    My verdict:

    • If he/she/it is talking about storage, that's great. We continue watching the feed.
    • If he/she/it is talking about RAM, then MDB228 is clearly fake. That would amount to 2.75GB of RAM, which is most anyone has put into a phone, even more than I put in my home servers. We continue watching the feed for teh lulz.

    What do you say, AF?

    I think someone making the tweets has too much time on his hands.

    'everything I capture or record'

    I believe it is referring to on board memory.

    Let's refer to RAM as memory (widely accepted term), and the other to onboard storage.

    So you say storage, but then he also says "memory," and that kind of negates the capture or record thing.

    Back to square one!

    Let us think of this phone from Motorola's perspective.
    A) What is the point of having 2.75GB (your guess, not mine) of RAM?
    B) Referring to point A, why increase the cost of parts for the phone for RAM that won't be required for several cycles of smartphones
    C) Increased part costs = less profit

    This tweet, as fake as it is, is referring to onboard storage. Plus, why would he take the time to clarify that the RAM is onboard? There isn't going to be a port where you can slap in a chip and get more RAM. Despite the significantly faster speeds of RAM compared to any consumer solid state storage device, you aren't going to be storing "everything I capture or record" in it. You don't need raw speed for that, and you certainly wouldn't have enough capacity.

    We're on two different topics.

    Here's where the 2.75 is from:
    [​IMG]

    In no way am I saying that he's referring to either RAM/memory or onboard storage (where the OS and apps go). I never said which I agreed with. I just stated both in my original post.

    I must not have made my point clear enough, as it was immediately inferred from my second post that I think it is RAM, therefore created the A, B and C.

    You do, however, make the valid argument that it can't be RAM. They would never put 2.75GB in today's phones.

    Again, to make it clear, I do not know if the tweet meant RAM or storage, or even SD cards. Nobody does, except for the original tweeter.

    Why do people think this guy is real? He says that that future will cost you, I don't think they would have someone say that and I definitely don't think someone from Motorola or Verizon would have someone say you won't like my bootloader.

    This is what my post was directed towards. I wasn't trying to make it seem like you thought it was RAM. I was trying to make the point that it couldn't be RAM simply because it doesn't make sense from a business perspective.
    The tweets are obviously fake, this guy seems to be hurting the Bionic's image more than he is helping. Motorola would never post anything negative about one of their products; it is a bad business practice.

    Trust me, I can't think this is real. Ignore my poll response, clicked the wrong one. :(

    I still hope it has the 4460, non-pentile display, a large battery, and is unlocked. Watch my dream come crashing down!


    The reason for my dissertation response was because I took it as mockery/argument. Hopefully it wasn't mockery!

    I was in no means attacking/mocking you.

    Hahaha, this is just like horoscopes, vague enough to mean multiple things and therefore most likely to be true.

    Everyone is getting played, or it is a brilliant viral marketing campaign.

    I think it's a mix of both! It's viral AND we're all getting played.

    Well, if the original Droid had 256mb and each Droid after that had 512mb, it's feasible it could mean it has greater than 768mb, therefore 1gig.

    I'm still thinking the phone has become sentient. <que Terminator theme>

    I think you are all making way too much out of something that will be in our hands in 2 weeks..

    So what if the twitter acc. is real or fake.. or if hes talking about RAM or onboard storage.. lol..

    I think we all need to just enjoy this weekend and the days following till then and really just stop making so much out of all of this because the more we continue to look into this, the longer itll seem to take for this phone to arrive..

    xD just sayin'

    We have been thinking that for months hahahahahahahahahahaha.

    It is the ultimate con of the Bionic, to constantly get your hopes up and then trash them...

    Sounds like my landlord.

    I think it's pretty obvious that he doesn't work for Motorola or Verizon... but do you really think those are the only people who have their hands on these devices right now? The thing is coming out in two weeks supposedly.. there are probably thousands of people out there who have already seen, touched and played with these phones.. they are just under NDA not to talk about it. This guy... is just dancing on the edge of the NDA and letting stuff info slip. Or he's just complete bullshit. But either way, Motorola and Verizon are not the only two companies who will touch one of these devices or have some info on it before it hits store shelves.
