    I just read on Droid Life, the new launch date is now May 26th. Looks like it will come with Gingerbread already installed and other nice features, but I think I'm still sticking with my Droid X. Two weeks too late!

    How many Droid X owners will be switching over to X2 or will you keep your Droid X?

    If it has at least 768 MB of ram, yeah. I called Verizon today and a sales rep said it will be out for next week but what do sales reps know. I hope is not 512 of ram !

    Dual core cpu, higher resolution screen and more ram get me more fired up than LTE and a front facing camera. Pocket computer gaming FTW! :icon_ banana:

    Will be staying clear from Motorola until they stop locking down the phone. Their refusal to unlock the bootloader + repeated attempts to keep us from rooting will drive me away from them.

    Well after playing with ROMs on my original droid and my current droid x I am ready to stop playing and start utilizing my phone. 4g will not get to my area for 12-24 months. I want a phone that will carry me from 3G to 4g with as much ram, screen quality and CPU speed as I can get and that means a Droid X2. If it can be rooted and set up to utilize a boot loader then fine, if not then I have much of what I want until I am forced into a 4g unit.

    If im going to upgrade a to a new device LTE is a must. 3G is like phone line, LTE is like fiber. Night and day difference, and another reason my upgrade isnt until next spring...lol

    +1 LTE is no high on my priority list at this time.

    I'll probably upgrade until something better comes out. Have 4 phones on my plan, and two are up in October, but I can do an early upgrade now. With them no longer offering that option, it will be nice to space them out a bit.

    It has 768 MB of RAM, Miss. : )

    The 512 MB was quoted early on in the device when info first came out.

    Are you sure about this? Everything I've read stated it only has 512 MB. (Sure hope your right about the 768 MB's of RAM).

    RUSirius when the first info started coming out it was 512MB, but everything I've seen in the past few weeks said 768MB. Think about it, they HAVE to up the RAM, the Thunderbolt came out with 768MB so they at least have to match it. It would look bad if a phone that came out a few months ago has better specs in that department.

    I hope it's 768, too, but it wouldn't be the first time that a new phone wasn't newer.

    interesting decision between the two. Thunderbolt has front facing camera and is LTE. However, it is not dual core. Droidx2, at least as I read things, does not have the front facing camera but is dual core. However, it is not LTE.



    Who was it that said "It's always something." Isn't that from I Love Lucy? It any rate, decisions decisions decisions. I have to say being able to play with my Droid with the root process makes me feel like I'm living on the edge. Which of course bespeaks how dull my life is otherwise.I used to overclock my computer into a lightning strike blew it up. I now have a complete Intel system which, while stable, cannot be overclocked – at least with the CPU I have.

    Enough. Everyone have a great weekend.
