    if you are gonna wait for the new model because its better, you will always be waiting because there will always be a better one on the horizon. thats what a one year contract is for.

    The whole notion of waiting for the next one...is like waiting for the perfect woman when you have a perfectly good one in front of you. Better things will always come out, fortunately with phones you can change it again a year or two if you feel like it'll be outdated.

    I had a D1, I HAVE a DX, just finished ordering my TB.

    The reason I ordered it? I played with an inspire 4G and there was no way I could keep playing around with Motorola motorblur, Sense is just beautiful in every SENSE. Smooth. Great. I don't care about dual core, don't care about triple core, won't be using all those cors anyway. Bionic will be the first dual core phone so it's untested technology.

    The snapdragon processor is well known for how well it works, they compared it to the iphone's ios and it beat it, this one is a SECOND generation snapdragon so it's improved.

    A car that has 250 horsepower won't always be faster than a car that has 200 horsepower. It's all about engineering, and this phone was engineered to near perfection IMO (except that damn battery life)

    Do you have 4G in your area?

    I don't, so any newer phone is not going to take advantage of it.

    If I tire of my D1, I may upgrade, but it isn't a burning urge for the aforementioned reasons. :)

    Also, comparing phones to women: we have officially over-geeked ourselves on this forum.

    :)

    What I say to the people who relentlessly tell me I should wait for the bionic is, the bionic may be faster with it's dual cores, that does not mean the TB won't be blazing fast (it will be). I'm a huge fan of Sense, and my friends Incredibles, so the TB is the natural choice for me.

    4g isn't in my area yet it's just this burning urge to ditch my crappy phone and burn my NE2 ...the more I talk about it the more I'm feeling I'll take the plunge today

    I'm "lucky" in that sense, my physical keyboard has been next to useless for about the last 6 months. Not sure what happened, but the glue underneath the keyboard must have melted somehow, now the keys are just a raised sheet of plastic that makes typing the equivalent of walking uphill waist deep in molasses. Can't wait for the bigger screen for my virtual keyboard dancedroid
