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.

Pressure from RIAA-like entities? Government? They want to maintain more control over how the phone is used regarding content and the like? I don't know.

I am still happy with my construction-site phone (nokia or samsung, I forget which). I can use it to call people, and I can drop it and step on it accidentally and it will still work. ;)
