    With the release just weeks away, who's planning on purchasing one on release day?

    As tempted as I am, something is telling me to wait. If it had lte I would jump right on it.

    Nope. It doesn't have as good specs as some other phones out right now.
    VZ needs to step it up. If the bionic isn't amazing, I may switch to TMO.
    But it is a great phone for those who need a physical keyboard. Just if it was LTE, which seems kinda ridiculous for a mid-2011 phone.

    They really need to get some better phones.

    Considering the only device to outperform the d3 was one running the same chipset (but lower resolution), i'd say the specs are pretty good.

    D3 will be my next phone.

    Why not wait for the bionic? If it ever comes out that is...

    Certainly in my top 4. Still eyeing the Xplay but waiting for a confirmed root on that. Also want to see the Bionic and some more specs on the Nexus (Prime?).

    I think this is my next phone. the bionic size is ridiculous like walking around with a xoom against your ear. don't care for a keyboard but the 4 inch screen size is perfect for me. Hope the development community will be just as good ads the dx

    Unless the D3 really disappoints me I'm getting it.
    The 3 LTE phones out now have issues. Remember the hype of the Tbolt?..then the delays...the bar was set so high for that phone it will never live up to it. I believe the Bionic's bar is even higher. I'm sure it will b a nice phone when it comes out but I doupt it will b the super-phone everyone thinks its gonna be.

    I'll be there when the phone is available.

    if it had LTE it would be a no brainer.
    id buy it on launch day.
    but with the lack of 4g, and with the pentile screen, im thinking of waiting

    ive had both the droid 2 and og.i dont understand why they are sabotaging themselves with this. im actually considering switching to sprint because i really really really would prefer a qwerty keyboard.
