    Is the droid community poop now? Just kidding.

    The droid has such a special place in my heart it's the only phone I've had for more than six months, I'm sure moto and vzw will work out one that is on the lte network... That's my hope anyways. Then I get the best of all world.

    Have they finally decided to start calling this the droid2.0? I've heard sites say it def is and def isn't... not sure what to believe. But if anyone has seen the benchmark thread on howardforums showing the shadow you have to wonder if it was on 2.1 or 2.2.

    considering it was just under a 2.2 nexus with it's massive speed increase with the update it really makes you kinda get excited to hope that it was running 2.1 and to see what that beast will do on 2.2, especially if it gets modded and overclocked at all.

    It's doesn't have priority over a better phone coupled with the best network, the Droid is better than the HTC units I've seen.

    Ekk can't edit lol, also what has me a little worried is the news of Motorola locking their bootloader (or whatever its called) as far as I know I don't think milestone owners can flash Roms yet (not sure though) and future devices might be in the same situation. So I dunno lol.

    This worried me too, but I guess we have to wait and see what happens.

    Xda is huge but I'm still not sold on htc.

    Me also lol, gizmodo got me really confused. Now they're saying this is the droid shadow, and the droid 2 will be the droid 2 xtreme. They're also saying the droid 2 won't be better spec'd than the shadow. They say that the shadow will have 16 gigs of internal mem while the droid 2 will only have 2. So I dunno anymore lol.

    This looks like a nice phone, but I'm very happy to stick with my Droid. There aren't any phones coming in the near future that would make me reconsider that position.

    No. Put simply unless the device is sporting an OMAP 44xx, Cortex A-9 based SoC I see no need to upgrade from my Droid. Slightly larger screens and HDMI out does not justify the switch from a device which is rock solid, rooted and highly customizable as well as having the ability to overclock.

    I'm waiting on the DROID 2 and DROID pro then I will compare them with the DROID shadow/extreme and make my decision. Until then I'm going with the original dancedroid.
