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.

Its more complicated then that. The consumers probably don't understand what this means for them. I don't think if you told someone this was put in place for planned obsolescence they(the consumer) would be happy, but that is what its for. They don't want to support this thing for more than a year so people will go out and buy the Droid Y(as in why would you buy this?) next year.
