    Ok, Got an Original Droid and would like to upgrade sometime (sooner or later).

    I was disappointed in the Droid2, as it seemed to be only a facelift on the Droid
    Then the Droid3 came along and I had high hopes. It has most of what I want, but it's not 4G

    So, what's on the radar that has 4G, physical keyboard, at least 1.5Ghz (dual would be sweet), front and rear cameras, etc?

    Unfortunately you may have to make a compromise somewhere as there is nothing that meets all of those specs, at least on Verizon.
    The D3 meets everything but the 4G.
    The Bionic meets everything but the physical keyboard.
    The Samsung Stratosphere I believe will meet everything but the processor.
    I haven't heard about another phone with a physical keyboard coming to Verizon either.

    What about the HTC Vigor...looks like it'll be better than the Bionic (still no keyboard, but may have to live without it)

    Everything involving phones beyond the Bionic have been rumors or speculations, from what I read a couple weeks ago. I don't know too much about them, but it doesn't look like a physical keyboard 4g phone is coming out anytime soon.

    That being said, your choices of 4g phones is fairly limited to, 4 or 5 models I believe? So just check those out and hopefully the owners of those select phones can chime in.

    I went from og Droid to the bionic and haven't looked back. Once you get used top swype its faster than any keyboard out there.
