    It looks like it is 0.03" longer than the Droid, which means that it might not fit into the Droid home dock. :( Oh well, I still have 11 months on my contract.

    Yes, I tell the Door Person "no thanks" when they ask if they can help me and find the newest Droid, download Quadrant, run some tests and give out advice to would be new Android Device Owners, the customers appreciate it, but sometimes I get dirty looks from the sales people

    With 3G hotspot; wouldn't that mean it comes with 2.2 installed?

    Thanks. I'll go into the store to play with one this weekend. I like the idea of a full and clean (not patched) Froyo dancedroid. I still have to wait till November for my official update date though and by that time whatever I get will have this. I never realized I had this much patience.....

    Upgrade?

    I got the original Motorola Droid early December. This summer has been frustrating because it keeps doing the usual thing people have mentioned, shutting off randomly and turning back on. It particularly sucked when I had to go to work in the morning and it decided to shut off and turn back on in the middle of the night, opening up all of the unwanted apps, then draining my battery, leaving me with no alarm to wake me up.
    I have read from everyone having this problem that they return their phones and Verizon gets them a new motorola droid. I was about to do this last night but saw they had taken it off the Verizon online store. Does this mean if we get a new one from the store now we will get the second generation?

    this is bullcrap, i ordered mine today at 230 AM est and still haven't got any shipping confirmation! How is someone who ordered at 8 AM order being placed before someone who ordered at 230 AM? Makes no sense to me

    Perhaps different areas of the country and different warehouses. Just a guess. Or perhaps someone at Verizon doesn't like you. :)

    I got to play with one today! It is amazing. The browser loads flash sites soooooo seamlessly. I had a D1 ****ty moto blurr but not for nothing I like the twiiter/facebook apps so I can see when new stuff is out. ADW will be a must on this. They relocated the mic so there is no "double chinning" it when you hold it against your shoulder to talk on the phone. The camera did not make that weird focusing noise when enabled and loaded way quicker.

    Should I keep my X or return it for the d2? hmmmmmm what are the devs going to be playing with?

    The bigger screen is nice but does have its draw backs....I find myself using go go gadget finger to reach my favorites on the dialer and the hard buttons are kinda clicky, noisy.

    just my 2 cents....hope this helps

    Oh....the 8 gig card is a disappointment (why not 16 like the d1 and X)

    My droidx on 2.1 has the 3g hotspot feature. I don't use it though, I just tether with a root app.

    :blink: :biggrin: :rofl3:

    ...and for those who's 2yr is up by December, I heard they'll move up the date for the purchase of the D2 this month (or something like that)....at least that's what I thought i heard on this board in the News section....i'm still bummin' because my 1yr isn't up until February...maybe i can scrape up $200 and beg them to give me an early upgrade on my early upgrade :p ... the fact that flash sites load so well on that have me drooling. i tried loading a flash tv show via the flash mobile site, and the playing quality sucked hard (and that's with wifi connection)

    Update:
    I called the Verizon store and was told that if we were to return a faulty generation 1, then Verizon will replace for it another generation 1, as long as the store still has it; they have a factory amount of generations 1s specifically for this purpose, so that people can replace their phones if needed. However, once the store runs out, they will start replacing your phone with generation 2s. I guess I will wait then.....:blackdroid:
