    Man, I miss the days when the OG Droid ruled upon these forums. Heck all of the ROM's were completely pwning the forums... you wanted to theme something? OG Droid...

    Well my friends... what are you moving on to now?

    I am seriously eyeballing the Droid 3... I enjoy the concept...

    Anyone else got some thoughts on our old Betsy? And where the hell else are you thinking of moving on to?

    I agree. The D1 started a real revolution for Android. Will be missed when its time to move on.

    I am getting the D3. Locked bootloader or not its the only slider phone coming out and I need that physical keyboard. Plus its specs ain't bad either ;)

    Is it too much to ask for vanilla now a days from Verizon? With all the fiascos and drama I almost rather wait till 3rd and 4th Quarters .... keeping my fingers crossed.

    I'm still rockin' my Droid. Haven't seen anything worth upgrading to yet. I think I may finally upgrade with the Bionic or Targa... or whatever they're going to call it. Especially with the talk of Motorola easing up on the lockdown.

    In the meantime, SS 5.2 with the lv 1.1ghz kernel is keeping me satisfied.

    I've still got my d1, still works fine, but my cat knocked my keyboard onto it, so I'm working with a shattered screen. mer.....

    I think I'm gonna wait for the Targa/Bionic, it just looks brilliant, and since I started using Swype, I rarely ever use the slider

    Still using the heck out of my D1 as well. Also considering Bionic/Targa. I would love to say D3 but I can't see myself getting another 3G phone and keeping it another 20 months. By then I would think 4G will have taken over. Plus I too am using physical keyboard less and less. I don't understand why these new phones D3, X2, I2 are all coming out 3G if Big Red is pushing the heck out of 4G??

    Because within 6 months (or less) 4G is going to be an additional $10 - $20 a month on top of the $30 data plan....without tethering.

    I really hope Moto unlocks the bootloader for the D3. But I agree with jstafford, locked or unlocked I will probably make my move on that machine.

    They are using the tbolt as a pilot for the 4G network, we already know. Thy are probably going to wait until the new data plans before they release the next fleet of 4G phones so everyone will then have to pay the extra for them.

    Not to put a ROM on a pedestal because I haven't tried any others, but Bugless brought this OG Droid back from the dead. D3 and/or Targa look ready to take the reigns.
