    I think alot of people are in the same boat as you. The droid has such full potential to be extended that there is no reason to upgrade until the holiday season in my opinion. I had been getting tired of my droid, but then the Froyo rom completely blew away my expectations and I am completely happy with my phone. I'm running 1.25GHz, smooth as can be...so the Droid pro will probably be my next upgrade.

    You're crazy.
    (Just kidding.)
    Since I've rooted my Droid, installed the latest Froyo ROM, and gotten all the apps I need, the Droid I've got does everything I need. I probably won't upgrade until the modding community stops supporting the Droid. Once I settle on a device I tend to hang on to it until there is a feature available that I need or would be really useful if I had. An HDMI out is nice, but at the moment I can't think of a situation where I'd actually have a use for it. Just me, but once I find a device that does everything I need/want like the Droid, I generally hang on to it until absolutely no one is using that model.

    The new Droid X's 1 GHz TI OMAP 3630 processor is manufactured with 45 nm features. The current Droid uses 65 nm features. Shrinking the chip reduces power consumption. A 65 nm CPU overclocked to 1 GHz will consume more power than it's 45 nm counterpart.

    This assumes both CPUs are running at high speed (heavy CPU load). If the CPUs are running mostly low CPU loads then the net power consumption could be similar.

    One reason I'm excited about getting the Dalvik JIT in Android 2.2 is faster code execution for apps. This will mean that apps run faster which makes them more responsive and consume less CPU resources by not constantly reinterpreting their bytecode.

    True, but on the other hand, there is a lot more screen to power.

    Yeah if you don't use it then it's just a waste, personally I can't live without it. The pictures of the D2 keyboard look real nice, but outside of that improvement it is "almost" the same Droid....really though who knows untill the devices are officially announced and released what they are going to be packing under the hood.

    I am definately holding out for the DroPro
