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.

Because if they block non-authorised ROM installations, these custom ROM implementations become popular, as a developer your potential customer base shrinks because of it. I would have thought it was pretty obvious.

Why block custom rom implementations? Just say up front that this is not supported under custom roms...blocking is a terrible way of garnering any support.

And that, I would have thought, was a pretty obvious move.
