    I think the 512Mb of RAM is "enough", so other than that, I think the specs for Bionic are pretty top notch compared to anything else currently out there are being announced.

    So, what else would you want to be better on the Bionic??

    I suppose some might want the laptop doc, like the Atrix.
    Some will insist that it should have 1Gb RAM
    I'm assuming it will have Honeycomb eventually.

    What else??

    Basically, if something "better" comes out between now and say mid-July, what would make it "better"??

    I had to register just so I could respond to this:

    1. 1gb of ram for improved multi-tasking
    2. Fully optimized dual core OS (aka Honeycomb is fully optimized, 2.3 isn't, and 2.2 DEFINITELY isn't) - They may improve the OS's ability to utilize two cores. But I want it fully optimized.
    3. Wireless charging
    4. Take the HDMI Screen Mirror one step further - mirror via DLNA wirelessly (right now the DLNA only sends your media to the TV, not a true mirror. It acts like the older droid's HDMI ability)
    5. Unlocked bootloader
    6. Unlimited data plan (hell, I don't care if it's $100)
    7. Laptop dock like Atrix
    8. Desktop dock like Atrix

    Yea...you give me the Bionic with all the above and it'll be the perfect phone right now for me.

    lol, I guess that's what I'm fishing for. If I were to hold out for the next better phone, what would that possibly have, worth waiting for.

    Good list, some I'd like too.... Honeycomb should eventually come to Bionic, I'd think, so that's just a matter of time for that one.

    I seriously do not think anyone on these forums understands the Android OS or the function of RAM in them at all. You could give these phones a freakin terabyte of RAM, IT WILL NOT IMPROVE A SINGLE THING. The phone got a damn DDR2 upgrade, WHICH MEANS FASTER RAM ACCESS.

    I'm really coveting Webtop. It's not a make or break thing, but I'd def get use out of it.

    An unlocked bootloader would be superb.

    Oh, and for it to actually come out in April!

    Honeycomb will never come to phones. It's a tablet OS and will be nothing else. That being said, Google is porting over some of those ideas implemented in Honeycomb to their latest version of the Android OS.

    Ummmm, I would think there'll be a "H" version of Android for the phone, if not Honeycomb, then what?? They wouldn't come up with an alternate desert starting with an "H" just so that Honeycomb doesn't go to the phone, would they??

    Tablets get Honeycomb
    Phones get Harry and David(Sorry, couldn't think of another H-desert...)

    It's actually supposed to be "I" for "Ice Cream."
