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.

One of the many reasons im a fan of andriod and the phones they are on is because it increses the lifespan of the phone this is read <decreases sales> These phones as users have posted are like mini pc's. Its not all about the hardware software is where all the functionality comes from. If i can upgrade the functionality of my phone by flashing a new rom that makes the phone more valuable to me. If motorola were honest they would sell a phone that you CAN customize and charge a bit more and one you CANT but make sure its known to be crippled. But instead they are being dishonest and underhanded and are alienating the very people who made the droid and android in general what it is today.
