The DX2 will be 3G. That is what I am hearing.. I am going to wait on The Bionic. Also this is what someone told me about getting the Bionic which will be my next phone. What do you guys think?
This what was said:
I think the point is that yes, when Honeycomb comes out for phones, the Bionic will be able to finally flex it's muscles. But by the time that happens, the Bionic's replacement will be out or about to come out, that will be even better.
There is something to be said about waiting for the software to catch up before you invest in the hardware. Because either the next generation of phones will be out, so that when you are finally able to take advantage of your Bionic, it will already be last year's hardware, or, the price on it will have dropped considerably because it is a 7 month old phone or whatever.
If you get the Bionic at launch, you will be paying top dollar for a technology that you cannot actually use, and by the time you can, there will be something better available for the same price you paid for the Bionic.
So my thought is to either wait until Honeycomb comes out before seeing what the dual-core landscape looks like, or, if you absolutely have to get a phone now and renew a 2 year contract, then get the Bionic...
This is like when dual-core CPU's first came out for the PC. WinXP wasn't really optimized for them, and very few games could take advantage of them. So you actually got better benchmark score and frame rates in games by having a faster single core, than the dual-core. It was not until a year or two later, that Quake4 released a dual-core patch that let it actually get the performance boost, but by then, the dual-core chip you bought the year or so before, was already outdated...
