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.

It is not intended to be a walled garden Motorola is pushing their luck and I hope they go bankrupt.


It's their phone and they can tie it to a rom if they want. Phones should not be designed around the needs of 1% of the users.


They are already losing money, this wont help.


Not likely when Droid X is selling out everywhere:

Shouldn't you be glad that a Linux based device is providing some serious competition for Apple? It's already hitting their stock:
