    Cliffnotes: If you want a new phone right now, get the D3. Otherwise hold out for something later.

    A rooted D3 (someone will get into it eventually...) will run you for a couple years or atleast until those 8 or 50 processors are out.

    I don't have any of the issues with my D1 that you had. It rarely slows down and I usually only run at 900Mhz. If I run it at 1.1Ghz, forget about it, haha.

    D1s were never meant to run Gingerbread, yet both my D1s ran it flawlessly.

    D3s are made for everything, they are the latest and greatest. Apps haven't even caught up to it.

    I'm holding out for quad-core and sticking with my D1 for a while. The D3 and the Bionic are the only phones credible to replace the D1 right now. Everything else is about equal and lesser quality then the D1 right now.

    PS: The Droid 1 hasn't been out for 3+ years.

    I'm holding onto my D1 for awhile longer as well. My wife just got the Inc2 and it is very impressive compared to my phone. It's tempting (I don't really use the physical keyboard on my D1) but the only advantage it has over my D1 is speed. My D1 can do everything her Inc2 can, just slower.

    I think I'll hold out until there's more incentive to upgrade. I want a dual-core, 4G, no keyboard and an unlocked bootloader. Maybe one of the manufacturers will step up to the plate in the near future.

    Moto X... The Game?
    I have to disagree with the fact that gingerbread comment about how it's great... It's not every phone that has gotten the upgrade is complaining about it. On my D1 I would be losing text messages, 3G connection, and other glitchy errors. however, I couldn't handle my poor droid so I got a used droid x to hold me over until the bionic. But I'm hoping something newer will pop out around in March of 2012.
