    Officially Moto, VZW and Google are saying it is not Motoblur, just a skin that looks like blur.

    even if the motoblur skin is causing the lag, you can always just not use it an opt for a home screen replacement app.

    Yea, I think I'd get LauncherPro on that thing ASAP.

    Re: Droid X not very smooth?

    I also read somewhere that the review units don't have the final software on them too. But when it finally launches we'll see...

    And looking at all the videos that's out it looks smooth to me too...

    I read the article. They did say it seemed slow. But, the only time they said it actually lagged, was when they unlocked the phone at the lock screen. My Droid does that but no big deal.

    I've watched a few videos too, but I have noticed what looked like lag when scrolling through the launcher or flipping through homescreens really fast. Those are really the only times I've seen it not run smooth, but that makes me worry about the other parts of the phone, like browsing the internet or touch responsiveness. BTW, I've updated the OP with links to more reviews mentioning the slowdowns.

    The choppiness is most likely the motoblur and the widgets. I think with a little customizing it can be cleared up. Also with Froyo, these quirks might disappear as well.

    to be fair, the software they are running on the phones is not the final version as others have pointed out. Just gotta wait and see.

    Droid X isnt smooth especially on the homescreen. Swiping from one page to another look jagged and it has nothing to do with Engadget's interest in Apple products. Homescreens have never been the strongpoint in Android because with every phone I've seen that has had the stock Android launcher is a little choppy. The Droid X looks to be quick when entering an app but Google/Motorola needs to find a way to make the menus flow better. User shouldn't have to look for a homescreen alternative just to have the responsiveness that should have been in the origial launcher.
