    I bought one around 6 months ago that was NIB. It was stolen from me last week, naturally I bought another Droid, but bought a used one since I didn't have much money. I noticed this one had a white camera button. I thought it was purely cosmetic, until I used the keyboard. Wow. The keyboard on this thing is amazing, well as good as a flat keyboard could be, the other one felt awful and I hated using it. I think I will use landscape on this more often. Does anyone know how many revisions there are? The one I bought had been used for 1 and a half years, so I assume it might be one of the original model.

    No revisions on the original Droid. The "white" camera button is because the gold covering has come off. Mine did the very same thing. Keyboard is probably just "broke in" which is why it has a different feel. OG Droid is the A855, no revisions unless you count the Droid 2.

    At the beginning, there were 2 versions of the keyboard out. A pre-bubbled one that had each button bubbled up a little (much easier to use) and a completely flat version that some people reported bubbled after some use.

    My first D1 was pre-bubbled. My warranty replacement is completely flat and hasn't bubbled even with heavy use.

    And yes, under the gold plating it is just white plastic.

    Oh haha, you're right, I looked at it and it seems that there is a bit of gold around the edges! I thought I used my Droid enough to break it in, but apparently not. The pre-bubbled feel is awesome.

    I just noticed something else. The charging light on my old one was a rounded soft glow, the one on this one is a clearish square LED. Is this cosmetic the only difference?
