I ordered is as soon as it was available and it arrived the next day. There was a problem with activation (Verizon Wireless had a disconnect between my account and its registry) but that was resolved fairly quickly.
Google Android OS brought my data onto the new smart phone immediately and has kept that data in sync with the google servers as it had done previously with the original Droid. Why anyone would jerk around with the mess that Apple imposes on its sucker customers is beyond me.
I have not tried some of the enhancements yet, such as HD quality video, but the comparable functions to the original Droid work at least as well.
I like the fact that Motorola did not clutter it with a proprietary shell but left the native Android interface with which I was already familiar. That was a factor that contributed to my buying the Bionic.
Great screen. I like this device and will keep it.
