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.

The droid that was sold on the verizon network was wide open, the Milestone that was sold to Europeans and Canadians has similar functionality. It had a locked and encrypted boot loader that to this day cannot boot non moto signed roms.

You can still get root on them though.
