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.

Dude you need to take a deep breath, chill out, and start pondering the need to reconsider your priorities in life.


It is a freaking phone.

It is a freakin' phone. And I need to have phone, unfortunately. If this crap goes through and all manufacturers start making exploding phones, I could be left with no phone to buy in the future. So it's a big deal!!

I will never buy exploding phone!

Ya this is an outrage! Motorola has gone too far with their phone restrictions and crazy practices preventing uses frmo doing whatever the hell they want with their phone! I am going to go to a vendor that let's me do anything i want with it, I am getting an iPhone! That will show them!

If you want a dev platform go buy a beagle board. if you want a phone, get a phone.

the phone is not going to explode, quit exaggerating. It works just fine as a phone, and is a very capable smart phone.

If you want so badly to have a phone to mod, go buy an N900. Nevermind that the software selection sucks, that it's only available on T-Mobile in the US, and the screen positively sucks.

Buy a dozen of them, strap them to your body and run into the verizon store yelling STALLMAN AKBAR and then blow yourself up.
