Eulogy for a Droid:
The Droid is going to remembered for a lot of great things and very few bad things. It will be one of the most loved phones of the mobile dev community until Motorola or HTC/Google wise up and unlock the bootloaders again.
The phone made Android matter, kept Motorola from imminent foreign buyout or bankruptcy, and gave Verizon a smartphone line that can almost sell itself now. It gave Apple competition and RIM and Microsoft a reason to get scared edited by moderator. I have a feeling that by 2012, smartphones will become the only market for phones, and it's because Apple and Google.
Rest in Peace dear friend. You have brought so much joy to so many. You will be missed on the store shelves.
