    I am just not sold on the Droid X, I was when it was announced and when I first saw the vids. But now its like, "ehh"; it seems like the Nexus to me, all the hype with out as much of the bang.
    Maybe its me, and I am not hear to flame or bash. It is a nice device, but now all the hype about it has left. Maybe I was so psyched up on the new Predators movie; and when it did not live up to my hype, it brought the perception that nothing will ever live up to the hype. That rarely in a blue moon does something really live up to the hype.
    I could be wrong, this could be this years droid and sell out big.

    There is nothing wrong with having a change of opinion about something.:)

    I am with you on this. I have used an evo and thought it was too big. This is lacking in areas compared to it and is even bigger. Personally I'm not convinced it will sell given its shortcomings and overall size (incredible is still better if you can get one). I am not sure it would even fit into my pants pocket comfortably if at all, and I know it wouldn't fit into my girlfriends.

    I'm not ready to get rid of my Droid. I see no reason for a new phone at this time.

    1. It's too expensive

    2. Droid is more flexible at this time

    3. I don't need to have the latest toys that come out. Some people around here do.

    I like the Droid X. It will be a GREAT device but I couldn't give up my Droid for it.

    I'm still waiting for the big Moto device at the end of the year.

    Im pretty happy with the Moto Droid. When a device comes along that knocks my socks off I'll switch, until then I'll sit with my current upgrade and use it wisely.

    Slapping a bigger screen and the letter X on a Droid, and taking away my Physical Keyboard and Custom ROMs are not good selling points for me

    I'll wait...MDP

    it does feel a tad bit like a hype machine... maybe that's just b/c we're so immersed in Android around here

    my droid is a great toy, but also a great tool, and i see no reason (for me) to go with the X... plus i don't like the idea of anything bigger

    plus... as weird as this sounds... i tend to bond with my stuff... car, tools, whatever... and the droid has been a huge help for us in a lot of situations, so i've kinda bonded with it :icon_eek:
