    The time will come when you pre-order a phone like a pc... just give it a few more years.

    That's a fanboy rant. There are several android phones superior to the Droid from a technical standpoint though in my opinion NONE of them are a big enough leap to justify switching if you already own a Droid, though if I were buying a new smart-phone today I would not be buying a Droid.

    If you're an Android fan then it doesn't matter what Android phone is the most successful. You just want the platform in general to be successful and to have the option of picking and choosing the best phone for you.

    That is true, too but don't forget the droid is a better gaming device than Nexus, Incredible since its a known fact that every Open GL games run faster on the droid than the any of the snapdragon powered phone.

    Well it looks as if the Shadow is going to be a sweet little device. Not to mention that the Motoroi just released in the U.S. today on Cincinnati Bell. It is a GSM phone VERY close to the Shadow in specs, including the HDMI out. So hopefully we'll see this one coming to AT&T or T-Mo soon as well.

    I agree that out may very well be launching with 2.2 if that benchmark and device is to be believed.

    It's 600mhz vs 1ghz, which is good at showing the architecture scales well with die shrinks, but if you clock a 3430 to 1ghz you'd probably get similar performance. Although, not in the same power/heat envelope.

    I believe we'll see a 3640@720mhz in the Shadow which while still a good jump in performance I think 2.2 on the old droid will keep me happy until and handset with dual core ARM-9 is available.
