droid x



Quote:
We've already gathered that Verizon, Moto, and HTC all seem to be pretty well committed to bumping most of their Droid models to Froyo (as well they should), but things are starting to get real -- really real. First off, we've been fed a shot of a tipster's Droid X that has apparently already been blessed with 2.2 over the air; the baseband version is a tick older than the one in a shot leaked over on My Droid Life, but it's anyone's guess how Motorola is staging this and what the final gold binary really contains. We've also seen a 2.2 ROM for the Droid Incredible leak recently (and the Droid before that), so uncorroborated rumors we're seeing that three of the four retail Droids will be getting 2.2 by the 15th of next month aren't necessarily crazy. Remember: think positive thoughts.

and yet nothing yet about the evo...tho i guess since hackers pretty much have a full working copy of froyo on the evo, htc should be getting close to releasing it as well.

id assume its within the month also, since the leaked version for the incredible from today is a fully functional version, including camera and everything that was an issue before. cant be far off im sure.

I just ordered a Droid X online to replace my three year old crackberry that's been acting up lately. I got tired of waiting for the iphone to come to Verizon, and there is no way I was going back to AT&T after past experience.

HTC Europe director Mark Moons caused quite a stir this morning when he tweeted that the company would begin rolling out Android Froyo updates to devices tomorrow, starting with the Desire, but we wouldn't get too excited yet -- HTC tells us that it's possible a rollout will begin tomorrow, but nothing's finalized yet pending some final testing. We've certainly got our fingers crossed -- and we're sure Desire owners the world over will be hitting that System Updates button nonstop for the next few days.

So, I have to decide. I can get a new phone for the birthday if my BB is officially broken. Do I lie and say it's F-ed and get an android?

Also, which phone is best to go with. I'm on Verizon. Droid X is too much/too big. I'd like it to be $100-$150 after rebates. Will the regular Droid be good?

If the size of the x really is a factor, an incredible will suit your needs just fine.

I haven't actually handled one yet, but just seeing it it seems to big. I'll be going to the Verizon store today to see what they can do.

Actually I can't wait till there is a good Android 2.2 based, 7"+ screen tablet available that also has phone capabilities. I will be rocking one of those up to my ear to make calls. HAHAHA

There are a good 5 or 6 in the pipeline right now. I bet they will be released right before the xmas shopping season.

id say go with an incredible. after seeing the droid x and the evo for that matter, they are just abit too big for my tastes. the samsung galaxy line are about my limit for a phone size i think. not that the droid x or evo are bad phones cause of the size, its just for me personally i dont want my phone any bigger than what i have right now, its perfect.

that all depends if you want a physical keyboard really, that will the main differences between the droid 2 and the incredible. incredible gets the nod still for me cause of Sense UI. stock android interface isnt nearly as nice overall. that and the incredible is a much nicer looking phone i think its all opinion regardless, best option is to look at the phones in person and go from there

Well I must admit the phone world is pushing towards all touch so I am probably going to have to make the migration to one eventually. Not to mention the EVO, best sprint phone, doesn't offer the option.

We will see, upgrade is coming this fall...
