    I'm keeping my Droid at least until I am up for renewal on my new every two which will be in September. Then I'll look around and see what's available. Probably I will go with the Droid 2.

    My upgrade is in January, so i'm going to wait for the next Droid phone after the Droid 2. My Droid 1 will be good enough for me until then

    Probably won't decide until both the Shadow and the Droid 2 have been out for a week or two. I want specs but also user experiences with both. Since I don't use the keyboard much, I am considering the Shadow.

    this exactly. not that i feel "stuck" in a contract, but i am certain that the shadow won't be the "latest and greatest" come nov 2011... having said that, if i hadn't already gotten a droid, i would probably be all over this thing.

    I think a lot of us are in this boat. Happy with the current phone, not spending extra to get one sooner, glad to see advances being made.

    11/11 would be a full two years which means we are good for a new one around Sept right?

    I'm waiting on my first DROID the Incredible. But usually I don't buy new phones until my contract is up. So by the time my contract is over hopefully Sony will have a smartphone or PSPhone by then.

    That shadow looks sick, I think most of all the people here got the droid 1 at the beginning of this year so I'm sure at the beginning of 2012 or at the end of 2011 they will come out with a bad a** phone. For all the people got the Droid 1

    I said this might be the first time I get a phone at retail price. I never have before and I probably never will. But I want this Shadow. And the Droid 2. I want both. lol

    But good launcher apps, good call quality and reception...my Droid could last for years as long as I dont destroy the screen. Good launcher apps makes a world of difference.

    I would personally wait unless you have an upgrade coming really soon. within the next few months to a year I hear vz is turning on 4g/lte to a huge swath of it's markets and it looks like some dual core phones using tegra 2 might be just around the corner... now those would probably be worth the wait =) even without 4g abilities.

    At this time, I would first like to have answers to 2 questions:
    1) Specs for both Moto devices
    2) Specs for iPhone

    I got the Moto Droid and for the first time I am still madly in love with my phone. I will probably wait until my contract is up, July 2011. I think I got a year left of love on this phone. Ive never had a phone for more then 6 months before but as we all know the Droid isnt like any other phone

    The droid is indeed a great phone. I also will wait until my upgrade in march of next year. Im waiting for a phone with a 4" screen or bigger, Sense ui, android 3.0, hdmi,4g, and a dual core snapdragon processor (or whatever is out by then,) That will be my next phone. Until then, droid 1 all the way!

    IDK... It's gon be between one of the two most likely... I kinda like the bigger screen on the Shadow, but I'm loving my Droid 1 so who knows what goodies await us on the D2... better keyboard is a definite plus... only thing is I use Swype without fail... So I don't "necessarily" know that I need a keyboard but having one has proved useful at times... so we'll see... I haven't heard good things of motoblur so that's not a selling point for me. Can't wait tho!!!
