    Droid-Life’s been tipped with some information regarding that ever-so-popular November 11th date we’ve heard of before: the Droid 2 Global, Droid Pro, and the Motorola Citrus will all launch on that day, just two weeks ahead of Black Friday festivities. We’ve also heard of the HTC Merge possibly getting a November 11th launch date previously. It’s hard to imagine this many high profile launches going down the same day (even the now-official Palm Pre 2 is being set for November 11th), but we’re excited if that turns out to be the case.

    They have been, and still can be. The G2 ordeal was blown way out of proportion. All it is is a hardware bug and the usual locked hboot, which can be unlocked just like any other hboot.

    According to everything I have read and specific threads over at XDA it is real and no bug. I would like to read some information that it can be rooted. I have a Droid X but Verizon has pissed me off for the last time so I am likely going to T-Mo over Sprint. I would like the G2 because of HSPA+ but if Not is will be the Vibrant.

    First off, nice try at getting passed the sensor... I've never seen that one before.

    Second, what do you see in the Droid 2 Global? It's a D2 with a slightly faster processor and a spare radio that you will use once or twice a year (unless you are a constant traveler).

    ahhaha thanks, something I picked up along the way :p
    That. Up until now I've had to choose between Windows Mobile and Blackberry for VZW smartphone use abroad, neither of which I'm a fan of. I plan on making heavy use of the SIM slot (assuming it's unlockable)
