    Well if it's Quad-core, don't expect it this year. If it's not, then it might have a chance for a November launch at the latest. Seems like Verizon has a lot of phones on their plate - a little too much in my opinion. Most are barely going to be different than the others. lol.

    How bout this for a guess...

    The quad core Motorola Targa may potentially be the next in the Nexus line and be a "Pure Google Experience". The first Nexus was HTC (unlocked from a carrier with a January release), the S Samsung (T-mobile with a mid December release), and potentially the next iteration would be for Motorola to build as it seems to be the thing with the Nexus line, rotating manufacturers. The next big thing may be releasing the Targa on with Verizon service as Google appears to be rotating carriers of the nexus as well. So Verizon users could get the freedom of "Pure Google Experience" from one of the most restrictive manufacturer Motorola on one of the most restrictive carriers Verizon.

    Disclaimer... I use Verizon so are they restrictive, I guess.
    Disclaimer... I'm full of BS and really don't know much of nothing, just making a guess. Please don't round up a posse if I'm way off here.

    Yeah I kinda thought maybe it would be the Nexus but they haven't been rotating carriers. Tmobile has always gotten it first so my guess is it's not going to be a Nexus.

    Well the nexus one was open, with the S carrier specific. So perhaps the carrier rotation was added later. My info was well before the merger of t-mobile was announced. So if Google had a heads up about the merger and pulled the Nexus to another carrier is plausible.

    The Nexus 1 was available for Tmobile first, then At&t and it never came to Sprint or Verizon Iirc. You had to buy them all from Google though.

    my droid has been running like a champ on CM7, compcache is turned all the way up, as is VM heap size. Running prime's deprimed kernel at a custom 1100mhz ULV setting. Also have link2sd setup and used auto memory manager to keep handcent (my preferred SMS app) always alive. I use cache cleaner ng to automatically clean my cache every night while I sleep. No need to reboot and keeps me happy enough to wait for a kal-el phone for my upgrade

    I'll bet the Targa is locked down, rumors are just that rumors and if it's a nexus then prolly won't come to verizon anyway as we never get those. Unless moto/google/VZW work out some deal like the D1 although I'm not holding my breath. Not to mention VZW doesn't need to deal anymore since they covered their bases with the iphone and with less competition, T-Mobile shallowed up, they and AT&T can lock down these phones even more. Too bad too cus I love moto HW and if Moto wasn't locked down I'd be buying phones from them every 6 months for me (and my daughter and girlfriend) or whenever their newest (step up in tech) device came out...

    I think it is highly possible for this to be true, but if it had the 3D tech. and a quad memory close to the LG Optimus 3D has but better i would grab this in a sec.

    I doubt it will be out this year. I'm thinking early next year, right when I'm eligible for an upgrade :D

    You're probably right. Originally the Atrix and Bionic were supposed to be out before the end of last year.
