Will the Bionic be pretty much the same as the Atrix?

    I don't know what's all the fuss about the Bionic when it sounds to me that it will practically be a new 6 month old Atrix for Verizon. It will pretty much have the same crap...

    I agree! Plus it wont even have a fingerprint scanner. Too much hype for nothing...

    Atrix only has a 4 inch screen and camera is 5 megapixels vs 8 for bionic, no HDMI out on Atrix either. Plus tegra 2 is supposedly a bigger battery hog than the OMAP processor. Also, Atrix isn't on verizon which is where I want to be. Have to wait for final specs on Bionic to tell for sure but it's definitely a superior phone.

    Fingerprint scanner> LTE

    That's all that's needed to be said.

    I have a fingerprint scanner on my laptop. I no longer use it as sometimes it was quirky in registering my fingers. I have a scar on one finger and it would never register that finger.

    I'd have to scan several times with my other fingers.

    Good in theory, not so good in application.

    Fingerprint scanners in these phones are really a gimmick, a fun and cool gimmick, but not really practical for mission critical applications.

    Since this phone is the "Bionic" it should do something new and futuristic like poke a hole in your finger and draw blood, then test your DNA to unlock the phone, that would be cool, LOL.

    Fingerprint scanners are just plain sick...
    LTE just drains battery.

    A fingerprints scanner is just a fancy lock screen. LTE does a lot more than "just" drain your battery, it makes your data 10X faster! Not even a contest.

    I prefer the 4 inch screen. Mega pixels don't matter that much. The atrix pictures suck and I bet the bionics will also. U can play anything through mini hdmi to your tv.

    If it's not a superior phone after taking this long...I don't think anyone should buy it.

    Don't knock the att network so much it's not THAT bad. At least those guys have had their phone for months now

    The new Atrix said to be the 2nd one doesn't even have a fingerprint scanner probably cause no one cares about them.

    I'm half sure Moto isn't going to release any more phones with fingerprint scanners in them. Expensive and no one uses them. When was the last time you heard someone say "oh I love my fingerprint scanner!"

    The Atrix does have an HDMI port.

    Put it this way. The bionic is a beefed up D3 with more ram larger screen and LTE. those are really the only differences in the D3 and Bionic.

    end of line...

    Have we been able to determine whether out not the whole 1gb of ram in the bionic can be used with our without the laptop dock? Or will it be like the atrix that really only has 512mb ram away from the laptop dock?
