    Does anyone know if the Bionic is going to have a notification LED? I can't see them leaving it out as it seems like one of those very obvious big features of smartphones, but iPhone and Samsung seem to sell a shit ton without one. My google-fu failed me trying to figure this out. I wont call the notification LED a dealbreaker for me, but I have a hard time understanding how Google would let Nexus hardware not have it at the same time. IF the prime comes to VZW and IF it lacks the LED, that could be what it takes to push me to the Bionic...as long as the Bionic has the LED.

    Now if only my OG Droid can last till November or so...

    I see white - is it going to be multi-colored like my OG DROID?

    I can't stand anything less than 4 colors, at least....

    How old is that pic? I don't doubt it will have the notification LED but I notice it's missing the new sexy lockscreen. Plus it's a pic I've never seen before.

    It's the same phone, just running an out-of-date version of MAP. If you look at the rest of the pics, it's identical.

    Bionic has the latest lock screen. Not sure I ever remembered seeing this old style on the device.

    From talking with the Moto guys, it seems like there's a lot of improved things they're working on the back end to improve support of the phones, as well as some "secret" improvements they're putting into phones and not going to reveal in order to test the effectiveness of the improvement without a placebo effect.

    Reminds me - I need to contact Matt (or whomever is running the testers forums for the Bionic) and see about getting onto it as well. being on the DROID test forum and running test installs helped out a lot in seeing issues where I never really noticed any.
