    Crazy! I would love to know what some of the dates were for other phones. I would almost bet (if I were a betting person) that it was even a shorter span for them :-)

    This was posted in the news section yesterday:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...31-2011-a.html

    But really, the fact they already have end-of-life dates doesn't mean anything. People have to work, which means they will always be designing something new. And there are managers and whatnot who plan things very far in advance. Other than providing support after purchase, every electronics maker puts every product they make in the past the minute it's released to the market.

    That article says there should be updates beyond the 8-month EOL date. And aren't you only eligible for an upgrade every two years? Unless I'm wrong, it wouldn't make sense for Verizon to try to make people want to upgrade before their upgrade date.

    Oh, and of course there will be updated ROMs released here well beyond those EOLs...

    I think the EOL for the D2 and x, would coincide with Verizon's roll out of LTE which is supposed to come out next year.

    With LTE I think the phones would need all new hardware radios to connect to LTE.

    just a thought.

    REALLY? No offense, but that's sad. I left iPhone last year and feel that Android is FAR FAR FAR superior. Just sayin'.

    Just give me 2.2 or even the next one on the X and I'll be happy for 18months until I get a new phone again!
