I was in a forum, and someone said that they would be using their favorite Rom until they retire their Droid.
I've never thought of retiring my Droid. Since the Android OS is becoming so much more robust and faster each iteration, I had to ask the question: why would you ever need to retire your Droid 1?
As long as the battery holds up, and the processor doesn't melt because of my Overclocking obsession, what would a person need from another phone?
My Droid has a keyboard. It can run at 1 Ghz, no problem. I mean sure, the graphics processor could stand for more power. Ok, so maybe it doesn't have the most memory, but for a smartphone, it's pretty powerful. Oh and did I mention it has a keyboard?
I don't need to use my keyboard. I could choose to keep it hidden forever, for all I care. But the fact that it has one, puts it in a class by itself.
My Droid is highly customizable. I can root it, and make it call me daddy. I can install custom Rom's, and give it a new look and feel whenever I get tired with what I have. Whether it's Simply Stunning, Ultimate Droid, or MIUI, I am always changing my style, and never board with my Droid.
I see people here who type, OG Droid, and I immediately think of my Droid as an "Original Gangsta". I'm not sure if that's what it means, but it has a nice ring to it. Even now, almost 1.5 years after it's introduction....wait, it's just been 1.5 years. The Droid came out in October 2009, and it's March 2011, so 18 months = 1.5 years. It seems so long ago in the Cell Phone world. I mean Verizon has the Iphone finally, and no one thought it would happen. Motorola is talking about it's new lineup of Droid phones, wow, the "OG" Droid seems like it was so long ago.
I raise my Droid up high, as it's 3.7 inch TFT LCD Display glistens in the light, it steadily blinking telling me that I have a new message. Always willing to please, always there to take my calls, to give me free Visual Voicemail, or Turn by Turn Navigation.
My Droid is here to stay...unless some unforeseen circumstance occurs where my Droid breaks, and the only way to fix it is to give me a Droid III. Well, I guess worse things could happen.
