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.

A consumer also wants to buy something that has some value on ebay when they upgrade. A phone that can't have its software upgraded when it's a couple years old is worth a lot less than a phone that can. Which makes it a bad deal.

I have never failed to sell my old iPhone for at least the $200 I paid for it when I upgraded to the new one. That's an important consideration.
