    Long time lurker, first time poster. I searched and wasn't able to find an answer, so forgive me if this has been answered before...

    I'm looking to get a new phone this weekend and I'm down to the Droid X or Droid 2. Obviously, they are very similar, with the obvious difference of keyboard and screen size. As a former AT&T Tilt user, I know the benefits of having a hardware keyboard for certain uses... which for me was mostly messaging and gaming. I'm certain the touch keyboard on the X will be just fine for messaging, but I'm curious as to how well it handles gaming. I love to use my phone as a Gameboy substitute on the road, mostly playing older NES/SNES games. And having a hardware keyboard on the Tilt made playing console type games doable.

    But I'd love to ditch the extra hardware and have the bigger screen of the Droid X... so, for those of you that have played roms on it, how does the touchscreen control setup work on the Droid X? I've seen Youtube vids of it in action (), and it looks decent, but what level of precision does it actually give you? Do diagonals work? Are fighting games pretty impossible?

    I see this accessory for the Droid 2 which looks neato (Game Gripper, ), but not something I'd prefer to carry around if the touchscreen controls are good enough. Not having any hands on with either makes judging from videos difficult.

    I'd appreciate any help, thanks in advance.
