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.

Not phones anymore

These are not phones anymore, they are computers. The phone makers are treating them like phones though, I am sorry to tell everyone but this phone will be abandoned in a year or 2, something only one company is not doing(apple), which is why many people are up in arms over this. If there were custom roms it wouldn't matter if it was abandoned, since the community would update it, just like what is happening with every capable android phone that isn't locked down.

PS: I hate apple, but the way that phone makers treat their customers I am very tempted to buy a new iphone...
