Question about

I'm waiting to buy my next phone. What is the 1st Verizon android phone with dual cores and LTE enabled? It would be great if it were a world phone too.

I'm in the same boat, but unfortunately I'm also waiting for a phone with plain vanilla Android (so no Motoblur). Who knows if that'll happen, though.

But I agree with waiting for dual-core and LTE. I don't see the point in upgrading to a new phone unless it's sufficiently advanced technology.

Sadly, the Bionic keeps getting delayed. I don't think there's currently a release date for it. Also, given how Verizon has priced the Revolution, the Bionic will probably cost at least $300 on contract.

It looks like you'd have to go with the Droid Bionic.

Here is a chart comparing it and a few other Verizon Android LTE phones.

Trust me, the UI should matter to you. If Cyanogen is available for a particular phone model, definitely go for it (I meant to add that to my comment). But if you're stuck with the crap these manufacturers put on these phones, I can't recommend them. I have a tech support business and I've supported clients with multiple different Android phones, and all these interfaces are terrible in ways that you can't imagine, having used a plain Android phone as long as you have. I had the G1 then upgraded to the Nexus One, so I've been insulated from the manufacturer add-ons for years. Whenever I pick up a phone that isn't plain Android I find myself thinking the additions are okay at first, but then I slowly discover how terrible they are.

But man, upgrading from a G1 to a dual-core Android phone is going to be insane! The jump from my Cyanogen G1 essentially running 1.6 to the N1 running 2.1 was a big enough upgrade, and when I got the JIT on 2.2 it was like getting a new phone all over again.
