    Hey guys,

    I'm thinking of upgrading soon and I really want a phone that will be compatible with UltimateDroid. I'm thinking the Bionic. Can anyone offer some input?

    Thanks!

    Probably not the best choice since moto phones are so locked down. Also I saw that rafficax(one of the UD devs) preordered a thunderbolt and he said that UD will be coming to the thunderbolt

    Thunderbolt has an inferior battery mAH and awful battery life as well correct?

    Also doesn't have Tegra 2...

    Thunderbolt isn't released so no one knows if it'll have bad battery life.

    It doesn't have a Tegra 2, but if you're worried about battery, that's not the way to go anyway.

    Motorola seems to have changed their ways with locked down bootloaders(hopefully), starting with the xoom.

    Actually dual-core devices are supposed to be better on battery life than single-core ones

    That's something I'll have to see before I believe. To me, using more power = taking up more battery. And knowing Motorola, they wouldn't include an over 1900 mAh battery if the processor is supposed to help with that.

    It has 512 RAM, but it's DDR2 RAM. HTC went with more RAM, and Moto went with faster RAM.

    Well the more power means you will finish the task faster meaning more efficiency and more battery life right?

    Thunderbolt has a single core processor... WTF!?

    Thunderbolt: Single core yet 1 GB RAM
    Bionic: Dual core tegra 2 yet 512 megs of RAM...

    how about LG Revolution?

    Arent both DDR2...? Hows one faster?

    This is pulling me towards the bionic with the Tegra 2... If the bootloader was like the Xoom's... It'd b a no brainer!
