    That wasn't aimed at you, but I agree. Less Blur is Better Blur. But that screen shot is just plain ugly. :)

    If my next phone has a skin I'm hitting ADW up as soon as I can get the Market running. :D

    For me its launcher pro plus, gTabSimi widget and widget locker lol...

    I don't know if I'll be getting this phone.. If its locked down like the other recent ones then I think I may go elsewhere.. Namely the thunderbolt... I need root badly and seeing the problems UD had with the x and d2 its not looking good.

    Now that HTC has "leaked" the images to the Thunderbolt...I wonder how long it will be before Motorola "leaks" the images to the Etna/Olympus?

    I really want to compare these phones before I pre order the Thunderbolt if at all possible. While I don't like Motoblur...I do love the 1gig of RAM, dual core processor, HDMI port and the motorola accessories.

    I loath blur and not just the launcher but contacts, messaging, gallery etc... I prefer an aosp experience or better yet CM which we'll never see on the DX, or other locked down moto's, until there is a way around the locked bootloader... I love moto build quality and accessories but I love pure android more. Too bad!

    In my opinion The Thunderbolt is no better then the EVO 4G.. Just slimmer. It is not HD no HDMI jack. It is garbage... It can't even compare to the Dual Core Phones!!!

    1gig of ram!? Sweeeeeet! If true. Where did you read this, because this is my first time hearing that it would have a full gig of ram. I actually haven't heard of any phone with a full gig of ram.

    Question, why does everyone complain about the DX being "locked down" when we have root, run rooted apps, overclock, run themes, and more?

    Its mostly for ppl wanting a complete custom ROM. We cant get custom kernels on the DX. And once you update the software it gets kinda tricky with rolling back and other things cuz of the locked bootloader.

    I think you cant even roll back to previous software cuz of the locked bootloader. I dont run ROMs on my X so I'm outta the loop with info about ROMs on the X.
