PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless On July 15th the latest Android super-phone was released by Motorola and Verizon Wireless. All hail the Droid X. The release was not without controversy though. The Droid X, while greatly raising the bar for Android phones in general, does so at the expense of the very power users and community that made the original Droid the gotta-have phone it became. Alienating this group may have far reaching consequences for Motorola.

people have to understand the Motorola didn't make this thing for people to tinker with. They made it to be a polished super phone for normal people, not devs who want to play with the hardware and load custom images on it. I do a lot of embedded work and while it would be cool to use the droid x as a platform to mess around with, it's not what it was marketed towards and thats not something that will impact it's sales more than 0.01% if that.

all in all its a great phone for what it is; a consumer smart phone with a nice big screen.
