    Thumbs up Droid 2 First Impressions!!!

    Motorola's new Droid 2 is the phone I would buy if I had to buy a Verizon phone right now. That's not to take anything away from the Droid Incredible or Droid X, but right out of the box I knew Droid 2 was my new fave. Why? Motorola fixed the original Droid's achilles heel by making the hard QWERTY board an asset instead of a failing.

    now we'll chalk up the bugs to a bad unit.

    A friend of mine just got his Droid 2 last week, and he loves it. I took a look at it over the weekend, and I was impressed.

    I am unable to upgrade out of my Droid (notice I said Droid, not Droid 1), but if I could right now I'd get the V2.

    it means they are trying to make it hard for people to root there devices and then use custom roms

    It's for the type who like to hack. It means that it is near impossible to load custom software onto the phone (in a nutshell).

    Birdman has succeeded in loading an alternate recovery image on the X. That means there's progress hacking the Motorola encryption chips. The D2 should soon follow once the X is cracked.

    It means no easy path to hack the phone for custom ROMs. It also means no custom recovery images till it's hacked. For some people, the best part of rooting their Droid is the ability to make super backups called Nandroids, Nandroid backups, or Clockwork backups.

    I think I will just keep my Droid1 forever. I'll be "that guy" who 5 years down the line is still running the Droid 1 with custom roms even though there is a new Android 10.0 out that washes your car for you. I just can't find something I dislike or have a problem with on the damn thing. It's the most solid piece of phone equipment I've owned.

    The hardware keyboard sucks. I love having it, but it sucks.

    Given the choice between going totally soft-keyboard and keeping this one I'll keep this one, but it still sucks.

    I prefer the d-pad to the arrow keys on the D2, though, however much improved the D2 keyboard is.
