    yes

    droid X is an awesome phone - im not a fan of the motoblur on it - even though it is ALOT better than the devour & cliq - but then again on my phone i have a clock, power control, and calendar - nothing more, everything else i access from the app drawer. not a deal breaker and i definitely see value in the overlay/widgets

    i for one will be holding out for the "third" droid of 2010 - with the 2ghz processor and *hopefully* lte support

    I have a line eligible and very tempted but I think I'll hold out till the holidays, and my wife might send me a divorce decree if I did. I gotta admit she has been really patient with me and my mDroid.

    This is my question as well - the broader question being whether those who got a Droid at launch last November will be allowed to upgrade to this phone at launch. The email I got from Verizon said that I could get the Droid X on July 15 for $199, so I'm thinking the plan is to allow this. However, if you read the press release, it says the early upgrade is only for people who's contracts expire before the end of the year. Interestingly, most of those people would already be eligible for an upgrade on July 15 anyway.

    you guys think they would let me off and get a 2 year upgrade on the droid x? Lol... my upgrade is 1/04/11 !!!! Four days after 2010... my damn bad luck.. they better let me get the upgrade.. I ordered 3 phones from them for full retail so they should let me off with the 4 days off of new years. :( Two droids and blackberry tour.

    I just noticed an interesting tidbit. The Droid X boasts image stabilization. Is this REAL image stabilization?

    Could we be getting a camera that is worthy of taking real pics?

    If so, here's to hoping I can get one... dancedroid

    I would assume he got the same email as I did which is just the generic email noting the release of the phone if you signed up for release information from VZW. It notes the 199 price in there but does say if you are eligible for upgrade....

    Current Phone Model:
    LG G3 (VZW), Nexus 7 v2
    So I will be one year into a two year contract on December 29th. At that time I would be due for an early upgrade. So does this mean I could do my early upgrade early???

    You have 30 days to take it back to take it back and swap for the Droid X.

    As for video chat. Do you really forsee yourself using it? Is it worth the Apple world to have that? Are you ok with going to Sprint for the Evo should you need it?
