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.

Please be realistic. An Android phone (being based on Linux) is screaming for hackers to pick it apart and customize to their heart's content. If your applications are crashing on modded ROMs then maybe you should brush up your programming skills instead of blaming the very community that brought forth the likes of Linux.

OMFG are you serious? People are hacking the underlying OS and you are telling the application developer to brush up on his skills to adapt?

So if I hack a RHEL image and break compatibility with a RHEL certified program it is the developer's fault for not having the ESP required to predict my changes to the system?
