    Been sitting on an upgrade for too long now, and really want to just get a damn phone :icon_evil:

    Besides the obvious differences, Droid 3 with keyboard/no 4G, Bionic no keyboard/4G, are there any other glaring differences that I should be aware of before I just cave?

    Rumored release dates had me all excited for the past few months, I kept talking myself into waiting just a lil bit longer, but I REALLY wanted to get a new phone before I leave for school on 28 AUG at the latest (at least, that was my last commitment to myself lol). I get that we have a soft release date now of SEP, but that SEP release could potentially be the 30th argh!!

    So...I need help, feed me bad things about the Droid 3 to keep me on track, I need deterence! I know its not a bad phone, I just need ammo to help my selfish cause!dancedroid

    My only advice would be.....you've waited this long, its not too much longer now. But yeah, it does suck when you are in need of a new phone.

    Well, if where you go to school doesn't have 4g yet, then I would just go get the 3. If you have 4g coverage though I'd imagine you'd be kicking yourself pretty hard if you caved now and got the 3. My take anyway.

    I'd continue waiting, like me and all the rest of us... just a bit longer I keep telling myself...dancedroid

    You sound like you need a phone. Buy the Droid 3 now, and get your fix. If you decide later that you'd like a different phone, then sell the Droid 3 and put that money towards the new device.

    bionic vs vigor

    I've been waiting only about a month for the bionic to come out so im not that upset about the push backs and rumor dates. I would however b upset if I got the bionic and the vigor came out a month or so later. Will I regret getting the bionic if I get it when it comes out?

    Just looking for something new in 4g that is well made.

    I just met you but I hate you :icon_evil:

    J/K :)

    I would just stick with the Bionic or the GSII (if someone confirms LTE on it). I really don't think the Vigor is coming out this year judging by how slow Verizon phones come out. As I stated in another thread I'd be shocked if it came out before February.

    Not verizon to blame... usually vendors like htc moto etc. However i think your right about there still being some wait on the vigor.

    bionic vs vigor

    Im not a Moto hater at all. :) I had a D1 and currently a D2. I was happy w/ both but when they die... they die quick. I have to remove the battery to end a phone call sometimes cause it locks. So I guess ill just have to deal w/it for the time being. :motdroidhoriz:

    lol.....meanwhile threads are coming out like "Bionic....what's the point?"

    here's an example. I have to agree.....a bit too late to be great now. Should have released this 6 months ago....then it would have been great.

    Bionic....what's the point?

    Wow. What a disappointment. I was really hoping for some great secret feature in the specs after all the waiting and forum induced hype. Not sure what I was hoping for, but after the wait, I really wanted something more. The only salvation now seems to be an unlocked bootloader (very funny) or some free add ons like an HD desktop dock. Oh well. I guess it may still be some magic combination of hardware and software that makes it spectacular. Seems like most people have been pretty happy with the D3 except for a few build quality complaints. Hope the GSII is here soon.

    I honestly want to see the bionic next to the vigor before taking the plunge. But if the vigor wont b out until next year I'll have to get the bionic. Something new goes wrong w/my d2 every day so even waiting 2 weeks after launch is going to be pushing it to its limit. I saw a post that vigor was due oct 5th but who knows if it's accurate.
