    I love my droid as much as the next guy but with the rumors of the Nexus One and HTC Incredible's releases in the coming month(s), will this leave our beloved Droids in the dust?

    Only in comparison. Not in reality. Period.

    Yes it does. Totally obsolete. You should PM me and sell me your Droid, then use that money to buy a Nexus One or Incredible.

    Is it time for this subject again?;)

    Do you really think that or are you just looking for reassurance? No the Droid is not obsolete. Blackberry is.

    It just felt like our time on top was short lived before they are selling Droids at a fraction of the price.

    I love my Droid to but mostly due to the Android OS, not the physical phone. In fact I never use the slide out keyboard at all. If we get left behind in ANY 2.1 features I will switch to a N1 when it comes to Verizon in March.

    I decided to get the Droid knowing the nexus 1 was around the corner. I'm still glad I did. This is a terrific device. It does everything I want it to. I'm content.

    Happens with any electronic device. If you want to always have the newest, most marketed device, you're going to have to buy a new phone, new mp3 player, new tv, new computer, new car, etc etc etc every 6 months. You either have to do your research, buy the thing that fits you best at the time you need it, and be happy with it, regardless of what comes next... or be ready to say goodbye to your cash.

    I'm kind of thinking about getting an N1 and passing my Droid down to my wife. However, I'm reserving judgement until I see the screen on the N1 and find out how the battery life is. I can get 12-18 hours out my droid, I want the same from the nexus.

    When the Droid can't handle new functions it'll be obsolete.
    The hardware/software has yet to be tapped out, so it's still a perfectly viable device.

    used my buddies today and WOW. never thought anything of it then having it in my hand and how smooth and quick it is was just wow. and with the sayings now no 2.1 launcher, no live wallpapers, basically were getting screwed on the 2.1 release im thinking me getting a nexus one and my girl is getting my droid. btw, screen is top notch.

    Does any one here who seek the lastest and greastest buy a new car every year? If your trying to keep up with the lastest phone you will spend a lot doing so. When the N1 hits vzw, there will be a better phone than that coming out, then a better one after that & so on. By the way I haven't heard anyone mention the droid 2 coming in Sept.

    Do we honestly believe it's coming when they say it will? The Nexus, that is....

    I don't think there has been any demonstration that the N1 is better then the Droid. Even taking the lack of a physical key board out of the equation, if the N1 gets a few more bells and whistles it just doesn't matter to me.

    As stated there is always going to be something new in the market. Apple doesn't put out a new phone every other month but with Androids open platforms you can expect this to happen. Doesn't mean your phone is obsolete. Just means another advancement in technology. Even if a Droid 2 comes out your Droid would still not be obsolete.

    It gets obsolete when it's used as a paperweight. Like my Blackberry Storm. Anyone want to give me 100 bucks for it? Doubt it. Now that's obsolete.

    If not this week then next week. If not next week then next month. Sooner or later something will come along that will be better. After all, isn't that what happened to the iPhone when the Droid came out? [​IMG]

    It will be obsolete when it no longer serves its purpose. Since day one when my phone rang or I had to call someone it worked. Email comes in, text messages work. What other sort of functionality do you expect from it? Oh yeah, it gets me where I'm going so I don't get lost.

    If you want the latest and greatest that is called being on the cutting edge and while the official updates have not delivered the latest and greatest software my phone currently has live wallpapers, it has a multi-touch browser, it does voice to text keyboard, it does wifi tethering.

    Furthermore, it has a faster performance and a longer battery life than it did when I first got it. How many other items have your purchased in the last couple of years (or ever) that you can say that about?

    As a gadget it has not lost its charm and almost daily I'm tinkering around with it.

    My phone has more technology on it than when I bought it. It actually has more on it today than it did yesterday afternoon (thank you Adamz for SG5.0 and thanks to the other devs for the various roms many of us make use of)

    I haven't seen a phone yet that makes my Droid obsolete.

    Another thing the N1 doesn't have

    I love the speaker on the Droid. I use it with the multimedia dock as an alarm clock/night time MP3 player, music streamer. The N1 has a faster processor and a very nice display but the speaker is very tinny compared to my Droid. I love this darn phone. If only they would fix the bluetooth so it was compatible with my 2007 Nissan's built in bluetooth I would have no complaints what so ever!

    As long as were all here talking and tinkering with them they are not obsolete or even close to it. Also I think most of us here have the live wallpapers and wifi tethering, If you don't your not putting in you time in the forums. The Droid really does do just about everthing.
