    When is VZW supposed to be coming out with its first Tegra 2 equipped phone, cause that CPU is making me drool. And its about the only thing at the moment, that would make me trade in my DX for something new, cause I love my DX, but if I could get something similar to the DX except with the Tegra2 onboard, I would be first in line for it. I don't even care if its 4G or 3G, just as long as its as good as my DX and has tegra2 lol from what I heard, the DX-2 might just be the phone I've been waiting for. But I haven't heard much about a release date and wether or not it will be VZW's first Tegra2 phone. The xoom is the only device they have with Tegra 2 in it I believe, which I plan on getting that sometime this summer after I catch up on bills and my gf says its ok for me to spend our money on it hahaha

    Ipad 2 > xoom

    Lol jk. Id probably get ddos'd if I were serious.

    I would honestly pick the xoom out of the two. But in general, I don't see a point in buying a tablet.

    Asus doesn't necessarily translate to quality. It'll be a good product but product quality should be a concern.

    I can't have my cake and eat it too?! Awe shucks. </sarcasm>

    I'm sure it probably will be...but what we're all REALLY waiting for is THAT device. Dual-core 4G beast phone on Verizon. Let the speculation continue!

    Any new phone that comes out will never be "good enough" even if its better then all the others we will always want it to be an itty bit faster or smaller/bigger etc no matter what we always will want something better haha its true for me also

    I've been looking into the ASUS tablet, but I really like the xoom. I love ASUS products tho. I have a ASUS laptop that's built around the AMD Phenom II Triple-Core 2.1Ghz CPU and it has an amzing dedicated GPU, among other things and I love it. Plus I've been building custom PC's since I was 15 (I'm 24 now, almost 25) and I use ASUS motherboards alot as well as some of the Graphics Cards they came out with. So in my Experience, ASUS does usually translate to quality, but your right, doesn't mean everything they come out with does. I'm gonna get the xoom over the ASUS tablet. The xoom has everything I want out of a tablet. And as far as the ipad 2 goes, I already have the newest 4th Gen iPod touch, so I don't need a bigger version of it. Xoom=awesomeness lol

    And what the other guy said is correct, the original Bionic is dead, it was ccalled the Etna, but moto is coming out with the Targa (spelling?) And VZW is most likely gonna call it the Droid Bionic (its up to the carriers to give the commercial names for the phones they carry), so we will still see it, and it will be better then the etna, and the etna was hella dope, so the new Targa, is gonna be amazing!

    Here's a link to the Motorola Targa specs -
    www.phonearena.com/phones/Motorola-Targa_id5306

    This will be the new "Droid Bionic" but I don't think its gonna come out before the Droid X2 does, so I'm thinkin the DX2 will be VZW's first Tergra 2 equipped phone...the thing I don't get tho is, if they killed the etna due to the fact that the tegra 2 chip wasn't working well with the 4G LTE radio band, apparently it caused a lot of over heating and such, then how are they getting the Targa to work wih he Tegra 2 and the 4G band. If they got it to work, then why couldn't the etna work. Makes no sense to me

    No the bionic will still be out within the nest few months. The targa is an end of the year phone. Being a google device, it will probably be using a new OS (think honeycomb, yes it'll be for phones also)

    From what I read, the targa is gonna be the new bionic. There's another thread on here talking about it as well
