    Hello everyone :]

    My name is Johnny. I'm going to be a new Droid user, real soon, hopefully.
    I'm in the process of selling my BlackBerry Storm 2 and am going to get a Droid.
    My dilemma is I just can't decide which one to get! The Droid 2 or the Droid X.

    I've done a lot of video and review searching for the two, but I have never seen a list of comparisons, pros and cons, for the two.

    Anyone want to help me decide? :]

    Looks like I'm going to decide to go with the Droid 2.
    The Droid X seems very powerful in terms of digital media, with the 8 mp cam and high resolution 4.3 inch screen, but I'm not really into taking pictures.
    And the Droid 2 has the QWERTY keyboard, which is really appealing to me.

    Another question, what does "rooted" mean?
    Is it the same as "jail break" and "unlock?

    :welcome: to the Forum, I would suggest a trip to VZW and see the differences between the two, if you havn't already :)

    Welcome.....

    If I were to choose between the X and D2 I would go with the D2. Simply because of the keyboard.

    They are both great devices.

    Welcome! Good to have you with us. It is nice to realize that the title "Incoming" of your post was different from what it meant when I served :)

    Haha. Thanks everyone.
    I decided on the Droid 2, so now I'm looking for any good deals laying around locally or maybe from the internet.
    Anyone have a good site where users sell their unwanted Droid and accessories?

    Sorry, I do not. Perhaps Craigslist, eBay, or Amazon.
