    Loooooong time BB user. I'm talking 2000-2001 before BB's even existed and RIM was making the "AOL Mobile Communicator."

    MCSE, RHCSE, always been the BES Architect/Engineer at corporations where I have worked.

    Tired of BB always lagging behind so making the jump to Android.

    After much debate I ordered an X as opposed to the 2.

    Problem is, I don't care much about media... I don't watch many videos on my phones, don't listen to music (still have an iPod for that), and RARELY do any serious web surfing. I am however a HUGE user of email, IM's, texting etc. So even though all of this suggests that I should probably get a Droid 2, I couldn't help but order the X. Anyone know why? LOL

    I had the original BB Storm, and I have used iPhones so I'm not new to touchscreens.

    I guess I'll give the X a shot for a week or so and trade it for a 2 if I'm not happy. Any thoughts? Feel free to vote in the poll above :)

    I suggest a visit to a VZW store and giving each phone a test drive. The X is larger which many do not like. The choice is personal go test drive.

    +1 on the trip to VZW just don't let a salesperson talk you into something you don't want

    Gotta go with the visit to the store. It's like buying a car; everyone has a different need so you have to see what's best for you.

    If I've got to pay for it, you're going to get a Droid X. If you are going to pay for it, get the one you want. As said before, visit the Verizon store and play with them. Ignore the sales people.

    You may find a droid disappointing in Email handling compared to a Crackberry. But there are apps in the market place to download that are much better then the native droid apps for mail. K9 for one.
