    I am seeing more and more people bypassing the dx for the droid 2. The big reason is that it has a keyboard. I played with the droid x and I gladly give up a little screen size for a keyboard. Now If they come out with a device the size of the DX with a keyboard I may have to give it a look. The droid 2 just feels like a better device with better software but that is my opinion. Dont get me wrong the droid x is a nice phone and I would prefer it over the iphone....but if I had to choose between the DX and the D2 again. It will be the D2. And I am seeing more and more people do the same.....

    You're right. I had the Droid x before the Droid 2. I returned my Droid x partially because it was faulty, and partially because the Droid 2 had similar high end specs and a physical keyboard (which I consider a must have feature).

    So far I happy with my 2. And for me the keyboard was the deciding factor.

    Everyone has the right to choose a sub-standard device if they wish :D

    Quality is experience and preference, not fact in most cases. My opinion is that some people are not needing the extra screen or features of the dx. Sub-standard is a very aggressive term to use based on your opinions though. I got my d2 on preference. The dx was not right for me. Too large mostly and the shape threw me off. I use the keyboard tons and like having my screen for writing notes, poems,music and other stuff...also for emulators and such.

    Hello, PC747.

    I'd definitely have a look at it too. I've actually been waiting for something like that to come up.

    Hi, Mark.

    All I meant was that I could really use a D2 with a DX screen size and, therefore, QWERTY keyboard. If it had a Dual Core Processor, all the better. (I know you didn't quote me, but in case you thought that I thought that.)

    Hate, Hate, Hate physical keyboards. I was chomping at the bit to ditch my D1 for the X.

    I'm using the keyboard right now to type this message.. idk why but I'm not big on it. If I had a choice it'd be the dx.
