    My wife went into the Verizon store today to pay our bill for the year and was talking to the tech there and brought up the fact that I was anxiously waiting for the Droid X to come out in July. He told her that I should not waste my time. He said I should get the original Droid instead. he said something about the operating system is no good and that it overlaps??? He said you cant do as much as you can with the Droid. and that a lot of the apps will not work with the X. This clearly goes against everything I have seen and read about the X. Is this guy crazy and just trying to push the original Droid. Please help, I'm running out of high blood pressure pills. THANKS. :icon_cussing:

    No that guy is a total [Edited by FoxKat for content]. X>Droid when it comes out, it just may take a little while to get root.

    I'm not really interested in rooting my phone I don't have a lot experience in those things. Is that the only way the X will be better??

    Yeah he's crazy : )

    The X will surely deliver the goods.

    The Moto Droid is no slouch though. Obviously you can do more with the Droid because the dev community is behind it but for him to say those things about the X is just ludicrous.

    Make your choice after July 15th when you get some hands on experience with the X. The Droid may in fact be a better choice for YOU or it may not.

    Do some research and decide for yourself. It should become very obvious which phone is the better device. It sounds like the guy you talked to was just trying to make an immediate sale. You should probably avoid this rep in the future. Go with somebody more willing to be honest, even if it means delaying a sale.

    How can the dev community be behind the Droid more than the X?? They use the same operating system right? I dont understand. Is there something I can read to learn more about what you are talking about. I dont wish to waste your time but I do want to learn so I can make the best decision in July.

    I think what he most likely meant by the OS and such is probably issues with motoblur. Probably under the impression that it runs the devour version if blur. If that were the case, then.i would say regardless of specs, yeah the droid is better than the x because that old blur is horrendous

    Rooting methods vary from phone to phone. Not only that custom roms will not work from phone to phone. They have to be optimized for each phone. Yes they run the same os but the droid has one of the largest modding/hacking communities around. That's not saying the X can't get to that point but the droid has a good 8 month lead on the X in terms of development.

    We do know what version of blur it is. It is a sleeker more refined and elegant form of blur. Te devours form of blur was clunky, slow, and ugly in my opinion. This new version is a lot nicer.
