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'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.


Hmm, I wonder how well they advertised the fact that that's what they were doing. Especially since the previous phone was wide open, and users naturally assumed that this phone was its successor.

Also, I don't think anyone here is arguing that they can't lock the phone to a ROM, just that it's a bit rude, and they shouldn't.
