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.

In this case, it clearly can be designed around the interests of everyone.


No it can't because most developers would rather see the ROM locked.

I highly doubt this.

I know I don't - and though I don't develop for Android specifically, I wouldn't rather see it there, either.
