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.

as an android developer i hope most manufacturers follow motorola with this.
i'm sick of crappy incompatible roms which crash my applications and result in bad ratings.
those who want to root and load custom roms should get a symbian/meego device already and leave android alone.


Sweet cheeks, there is nothing stopping you from clearly stating that you will not support users who run custom ROM's on their phones. The vast majority of end users don't load custom ROM's on their phones, they stick with the status quo and receive updates from their carrier. Quite honestly you're making a mountain out of a mole hill.
