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.

If you think eFuse is an such an outrage, don't buy the damned thing.

The problem for many is that it is too late. They naturally assumed that the Droid X was a successor to the the Droid (don't know why they would think that!). The eFuse was a nastly little surprise for these folks.

And, even though they remain a minority (which is always appropriate to ignore, correct?), they are a vocal minority and they drive the mindshare of the Android world. The Android world is not like the Apple world. Apple can kick their end-users directly in the teeth, and their users will always come back smiling (albeit minus a tooth or two). Android folks are a more independent lot.
