I have watched a bunch o' videos on the DB and I just caught something that I completely missed before. It does not have a physical camera button. On screen only I guess. Not a deal breaker but a PITA just the same.

Between the D1 and D2, I've found that the physical button is unreliable. It frequently doesn't work even when the on screen button does work, so I could care less about having one.

See i love having the physical camera button.. i have never had a problem with it.. and i think it will be a pain in the ass to have to use the onscreen camera button because even though it has a 2 stage feel to it by simply just holding it its so much harder to release the focus without taking the pic then it is with the physical camera button and with the Physical camera button it gives you the true camera feel . I wish they would have included one that was one of the things i absolutely loved about the D1 and DX... but i guess ill have to adjust and get used to an onscreen button

After the gold paint came off of my Droid's physical camera button I was over it - this makes no difference to me

I only use the camera button when I'm in recovery. I never use it for the camera, so it doesn't matter to me.

That will not be the deal breaker for me.... there will have to be horrific reviews to deter me right now...HTC was my front runner with the evo aka thunderbolt but they dropped the ball but not even going dual core at 800mhz each. Heck if they would have done that I would have chose it over the bionic....but they did not so now I am moving on to yet another motorola device. My next device will be this or the next droid (droid 3) if they release it because I love having a physical keyboard.

I like having a physical keyboard too, but I will sacrifice for this device - unless they release some Droid 3 specs that are through the roof :)

See i would rather have a Physical Camera button then a physical keyboard... i guess becuase i have gotten so used to having the camera button and really enjoyed the experience i have had with it since it makes it easier for taking angled pics and stuff like that but it wont be a deal breaker i just have to get used to the onscreen button

To me nothing is more comforting than having a hardware keyboard for those times where you don't really have the time to look while typing, and especially when entering passwords, and if you password has numbers in it, you are looking at even longer to type that thing in. Give me a Droid 3 with a dual core processor and they can do whatever they want to the rest of it. It has just occurred to me that none of the 4 inch + devices have hardware keyboards :icon_eek: interesting.
