    Couple hours old.

    I too am in an area I don't believe will be seeing 4G until at least 2012. I spoke with a couple of VZ reps and they seem to think that is a decent guess. Plus with all of the trouble they've been having with 4G I'm not going to be too thrilled to jump on it right when it first hits. That said, even if 4G gets here by the end of next yr, I'll still only have about six months to wait (and watch the bugs of 4G get ironed out) until I can get a 4G phone. Why did I just get the DX2? Coming from a D1 I get a bigger/higher resolution screen, MUCH better camera and video recorder, more memory (although they got skimpy with an 8mg card this time) and dual core. The lack of a front-facing camera for video chats doesn't bother me. I have Googles videochat on my laptop that works well and I never use it. Initial impressions are: all of my programs are running faster (games are much smoother), I have for the first time on 3g watched youtube videos in regular and HQ without any buffering (on the d1 it's usually 7-20 times with stoppages of up to 1 minute), the screen is very responsive and snappy (it also has an anti glare and scratch resistant coating that helps fingersmears become a lot less noticeable). I just downloaded AND installed Gun Bros in 10 SECONDS. I took several minutes on the D1. One other thing I'm also pleased with is that the stock dialer finally has a built in T9 search. What's not so good? The speakerphone is clear, but not very loud volume wise. The web browsing is only marginally faster (but does scroll very nicely). I have noticed a few jagged edges in some rendered lines. The jury is still out on the physical buttons because right now they require pretty heavy pressure to engage them. The lack of a physical camera button is not a deal breaker, but a little irritating. Overall, after only a few hours, I am enjoying the phone and am leaning towards keeping it. So it could be bye bye!

    PS-Picked it up at Best Buy for $199 after "borrowing" my daughter's upgrade (Hey, she's a texter and doesn't need a new phone )

    Maybe wait a few days to see if Amazon or Wirefly has some DX2's under 199.99?

    All I "know" is:

    1. Nobody knows what will happen with data plans or if 4G will be grandfathered (VZW concern is 4G bandwidth- per their CFO)
    2. Tegra 2 rocks. I have a gTablet and it smokes the 8655 in the TB
    3. Droid X is solid built device now improved with brand new innards.
    4. Easy to root for ridding bloat and using Titanium
    5. Moto already promised Gingerbread
    6. The super sweet VZW devices are probably coming in the fall (hence the "know", since I am using an "educated" guess)
    7. Reports are the Droid X2 has the same or better radio reception of the DX1
    8. Netflix works
    9. New stuff will keep coming, this is good stuff NOW.

    I'm sold on it personally, I'm about to place my order on the phone with verizon.

    If you seem hesitant with the verizon rep about buying now, they'll start tossing in accessories and free overnight shipping. Just FYI.
