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.

"Custom ROMs allow apps to be stored on the sd disk along with an archive of pirated games. So yes allowing custom ROMs makes piracy easier. "

that would be more flexible it still easy to pirate the apps and the internal storage are massive. so saying that the modified roms simplify just aint true.

the real purpose is to get folks to buy new phones more often that is the way Motorola makes money, well unless people cant se through their schemes and don't buy phones that wont get updates.
