This has to be one of the most demanded phones in recent date. I've heard lots of people saying they might ditch their devices for this.

What device do you have now? Will you leave it for the bionic? Will it be locked like previous devices?

If it's unlocked, I'll consider it. I've been betrayed by Moto too many times for me to be quick on the Bionic (and by "too many times," I mean one time
)

Right now i've got the Thunderbolt and with the current dev support I don't think I will be switching. Unless it is fully unlocked.

meh, its a great piece of hardware, but ill skip this one. Not really because of the bootloader, but because motorola still puts a skin on it. Im not buying a device til i can get a nexus device on verizon

If the it is going to be locked and has the pentile screen then no. The SGS2 will probably be my next phone.

It depends on a number of variables:

If the Bionic is not unlockable, then I'll pass and get the SGS2.

If the Bionic is unlockable but uses a Pentile matrix screen, I'll pass and get the SGS2.

If the Bionic is unlockable and doesn't use a Pentile matrix screen but the SGS2 is not LTE, then I'll get the Bionic.

If the Bionic is unlockable and doesn't use a Pentile matrix screen and the SGS2 is LTE, then I don't know what I'll do.

4.5" screen... meh... I want a phone not a big screen TV. IMO the 4.3" on my TB is already pushing it. I personally think 4" is the optimum screen size. Of course that's just my opinion, your mileage may vary.

Locked or not probably am getting one. I been happy with my DX so far, but an unlocked bootloader will make a world of a difference.

Wait and see game for me still. Bottom line is it is all about the bootloader being locked or not. If it is locked that can keep it and any future device they put out as far as I'm concerned. I've been a diehard Moto guy for 15+yrs but I'm now on a boycott until we see an unlocked device. Ticks me off to be honest tho as I'd prefer to give my money to an American company, plus I already miss there build quality. However the line must be drawn somewhere.

I will buy it if it unlocked so I can easily get CM running soon after release. Bottom line is I won't be leaving my DX until there is a new device out running CyanogenMod thats worthy of the upgrade.

This hits the nail on the head. With CM7 hopefully coming very soon to the DX I see no need to rush into an upgrade that contains a locked bootloader. The SGS2 looks nice but may not be LTE. Being that I live in a heavily saturated LTE area I can't see not getting LTE on my next phone.

If the GS2 comes with LTE Ill get it, if not I will probably end up with the Bionic.. I still prefer my DX over my Thunderbolt but not LTE is a biggy..
