    According to the press release this has 512mb of RAM (a paltry number, I believe) and their site it has 1GB of memory (which I still think is too small). Any ideas what to believe?

    I would hope that Motorola isn't going to hold back on us and only put 512mb in it.

    Well they said at their press conference that it is only 512MB of RAM. Very disappointing.

    With this, and the fact that we won't likely see this rooted right away, might be time to jump Motorola's ship and go with the HTC Thunderbolt :\

    I am going in the reverse direction. Looking at going from a Dinc to the Bionic. Although I am waiting to get the exact specification / release date on the LG model(s), The HTC and the Sammy.

    The moto website says 1Gb. This isn't a press release.

    I'm wondering if at&t's balls to the wall attitude has anything to do with a VZW iphone. They're gonna need to wow people to keep from hemorrhaging customers.

    That's what I've been seeing also. Like I said, I think all of the Verizon phones are going to be overall great, but with one issue (Thunderbolt - processor, Bionic - RAM, Samsung - Touchwiz:p).

    Ok, have any of the Samsung device been rooted and has anybody unlocked the boot loader? If so, than that might be the choice.

    Yeah it is. I haven't heard or seen the specs yet. I know it will be a dual core. That is about all. I really want something soon though and I am afraid that the Thunderbolt will be the first to the 4G party for Verizon.

    why would you think this wouldn't be rooted right away. Go back and look at how everyone was saying the Droid X would never be rooted and themed to the point of people doing just like your talking about doing and jumping ship...then bam guess what , rooted and themed/rommed

    I really like this phone and would love to get it when it comes out. I am no worried about getting rooted, don't think that will be a problem. I am concerned regarding a locked bootloader, wonder if it will be?

    I have read the efuse was with OMAP, but I am ignorant about this.

    Anyone know?

    From what I understand the bootloader is locked on ALL motorola devices. Not one Android phone has yet to receive a custom ROM install. That could be wrong but that is what I am hearing from other forum members. You can root the phone, just can't install a custom ROM.
