Gonna wait a week for users to test it out and then I'll decide.
This looks very intriguing: http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-20103417-1/costco-to-sell-droid-bionic-bundle-for-$279.99/
I wonder if there's a way to combine the Costco deal with the $100 trade-in rebate.
amazon has it for 250

Sure, but look at all the accessories Costco gives you (besides 90 days returns) for $279 with a 2 year contract:

-Standard dock
-Vehicle navigation dock
-Battery charger dock
-Extra battery.
-Leather case
-Car charger

Engadget review with pics of standard dock and vehicle nav dock: http://www.engadget.com/2011/09/08/droid-bionic-review/

"The Bionic is a great choice for right now, the best combination of wireless and device speed that we've yet seen on Verizon. For that reason alone it's a smart purchase -- particularly if you've been hanging on to that OG Droid for months and months waiting for a phone like this to come along. But you should know that this isn't a world-conquering device, the kind of thing that will leave you walking tall and proud for months and months to come. If you're okay with that, then buy with confidence."

Hmm...settle down with it or wait for the rumored Nexus Prime?

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

I am getting the Bionic now and IF the Nexus Prime actually does come out in a month, I can always return my bionic to Costco and upgrade to the Prime... right?

let's just wait forever (or until z, zebra cookies anyone?)
True, but if Nexus Prime comes out in October and Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich turns out to be all its cracked up to be I'll be pretty bummed.  And who knows which phones Costco will or won't carry?
Ain l'davar sof though...

Dan I'm surprised, with your extensive overseas travel isn't a global-ready phone a necessity for you? iPhone 5 and Nexus Prime are both rumored to be global-ready so that makes the decision for me.
