it.

    Personally I like the look of the new bionic. It looks like my og but without the QWERTY which I never use. I can't wait to get my hands on it

    I think the new Bionic looks way better than the original. That original one looked way too rounded and bloated. Like when they got away from the sharp look of the RAZR and switched to the weird plastic-y rounded phones that all flopped.

    At least now we have something that is consistent with the Droid line. Rubberized black metal with sharp lines. Ugly in an awesome way, like frickin Robocop. hahaha

    Well...Id say the Bionic will be far superior to the Charge and TB.
    With 1gig of RAM and a dual core processor.

    Also, it'll probably get updates faster, and hopefully won't be plasticy like the Charge, and have the issues the TB is having.

    Don't forget that the new picture is a much worse looking pic then the old one.
    Maybe when we get a better looking one, the new bionic will look nicer.

    My D1 appears to have been built like a tank as well. It's been in my pocket with woodworking tools for two years, been dropped about three times and dunked in the bath tub once... and the thing still rocks the party!

    Here, I must agree... I like the boxy, simply look of the new Bionic. Those cheesy shapes so many phones are just... well, cheesy. I'm still smashing around with a D-1, after two years, and I still love it's appearance compared to any other phone on the market. It's simplistic, and elegant, with a time-less and super cool look to it, the way things should be. I don't want a shapeless blob of a phone with some stupid point at it's bottom as a styling cue. The new Bionic design is quite appealing to me.

    I think that site has some of the stuff messed up, says Dimensions4.96 x 2.63 x 0.52 (125.9 x 66.9 x 13.3 mm) then it says Physical Size4.30 inches.... last time I checked 4.3 is smaller than 4.96. But I could be wrong. I still want that phone.

    I like the new look too. I like the sharper look vs. the rounded one.

    Here is a question... Will it be Voi4G or whatever voice over 4G is? And if it doesn't is it just a software upgrade to get it?

    It would be cool if they made it a completely different look... (in a good way)
    BTW, does anyone think that with the delays, they good be planning on advertising the Bionic alot?
