    Congratulations on the DX! You'll love it :). Im not sure about apps that are exclusive to the X, but I can tell you that the ones that you had on the Droid 1 will run better (although if you were rooted that might not be as true). You can also hold many, many more as you've probably noticed. 8 GB is awesome!

    If you were running Froyo on your droid, then there will be no difference as to what apps you can run on the X.

    I thought it would be Huge.. as I have been using my Droid 1 since last November.. and it feels great in my hand.. the bigger screen and more Ram..is great. I dont like the fact that they have so much Bloat ware on it. It seems so Cluttered, I would root it like my Droid..but not sure .. since Gingerbread may be coming soon..

    whaaaaAA? not rooting because gingerbread is coming out? you should root because gingerbread is coming out. i came off my incredible that was running gingerbread fairly smoothly and now i'm disappointed that the best the x can do now is gingerbread themes. root it duh. i took almost every VZW apk off mine. then overclocked it. it's an easy decision.

    i would root mine like i did my org. droid, but i have a mac and it was just a pain asking everyone if i could use their computer just to do it or undo it. but i have to say i am loving how my phone runs at the moment i may get bored with it and root, if there is a easier way

    You don't need a computer to root, or install a rom. You can use z4root app for a one click rooting method.

    +1 on using Z4 Root to root your X. Snag the apk from xda forums, put the apk file on your sd card, install using Astro File Manager, open Z4 Root app and select Permanent Root. Done. :)

    Z4root has never worked for me. Running rageagainstthecage through terminal emulator on the phone always works well.
