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.

Imploring others to "not buy the damned thing" is perfectly good advice. However, the undertone of judgement in your post seems misplaced. Normally, I would assume that if you are on OSNews, you are an OS enthusiast and thereby part of the 0.0001% of users who are tinkerers. In your case, this obviously isn't true. However, you should probably be aware that OSNews is going to be in favor of openness as it applies to user control of devices. Thanks to the reporting of OSNews and other sites (along with thoughtful suggestions like yours), I definitely will not be purchasing a Droid X.
