    Thanks guys. I've had an update for 8 months...just haven't used it. I guess I can wait a few more months :)
    I haven't heard about the bionic!

    ^+This, at least wait a few weeks to see if we get any confirmed release dates. Be silly to use the upgrade now and then have all these new devices come out that will make the current devices seem as useless as the iPhoney 1, or 2, or 3... In all likelihood any current device offered now will not be supported for much longer. The new devices will have a newer OS (likely at least 2.3 if not 2.4) and will be supported longer so you'll have a better experience through the life of the device.

    I'm in the same boat. I'm still using my droid1 the I got the week it came out, and its really starting to show its age. I've rooted iit, but can't figure out how to get cyanogen etc to run. I'm hoping when I do, it'll freshen up my phone enough for me to hold out for something I really want. Ie, has to be on vzw, tegra2 (or something equivalent) and a physical keyboard.

    Iphone would be tempting if it weren't for itunes. Moto atrix looks very interesting, but its att for now. With the netbook dock I could forgo keyboard....but atrix with keyboard would be PERFECT.

    Edit
    Looking at it, I wouldn't hesitate to get a bionic if it had a keyboard, that thing is sick. Here's to hoping the droid t2 is my tegra2 device with a keyboard.

    I'd go with Bionic or Thunderbolt. I think these two upcoming phones would be the top two choices for android phones.

    this is just personal opinion, but i would be hesitant to go with the TBolt. i'm sure it's a fantastic phone, but imo they are kinda rushing it out so that they can claim to be the "first 4G phone". within just a few weeks after the TBolt drops, the dual core phones are going to start hitting, and i don't see the TBolt going head to head with those. also, to keep pace, i would imagine HTC is going to release a dual core phone this year. with vzw's new return and upgrade policies, i would be afraid to pull the trigger on the TBolt, only to have something better released soon thereafter. i know that no matter what, newer and better phones are always going to be released. but, right now, i think we are going to see a flurry of outstanding devices in the first 6-8 months of this year.

    Droid X. (Rooted) Had so many other phones & carriers it's ridiculous. I changed back to the X from the D2. Bigger screen & now sticking w/virtual. No complaints & glad I did. Next phone? Geesh, suppose it'll be a dual core, not sure by who yet I'll let the dogs fight it out first. Xoom also looks interesting but that's only my X with a bigger screen w/dual cores so it should move quickly but that race is going insane at the moment. Price is the starting point; (I don't worry about upgrades since that's disappearing too)= to be continued...

    I dont know if this is the right place to ask the following, but I have a couple questions comparing the Droid X and Droid Pro....

    I had the BB Tour (loved it, just wanted to use my upgrade and get something newer), just purchased the Droid X last Sunday, but am returning it as I don't like it at all. i thought i could handle the touch screen but it's horrible. I spend more time fixing misspelled words and takes forever to type a message so i can type it correctly. It's driving me insane. I like the rest of the set up though, so I am considering the Droid Pro because of the keyboard (and a couple smaller issues on the DX). Couple of questions:

    1. does anyone know if the droid pro and droid x the same as far as setup? Do they have the same amount of pages to use (3 windows on each side of the home window for widgets or whatever you'd like)
    2. Is there any difference in apps that are available? Does the Droid Pro have the same number apps available to it as the Droid X?
    3. Has anyone who has the Droid Pro, been able to sync Facebook to their phone calendar? I have been unable to get it so the Droid X automatically puts my face book friend's birthdays on my phone calendar. My BB did it automatically. It's a little feature I would hope the Droid Pro would do automatically.
    4. Is there an LED notification light on the Droid Pro? That is another feature that I am in love with (thanks to the BB Tour). And if it does have the LED, can you manipulate the colors or decide which notifications get an LED light? (For example, I like my phone to blink for texts, missed calls, but I don't want it to blink for Facebook notifications or emails).

    Any information is GREATLY appreciated as I am returning the Droid X this weekend and need to decide what I'm going to do next. Thanks!

    since the Droid X, Droid 2, and Droid incredible are scheduled to be discontinued in march i wouldn't choose any of those.

    I said "other" as in Thunderbolt. Moto had a good run, now it's time to move on.

    If you can wait til summer, get the Bionic. If you need something sooner, wait for the Thunderbolt.
