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.

Lawsuits have nothing to do with them locking the boot loader, it has everything to do with money and corporate greed, also a smidgen of arrogance that users won't care. All this does is make apple look like the golden child for providing update for 2+ years. I think after hating on apple for the past 3+ years have been convinced that they care more for their customers than the Motorola's and the Samsung's. If Google was smart they would have enforced more strict guidelines for Android so this would not have happened, instead they are letting customers get screwed over by being forced to use 1.5 and 1.6 without updates while every iphone from 2007 at least has 3.0 which is very usable in comparison.
