Dang me anyway. Im'a buy a Droid x on Thursday, despite the "locked and encrypted bootloader" stuff.
Much as I enjoy playing with new roms and enjoy the "latest and greatest" new themes and ROMS, the meat and potatoes for me is really in the browser, the ereader, and making calls.
I hate to admit that. However, I realized today I've spent more time over FROYO itself than actually using FROYO.
(Disclaimer: I do realize, addict that I am, that if it gets unlocked, I'll probably go back to frittering hours on tinkering again- not a bad thing, but not necessarily the bestest use of my time. Lockdown will be kinda like "rehab time" for me )
No offense at all to those who love the ROM/DEV scene. Fun stuff.
Mostly, I'll finally get back to reading my books
(geez I love my Sci-Fi) and browsing the web.
I may even actually CALL somebody
On a historical note, I remember when I first saw "Pong" by Atari in a bar..(Musta been 1972-3...whoops, dating myself...) the big fascination, was "WOW! you can CONTROL something you used to only be able to WATCH! (a tv screen)" "What POWER!"
It's kinda like that with phones too; getting to control something that used to be a black box. Very familiar thrill. Oh well... life goes on.
Kudo's to all the Dev's, and I did support them with more than words (translate: donator)... and I hope they're there when I get my next attack of "gotta know what's goin' on and what I can do" addiction revival
Who am I kidding.... of course they will be
