    If the Samsung is released Apr. 7, that's only 3 weeks after the Thunderbolt (and I'd say the Charge is a rather high profile device -- it's also LTE and was one of the 4 devices announced at CES). Apr. 28 would be 3 weeks after that for a potential release of the Bionic (although the article rumors the 21st). So, thinking in terms of actual time between releases versus how many in a given month, it lays out consistently.

    FYI i bought the Thunderbolt and I am really considering returning it and waiting for the Bionic...The Thunderbolt is a great phone but the battery life SUCKS! They have us trying all these tricks and crap to save battery life...I have heard Motorola has better battery life and I sure hope so. Just my opinion if this helps any...

    Why do articles make the 512MB RAM sound so bad? IT'S DDR2 PEOPLE, different BETTER RAM !!!

    "article" is generous.

    The first comment on that "article" is also wrong.. Bionic has 16GB internal with no microSD card included, but it accepts a 32GB card correct?

    I'm not in a hurry to get a new phone. T bolt wasn't enough of a jump to ditch my DX. Bionic would be a consideration. April is fine with me.

    Mostly, from what I understand. The Bionic does have 16GB internal and a microSD card slot that can support up to 32GB card. What I haven't seen though is what size card comes included, if any. I would suspect that it does come with card, although it may be only a 2 or 4GB card (which I would be absolutely fine with).

    I have been waiting patiently since Jan for this phone. Didn't buy in to all the TBolt hype. April/May even June is fine with me. I just want the $150 price that Amazon posted (and quickly retracted) to be accurate. That would be awesome plus pick a 32gb sd card for around $70.

    You are right it does have 16GB of internal memory. If it follows the DX it will also come with a 16GB MicroSD card or they might do the 32GB to match HTC.. Nothing has been said yet.!!!

    I don't give this article much wait since she doesn't know the difference between RAM and ROM. The 512mb of RAM will be better than the 768mb in the TB because it will be dual channel RAM, unlike the TB's. I'm anxiously waiting like others... but I may wait a few days post launch to check it out, see how the radio is (TB is hit or miss right now software wise, in the vzw store, one was on 1x and the other was bouncing between LTE and nothing).

    I'm interested in the Bionic as well. As for the microSD card, I was looking at the Lexar Class 10 32GB card for about $85. It will have a nice home in my OG Droid before it fits the Bionic or whatever its successor will be. As for the price point, there was this band Aerosmith that came out with this song that was fairly popular. I forget the name, but it goes something like, "Sing with me, sing for the year, sing for the laughter, sing for the tears, sing with me if it's just for today, maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away...."

    Bionic not coming with the 32 card? TB comes with it - why not Bionic?

    I'm in no rush either. I've had my Dinc since Memorial Day weekend. I think my hands are tied for an upgrade, correct? What options do I have if the Bionic comes out end of April??

    Would Verizon allow me to upgrade? Or should I add a line and give a basic phone to my parents? Thoughts?

    my assumption is that Motorola is spending the difference on providing the Bionic with a better battery?

    what good is the additional memory if the phone dies on you :-)

    Log in to the verizon website and check your status.

    I believe it is under “device” that they give you rather straight forward information on when/what you are eligible for as far as updates.

    Website says I'm eligible for an upgrade on Jan 2012. But someone told me that Verizon will allow me to upgrade the primary line after only one year. Is this true?
