Well just ordered the X mini II Capsule speaker. Nice compact design should make it easy to tote around where ever. The reviews on sound and volume have been real good. Should be nice to have over the phones speaker with out carrying a bulky speaker system around.

And now for something truly awesome. Some fellas from Georgia Tech (Go Jackets!), in partnership with Qualcomm in their Augmented Reality Game Studio, have created a Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots game using Qualcomm's new Augmented Reality platform and recently-introduced SDK. You just point the app at a special arena map and the robots spring to life in your world. As a bonus, Qualcomm has included location and compass support, so moving around in space gives you a different perspective on your game.

theres ways to help w/ the battery.

download juiceplotter & system panel. juiceplotter will help you see when your phone is getting raped and system panel will show you where all your resources are being used. has helped me a lot.

try to use wifi whenever possible. browsing the net is gonna kill the battery if ure on it for a long period of time.

i can go a long time w/ the extended battery in there.

Att is releasing the Samsung Captivate (samsung galaxy S phone) on July 18.

I'll have to check this out and decide between this phone or ip4. Should be interesting on how Att is going to deal with this Android phone (whether or not they'll limit it in some way/shape/form).

I am seeing it really is. I love the "gesture" input. Simple swipe on the screen replaces several key inputs. Or pulls up new website. No typing in URLs. haha The tabs is so much nicer than the stacked windows the stock browser uses.

Also got my Mini speaker yesterday. That thing sounds pretty good for such a small speaker. No big base sound for rap or hip hop stuff. But what can you expect from a speaker so small.

sucks for verizon owners looking to dive into the droidX

Quote:
There has been some chatter lingering around in regards to the Droid X and its bootloader, and sadly it appears as though they have locked this one down. So, what does that mean for the average consumer, well nothing really. Those who will be affected by this information are those interested in the extra tweaks, along with the ability to create and flash custom ROM's. Root access should still be obtainable so you will be able to use all those fun applications that require it, which is a big plus to many. Hopefully the Droid X isn't as hard to crack as the Motorola Milestone -- for which they are still trying to figure out a good solution. Now all you Droid owners who were looking for an upgrade, still interested?
