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.

Do you have your own nationwide cell towers and supporting infrastructure?

What does it have to do with the phone? I don't mean they have to support me nor the rom I'm using, but the phone is mine once I've bought it and can do whatever the h*** I want with it(in Spain it is this way). Imagine you buy a knife designed to cut apples: I understand they don't encourage me to use it cutting wood but I *can* do it if I want to (or at least try). With this phone I simply can't use it the way I want(even if it's a nonsense)

It is their phone, if you use it on their network. Read the EULA, else jailbreak it.

Well, I don't have it nor I will 'cause it doesn't work on networks in Spain. However, I still don't find logical that they can force you to use something you've bought and own the way they want. Again even if is throwing it against a wall to break it! It's *your* device, not theirs!
