    With the Moto Bootloader Issue most likely not going to be resolved on the DX I am looking else were for phones. (I get to use my mom's contract upgrade,the last one since the change) She said she will take my DX since she doesn't do the customizations!!

    After playing with my GF's HTC Evo I realized the customizations that can be done. Since the DX was my first Android I never really realized the level of customization it restricted.

    Since there has been talks in the forums about people ditching Moto, What Phones are you looking at right now?

    I realize that there is Tegra 2 on the way, but I would rather get one before then, also I'm sure they are going to take advantage of that being the First one of its kind :)icon_eek:cha-ching:icon_eek:).
    Thing that bums me out about leaving Moto is the community here is great, (but hey maybe we will end up moving together, maybe i'll see you at Cyanogen).

    and obviously I have big red.
    (Sorry about all the spaces help organize my thoughts)


    TL;DR Leaving Bootlocked DX soon what phones look good?

    There are going to be several new phones being released with Verizon. There is going to be a couple new Moto droids including the Droid Bionic along with one other which is TBA. One other is going to be the HTC Thunderbolt. Both of the phones listed are going to be modify prodigies which will turn the phone world upside down

    I think "turn the phone world upside down" is very over dramatic. Seeing the leaked pics of the phones seems like they r just verizons versions of the evo. Nobody has really listed any features that are out of this world on these new phones other than them being 4g which most people wont even be able to take advantage of for another year or two when 4g becomes available in more cities

    I have information about both of these phones that will definitely be an industry changer. Larger memory capacity, higher screen resolution then 95% of the phones out there. Also first ever for vzw having the ability for data plus voice simultaneously and I know failing orange does the same thing. Also in the fact that vzw is going to have several million customers covered by the end of april means 4g will be utilized more than you think.

    By 2013, everywhere that is 3G now, will be 4G. "Millions by April" is possible.

    Oh my god, where do i start?

    SDXC Support?
    True ddr-2 667 ram, instead of archaic sdram at 133 mhz. They could give us 256 MB instead of 512 and it would still outperform the fastest current phone by leaps and bounds.
    Dual core 1 ghz, and i personally am expecting (maybe a bit too much too soon) a dual core TI based droid 3 by the end of the year.
    Android 2.3 support
    And did someone mentioned no more locked bootloaders?

    I will be happy with my droid 2 global until, lets say until 4G is widely available and these new dual core systems can be worked on a bit. Im almost sure there will be unforseen bumps in the road as it gets phased in.

    Who could take a guess as to how long it would take google and the android community to learn to work with a dual core set up?
